Dental implants began as a revolutionary way to replace missing teeth without the drawbacks that are so closely associated with traditional fixed bridges and partial removable dentures. As a result, implants were considered more suitable for replacing one Bergen tooth loss or maybe several. But to replace all would be a time-consuming, costly, and logistically difficult process, thereby making old-fashioned complete dentures the only option. Thanks to the continued technological advancement related to implants, though, we at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery can now offer you dentures anchored by implants that give you the best benefits of both.
The all-on-4 implant system addresses Bergen tooth loss without any messy adhesive as is standard with traditional dentures. It used to be that dentures were not completely reliable, and would be subject to sliding when you chew and speak, leaving you less than fully confident in them. Still, they were the only available. Well, not anymore. All-on-4 implants start with our local oral surgeon placing four support posts in you jaw that will be used to anchor the entire set of dentures. Four are much easier to place than over a dozen, obviously. And if that isn’t enough to excite you, all-on-4 can sometimes be completed, post and dentures in just a single day’s session. It can be done on either the upper or lower jaw. You will be able to speak, laugh, and eat without any self-consciousness. All-on-4 implants turn what was a removable prosthetic and turns it into a fixed one. You won’t have to take your denture out. Just brush them as you would your natural teeth. Nothing could be easier when it comes to treating Bergen tooth loss.
It’s simple to get started. Contact us today and arrange an appointment to come in and have an examination and consultation. You’ll find out if all-on-4 is right for you.
