What is the All on Four Implant Solution?
The all on four implant solution involves inserting four implants below the gums and into the bone. These implants will fuse with the bone naturally over the course of just a few short months. Once stabilized, the implants can be used to keep a denture securely in place. This option enables denture wearers to get a more confident fit out of their prosthetic appliances.
Why is the All on Four Implant Solution needed?
We typically recommend this solution if you wear dentures and are tired of them constantly slipping or falling out. The key to the all on four procedure is to use four implants that connect to the denture appliance. This prevents the denture from slipping or falling out. It eliminates the need for gels, creams and adhesive strips that may or may not work for you.
What makes you a candidate for the All on Four Implant Solution?
In order to place implants, oral surgery is needed and general anesthesia may be required. Because of this, you need to be healthy enough to undergo surgery and have the ability to fully heal once the surgery is complete. We will have a consultation with you before the implants are placed. We’ll go over your medical and health history to determine if you’re a good candidate for all on four implants.
What can be expected during the procedure for the All on Four Implant Solution?
At J&A Dental, we will first administer sedation to make the surgery comfortable for you. We will then create four small incisions through the gums and will carefully insert four implants into the bone underneath. The procedure is done precisely to offer the best fit possible when wearing your dentures. The two implants furthest back in your mouth may be inserted on a slight angle. The implants are given time to heal and you’ll then need to come back in to have a specially made denture appliance for you to wear.
