Replace Your Missing Teeth with Functional All-on-four Full Mouth Implants
Gone are the days when dentists would extract all your teeth without a restorative plan. Today, dentists like Dr. Tony Lu of Downtown Dental Services in Cleveland, Ohio, offer All-on-four dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth. With just a few dental implants, we allow the fixation of prostheses to replace your missing teeth in a single visit!
The all-on-four technique is ideal for patients with resorbed bones who are tired of failing dentures and want a more stable teeth replacement.
What are All-on-four dental implants?
All-on-four, or “Teeth in a Day,” is a teeth replacement that uses four to six implants to support a denture. Instead of an implant for every tooth lost, the all-on-four method simplifies teeth replacement by reducing the number of implants needed to replace your teeth.
The All-on-four procedure: What to expect
The procedure starts with a consultation with Dr. Lu. We take your medical history and discuss your expectations before mapping out your treatment plan. If you are eligible for the procedure, we use high-tech resources, like digital radiographs, digital scanners, and CT scans, to plan your treatment, boosting the success rate.
Next, we implant four to six implants strategically in your jawbone. The number of implants depends on your oral needs. After surgery, we can place a permanent or temporary restoration, depending on your case.
During the healing phase, your jawbone will integrate with the implants through osseointegration. This means that your implants will form a biological connection with the jawbone. As your implants heal, you must follow a specific diet plan and observe diligent oral hygiene to avoid implant infection (peri-implantitis).
After complete healing and fusion, your teeth restoration will function and feel like natural teeth. You can now show the whole world your new, healthy smile!
