All-on-4 implants are replacement teeth that fasten to dental implants surgically placed in your jawbone. The implants consist of a titanium post that your dentist places into your jawbone. As the implants fuse to the bone, they act like natural tooth roots. All-on-4 implants consist of 4 implants strategically positioned to support a prosthetic row of teeth.
All-on-4 implants permanently attach to the implants, so you don’t have to worry about removing them for cleaning and sleep. These top-of-the-line replacements give you a natural look and feel.
All-on-4 implants can replace the upper, lower, or both arches of teeth. The team at Beaches Dentistry - Prosthetics & Orthodontics completes the entire surgical portion of the treatment in one visit.
Plan on several visits to complete the entirety of your All-on-4 procedure. You’ll start with a consultation during which the team at Beaches Dentistry - Prosthetics & Orthodontics evaluates your medical and oral health history. They also evaluate the bone density in your jaw and gum health to ensure you can support implants. If you do need treatments, like a bone graft, before receiving implants, they can arrange all services.
You’ll undergo CT scans that generate a 3D image of your jawbone and teeth. These scans enable your dentist to customize your All-on-4 plan and you to visualize your new smile.
Your dental team administers local anesthesia at the surgical visit. The dentist makes small incisions in precise places in your gum line and drills the implants in your jawbone.
You go home to recover. During the next few months, the jawbone grows around the implants to create a sturdy base for your prosthetic teeth. Once your implants are ready, you return to Beaches Dentistry - Prosthetics & Orthodontics to have the prosthetic arches placed and bonded into place.
All-on-4 implants offer a viable alternative to traditional dentures. You care for them just like your natural teeth with routine brushing and flossing. They look and feel quite natural, so you don’t have to worry about slipping and sliding as you speak and chew.
The implants also stimulate your jawbone like a natural tooth root, so you don’t experience the rapid bone loss that often occurs with missing teeth. The implants can last a lifetime with good care.
