All-on-4 Dental Implants in Grass Valley, CA

Romantic couple smiling and cuddling on a sunny dayAll-on-4® is a complete procedure especially created for clients without enough jawbone for standard dental implants. Before, if a patient had not enough bone left for implants, they only had two choices: ordinary dentures or a jawbone graft treatment. All-on-4® offers the option for implants without requiring a jawbone graft.

Why Use All-on-4®?

All-on-4® includes a number of advantages not provided with traditional dental implants therapies. For instance, All-on-4® is:

  • Better Standard — The dental implants applied with All-on-4® are specifically developed for clients with less jawbone.
  • Lesser Cost — 50% of the cost for implants comes from the requirement for bone grafts. Eliminating bone grafts while securely depending on existing bone reduces expense.
  • Minimal Time — Bone grafts must recover and firm up before implant procedures can start, prolonging the time from beginning to end. With All-on-4®, no bone grafts are involved.
  • Better Attractiveness — Most clients are ready to depart our office with their first set of “healing dentures” on the day we install their dental implants.

So if you’re weary from loose dentures or have endeavored to brave life without teeth, the All-on-4® technique is made to aid you and the Yuba City Dentistry Group is ready to assist with this life-adjusting treatment.

The All-on-4® Treatment

What Are Your Objectives?

Only four dental implants are required to restore the teeth on the maxillary and mandibular arch of the jaw, thus the name All-on-4®. During your first consult for All-on-4®, our Grass Valley doctor determines your plans. For example, do you desire permanently affixed artificial teeth, or the type that snap-off and on the dental implants? What appearance and color would you want for the teeth? What is your dental background and how will it affect your treatment? Are you using All-on-4® for both the maxillary and mandibular arch, or just one?

Determining Dental Implant Attachment

After deciding on your desires, we then move to the question of where to locate your implants. Placing implants is careful work. Our doctor needs to comprehend perfectly how much bone you have and where the bones are solid. The location and length of the dental implants are determined by taking x-rays and scans of the mouth and the surrounding bone framework. All-on-4® provides various sizes of implants and designs of dental prosthetics based on your individual needs.

The All-on-4® Dental Implant Procedure

Digital data about your bone structure, gumline, and jaw is used to construct guides that aid the dentist to place the dental implants precisely. Some tooth extractions may be necessary, and adjustments may be done to your gumline for cosmetic reasons. The dental implants are all attached at the same time. For most patients, after confirming the strength of the implants’ connection to the jawbone, transitional “healing dentures” are screwed in place on the dental implants, so you can depart our dental office with a full set of teeth on the same day as your treatment.

Completing Your Process

After a healing period of 2-3 months, the implants have integrated with your jawbone and can manage the forces created by chewing with standard dentures. Throughout that time, your custom-made dentures were produced according to your specifications. Whenever you return, we remove the recuperation dentures and affix the long-term dentures. If they are the detachable type, we make sure you can take them off easily before leaving our office.

With your brand-new, complete set of teeth, you can return to experiencing the meals you like, to communicating normally, to singing, and to laughing with self-confidence! The implants support your jaw and protect the remaining bone. Your appearance and self-esteem increase, and a critical part of your life appears normal again!
