Every tooth in your mouth plays a vital role. Missing one or more teeth can have a great impact on your appearance, self-esteem, and overall oral health. This is why it is important to replace missing teeth using the right technique as soon as possible.
At Designer Smiles, we offer a range of dental treatments to replace missing teeth. One of the most effective and advanced techniques for treating these problems is our all-on-8 dental implants.
All-on-8 involves placement of 8 dental implants in each dental arch to serve as anchors to hold artificial teeth and function as a non-removable dental bridge. Dentures are usually made of acrylic or zirconia and are sturdy enough to last lifelong.
Dental implants are one of the safest and effective ways of replacing missing teeth as they ensure a bite strength level like that of natural teeth.
All-on-8 procedure involves the placement of the dental implants into the jawbone and attaching provisional prosthesis immediately after. After the implants have healed, a dental bridge can be attached to them. The procedure may take somewhere around 2 to 4 hours.
The initial few months after the procedure, you can expect your mouth to heal and the bone and gums to change their shape to adjust to the fixture.
All-on-8 is the ideal dental implant treatment for patients having a full arch of missing teeth. Also, patients who have to get their damaged teeth removed and need replacement can undergo this dental treatment. All-on-8 are a comfortable, sturdy, and long-term alternative to traditional dentures.
All-on-8 is one of the most successful techniques to replace missing teeth. It offers multiple benefits to the patients including:
Dental implants require care and maintenance just like your natural teeth. Once you have successfully got your implants placed, you need to practise good oral hygiene. Brush and floss regularly, and schedule dental check-ups for professional cleaning.
