The All-on-4 dental implants provide a suitable alternative for patients looking for a total smile transformation. This minimally-invasive treatment approach virtually eliminates the need for bone grafts, reducing treatment time, post-operative discomfort, and complications. At Family Smiles Fort Lee, we offer the All-on-4 implants procedure to restore the functioning and aesthetic of your smile.
What is All-on-4®?
The All-on-4® is a full-arch restoration that utilizes a minimum of four dental implants to reinstate an entire arch of missing or impaired teeth in the mouth. This restoration will support the dentures, extending a more comfortable and secure fit. Another significant advantage of All-on-4 procedures is that the entire process can be accomplished in a single day. It delivers an instant full-mouth restoration, and the patient can expect to have a beautiful and functional smile the same day.
Candidates for All-on-4®
- You should have excellent overall oral health with a robust immune system.
- You should have an entire arch of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
- Your gums should be healthy and have adequate jawbone strength.
- You should not smoke or chew tobacco products.
Benefits of All-on-4®
Some of the critical benefits of All-on-4® dental implants include:
- Less recovery compared with a complete set of dental implants
- Lower cost
- Preservation of jawbone density
- Beautiful, natural-looking results
- Long-lasting results
- Customized fit that is firm and comfortable
- Same maintenance as natural teeth
What to Expect During the All-on-4® Process?
People using conventional dentures for years are ideal candidates for this process as it delivers them with a more permanent and durable solution. The All- on- 4 treatments will reduce the treatment time as they can be completed in a single day. But still, the process requires a lot of advance planning. If necessary, the decayed or impaired teeth can be extracted on the same day as the placement of the implants and the prosthetic teeth.
On the day of the surgery, our dentists will numb your gums with local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Tiny incisions are drilled in the gums to create space for the implants, and the titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone. We use high-tech technology to guide the accurate placement of the implants. The surgical site is sutured after the implant's studs are placed, and the dental appliances such as crowns or bridges are secured over them.
