When it comes to dental implants, there are many different types. One type that is commonly used and very helpful is full arch implants West Palm Beach. Knowing if you are a candidate for this type of implant is important to your overall oral health.
One Full Arch of Teeth
That’s right, all on 4 dental implants are one full arch of teeth. Like other dental implants, they still require some small titanium screws inserted into the jaw bone. Much like single dental implants, all on 4 implants will eventually fuse to your jaw bone and become a part of your mouth. They are called all on 4 implants because of the four screws needed to attach the entire implant.
When You Would Need Them
Typically, anytime you would be a candidate for dentures you would also be a candidate for all on 4 dental implants. If the rest of your teeth in the arch are healthy chances are you will be a candidate for a single implant but in some cases, you might need more than one. All on 4 is a better alternative to dentures.
How Long Does It Take to Install?
The actual installation won’t take long. The scans and fitting of your new teeth might take a couple visits but the surgery/installation itself should be done in one visit. You will experience a little discomfort following surgery as your jaw bone fuses together with the implants, but that should subside in the coming days.
