Dental implants are a treatment option for tooth loss in adults. For those have multiple missing teeth, All-On-Four dental implants offer a permanent and much more secure option than traditional dentures. Unlike dentures, a full arch is placed using four to six dental implants. Because your new teeth are supported by titanium roots, you don’t need to worry about them slipping or falling out while you’re chewing and speaking.
New patients come in for an initial consultation which includes x-rays and a full exam which generally takes about 90 minutes. Before beginning treatment, patients will have a CT scan and the new teeth will need to be fabricated. The placement of the new teeth can be completed in one day under sedation. There will be a three to four-month healing period before the final restoration is constructed and permanently attached. Then, an annual maintenance appointment for three years is required. Patients will also need to get regular cleanings, too. These dental implants are designed to function just as if you had your own teeth.
