Have you lost all or most of your teeth? You could opt for a traditional denture, but many patients find traditional dentures to be uncomfortable or unstable. Dental implants, on the other hand, offer outstanding durability, stability, and longevity — in many ways, they are similar to natural teeth in both form and function. And, thanks to the remarkable All-on-4 procedure, you could regain a complete smile in as little as one day!
During the All-on-4 procedure, Dr. Osseiran places four strategically located dental implants into the jawbone. Two go at the front of the mouth, and two go toward the back of the mouth, in places where the bone is naturally thickest. During the same procedure, Dr. Osseiran also places a temporary, implant-retained denture. Therefore, you could literally wake up that morning with an entire row of missing teeth and go to bed with a complete smile. After you have had some time to heal from your surgery, you’ll return to our office so we can provide you with a permanent, custom-made denture that will offer you even better function and aesthetics than your temporary one.
This treatment can even help those patients who have been told they are ineligible for dental implants in the past due to the strength and thickness of their jawbone. That is because in All-on-4, the implants are placed in such a way that utilizes areas where the jaw is naturally strong and thick. Of course, that doesn’t automatically mean that everyone who has suffered extensive tooth loss is a candidate for All-on-4. When you visit us for your consultation, we will carefully evaluate your oral health and make a personalized treatment plan to help you rebuild your lost smile.
Some of the most outstanding benefits of All-on-4 implants include:
While the All-on-4 procedure offers numerous advantages, that does not make it superior to traditional dental implants. For example, an All-on-4 denture is permanently attached to its supporting implants, whereas traditional implants allow for the option of a removable overdenture. Many patients enjoy having a removable prosthetic because it simplifies their oral hygiene routine and helps them keep the area around their implants as clean as possible.
