Who Should Get All-on-4?
All-on-4 implants are a great option for people who have lost most or all of their teeth. During your initial consultation with us, our dentist can determine if All-on-4 dental implants are the best choice for your particular situation.
What Happens During All-on-4?
On the day of your procedure, we will first administer anesthesia and sedation to help you feel relaxed. Once the treatment area is numb and you are comfortable, we will surgically place about four dental implants. The implants will serve as anchors for your future teeth. After the implants have been placed, we will secure a temporary set of teeth to the implants. After your jaw has healed, we will secure a specially-designed denture onto the implants, provide you with care instructions, and schedule your follow-up appointments.
What Are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a permanent option for missing teeth. Because the implants are inserted into the jawbone, they are a permanent solution. Unlike removable dentures, dentures on All-on-4 implants will not slip out of place and are a permanent replacement.
Because All-on-4 dental implants are permanently affixed, they do not need to be removed for cleaning. However, patients should still practice good oral hygiene.
What Results Can I Expect with All-on-4 Dental Implants?
During your consultation, we will cover what to expect after All-on-4 surgery. In the days following your procedure, You should expect to experience some swelling and discomfort. To alleviate this, we will help you manage any discomfort with over-the-counter pain medications.
