ALL ON FOUR IMPLANTS IN PHOENIX
Implants are a type of prosthetic tooth that replaces a missing or damaged tooth. An implant allows the gum, surrounding teeth, and jawbone to remain stimulated as if a natural tooth still existed in its place. This is a much healthier option for the mouth in general which is why implants can be such a popular option. Sometimes, if an entire row of teeth need to be replaced, as opposed to one or two, all-on-four implants are used.

WHAT ARE ALL ON FOUR IMPLANTS
For each tooth that’s being replaced by an implant, a post is drilled into the jawbone and then a false tooth placed on the top of it. Of course, these aren’t able to be removed and they act just like your natural teeth and can be treated in much the same way. However, if an entire row of teeth need to be replaced, then an all-on-four implant is used instead. This means that only four posts are drilled into the jawbone and then the entire row of teeth is attached, as one unit, to these four posts. This alleviates having to drill a post into the jawbone for each tooth which can be costlier than anything. However, this also means the teeth will fit together better and more naturally. If each tooth had to be adjusted one at a time, it the process would be a lengthy one.
CONSULTING YOUR DENTIST FOR ALL ON FOUR IMPLANTS
Overall, implants are a great choice when it comes to replacing teeth and are often the preferred choice above dentures. Not everyone is suited for implants so, it’s always best to talk to your dental professional before getting your heart set on any one option. There may be other issues standing in the way of implants however, your dentist will help you find the best option for you and your needs.
