What Dental Implant Options Are Available Nowadays?

Normal dental implants have been around for quite a long time and many patients have been able to reap the benefits these normal dental implants can deliver. However, there is a small percentage of patients who have not been able to take advantage of these normal dental implants, more specifically patients who do not have a sufficient amount of jawbone to form the foundation for the dental implants. Patients with a limited amount of jawbone were able to choose bone grafting, which could make them eligible for dental implants in the future. However, bone grafting is an expensive and lengthy process.

Thanks to a number of advancements in the world of dentistry, patients with a limited amount of jawbone no longer need to undergo bone grafting in order to benefit from dental implants. One of these treatments is All-On-4, where four dental implants are inserted into the upper and/or lower jawbone of the patient.

Could All-On-4 Benefit Me?

A lot of patients who come to the Malo Clinic are eligible for the procedure. However, you can also gain more information on the subject by attending one of our free information evenings or read some of the information pages available on the Malo Clinic website.

In addition to the free information evenings, patients can also find several podcasts on the website. These podcasts feature Dr Larry Benge, one of the Malo Clinic dentists and an expert in the field of dental implants. The podcasts can be listened to on the website, but can also be downloaded via iTunes.

Can All-On-4 Be a Solution for Tooth Loss Caused by Trauma?

There are a number of patients who have lost several teeth due to trauma, usually caused by not wearing a mouthguard during contact sports. These patients can also find a solution at the Malo Clinic, since the All-On-4 dental implant technique is also suitable for these patients.

What About Patients with a Limited Amount of Jawbone in the Upper Jaw?

The upper jaw can be a real problem for many, especially when there is only a limited amount of jawbone to work with. However, the All-On-4 treatment can be adjusted according to the situation of the patient. For example, patients with a limited amount of upper jawbone can benefit more from Quad or Zygoma dental implants.

When you come to the Malo Clinic for your evaluation, the dentist will lay out all available options for you. The best thing about All-On-4 is that the treatment can be customised according to the patient, which opens a world of possibilities where treatment options are concerned.
