Full Arch Dental Rehabilitation Q&A
What is full arch dental rehabilitation?
Full arch dental rehabilitation, a common tooth restoration system also known as All-on-4® implants, is an innovative way to restore your missing teeth. It includes four dental implants, and those implants hold a denture arch in place permanently.
Your dentist places two of the All-on-4 dental implants at a 45-degree angle in the back of your mouth. The other two dental implants are vertical and go in the front of your arch. With this balance of implants, most patients have enough support to hold the tooth replacement arch securely.
The office of Rodney K. Park, DDS, works with the top local dental lab to create the custom tooth restorations used in All-on-4 systems. This gives you high-quality, fully functional tooth replacements that also look amazing.
What are the advantages of full arch dental rehabilitation?
There are a number of benefits to replacing your teeth with full arch dental rehabilitation, or All-on-4, including:
With dentures and full mouth dental implants, the process takes a lot of time, often many months. But, with full arch dental rehabilitation, you can get a brand new smile in a day. Nobel Biocare®, the maker of the All-on-4 system, designed the implants for immediate loading, eliminating a healing period without teeth.
No bone grafts
Full arch dental rehabilitation doesn't require bone grafts like traditional dental implants often do. In the front jaw, you don't need bone grafting because there's generally less bone resorption in that area. In the back jaw, the 45-degree implant tilt uses all the available bone in your jaw effectively without requiring additions through grafting.
Full arch dental rehabilitation is far more durable than traditional dentures. With regular dentures, you need relining (recovering the denture base) or rebasing (replacing the denture base) every few years. But, with All-on-4, your replacement teeth can last 15-20 years or longer.
You have to remove and clean regular dentures every day. With full arch dental rehabilitation, your teeth stay where they belong, in your mouth. You simply brush and floss every day, just like with natural teeth.
Full arch dental rehabilitation is less expensive than replacing all your teeth with dental implants. Though less costly, the results look and function just the same.
The Rodney K. Park, DDS, team tells you more about how all these advantages can work for you.
What if All-on-4 implants won’t work for me?
If you don’t have enough supporting bone in your jaw, All-on-4 might not be ideal for you. But, good news: Rodney K. Park, DDS, also offers All-on-5 and All-on-6 systems.
All-on-5 and All-on-6 work in a similar way to All-on-4, but they include one or two additional implants to give you the extra stability you need.
