Bexley Dental Educates Community On Full Mouth Dental Implants
Bexley, NSW based Bexley Dental is taking measures to inform their community about full mouth implants and the various advantages they offer dental patients. The practice encourages patients to get in touch if they wish to schedule a free consultation or inquire further on the subject.
Full mouth implants are one of the best alternatives for those struggling with damaged or missing teeth. They utilise an advanced technique that offers a great rate of success while being minimally invasive, two rare traits that contribute to its popularity as one of the best alternatives to dentures. With a highly trained and experienced dentist at the helm, dental implants of this nature produce beautiful results, giving patients back their smiles and enabling them to smile again with confidence. Despite offering many benefits at little risk, however, the practice states that most people choose other options due to their lack of familiarity with this alternative.
In the interest of raising awareness of full mouth dental implants, the team at Bexley Dental published an article (published on their official website) where they explain these dental implants in detail. Their article is titled ‘A Complete Guide To Full Mouth Dental Implants,’ and it covers everything from what these implants are to how long they last, their advantages, disadvantages, cost and much more.
A full mouth implant (also known as ‘All on 4’) is an advanced dental implant technique. Dental implants are small titanium screws that fit inside the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. In the case of a single tooth, a crown would be attached to the implant to produce an incredibly realistic and functional prosthetic tooth. In the case of full mouth implants, the whole set of upper or lower teeth is replaced, but instead of needing an implant for each tooth, they are supported by only four dental implants — hence the name All on 4.
This technique offers its own unique benefits, as most conventional dental implants procedures require eight or more implants to replace a full arch in addition to requiring bone grafting and sinus augmentation to strengthen the jawbone. Conversely, with All on 4, only two implants are needed at the back of the mouth, cleverly angled at 45 degrees to avoid bone-deficient areas while retaining strength. This eliminates the need for bone grafting, offering more flexibility to design and fit the optimum replacement teeth. Healing and rehabilitation times are also minimized due to this being a much less invasive procedure. It is also much faster than any other alternative, and patients can receive their new, fixed teeth in less than 24 hours after surgery.
Full mouth implants can be a consideration for anyone who is struggling with failing, damaged or missing teeth. The clinic explains that while anyone can experience the benefits of this procedure, some individuals can take advantage of it to an even greater degree. For instance, full mouth dental implants are most recommended for those who do not have a fully operational set of teeth, those who have tried wearing dentures but cannot get used to the discomfort that it brings and those who are unable to have conventional implants due to reduced bone density (resulting from tooth loss or gum disease).
Bexley Dental explains that there are certain situations where one may want to give some more thought to whether or not they should choose dental implants. More specifically, certain medical conditions and lifestyle choices can complicate the procedure and cause certain risks, diminishing the benefits and causing other disadvantages even after the surgery. Patients who suffer from high blood pressure as well as those with periodontal diseases, lack of jaw bone, osteoporosis or uncontrolled diabetes, for example, should consult with their physician and give this decision the serious thought that it merits.
When it comes to the cost of full mouth dental implants, the clinic explains that this specific procedure can go anywhere from $18,000 up to $50,000, depending on the scope and type of treatment. Bexley Dental offers various payment plans and finance options to help make the process more affordable for their patients.
