All-On-4 dental implant

When you’ve suffered severe tooth loss, the prospect of getting a completely new set of teeth in just one day sounds almost too good to be true. Yet, with All-on-4 dental implants, this is entirely possible. But what does “new teeth in a day” actually mean? Let’s clarify some things:

How the Process Works

The journey to your new smile isn’t a one-and-done deal. While the treatment to get new teeth does take place in a day, the process to get to that point takes place over several visits. First, there’s an initial consultation where the feasibility of the procedure for your unique dental situation is assessed. Next, there are follow-up visits. During these sessions, we’ll work with you to design your new smile, ensuring it aligns with your aesthetic preferences and functional needs. And then comes the big day: the visit where the magic happens. While it’s true that the main procedure is conducted in a single day, it’s essential to understand the broader context to manage expectations.

What is the Procedure and Is it Permanent?

The procedure places four strategically positioned implants on which a full arch of teeth is mounted. However, these teeth aren’t your final set. Think of them as temporary yet highly functional teeth. They’re sturdier than traditional dentures, meaning you can eat with them more comfortably. They serve as a trial phase, allowing you to experience and articulate what you love or might want to adjust about your new teeth. Once it’s clear what your needs and preferences are, you will get your permanent teeth.

What All-on-4 Implants Provide for You

All-on-4 implants are more than just a dental procedure; they’re a lifestyle transformation. They offer an immediate aesthetic enhancement. You’ll walk out with a full set of teeth all on four implants right after the procedure without the need for a bone graft. You’ll be able to eat, talk, and laugh with confidence just like you used to. The implants will stimulate your jawbone and prevent further bone loss. Plus, the implants don’t require special care. They’re just like your natural teeth!
