If you have been told a dental implant was not an applicable solution in the past because of the lack of jawbone integrity and mass, you may now be able restore your smile with the All-on-4 technique.

All-on-4 dental implants can restore your healthy and permanent smile.

The All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure

Your introduction to the procedure will be a consultation with Missouri River Dental. During this consultation, our team will examine your mouth and take x-rays and a CT scan. This scan will allow us to evaluate your compatibility for implants. We will check your current jawbone density to identify precisely where the implants need to be inserted. If you are a feasible candidate and we agree to proceed, the next step will be to make dental impressions. These go to the dental lab where your new restoration is designed and created to fit and look just like natural teeth.

 

Before the introduction of All-on-4 dental implants, if you pursued a dental implant, you experienced almost a year of treatment. Now, with the All-on-4 dental implant procedure, the entire process, from extraction to implant placement to fixed teeth, can literally be achieved in just one visit with Missouri River Dental.

 

In the past, if you wanted to replace a denture with a full arch, six to ten dental implants were necessary to support the teeth and provide adequate strength. Now, with this innovative technology, the laws of physics and stronger materials, when the two back implants are placed at angles, their stability is increased, and therefore fewer implants are needed. The two anterior, or front, implants still stand upright, and the two posteriors, or back, implants are placed at 45-degree angles. The placement of these implants allows the All-on-4 to be successful when previously you would have required a bone graft.

 

The denser jawbone that remains in the front of your jaw offers ideal placement for the implants and the novel approach of placing the other two implants at an angle helps avoid the sinus cavities and the nerve canal. Missouri River Dental will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic to numb the immediate area being treated. We will surgically place four tiny titanium posts into your jawbone. The simplicity of this procedure reduces any discomfort. A prototype restoration is then placed on the four implant posts with snaps, letting you use it like normal teeth while your permanent restoration is being created at the dental lab. When completed, you can have a new restoration that you do not need to remove, like dentures.

All on Four Dental Implant Aftercare

In many cases, research has proven that placing the implants immediately following the tooth extraction can improve the outcome of the procedure. Missouri River Dental has seen our patients resume a normal diet in just six weeks after their implants are placed. The closer you follow the after-care instructions from us, the better your results will be.

 

During the weeks following your more surgical appointment, eating softer foods will keep you comfortable. Once the healing process begins, you can gradually introduce harder foods. When we have finished your All-on-4 treatment, and you are completely healed, you must continue to maintain good oral hygiene habits to keep your restoration healthy and your overall health strong.
