If you have suffered extensive tooth loss, you have probably thought about getting dental implants in Fort Worth. But it is understandable if you hesitate due to concerns about the long treatment timeline or the complex treatment process. All-on-4 might be your ideal solution. This dental implant treatment is faster than traditional methods. In fact, you might be able to get your remaining teeth extracted, have your implants placed in your jaw, and receive a new set of teeth — all in a single appointment!
As the name of the treatment implies, All-on-4 in Fort Worth uses as few as four dental implants to support an entire arch of lost teeth. Two of the implants are placed at an angle toward the back of the jaw, and two are placed in the front of the jaw, in locations where the bone is naturally strong and thick. Immediately after the implants are inserted, a provisional (temporary) denture gets attached to them. A few months after the initial surgery, the provisional denture gets replaced with a more durable permanent one.
