The all-on-4 dental implant is designed to address multiple tooth loss concerns. This treatment is permanent, beautiful, and functional. But who is a candidate and what will disqualify patients from receiving this life changing procedure?
What disqualifies patients from having dental implants?
Most people are candidates and will qualify for the all on 4 treatment. In order to determine if the all-on-4 implants will work, we will need to schedule a patient visit in our Salt Lake dental office. We want to understand your dental history and determine if your jaw is strong enough to support the implants. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants is one of the best ways to maintain proper oral health. Missing teeth can increase problems with bone degeneration and additional tooth loss. Gum recession is another concern for patients dealing with missing teeth.
During your consultation, we will review a variety of X-rays to determine if you do have adequate bone density. If the jaw bone is weak, we will discuss options to strengthen the jaw bone with bone grafts before we can proceed with the dental implant. Successful candidate for all-on-4 dental implants need to have generally good health and a healthy immune system. Certain health conditions, like diabetes, smoking habits may need additional treatments to proceed with the oral surgery treatment. At Dream Dental Implant Center, we are concerned about your overall health. Certain lifestyles and activities can decrease the likelihood of a successful implant. We recommend scheduling a consultation to determine if dental implants are the best treatment for your oral health needs.
All-on-4 Dental Implant Placement
Most dental implants are made from titanium. The titanium will be inserted into the jaw bone where it bonds with the bone, creating a strong structure. Titanium fuses to the bone, like the way a traditional root of the tooth will bond with the bone. The implants are placed and a natural-looking prosthetic will be attached to an abutment on the implant rod.
