Are you looking for a tooth replacement solution that offers more than traditional dentures? Want to avoid potential slippage and discomfort that can often come with other prosthetics? At Downtown Family Dental of Leesburg, we are pleased to offer our patients an alternative solution! With All-on-4 in Leesburg, VA, you can enjoy greater stability and functionality with the help of four strategically placed dental implants. Instead of replacing each individual missing tooth, All-on-4 can make the process faster and easier. It may even be possible for you to receive your new teeth the very same day! Contact us to learn more about All-on-4 and find out if you are a qualified candidate.
To receive All-on-4 dental implants, you will first have four implants surgically placed into the densest areas of your jawbone. This will ensure your implants remain stable and offer maximum support to your customized denture. The two posterior implants (these sit toward the back of the mouth) will be angled at 45 degrees. The reason for this is to reduce the need for a bone graft that would add several months of healing time to your treatment plan. Because your implants mimic natural tooth roots, they will continue to stimulate your jawbone, which is beneficial to improving your oral health and minimizing the potential for facial collapse over time.
Metal abutments will then be attached before you receive your finalized denture that will be secured into place, allowing you to eat and speak with greater ease.
Individuals who are missing all their teeth along one or both arches are considered good candidates for All-on-4. Even if you’ve been turned down for regular dental implants because of a lack of bone density, you may be eligible for All-on-4 simply because of the way they are angled along the jawbone. It is important, however, that you be committed to maintaining a good oral hygiene regime and avoid any bad habits that might hinder the success of your implant placement (i.e., smoking, poor oral hygiene, gum disease).
You will find that by choosing All-on-4 dental implants to replace your missing teeth, you will enjoy many outstanding benefits that no other traditional tooth replacement can provide, such as:
