Can you believe it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2016? We think it’s a good time to talk about tooth replacement. If you are dealing with an ill-fitting denture or are on the brink of total tooth loss, consider All-on-4 dental implants before the the end of the year. And if you have unused money in your Health Savings account, use it to replace your missing teeth as it may expire on December 31, 2016.
All-on-4 dental implants restore your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence — all more efficiently than would be possible with traditional dental implants. Dr. Andrew, our expert in implant dentistry, provides All-on-4 for patients who are missing a full row of teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
All-on-4: How It Works
Many adults are missing one or more teeth, and more than 35 million people are missing all teeth in the upper or lower jaw. For these “fully edentulous” patients who have lost a complete arch, All-on-4 provides an effective solution.
Dental implants are made of titanium, a material that fuses with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. Once the implant is surgically placed beneath the gums, it gradually becomes one with your mouth, providing unsurpassed stability for the prosthetic tooth that is attached on top.
Traditionally, one dental implant is placed for each missing tooth — a costly, invasive option for complete tooth replacement. Just like the name suggests, All-on-4 dental implants support a full row of prosthetic teeth on just four dental implants. It works using the careful, precise placement of the dental implants — placed at an angle, they are able to gain maximum strength from the jawbone.
The benefits of All-on-4 are many, and include:
- Restored ability to eat and speak with confidence.
- Eat the foods you couldn’t with dentures.
- Live without the stress and discomfort of an ill-fitting denture.
- No need for denture adhesives.
- Fewer dental implants means a more affordable replacement.
- Dental implants can be expected to last a lifetime with proper care.
All-on-4 at The Drs. Boyd
Dental implants are without a doubt the most effective method of replacing teeth today. Continuing in the long tradition of Boyd family of dentists, Dr. Andrew Boyd brings a wealth of knowledge about the latest in implant restorations to the practice.
Dr. Andrew gained significant experience using the All-on-4 dental implant concept during his three-year prosthodontic residency at the V.A. Hospital in Manhattan. During this time, he was able to provide veterans who would have needed dentures with complete fixed implant prostheses instead. He also became proficient in digital treatment planning and guided implant surgery. With these methods, he crafted a multidisciplinary approach to restore both simple and complex cases. Dr. Andrew is diligent about staying up-to-date in the implant dentistry field and currently teaches prosthodontics at New York University College of Dentistry.
