Made by Nobel Biocare, All-on-4 dental implants provide an advanced method of replacing missing teeth with a full restoration. This procedure works by placing implant screws in four spots on the upper or lower arch. In comparison to other enhanced denture options, All-on-4 utilizes fewer implants to offer a secure hold. Our board-certified dental team may suggest All-on-4 implants if you're wanting to completely restore your oral health and smile without the bother and diet limitations of removable dentures. Many West Bridgewater, MA patients have enjoyed the advantages of the new All-on-4 process, appreciating quality outcomes. If you're interested in learning more on All-on-4 and custom-made dentures, then we welcome you to schedule a consultation at West Bridgewater Dental.
All-on-4 dental implants may be utilized to replace the upper and/or lower dental arches by combining implants with a custom full-arch restoration. You may be a good candidate for All-on-4 implants of you prefer the advantages of implant-supported dentures over traditional, removable dentures. Such benefits include no or few diet limitations, no sticky glues, and no denture soaking. You must have sufficient gum and bone density to receive implants since these tooth replacements rely upon your gums and bone to keep them in position. If necessary, gum and bone grafts might be required before implant surgery. During your consultation, our experienced dentists and specialists will discuss your options for tooth replacement and can determine if All-on-4 implants are ideal for you.
What to Expect
To start your All-on-4 treatment, we'll take impressions and x-rays of your mouth. Our team will develop your personal treatment plan and review your options for sedation to ensure your comfort. During your first procedure, four dental implants will be surgically positioned your mouth. Our dentists will then affix a temporary restoration to protect the dental implants as your gums and jawbone recover and your permanent set of teeth are created. In a few months, you'll return to our office to have your custom-made restoration attached and then adjusted for a good fit.
You might feel some discomfort in your mouth following implant surgery. During the time you're using temporary dentures, there'll be some dietary limitations and cleaning directions to follow. You'll also visit our practice for routine follow-ups throughout the recovery period so we can monitor your recovery and be certain that the implants are integrating with your jawbone. As soon as your custom replacement teeth have been attached, you should clean them just like normal teeth with regular flossing and brushing. You should still visit West Bridgewater Dental for yearly examinations and twice-yearly professional cleanings to maintain your All-on-4 implants and enable our team to monitor the health of your mouth.
Some insurance companies may provide partial coverage for custom restorations and All-on-4 implants. It's very likely that there'll be some personal expenses; however, our staff will use your insurance to optimize your benefits. If you don't have insurance, West Bridgewater Dental accepts several payment options, including low-interest financing. Our team will do our best to help ensure tooth replacement with All-on-4 implants fits into your budget.
