Your dentist in Cocoa Beach, Dr. Gary C. Nawrocki, has a wonderful solution in All-on-4 dental implants, also known as Teeth In a Day. This method supports a complete denture on as few as four dental implants. Keep reading to learn more about how you can get your smile back with All-on-4 at Nawrocki Dental!
All-on-4 is a tooth replacement option for people who have lost all of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw. By angling from four to six dental implants in front of and along the side of the jawbone, All-on-4 draws maximum support from your bone structure.
All-on-4 allows people to enjoy all the benefits of dental implants without having to have an individual implant placed for each missing tooth. The method can be used to secure an existing denture, or to replace the teeth right after they are extracted. All-on-4 is also called Teeth In a Day, because the dental implants can be restored within 24 hours after placement.
Without a full set of teeth, your jawbone does not have the stimulation it needs to thrive. The tooth’s roots encourage blood flow and the distribution of nutrients to the area -- and unless they are replaced, too, the jawbone gradually shrinks as a result of the missing teeth.
Traditional dentures only give you back the visible portion of the teeth. Over time, the jaw loses its volume -- but the denture stays the same size. People who have traditional dentures must have them refitted or relined every five to seven years.
All-on-4 dental implants allow patients to enjoy stable, secure teeth, without the hassle of a loose or ill-fitting denture. By replacing some of the tooth’s roots, the jawbone is stabilized for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The benefits of All-on-4 compared to traditional dentures include…
If you are dealing with a loose or ill-fitting denture, or if you are on the brink of losing all of your teeth, chances are good that All-on-4 dental implants can save your smile. Because All-on-4 draws maximum support from the jawbone, it can eliminate the need for preliminary procedures that would be necessary for traditional implants -- meaning people who may not have been eligible for dental implants in Cocoa Beach in the past can enjoy all of their benefits with All-on-4.
