All-on-4 dental implants are a full set of implants designed to replace your entire upper or lower set of teeth. They are designed to be more permanent and more natural-looking than other implant procedures. A dental professional will insert four titanium posts into your jawbone and then attach a permanent denture at the four locations to create a seamless look across your entire mouth.
If you want to learn more about All-on-4, talk to a New Jersey restorative dentist. Here at Marlen Elite Dental Wellness, we can help you decide which tooth replacement option is right for you. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Martirossian by calling us at (201) 546-8512.
Traditional dentures use clamps or glue to secure your tooth replacements to your smile. For a sturdier tooth replacement option, dental implants secure your new teeth with small metal screws that attach to your jaw.
With All-on-4 dentures, though, your dentist will secure an entire arch of teeth using four implant locations. When you get All-on-4 dentures, you’re investing in a natural-looking and secure-feeling smile. Also, since you only need four implants, the process is quick and easy.
With All-on-4 dentures, you’ll feel and look younger, regaining your confidence along the way. Since dental implants help structure your jaw, All-on-4 diminishes sagging and sunken jaws as well. Additionally, your beautiful new tooth replacements will take years off your smile.
In addition to looking younger, you’ll feel more comfortable with All-on-4 dental implants. Losing teeth over time is normal, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have comfortable, natural tooth replacements. When you get All-on-4 implants, you can eat, sleep, talk, and laugh just like you would with natural teeth. Another bonus is that your bone structure remains intact with All-on-4.
With missing teeth or traditional dentures, your jaw will experience bone loss over time. This adds to an older, sunken appearance. However, with All-on-4, you can restore your young looks and keep them for years to come. Plus, you can replace your entire set of missing teeth, usually in just one day with only one surgery. And, remember, the procedure restores your entire set of teeth with only four implants.
You will need to have a high volume and density of jawbone available to hold the implants in place. You should also be in good general health. Some chronic conditions including but not limited to diabetes and cardiovascular disease may be disqualifying.
First, we’ll insert four titanium screws into your jaw. In time, your jaw will grow to accept these replacement roots just like natural dental roots. Next, we’ll attach permanent dentures to each of these anchors. These anchor teeth root the rest of your replacement teeth to your jawline and ensure a stable fit.
Partnering with the right dental practice is the most important decision you will make in maximizing the benefits of your All-on-4 implant procedure. Insist on a licensed dentist who is also a dental implant expert.
All-on-4 implants are sophisticated and complex devices that must be carefully customized to ensure an accurate fit. When you visit us for All-on-4 dentures, your first step is a consultation with Dr. Martirossian. During this process, you’ll meet with your dental team to discuss your options. We’ll also examine your smile during this visit and learn about your dental history. If you decide that All-on-4 is right for you, we’ll start your treatment.
Some short-term bleeding and bruising is to be expected. Over-the-counter pain relievers typically suffice, but pain medication can be prescribed as appropriate. Avoid alcohol and tobacco, either or both of which can slow the healing process.
Patients usually can resume eating later the same day of surgery, but start with soft food. Avoid hard and/or crunchy food and stay away from seeds and grains for a while. For full dental implants, complete recovery usually takes several months. However, since this treatment method only utilizes four implant locations, your jaw will heal much quicker than following other implant procedures and techniques.
All-on-4 dental implants last a lifetime if you clean them properly. Unlike traditional dentures, you don’t have to remove your dentures to clean them. In fact, you can clean your dental implants by just keeping good oral hygiene.
To keep good oral hygiene, make sure you brush your new teeth twice a day. When you eat sugary or sticky foods, you might want to brush your teeth after your meal. Additionally, floss daily to remove any other sticky residue. Furthermore, ensure that your dental implants stay beautiful by visiting your dentist every six months for routine cleanings.
The cost of your implants will depend on various factors, including the type of artificial tooth material you choose and the number of teeth you need. Have a full and open conversation with your dentist about costs during your consultation.
Dental implants are a secure, comfortable tooth replacement option. When you get dental implants, we can ensure you that your dentures won’t slide around or fall out. Additionally, you can eat your favorite foods with natural-feeling tooth replacements. Instead of getting implants for each tooth, however, All-on-4 allows you to recreate a full arch with just four implant dentures.
