The All-on-Four™ dental implant process is the most modern solution offered by today's dentistry - as close as you can get to having natural teeth.
While some patients may have a single tooth dental implant, the All-on-Four™ process lodges 4 implants into your jaw. A permanent arch of either upper or lower teeth are then affixed to the implants.
We have been asked, can the body reject a dental implant? Let’s consider the procedure and aftercare in order to address this question.
After removing a patients old teeth, the first step is to place 4-5 titanium implants into the jaw, which will serve as the anchors for the arch of teeth. Titanium has properties that are well assimilated by the human body. This natural material is very strong and it resists corrosion.
A major part of the dental implant procedure is preparation. The implant team will assess your health and your commitment to ongoing dental maintenance. Equally important to the dental implant success is follow-up dental hygiene.
As with any dental procedure, you will receive follow-up care. The implant team will check to be sure that the bone continues to accept the titanium implant. At home, you should maintain a good dental routine as prescribed by their dentist. Just like natural teeth, implants can deteriorate if they don’t have a clean and healthy environment in which to exist.
During follow-up dental visits the implants are checked to be certain that they continue to bond with the bone, and that the chance of rejection remains small. With proper preparation and continued maintenance, a dental implant will provide the patient with a natural looking, healthy tooth for years to come.
