All-on-4 Dental Implants in Olivehurst, CA

Romantic couple smiling and cuddling on a sunny dayAll-on-4® is a full procedure especially developed for clients without enough bone for conventional implants. In the past, if a patient had no sufficient bone left for implants, they only had two choices: ordinary dentures or a jawbone graft procedure. All-on-4® provides the option for dental implants without requiring a bone graft.

The All-on-4® Solution

All-on-4® offers a variety of advantages not found with typical dental implants solutions. For instance, All-on-4® is:

  • Higher Quality — The dental implants used with All-on-4® are specifically created for patients with minimal jawbone.
  • Lesser Budget — 50% of the budget for implants comes from the need for bone grafts. Eliminating jawbone grafts while safely relying on existing bone lessens cost.
  • Minimal Time — Bone grafts must recuperate and solidify before implant dental procedures can begin, prolonging the time from beginning to end. With All-on-4®, no jawbone grafts are required.
  • Better Aesthetics — Many customers are able to depart our practice with their first set of “healing dentures” on the day we place their implants.

Using All-on-4® lets more adults benefit from the life-changing improvements of dental implants. And to offer more trust, the entire All-on-4® line of products is made by Nobel Biocare, a Scandinavian company that was the first to sell dental implants for use around the world.

The All-on-4® Procedure

What Are Your Goals?

Only four dental implants are needed to replace the teeth on the mandibular and maxillary curvature of the jawbone, therefore the name All-on-4®. During your initial consult for All-on-4®, our Olivehurst dentist determines your goals. For example, do you desire permanently affixed dentures, or the form that snap-off and on the implants? What color and appearance would you want for the teeth? What is your dental history and how will it affect your treatment? Are you employing All-on-4® for both the lower and upper arch, or just one?

Where to Attach Your Implants?

Once your plans have been established, the following stage is to determine the application of your implants. The system of fastening dental implants demands a great deal of skill. To help with this, scans and x-rays are done to find the essential jawbone structure that we will use to anchor your implants. Based on the accessible bone, we decide the style of All-on-4® treatment required and the implants recommended to to ensure success.

The All-on-4® Dental Implant Process

We also consider your smile. Thorough gratification is our purpose, and that means designing a practical implant that works correctly and looks great to you and others! Based on the shape of your jaws, the way you smile, and the ideal length of your gums and teeth, some cosmetic modifications on your gums may be needed during the procedure.

Installing the Implants

After finishing our careful planning stage, you return to the office for the attachment of your dental implants. Any cosmetic alterations to the gums are also completed at this time. The implants are tested at the time of attachment. If they can hold the anticipated force from chewing, we apply a set of “healing dentures” on the implants. These are attached, temporary dentures that limit the forces placed on your implants.

Completing Your Dental Implant Procedure

After a recovery period of two to three months, the implants have merged with your jawbone and can manage the forces generated by eating with standard dentures. Throughout that time, your customized dentures were created conforming to your specifications. Whenever you return, we take out the mending dentures and install the long-lasting dentures. If they are the detachable type, we make sure you can remove them quickly before leaving our office.

With your brand new, complete set of teeth, you can return to experiencing the diet you like, to speaking normally, to singing, and to laughing with confidence! The implants reinforce your jaw and secure the remaining bone. Your appearance and self-confidence increase, and a vital aspect of your life seems normal again!
