Is All-on-Four the Right Dental Restoration for You?

Is All-on-Four the Right Dental Restoration for You?

Missing teeth can compromise your confidence and your oral health. Traditional dental implants are a popular and reliable option for restoration, but they also require multiple appointments and don’t do anything about the gum tissue surrounding the missing teeth. That is where All-on-Four dental implant solutions enter the picture. The office of John R. Carson, DDS is one of the only places in Tucson where you can receive this unique treatment. Get the facts here. 

How are All-on-Four dental implants different from traditional dental implants?

All-on-Four implants include traditional dental implants, but they go further. Consisting of a so-called “hybrid dental bridge,” the All-on-Four system has dental implants and prosthetic gum tissue. 

What happens when I decide to get All-on-Four dental implants?

You will start out with a consultation appointment to determine if you are a good candidate and to make your treatment plan. Sometimes, more than one consultation is needed to ensure your implant system is a good match for you aesthetically. The All-on-Four implants will be placed during a surgical procedure. You will need to return for follow-up visits to make sure you’re healing appropriately and that things are going as expected. . 

Who is a good candidate for All-on-Four implants?

If you have multiple missing teeth or unhealthy teeth that are likely to be replaced, All-on-Four dental implants could be the solution for you. They are also a good alternative for people who have dentures or bridges but are tired of removable appliances. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate is to make an appointment with your dentist for a consultation.
