What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 implants are a fixed denture that is typically supported by 4 implants. These are strategically placed in both the top and bottom of the mouth. One benefit with All-on-4 is that implants are not required for every tooth, making the process easier. Implants are permanent and reliable, and are built to last upwards of 25 years, or a lifetime if taken care of properly. Dental implants are fused to the jawbone and this makes them extremely stable. Once implants are healed, most can withstand more pressure than our natural teeth.
How Do I Know If I Am a Good Candidate for All on 4s?
Most patients that are missing teeth are good candidates for All-on-4 dental implants. The best candidates are ones that are missing teeth along the dental ridge. As part of our evaluation process, we will examine your mouth and jaw, and determine if you have enough tissue and jaw structure to support your new implants. If needed, bone grafting can be done to give you the additional support required. All-on-4 implants give patients a quick restoration solution that restores your overall mouth function and looks natural.
What Can I Expect During the Healing Process?
The healing process is quicker with All-on-4 implants compared to other restorative options. Patients should plan for at least a few months of healing while the implant fuses to the jawbone. We recommend patients follow a liquid diet right after their surgery. As you move through the healing process, you can start to introduce soft foods back to your diet. We require all patients to return to our office for a follow up visit. This allows our doctors to make sure everything looks good, and the implants are healing properly.
