The use of dental implants has revolutionized tooth replacement, including the placement of dentures with permanent and stable results. The dental team of Bella Smiles has the advanced training and experience needed to offer full service dental implants. This includes the All-on-4™ procedure for securing a top or bottom denture.
All-on-4® uses as few as four dental implants that we strategically place in the jaw for maximum health benefits when securing a denture. Using smaller implants, this procedure is often available to patients who have less bone structure in the jaw. Patients that did not qualify for traditional implants may do so with this implant method.
Furthermore, if you are currently wearing dentures and are unhappy with them, we can place your implant denture without the need for a bone graft. This will reduce the recovery time and cost.
The Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants
There are many benefits to choosing the All-on-4 implant method to replace your missing row of teeth:
- Can replace a full mouth of missing teeth
- Lower overall cost compared to traditional implant procedures
- Able to wear a temporary denture while recovering from the implant placement procedure
- Available to patients with tooth loss who have less available bone
- The dentist can place denture with only four implant posts
- The implants replace the teeth at the root reducing bone loss
All-on-4®: About the Procedure
With precise treatment planning, Dr. Sal Lotardo is often able to complete your All-on-4™ dental implant procedure in one day. He can do this even without the need for bone grafting. Using technology and digital imaging, Dr. Lotardo will plan the placement of four dental implants. This will maximize the available bone you have. We will place two of the implants at an angle to provide stability without the need to add bone with a graft or a long recovery.
On the day of your implant surgery, Dr. Lotardo will place the dental implants into the jaw. Then he will immediately attach a temporary denture. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of a functional smile while the soft tissues heal and the implants fuse with the bone.
The recovery period is about three to six months. Dr. Lotardo will provide important oral health and dietary guidelines for the recovery period. This will ensure that you heal properly to get lasting results. The last step is to place the denture that will look like natural teeth. You will be able to enjoy a normal diet without fear of your teeth falling out or shifting when you talk.
