Benefits of All-on-Four (A4) dental implants for replacing a full arch of teeth
Removable dentures have been the mainstay in treatment for many decades for patients who have lost all of their teeth in an arch. While these are effective at restoring some of the functionality of your natural teeth, removable dentures have some disadvantages, such as slipping, sore spots, and food restrictions. At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, we are proud to offer a modern alternative to removable dentures for patients near Daly City: the All-on-Four (A4) Complete Implant Solution. This revolutionary treatment option provides patients with a full arch of new teeth using only four dental implants. It offers many benefits over traditional dentures – and even better, you can walk out with your functional new smile in just one day!
The A4 Complete Implant Solution
Dental implants have been used for several decades to replace missing teeth. Patients nowadays can reap the benefits of the many advances in materials and technologies that have improved our ability to restore a full arch of teeth. Rather than using up to eight to twelve implants as was previously required, we can place just four to six strategically located implants in the arch where they stabilize a full denture – all with shorter healing times and a reduced need for bone grafting.
Benefits of the A4 system
The A4 Complete Implant Solution was specifically created to solve the functional, aesthetic, and oral health problems faced by people who have lost a full arch of teeth. While traditional dental implants offer excellent functionality, it is prohibitively expensive for most people to have single implants placed for a full arch of teeth. On the other hand, dentures are an affordable option for replacing many teeth. Still, patients with removable dentures often struggle with food restrictions, their dentures slipping and falling out, and the unhealthy jawbone deterioration that naturally occurs after teeth have been lost. The A4 system solves all of these issues:
- Function: Our custom-designed A4 implant dentures look and feel like natural teeth, so no one will need to know that you have had dental work done, and you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without restriction or worry.
- Comfort: While many people think that getting dental implants placed is very painful, modern techniques and anesthetics have made it possible to complete the procedure with just a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable and pain-free.
- Convenience: Traditional implants can take many months before they are fully functional and restored with your new replacement teeth. With the A4 Complete Implant System, you will walk out with functional teeth on the same day your implants are placed! We can do this by providing you with a temporary denture that you use while your implants heal. Once the implants and your tissues have healed, we will then place a permanent denture.
- Oral health: The four dental implants used in the A4 system provide sufficient stimulation to your jawbone to keep it healthy and prevent bone loss over time.
