Back in the day people who with missing teeth and those with dentures didn’t have many options. It was pretty much dentures, partial dentures or dental bridges. Back then there was no such thing as All on 4s either.
Thankfully things have changed with dental implants in Everett leading the way. However, these days’ even people who haven’t had the luxury of teeth for years can still qualify for All on 4 dental implants.
All on 4s are Phenomenal
Avenue Dental in Everett has dental implants for everyone including those who wear dentures. Because of bone loss, which is natural with missing teeth, people had to endure bone grafting surgery along with dental implant surgery.
A natural process with tooth loss, bone loss occurs because there is nothing to hold the tooth root into place. This is because the tooth root exercises the bone.
The same thing occurs with a dental screw or post. Made from titanium or Zirconia, dental implants fuse to the bone over time.
This is called osseointegration and is successful 95 to 96 percent of the time. However, if people smoke or take medications that impede healing, there is a risk of dental implant failure.
Why All On 4s
Because All on 4s are suitable for nearly everyone they make the perfect choice. Whether you have failing teeth, have been wearing dentures for years or just want to make the move and get rid of your broken smile All on 4s could be the answer.
These tooth replacements consist of two arches that hold two rows of artificial teeth. The teeth are on plates and surgically implanted into your jawbone with four screws, hence the name.
All on 4s, affectionately known as Teeth in a Day take a single day for placement. In fact, in most cases people who are having teeth pulled are able to have All on 4s placed on the same day. What that means is a brand new set of teeth in a single dental appointment.
