Restoring Confidence With All on 4 Implants Edmonton
Is tooth loss impacting your self-esteem, making you hesitant to share your smile with the world?
At Life Dentistry, we understand the impact that missing or damaged teeth can have on your confidence and overall quality of life. That’s why we offer a revolutionary solution to restore your smile and give you back the confidence you deserve: All-on-4 Dental Implants. Our team of experienced dentists and specialists in Edmonton are here to guide you through this transformative journey towards a complete and natural-looking smile.
What Are All on 4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 Dental Implants are an innovative solution that allows patients to replace an entire arch of teeth using just four dental implants. Unlike traditional dentures, which sit on top of the gums and require adhesive, All on 4 Dental Implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, providing stability and function similar to natural teeth.
What Are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
- Improved Stability. All-on-4 Dental Implants give you a firm and solid foundation for your mouth. This eradicates the concern of loose dentures while allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently without the fear of dislodged dentures.
- Enhanced Appearance. All-on-4 Dental Implants not only replace lost teeth but also greatly improve the look of your smile. They are designed to appear natural, blending seamlessly with existing teeth for a revitalized, attractive smile.
- Preservation of Jaw Bone. Unlike traditional dentures, All-on-4 Dental Implants stimulate the jawbone, mimicking the function of natural teeth roots. This stimulation helps to prevent bone loss, which can occur when teeth are missing, thereby maintaining the structural integrity of your facial features.
- Long-lasting Solution. All-on-4 Dental Implants are durable and designed for longevity, providing a permanent solution compared to other denture options. They provide a reliable alternative to traditional dentures, eliminating the need for adhesives or nightly removal.
The All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure
Step 1: Initial Consultation and Treatment Planning
During your initial consultation, our dental specialists will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants. This involves examining the condition of your remaining teeth, evaluating bone density, and assessing your overall oral health.
Step 2: Implant Placement and Temporary Restoration
Once you are deemed eligible for the procedure, our skilled dentists will surgically place four titanium implants into your jawbone. These implants act as artificial tooth roots, providing a strong foundation for the replacement teeth. You will be provided with temporary restorations to ensure both functionality and aesthetics during the healing process.
Step 3: Final Restoration
After a period of healing, during which the implants fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, the final restoration phase begins. Our denture specialists will design and craft a customized set of hybrid dentures that will replace your temporary restorations. These hybrid dentures are securely attached to a titanium bar, which is anchored onto the implants, ensuring a stable and comfortable fit.
Maintaining Your All-on-4 Dental Implants
Maintaining your All-on-4 dental implants is crucial to ensure their longevity and your overall oral health. Here are some tips:
Regular Brushing and Flossing. Just like your natural teeth, All-on-4 implants should be brushed at least twice a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid scratching the surface of your implants. Floss daily to remove any food particles lodged between the implants.
Use an Interdental Brush. An interdental brush can help clean hard-to-reach areas between your implants and under the prosthetic bridge.
Rinse With an Antibacterial Mouthwash. Rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash to kill bacteria and freshen your breath.
Regular Dental Check-Ups. Regular check-ups with your dentist are important to ensure your implants are in good condition. Your dentist will check for any signs of gum disease or implant failure.
Avoid Hard and Sticky Foods. Hard and sticky foods can damage your implants. Try to stick to softer foods, especially in the first few weeks after getting your implants.
No Smoking. Smoking can lead to implant failure by impairing bone healing. If you’re a smoker, try to quit or reduce your smoking habit.
Limit Alcohol Consumption. Excessive alcohol consumption can also negatively impact your dental implants, as it can contribute to bone loss.
Our team at Life Dentistry will provide you with comprehensive instructions and guidance on how to care for your new smile properly.
