Tooth loss is not only aesthetically problematic; it is also downright unhealthy for your smile. That is why our Saint Louis tooth replacement dentists offer a number of effective tooth replacement treatments to help patients rebuild and restore their smiles. One of these treatments is called All-On-Four, and today we’re going to be giving you some more information about how this tooth replacement treatment works, and why it is so popular among patients.
First, the name: “All-on-Four,” This catchy moniker refers to this treatment’s ability to replace multiple teeth at once. All-on-Four allows patients to stabilize a full denture (or all of one’s missing teeth) with just a few strategically placed implant roots (on four).
This treatment is an alternative to individual stand-alone dental implants. Rather than replacing teeth with single implant roots and crowns, All-on-Four replaces consecutive missing teeth with permanent bridges and dentures.
Patients love All-on-Four treatment because the dental prostheses we use to replace teeth are completely customized to suit the patient’s needs. In terms of aesthetics, we shape, size, and shade the patient’s replacement teeth to look natural and healthy. There are no one-size-fit-all replacement teeth in our office.
Another benefit of All-on-Four is that it offers exceptional stability for the patient’s denture or bridge. You’ll find that it’s simple to eat, drink, and care for your smile normally once your implant-stabilized denture is in place. Additionally, the implant roots that we use to stabilize replacement teeth offer a number of health advantages for the patient, including helping the patient maintain healthy bone density.
Don’t let tooth loss destroy your smile and your oral health. There are high-quality, patient-friendly tooth replacement treatments available. As always, please feel free to reach out to our Saint Louis All-on-Four dentists to get more information and to schedule a personal consultation with our team.
