If you have suffered extensive tooth loss, you might be considering dental implants in Randolph, NJ to rebuild your lost smile. You have much to look forward to! Dental implants provide a multitude of advantages. However, not all dental implant procedures are the same. Many patients have been greatly satisfied with an All-on treatment, which uses just a few dental implants to support an entire arch of lost teeth. When the implant restoration is made out of special Prettau Zirconia, the benefits are even greater.
Your All-on Dental Implant Options
The All-on-4 dental implant treatment uses as few as four dental implants to support prosthetic teeth. As their name implies, All-on-5 or All-on-6 treatments use more dental implants. All of the All-on treatments deliver some similar benefits. For example, they are minimally invasive and can help patients avoid the need for a bone graft. Plus, patients receive a temporary prosthetic on the same day they receive their dental implants. A permanent implant-supported restoration (denture) gets placed after the jawbone has had a chance to recover from the surgery, which may take a few months.
That is where the similarities between the All-on treatments end. All-on 5/6 options tend to produce better long-term results than All-on-4. More implants lead to greater stability and more even force distribution across the mouth. Therefore, they allow patients to experience the most reliable, most natural-feeling results possible. Plus, because dental implants replace tooth roots and help to keep the jawbone strong, a greater number of implants does more to promote long-term bone health.
If you visit Dr. Glen Goldstein for your procedure, you may be able to undergo the revolutionary Teeth Tomorrow treatment, which is a unique type of All-on-5/6 procedure. The remaining teeth get extracted, the implants are placed, and you will receive a temporary set of teeth all on the same day. Later, you can experience the beauty and function of special Prettau Zirconia implant-supported dentures in Randolph, NJ.
Prettau Zirconia vs. Traditional Restoration Materials
A traditional implant-supported denture, such as the type that typically accompanies All-on-4 implants, may be made out of porcelain or acrylic. While these prosthetics can look appealing and provide solid function, Prettau Zirconia is a superior option for most patients.
Prettau Zirconia is a special type of zirconia, which is designed to be more durable than traditional restoration materials. A Prettau implant-supported denture is milled out of a single block of high-grade zirconia, and it is custom-designed to fit in with a patient’s unique mouth. The Teeth Tomorrow method uses this type of restoration and is the only tooth replacement solution that is backed by a 99.5 percent success rate, as noted in a 5-year, peer-reviewed study.
