The Procedure behind All on 4 Dental Implants in Scottsdale
All on 4 dental implants in Scottsdale, as the name suggests, involves the surgical placement of only four dental implants in regions of the jaw where there naturally exists a greater volume of bone tissue. The anterior (front) portion of the jaw will usually contain enough bone volume to support dental implants in Scottsdale because it is more resistant to atrophy, explains Dr Kevin Gasser in Arizona. And this is a problem that arises in cases of acute and chronic periodontal disease. The more posterior dental implants (see picture above) are strategically inserted at an angle so as to allow for ample support for a fixed bridge while avoiding damage to the nerve canal in the lower jaw and the sinus cavity in the upper jaw. Once the surgical phase of All on 4 dental implants in Scottsdale has been drawn to a close, Dr Kevin Gasser in Arizona will affix a fully customized prosthetic dental bridge to the abutments or collars of the four dental implants, which can usually be accomplished that very same day. This prosthesis is expertly fabricated from molds that have been taken of a patient’s teeth and gums during a prior appointment.
