The All-On-Four procedure makes it possible for you to have your teeth removed, dental implants placed and restored with a fixed dental bridge all in the same day. This is an excellent option for patients who need to remove their remaining teeth.
This is a special technique for placing dental implants. An oral surgeon places dental implants on an angle, eliminating the need for bone grafting and sinus lifts, saving months of healing and thousands of dollars.
Benefits of All-on-Four dentures:
- Restores proper chewing, allowing patients to eat without restrictions
- Teeth are fixed not removable
- Increases comfort and esthetics
- Same day insertion of fixed bridge
What does getting All-on-Four involve?
The All-On-Four procedure takes place in two different offices. The first visit is in the restorative dentists office where models and records are taken to prepare the prosthesis.
The second visit takes place in an oral surgeon’s office. Under sedation all remaining teeth are removed and four implants are places. The restorative dentists will then take the prosthesis and convert it into a bridge. The new bridge is secured to the four implants at this appointment.
When the dental implants have fully integrated with the jaw bone, the temporary bridge will be removed and the permanent bridge will be fabricated and secured in place.
