Dental implants are the second best treatment to keeping your natural teeth; the first would be, of course, keeping your original teeth. When having dental implant surgery, you are restoring a tooth (or teeth) that has been lost or damaged beyond repair, as the result of an injury; and this new tooth will look, act, and feel just like the tooth that is being replaced.
Dental implants are built to last—which makes the All-on-4- dental implant treatment plan cost-effective and a natural way to keep you smiling.
This treatment plan is a reasonably priced option for dental implants with results that are superbly appealing. A traditional bridge implant can last anywhere from five to seven years, and that requires frequent maintenance care, sometimes even needing replacement years later. When you receive the all-on-4-dental implants, they are implanted directly into your jaw line, and therefore, behave the same way your natural tooth once did. It may cost a bit more for the initial implantation, however, over the long haul will end up saving you money because you won’t need to spend time and money on continually maintaining or eventually replacing the dental work.
With over twenty-five years of research in the dental implant industry, Laser-Lok technologies has built an appropriateness within the dental implant surgical business; and has what it takes to ensure the most advantageous results and performance.
Research provided by the Laser-Lok laboratories provides a biological response system which will provide the epithelial down growth of any and all attached tissues. This system provides a biological seal around the tooth/teeth, which will guard and preserve the new tooth as well as the area in which the implant has been restored within the mouth.
The idea behind the all-in-4- dental implant surgery is that through the use of this new surgery the tooth or teeth are surgically replaced by a surgical procedure in which the root of the missing tooth/teeth is replaced with metal screw like posts that hold in the artificial teeth, which act much the same way the original teeth did. This new surgery offers a new alternative to what previous bridgework and dentures can do; without the additional issues of faulty bridgework or dentures that constantly need replacement and adjusting and are very high maintenance.
How do you know if dental implants are the choice for you?
- If you have one or more missing teeth
- Your jawbone has reached its full growth
- You must have an efficient amount of bone available in order to for the bone grafts to securely attach
- You must have healthy oral tissues
- No health conditions that prevent effective healing of bones
- You can't or won't wear dentures
- If you are interested in improving your speech abilities
- Have several months available in which to commit to the entire process of getting dental implants.
As with any other surgical procedure, there are always risks to infection or other possible health hazards. Some of the health risks involved with getting dental implants can be as follows:
- Infections at or near the site of the implant
- The teeth or blood vessels at or near the site can become bruised or otherwise impaired
- There can be some damage to the nerves in the mouth area; such as a pain, numbing or tingling sensations of the natural teeth, gums, lips or chin area.
- Even issues with the sinuses can result from the dental implants; particularly if the implants were done near the sinus cavities or in the upper jaw area.
If after having dental implant surgery and you have any facial, gum swelling or bruising that doesn’t go away after a sufficient amount of time; it would be a good idea to visit your dental care professional in order to follow up and see if your implants are healing correctly. Otherwise, as long as you follow your dentist orders completely, you should have no issues and your dental implants will be one of the best investments you can make towards your health and future.
