All On Four
The "All-on-Four" solution is attractive to patients wishing to upgrade from dentures, and to those in need of a full upper and/or lower restoration. This procedure, as the name implies, requires four dental implants per jaw to support a fully customized set of replacement teeth. The entire "All-on-Four" treatment is completed while the patient is comfortably under sedation. The procedure is entirely painless and a full set of replacement teeth is ready in just 24 hours.
Why choose All-on-Four?
Modern implant-based dentistry has provided a solution for edentulous (toothless) patients that traditional dentures have never been able to deliver: Immediate functionality with substantially increased quality of life. This is accomplished through a prosthesis held solidly in place by four dental implants (the "All-on-Four" Procedure) which not only provides the comfort and security a patient is likely to be missing with removable dentures, but importantly also preserves bone in the jaw. In addition to receiving a fully customized set of replacement teeth in just one day, another positive benefit afforded by the "All-on-Four" procedure is its ability to almost always bypass the need for bone grafting, a surgery frequently required by more traditional treatment for patients with substantial loss of bone in the jaw.
The "All-on-Four" procedure eliminates the day-to-day frustrations and discomforts of dentures and patients can once again enjoy the dietary freedom of those with natural teeth. It is the most sophisticated solution there is to tooth loss and edentulism.
Traditional approaches to restoring a full arch of teeth usually involved bone grafts, six or more implants and as many as 18 months of treatment, resulting in a delay of more than a year without teeth or with Ill-fitting temporary dentures. With the All-On-Four Dental Implant Procedure, only one or two visits are required to allow the cosmetic dentist and oral surgeon to gather information for a treatment plan (e.g., CAT scan, X-rays, impressions, photos). Following this consultation, the patient is scheduled for surgery implantation and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted within 24 hours (even when extractions are necessary).
The patient returns for occasional check-ups over the next several weeks and months and after a period of six months, when the gums have fully healed and the implants are fused to the natural bone, new impressions are taken of the patient's mouth and replaced with a stronger, permanent set of teeth. This ensures longest tooth life and provides maximum support, beauty and function for the patient.
