All on 4 Dental Implants

The best candidates for All on 4 Dental Implants are patients who are wearing dentures, people who need false teeth, and for people who are having teeth extracted.

It’s important to note that while you can be any age for implants, you and your teeth and gums must be in good health prior to implant placement.

The Best Replacement

One of the biggest advantages of the All on 4 Dental Implants system is convenience. Because these artificial teeth are not removable, you can kiss those pastes and solutions goodbye. You will not be removing your teeth and you won’t have to use those gooey and messy denture adhesives.

These types of implants are much more comfortable as well. Like all implants, they are attached to posts that are surgically placed in or on your jawbone. This makes implants much more secure than dentures. It also means you won’t have to deal with bone deterioration.

Because the posts exercise the jawbone they are acting like real tooth roots. This means they fuse to the bone. This is a process known as osseointegration.

All on 4 Dental Implants Procedure

If you and Inspired Smiles agree that you are a good candidate you can expect to be in surgery for about 5 hours. That means 2.5 hours per arch. Each arch has 4 posts that will be surgically placed.

Once the surgery is completed you will be fitted with a temporary dental bridge that is placed while your gums and bone heal. This could take from 6 to 9 months or longer depending on how quickly you heal.

Unlike some dental implants you probably won’t need bone grafting either which adds to the healing time.

Once you have healed your permanent set of artifical teeth will be cemented into place and polished to perfection. Your new smile is just as sturdy, if not stronger, than your natural teeth.

Dental Implant Care

Just like natural teeth, All on 4 Dental Implants require care. You will need to brush and floss as you normally would. Although you won’t get tooth decay in your artificial teeth, you are still suspetible to gum disease.
