There Are Only Four Teeth In My Mouth
Mr. Shan is almost 70 years old and has lost all his teeth 8 years ago. He has been wearing mobile dentures ever since. Recently, he always suffered from toothache and recurrent attacks of oral ulcers during his meal. He went to the Stomatological Hospital and found that his full denture was basically flattened and deformed, his mouth was inflamed, and his alveolar bone was atrophy. At the doctor’s suggestion, he took off the movable dentures and replaced them with implants. The doctor considered that his alveolar bone mass was insufficient, and it would take 3 to 6 months or even longer for traditional implants, so he used All-on-4 implant restoration technology.
Clinically, there are many patients with complete teeth loss who wear a removable denture for more than 10 years or even 20 years without replacement, resulting in various oral diseases. The service life of movable dentures is about 3 to 5 years. Even if the dentures are well maintained and not deformed at all, it does not mean that they can be used all the time, because the environment of the oral cavity is also changing. As the alveolar bone is gradually absorbed, the adhesion between the denture and the oral mucosa will decrease, making the chewing effect worse and even slipping.
Now, many patients with complete teeth loss choose dental implants. They don’t have to be missing one by one for full-mouth implantation, especially for patients with insufficient alveolar bone mass. In fact, they can choose All-on-4 implant restoration technology, just implant 4 implants each Can reconstruct full teeth. Implants in this way are inclined at 30~45° to increase the contact surface between bone and implant, avoiding important anatomical structures such as maxillary sinus and inferior alveolar neural tube, and some alveolar bones can be used without sufficient bone Do bone grafting.
The effect of this restoration method is comparable to that of real teeth. It reduces the implant placement, avoids a lot of bone grafting, and reduces the trauma and risk of implant surgery. More importantly, patients can wear temporary teeth after implantation. The crown restores the chewing function, avoiding the toothless waiting time of 3-6 months. For people with severe periodontal disease and who can not keep their teeth loose, All-on-4 can also achieve one-day repair. But on the other hand, All-on-4 dental implant technology has extremely high technical requirements for doctors and relies on high-precision oral equipment for testing. “If the doctor implants too shallow, it will easily lead to loose teeth after implantation; if the doctor If it is planted too deep, it may hurt nerves.”

Natural teeth are still the best. Don’t care about natural teeth because of the widespread dental implant technology. Although the “All-on-4” technology is close to perfect, it is only suitable for patients with full teeth and fewer teeth. Don’t remove any teeth with more than 5 to 6 teeth. It is best to take the method of bone grafting, normal use and pay attention to cleaning and maintenance, and return to the clinic once every six months. The general 15-year survival rate of implants is about 70%, while the 10-year survival rate of “All-on-4” implants is as high as 95%. If you are using implants of world-famous brands, I believe that after 20 or 30 years, you don’t have to worry about finding replacement parts, which is more safe for patient.
