Innovatie All-on-4® Dental Implants
If you are looking to replace missing teeth with the superior restorative treatment that dental implants provide, there are a variety options available to you. As a nationally respected implantologist, Dr. Michael E. Corsello provides the highest quality of customized dental care for every patient, and can help you understand your treatment options. For many patients looking to experience the benefits of dental implants, the advanced All-on-4® technique provides a convenient, cost-effective solution. In Pittsburgh, PA, Dr. Corsello is a premier provider of All-on-4® implants and Snaptite Smile®, offering superior restorative dentistry to all patients, including those who may not qualify for traditional implants.
All-on-4® and Snaptite Smile®
Restored with the Snaptite Smile® system, the All-on-4® technique can help you achieve a restored smile that looks natural and reflects your personality. We can also provide life-changing treatment in less time. In many cases, patients can receive their implants and that same day, leave the office with a new prosthesis securely attached. The Snaptite Smile® full-arch bridge is easily removable, allowing you to conveniently clean your teeth and gum tissue at home. This advanced feature helps prevent the bacterial build-up that can occur with a conventional fixed implant denture, which requires a dentist appointment for a full cleaning. You can enjoy a cleaner, fresher mouth on a daily basis and a customzied, state-of-the-art prosthesis that significantly improves your quality of life.
About All-on-4® Dental Implants
Like all types of dental implants, All-on-4® implants provide new, replacement roots for lost teeth. All-on-4® implants are also made of titanium alloy, but are sized differently and placed into the jaw in a specialized position. Utilizing just four implants, this technology creates a stable anchor for a full dental arch and provides function and aesthetics that are far superior to traditional, removable dentures and fixed dental bridges.
The All-on-4® technique also offers a less invasive process that requires less bone tissue for a successful outcome. These advanced implants are often an ideal solution for patients who have experienced significant loss of bone density in their jaw and who may not be able to tolerate conventional implants placement without bone grafting or another surgery. Introduced about 25 years ago, the All-on-4® technique places the two implants at a 45-degree angle in the back of the jaw that tilt toward the front of the jaw. The unique placement makes the most of jaw bone density in this specific location. While standard implants require six to eight posts for a dental arch, the All-on-4® method provides full support with fewer implants. Dr. Corsello typically can place only four implants, and in some cases, can use only two.
The first step in the dental implant treatment process is an in-depth evaluation of your jaw and facial bone structure. Dr. Corsello uses the latest diagnostic techniques to calculate exact measurements and plan precise placement of your implants. Using advanced technology such as computerized tomography (CT) scans, he will place your dental implants in the strongest areas of your jaw. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a few days.
Northland Dental Medicine is dedicated to providing personalized treatment solutions for each and every patient.
You can receive implant-restorations the same day as your surgery, but they will be temporary, and should be replaced after the healing and fusion period ends. After a few months, the implants will be fully integrated into the jaw, and you will receive your permanent restoration. Expect your Snaptite Smile® to be aesthetic, supremely functional, and very comfortable – a significant improvement for traditional denture patients.
