At Advanced Dentistry of Alhambra, our team never wants you to feel as if you must settle for a treatment you do not want. If you are looking to replace your missing teeth but do not have enough jawbone support, you may feel as if your only options are to go with dentures or undergo a bone graft or sinus lift. Fortunately, there is an alternative solution that offers fast results and is void of any additional surgeries – All-On-4 dental implants. Read on to learn more about this unique method of treatment and contact us when you’re ready to schedule your appointment.
If you discover that your jawbone is not dense enough to support traditional dental implants, All-On-4 can be a life-changing solution. Using 4-6 strategically placed implants (typically implanted in the front area of your mouth where the bone is most dense), one of our periodontists will make small incisions in your gums before carefully positioning and angling the implants to ensure they can successfully support your restoration. As a skilled professional, they will make sure all implants are in the correct spot before closing up your gums around the surgical site and installing a temporary denture. After spending several months at home healing, you will return to have your custom restoration secured into place.
Once you have your permanent denture attached, you will enjoy the lasting effects of a healthier, more beautiful, and longer-lasting smile.
All-On-4, otherwise known as Teeth in a Day, are not just for individuals who cannot receive traditional dental implants. They’re also ideal for people who prefer a “quicker” solution. While many patients who are eligible for regular implants do not receive a temporary denture, All-On-4 allows you to see a fully restored smile the same day you arrived for surgery.
There are numerous benefits to choosing this type of restorative solution, some of which include:
