Dental implants are considered one of the best treatments for missing teeth. This is because they are fixed, permanent, look great and function just like natural teeth. An implant is essentially a post made of titanium. It can effectively act as a root for an artificial tooth once it is placed inside the jawbone. The special thing about a titanium dental implant is that it slowly integrates with your jawbone to become a part of the dental structure in your mouth. This process is known as osseointegration. Once the implant becomes a part of your oral structure, artificial teeth can be attached to it. To get dental implants, it is important for a person to have enough jawbone density at the implant site. In case the jawbone is not dense enough, a bone grafting procedure may need to be performed.
The term “All on 4” refers to the fact that a full set of teeth in a dental arch can be replaced using just four strategically placed dental implants. It is a contemporary technique where the back implants are tilted at an angle of forty-five degrees to provide the required support for total rehabilitation. The angular placement of the back implants helps overcome bone deficiencies that often occur in the back of the jaws. This method can avoid the need for bone grafts while replacing the teeth using fewer implants.
