Fixed Bridge for a Full Arch (All on 4)
There is now a procedure that can replace your denture or broken down teeth in one day. Patients can now have a fixed bridge to replace all of their teeth that allows you to chew and function with teeth moving.
How is this possible?
The All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure uses four implants, with the back implants angulated to take maximum advantage of existing bone. This treatment is attractive to those with dentures or in need of full upper and/or lower restorations. With the All-on-4 Procedure, qualified patients receive just four implants and a full set of new replacement teeth in just one appointment—without bone grafts! The real appeal is how quickly permanent implants can be placed so that patients can leave the same day with fixed, non-removable replacement teeth.
Traditional approaches to restoring a full arch of teeth usually involved bone grafts, six or more implants, and as many as 18 months of treatment. That meant that a patient often would be without any teeth, or with ill-fitting temporary dentures for more than a year.
With the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure, the patient has one or two visits to the office to allow the Oral Surgeon and Restorative Dentists to gather information for a treatment plan. Following this consultation, the patient is scheduled for surgery implantation and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted, all in one appointment (even when extractions are necessary). The patient comes to the office in the morning with unhealthy (or no) teeth, and leaves in the afternoon with a beautiful set of fixed, functional teeth.
The patient will return for occasional check-ups over the next several weeks and months. After almost six months, when the gums have fully healed and the implants are fused to the natural bone. New impressions of the patient’s mouth are taken to prepare a final, stronger, permanent set of teeth adjusted to a perfect fit. This helps ensure that the teeth will last for decades, and provide maximum support, beauty, and function to the patient.
