Tooth loss happens for all kinds of reasons, but it doesn’t have to ruin your smile. At Asheville Dental, we offer All on 4 dental implants which replaces the need for dentures, gives you back your confidence, and takes place in just one day.
More than 35 million people in America are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth. It used to be that dentures were the only permanent solution. However, even the best fitting set is cumbersome and over time may require replacement. In the worst case scenario, a bad set of dentures is virtually the same as having no dentures at all.
All on 4 is a permanent solution for those patients who need need all of their teeth replaced. It is an implant system that looks natural. Rather than dentures, this unique method is four separate dental implants that come together to make a functional mouth and a healthy smile.
How Does It Work?
The technique requires the precise placement of titanium implants, anchored into a patient’s jawbone, to provide a “root-like” support for prosthetic teeth. Minor surgery is required to insert the four implants. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a highly realistic-looking and functional prosthetic tooth. Because the implant is made of titanium, it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone and function as part of it. The dental implant eventually becomes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong and enduring foundation for your new teeth.
