Have you lost or are you about to lose all your teeth? Are you wondering how to replace them? Do you want a solution that will mimic your natural teeth as closely as possible? There is one, and it’s one that is making increasing numbers of people happy with life after total tooth loss. The solution is dental implants, using a particular process known as full arch rehabilitation.
If you are looking for an experienced and trustworthy dentist to fit you with All-On-4 dental implants then Aura Dental in North West London is a practice well worth checking out.
The All-On-4 dental implant procedure uses as little invasive surgery as possible to provide full arch rehabilitation – a full set of teeth for both upper and lower jaws. This technique gets great reviews from over 90% of patients who opt for it.
Dental implants replace the root of the missing teeth. They are inserted into the jaw during a surgical procedure usually performed under local anaesthetic, because there are far fewer nerve endings in the jawbone than in a tooth. The posts then have internal screws, called abutments, inserted into them. The dentist can then permanently attach a full denture, or a removable one if you wish to take it out to clean it.
Although the jawbone needs time to heal and bond with the implants, depending on your case, it might be possible to leave after implant insertion with a temporary restoration in place.
All-On-4 provides you with same-day dental implants. It works by inserting only four dental implants into the jaw. Two implants hold the biting teeth in place at the front, and two at the sides securely anchor the chewing teeth. The clever bit is that the dental implants on the sides are inserted at angles of up to 45°. On both jaws, the dental implants are tilted so that the protrusion from the implant is at the back of the jaw but the internal post and abutment screw tilt in towards the front of the jaw. This provides much more stability for the multi-directional chewing and grinding that full dentures must cope with.
