Losing teeth is a common problem affecting people of all ages. Tooth loss may occur due to various reasons including cavities, gum disease, poor oral hygiene, ageing, or even an accidental fall.
Most people believe that removable dentures are the only treatment option available for replacing missing teeth. However, this isn’t true. At Designer Smiles, we offer advanced and efficient treatments like All-on-5 dental implants to help you regain your beautiful smile. This treatment is ideal for those who want to replace their missing teeth with something that is permanent and looks more natural and isn’t uncomfortable as dentures.
All-on-5 dental implants are similar to All-on-4’s. However, they are studier since they use 5 implants to securely place all the teeth in your mouth. All-on-5 lets you have a complete set of teeth in your mouth without undergoing multiple surgeries and replacements. They eliminate the need for extensive surgeries or bone grafting, allowing you to attain high-quality full teeth restoration. This procedure is most effective for restoring the upper jaw since long and strong implants can be easily secured at the back of the jaw.
Five titanium implants are fixed in the jaw in a manner that the bone covers and secures them into place. The implants fixed in the jaw’s back are angulated, so they can gain maximum benefit from the existing bone structure. After the implants are secured, the abutments are attached to allow fastening and adjustment of the replacement teeth. Since the entire procedure just requires securing 5 implants, the treatment consumes less surgical time in comparison to other missing teeth replacement treatments. The implants developed for all-on-5 treatment allow immediate fixing of replacement teeth, ensuring you don’t leave our dental clinic without a full set of teeth.
When you approach Designer Smiles for the all-on-5 treatment, you can first expect a consultation and diagnostic session with our dental implant expert, Dr Sarkis Nalbandian. Since every patient’s case is different, our doctor will carefully evaluate your case to determine the right treatment path for you. With the help of x-rays, panoramic scans and impressions, a decision will be made whether you require extractions or not. Our doctor will discuss all the details with you and schedule you for the next appointment. In the next session, you can expect to have your new replacement teeth fitted and adjusted perfectly.
