All-on-4® Treatment Concept
The All-on-4 treatment concept is a great way to make you feel as comfortable as possible while giving you natural-looking teeth. With this treatment, a horseshoe-shaped denture is secured to the implants at the time of placement. Therefore, you have non-removable teeth at day-one of treatment.
How it Works
We first need to place four titanium posts into the jawbone. These will be the secure points that will support the teeth and keep them in place. Implants are similar to posts, and the ones for the All-on-4 treatment have some unique features.
These implants are positioned at an angle to solidify the anchor’s strength. Your denture can be placed immediately, due to the increased stability of the implants.
Procedure for the All-on-4 Treatment Concept
This process begins with the x-rays; we use 3D x-rays since they’re the most complete. This way, we can get a good image to plan your implant treatment. We use a computerized drilling system to prepare the jawbone and place the implants.
We’ll then proceed to place the denture permanently.
What to Expect From the Procedure
During the procedure, you will be anesthetized so that you won’t feel any pain. Also, you have the option to be sedated, depending on your particular needs.
We'll make sure to prescribe the necessary medications, so your pain level is kept at a minimum. We want to make sure that you’re comfortable, don’t experience any pain, and that you’re able to go back to your normal activities quickly.
The All-on-4 treatment concept is a great way to get teeth that are just like your natural teeth in both appearance and function. You will be able to speak, eat, and interact as usual without having to worry about your dentures. Moreover, the added bonus is that they require just the same care as natural teeth, which makes it a very convenient option.
