What Are All On 4 Dental Implants?

The Innovative Solution for Missing Teeth

All on 4 dental implants are a cutting-edge dental procedure that provides a permanent, stable solution for missing teeth. This technique involves placing four titanium implants in the jawbone, which serve as a foundation for a full arch of prosthetic teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, these implants are fixed in place, offering a more natural and comfortable experience.

  1. Four Implants Per Arch: The procedure uses only four implants to support an entire arch of teeth.
  2. Immediate Load: In many cases, a temporary set of teeth can be fitted the same day.
  3. Bone Grafting Unnecessary: This technique often eliminates the need for bone grafting, even in patients with significant bone loss.

Consultation and Evaluation

  • Initial Assessment: Your journey begins with a detailed consultation with Dr. Rodriguez. This includes a full dental examination, reviewing your medical and dental history, and discussing your expectations and concerns.
  • Diagnostic Imaging: Advanced imaging techniques, like 3D CT scans, are employed to assess the quality and quantity of your jawbone. This step is crucial for precise implant placement planning.

Pre-Operative Preparation

  • Custom Treatment Plan: Based on the diagnostics, Dr. Rodriguez crafts a personalized treatment plan. This plan outlines the surgical procedure, anesthesia options, and any preparatory steps needed for your specific case.
  • Health Optimization: If necessary, any underlying oral health issues, such as gum disease, are treated before the implant procedure.

The Surgical Procedure

  • Anesthesia and Comfort: On the day of surgery, you’ll be made comfortable using appropriate anesthesia, ensuring a pain-free experience.
  • Implant Placement: Dr. Rodriguez places the four implants in specific locations in the jawbone. These implants are strategically positioned to offer maximum support and stability for the prosthetic teeth.

Healing and Integration

  • Post-Surgical Care: Detailed instructions on post-surgical care, including diet, hygiene, and medication, are provided to ensure smooth recovery.
  • Osseointegration: A crucial phase where the implants integrate with the jawbone, creating a strong foundation. This process typically takes a few months.

Final Restoration

  • Permanent Prosthetics: Once integration is complete, you’ll return for the placement of your permanent, custom-made prosthetic teeth. These are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
  • Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up visits are scheduled to monitor your implants and overall oral health.
