Sciota and East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
Many patients with significant or total tooth loss assume that they will have to resort to wearing dentures for life. If this is you, it’s possible that you’ve even been told that you aren’t a candidate for dental implants. However, the All-on-4 implant system makes it possible for many adults to restore their chewing ability, smile, and self-confidence. Chestnuthill Dental offers this revolutionary implant system that utilizes four implants placed in the jawbone to support a single unit of replacement teeth. The results are completely natural and will function as well as your natural teeth once did.
Why choose All-on-4?
This implant system uses state-of-the-art technology and the artistic abilities of a skilled cosmetic dentist to create the most astounding results for replacing all of the missing teeth on a dental arch. Traditional dentures have long since been relied upon as a valuable option for replacing missing teeth. However, some patients dislike how dentures feel while wearing them or experience fitting issues that cause the dentures to rub on their gums. Instead, All-on-4 uses a single-unit bridge-like set of teeth that attaches to four implants in each dental arch. This procedure is referred to as teeth-in-a-day because you can get a whole new set of teeth in a day! No need to wait weeks or months. And no need to wait on a lab to make your restoration.
How does the All-on-4 system work?
Although the unit is made as one piece, it will look like individual teeth. The dentist will gather impressions and digital scans of your mouth at the first appointment. Then, before you return for your treatment, the lab makes your replacement teeth and returns them to us.
At your next visit, the dentist will place your implants. If you have an entire arch of missing teeth, our Sciota implant dentists can place four implants in your frontal jawbone. That’s the part of your jawbone that is near the front of your mouth instead of in the back where your jaw teeth are located. This is because the front jawbone is denser and can hold the implants. The last step is permanently attaching the bridge unit to your implants. This is why the procedure is called teeth-in-a-day because you can get new teeth in a single day!
Will I have enough jawbone to hold the implants?
In some cases, patients with long-term tooth loss lose a significant amount of jawbone, especially where their molars or jaw teeth once resided. This is a natural process that occurs with tooth loss because the tooth’s root is no longer stimulating the jawbone. However, the front portion of the jawbone directly under the nose remains fairly stable and is where the implants are placed for this procedure.
