Are you dealing with the total loss of your upper or lower dental arch? With All-on-Four Implants from Mansfield Dental Center, you can restore your look and functionality with minimal surgery.
The pain and anxiety caused by complete upper or lower tooth loss can be debilitating. For years, cumbersome dentures or extensive reconstruction were the only options available for the 35 million Americans suffering from this life-altering condition. While dentures help many patients regain some function, they are limited and require a good deal of daily maintenance. A total reconstruction is both costly and painful, requiring any number of implant surgeries.
Thankfully, with All-on-Four Implants from Mansfield Dental Center, there is another option. Using advanced dental technology, your Mansfield dentist can place a permanent prosthetic using just four implants. These implants anchor your new teeth in place, instantly repairing your bite function.
Your replacement teeth will be custom created for you. Not only will you regain the ability to enjoy your favorite meals and snacks, but you will also see a dramatic improvement in your appearance. Your All-on-Four implants will mimic your natural teeth, rebuilding the shape of your jaw and restoring your smile.
A dental implant is a small titanium post surgically inserted into your jawbone. This little screw provides an anchor point for any number of dental implants.
Titanium is biocompatible, meaning the bone will eventually heal around the implant and incorporate the metal into the bone structure. As a bonus, this process will halt future bone loss, leading to a healthier jaw and a secure bond.
With total tooth loss, placing an individual implant for each tooth is far too invasive. As an alternative, your dentist will place just four implants around your upper or lower gums. These implants will match perfectly with the new full bridge, creating a strong anchor. Once the bridge is placed, your new smile is ready for the world. Say goodbye to tedious dentures forever.
The first step in considering All-on-Four implants is a conversation with your dentist. Call our Mansfield dentist office today to schedule your consultation.
During that process, your dentist will access your health and the state of your tooth loss. While All-on-Four is less impactful than some reconstruction alternatives, it does still require surgery. Once our team gives you the all clear, they will take a set of molds and images to craft your new smile.
On the day, your dentist will place the implants. This process may also include removing any failing teeth that remain in the dental arch. This procedure may be performed using a local or general anesthetic, as per your treatment plan.
Following the procedure, you will have to take time to heal properly before the next steps. Follow your dentist's instructions to facilitate healing. Once the implants are properly healed, the bridge can be installed, completing the treatment and renewing your smile.
Your new teeth require no special care beyond healthy oral hygiene habits. With proper care, your new teeth can last for years to come. Of course, regular visits to our Mansfield dentist office are crucial for keeping your new smile in tip-top shape.
All-on-Four Implants can provide a huge boost to our patients quality of life. Your new implants may restore some of the youthful structure to your face and forestall future bone loss. You'll be amazed at the increase in energy and confidences you'll enjoy with your new smile. Call Mansfield Dental Center today to schedule your consultation.
