Being edentulous (completely toothless), or soon-to-be edentulous, is no laughing matter. It has actually become more of a communal handicap for many people around the world. Moreover, losing all of your teeth can seriously influence your daily life. Not only does it affect your overall appearance and self-esteem, but it also comes along with adverse immediate and long-term risks to your oral and general health such as jawbone shrinkage (bone resorption), gums diseases, even indigestion due to limited chewing abilities.
The typical option for edentulous upper and/or lower jaws is either by wearing traditional dentures or conventional dental implants. Wearing dentures can be uncomfortable or awkward, and usually contributes to further bone loss, while opting for conventional Teeth Implants requires numerous visits to your dentist, thus making the treatment time-consuming. This led to the emergence of the All-on-4™ treatment concept – a new advancement in the world of implant dentistry innovation.
At Sea Smile Dental Clinic, we make it a point to embrace such new advancements in technology, thus we are very proud to offer the most innovative and reliable solution for your edentulous or soon-to-be edentulous jaws – the All-on-4™ Treatment Concept. This treatment provides you with functional teeth on the same day as the implant surgery is performed, regardless of your bone quantity/quality availability.
There may be little or actually no bone grafting procedures required prior to the treatment, depending on your condition. And since this state-of-the-art treatment concept involves the placement of Teeth implants Thalland on your edentulous jaws, further loss of bone is prevented because the lost tooth roots are replaced as well.
The All-on-4™ Concept also allows you a fully functional mouth-and-jaw (stomatognathic) system; this includes the nerves, muscles, and the jaw joints as well. You can go back to your normal chewing, speaking, and smiling abilities with full confidence, immediately and smiling with joy after you leave our clinic.
The All-on-4™ procedures can be performed in two ways:
FLAP PROCEDURE: This is the conventional way of performing the All-on-4™ procedures. This involves the use of traditional planning in conjunction with a standardized All-on-4™ guide which results in a predictable and optimal positioning of the dental implants.
FLAPLESS PROCEDURES: With NobelGuide™ System, a flapless procedure is made possible with the use of a computer-based Diagnostic and Treatment Planning Software to produce a customized Surgical Guide to be able to drill and position the teeth implants with precision.
NobelGuide™ provides maximum comfort as the surgical procedure is minimally invasive. There is considerably reduced pain and swelling as compared to the conventional procedure. The system also decreases chair-time and requires minimal visits to the clinic so you can immediately return to your normal everyday life.
More importantly, with the combination of NobelGuide™ and the Immediate Function™ technology, the final prosthesis of your choice (e.g. Procera® Crowns Alumina, Procera® Crowns Zirconia, etc.) is readily available right after the surgery, allowing you to leave our clinic with your brand new smile.
