If you are looking for a total reconstruction of your smile, All-on-4 dental implants may be the solution for you.
All-on-4 dental implants are permanent dental appliances and suitable even for patients who do not have enough jawbone density to support traditional dental implants.
What Is an All-on-4 Dental Implant?
The All-on-4 implant procedure is designed to support a complete denture on only four dental implants. This treatment is perfect for patients missing an entire row of teeth.
The All-on-4 implants technique makes use of only four strategically placed implant posts to support the entire dental restoration appliance. Two of the implants are placed vertically in the arch center, while two angled implants are placed in the back.
Thanks to this strategic placement, patients who suffer from jawbone degeneration can also qualify for All-on-4 dental implants without having to undergo bone grafting or sinus lift surgery.
In most cases, our dentists will provide your customized dentures on the same day as the placement of your dental implants, providing immediate restoration.
Who Is Eligible For an All-On-4 Dental Implant?
Our dentists will perform a complete analysis of your teeth and gums during an initial examination to decide if you are fit for this treatment
A patient should have the following qualities to undergo an All-on-4 dental implant procedure:
- Good overall oral health and a good immune system
- entire arch or most of the teeth missing in the upper or lower jaw
- Healthy gums and sufficient jawbone strength
- They do not smoke cigarettes or use other tobacco products
What Is the Procedure for Getting All-On-4 Implants?
People who have been wearing conventional dentures for years are the ideal candidates for the All-on-4 dental procedure as it offers them a more permanent solution.
The All-on-4 implants procedure can be accomplished in a single day but requires prior planning. If necessary, the decayed, worn out, or damaged teeth can be extracted on the same day as the placement of the implants and the artificial teeth.
During the procedure, our dentists will numb your gums with local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Minor incisions are made in the gums to create space for the implants, and the titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone.
At Silver First Dental, we use advanced technology to help guide the accurate placement of the implants.
In the end, the area of incisions is sutured and the bridges are secured.
The All-on-4 dental implants procedure is an efficient and effective way to restore your smile. If you are interested to know more, contact Silver Firs Dental in Mill Creek, Washington, at (425) 225-5757 to set up an appointment.
