Thanks to the aggressive marketing by companies such as Clear Choice™ and the information easily available over the internet, patients from Sedona and the Cottonwood, AZ area are more aware than ever of the benefits of All-on-4® bridges. Teeth in a Day™ is also a trademark name and is give to a denture permanently attached to a jaw by four or more implants. Six to seven years ago, patients were not aware that this treatment option even existed.
Before the All-on-4® dental implant procedure, the most common treatment for those with few or no teeth was a denture. Full dentures have problems including the inability to taste and chew food, slurred speech and denture sores. Dentures also speed up the deterioration of the supporting bone, making the wearer look older than they may actually be.
The term “all-on-4” refers to “all” of the teeth in an arch being supported “on four” dental implants for the total replacement of missing or badly damaged upper and/or lower teeth. Implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare was one of the first to research the use of angulated implants and immediately “load” a full set of teeth.
The procedure is best for patients who have lost most of their teeth, or have severly failing teeth that need to be removed and replaced.
