The second week of August is National Smile Week, making it a great time to reflect on how much you truly love your pearly whites. If you have many cracked or missing teeth, then it may be time for a change. For people who need to replace all of the teeth in their mouth, all-on-4 dental implants are a fantastic option that provide numerous benefits.


No Grafting Necessary

Before receiving a single implant, some people will need a bone grafting procedure done first. The reason for this is that the implant is inserted directly into the jawbone, so if that tissue has weakened in any way, then it needs to be strengthened to support the new structure. Since all-on-4 dental implants are inserted at 45 degree angles, they remain firmly in place while simultaneously fusing with the bone.


Less Time in the Periodontist’s Chair

For traditional implants, patients need to schedule multiple appointments over the course of several months. It is a big time commitment, but with all-on-4 dental implants, patients will be able to enjoy their new smiles immediately. The treatment only requires one surgery that lasts a few hours.


Fewer Health Issues Associated With Missing Teeth

Losing teeth increases a person’s likelihood of developing periodontal disease. There is also a risk the remaining teeth in the mouth will shift out of their normal positions, further complicating a person’s bite. Finally, since the implants stimulate the jawbone tissue, there is less of a risk of that tissue resorbing back into the body, which tends to happen after a tooth is lost.
