The All-on-8 dental implants is an effective, permanent solution for the replacement of missing teeth, to restore the appearance and function of the smile. Dental implants all-on-8 also prove an effective method for patients lacking teeth with severe bone to get the benefits of implant supported dentures. This dental procedure is one of the various dental implant systems that exist. Choosing the right dental implant system for you is vitally important, in order to ensure your specific needs and specifications are met.
There are many materials used for dental implants, from which derive different types of all-on-8 dental implants. There are two main groups: ceramic dental implants and metallic dental implants.
Ceramic dental implants are absolutely metal free and very resistant to acids and bases, offering an excellent alternative to Titan implants. Also ceramic implants are biocompatible and biologically neutral. This means that the compatibility with bone and gum tissue is excellent and therefore does not cause allergic reactions. The big plus on full ceramic implants is the aesthetic and very natural look. The abutment of the ceramic dental implant is made from ceramic and the crown from the same material. The one-piece ceramic, also known as zirconium implant has no connections, where bacteria can develop, thus ensuring a better gum health.
Titanium dental implants are also incredibly durable and long-lasting. The big advantage is that although it is a meal, it allows patients with titanium implants to be safely examined with MRIs. Besides titanium is one of the only metals that allows your body’s natural bone and tissue actually bond to the artificial implant. Other advantages for titanium implants are the strength, but lightweight aspect. It is also corrosion resistant, non-toxic, and therefore cost-efficient. The abutment of the titanium dental implant is made from titanium and the crown from porcelain. Porcelain-fused-to-titanium crowns with an all porcelain collar won’t expose the titanium margin at the gum line as gums recede over time.
Porcelain dental implants make an excellent choice for restoring front teeth. Porcelain resist stains better and because it better mimics the light reflecting properties of natural teeth is the most cosmetically pleasing of all of the different types. Even though porcelain crowns are made from ceramic material, they are quite strong and sturdy, allowing patients to bite and chew as they normally would. The abutment of the porcelain dental implant is made from titanium or zirconium and the crown from porcelain. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns with an all porcelain collar can cover perfectly the hidden metal margin at the gum line as gums retracts over time.
Gold dental implants are still preffered by patients because they are durable, resistant and safe. Depending on the colour preference of the patient, either a white or yellow gold alloy can be used. Gold material is mostly used for molar restorations because it can withstand excessive changes in oral temperature that happen when a person takes hot and cold drinks. Also, its surfaces can endure a high polish that can prevent plaque formation and reduce tooth abrasion. The drawbacks for this choice are the costs and the aesthetic aspect. The abutment and the crown of the gold dental implant are made from the same noble metal. Patients with strong bites and those with habits such as grinding or clenching might be better go with a gold crown. For aesthetic purpose, porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns with an all porcelain collar can eliminate the hidden gold margin at the gum line as gums retracts over time.
Note: If your jaw bone structure does not allow you to get dental implants or dental implants systems you can benefit from sinus lifting or box technique.
The aim of dental implants all-on-8 is to act as tooth roots, dispersing similar force around the mouth to secure teeth structure and ease oral activity, such as swallowing, speaking and eating. Your teeth play an important role in forming your facial structure, so restoring a damaged smile can enhance and improve your entire appearance. Not to mention the impact on your health when in comes to high-quality dentition.
