If any doctor has ever stated that you are not a good prospect for implants or a full mouth reconstruction, then the All-on-4® aligner technology is especially founded for you! A serious challenge suffered by many adults is that they have no teeth or very poor teeth due to bone decay. The only way you can attach implants is with a lot of good jawbone! Now the Yuba City Dentistry Group provides you an effective solution to this problem in the Auburn area.
The All-on-4® Resolution
Before, the only cure for a lack of bone was appending more bone with grafting. Albeit bone grafting has benefits, it also adds expense and requires more time for healing. The All-on-4® resolution to the jawbone grafting dilemma was began over thirty years ago in Portugal. Investigation, exploring, and creation, followed by decades of study around the world, led to obviously clear confirmation of the following benefits that come from All-on-4®:
- Heightened Caliber — The implants used with All-on-4® are specifically developed for customers with minimal jawbone.
- Lower Cost — Half of the cost for dental implants comes from the requirement for jawbone grafts. Eliminating bone grafts while safely depending on existing bone reduces expense.
- Less Time — Bone grafts must recuperate and solidify before implant procedures can start, lengthening the time from beginning to end. With All-on-4®, no jawbone grafts are needed.
- Finer Esthetics — Most customers leave our practice with their first set of “healing dentures” on the day we attach their implants!
So, if you’re tired of loose dentures or have struggled to brave life without teeth, the All-on-4® system is designed to fit your needs and the Yuba City Dentistry Group is ready to assist with this life-adjusting treatment.
The All-on-4® Treatment
What Are Your Objectives?
First, we need to realize what your goals are for a full mouth rehabilitation. Are you pleased with your upper or lower jaw and just need to change one arch? Do both arches need restoration? Do you have any behavioral, physical, or medical issues that affect the choices we make to create the most anxiety free possible result? Do you want permanently affixed dentures or “snap-in” artificial teeth that are removable for flossing and brushing?
Choosing Dental Implant Installation
After discussing your desires, we then progress to the question of where to place your implants. Placing dental implants is meticulous work. Our doctor needs to comprehend perfectly how much jawbone you have and where the bones are strongest. The length and location of the dental implants are chosen by taking scans and x-rays of the mouth and the surrounding jawbone structure. All-on-4® provides different sizes of implants and designs of dental prosthetics based on your individual needs.
The All-on-4® Implant Process
Digital data about your bone structure, gumline, and jaw is used to create guides that help the dentist to place the implants perfectly. Some tooth extractions may be required, and adjustments might be done to your gumline for cosmetic reasons. The implants are all placed at the same time. For most customers, after verifying the durability of the implants’ connection to the bone, transitional “healing dentures” are screwed in place on the implants, so you can leave our dental office with a full group of teeth on the same day as your procedure.
Finishing Your Procedure
After a mending period of two to three months, the implants have fused with your jawbone and can handle the forces produced by eating with standard dentures. During that time, your fitted dentures were made according to your specifications. When you return, we remove the mending dentures and apply the permanent dentures. If they are the removable style, we make sure you can take them out effortlessly before leaving our clinic.
With your brand-new, complete group of teeth, you can return to experiencing the meals you like, to communicating normally, to singing, and to laughing with esteem! The implants brace your jaw and protect the remaining bone. Your self-confidence and appearance improve, and a critical part of your life appears comfortable again!
