What to Expect from All-on-four Teeth in a Day Implants
Losing all your teeth can be devastating, to say the least. Fortunately, you don’t have to stay in that state for long as your Chicago, Illinois dentist can restore your smile quickly with all-on-four dental implants. Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth or an entire arch of teeth to meet your dental needs. At A Brush Above Family Dentistry, you can regain your healthy, stable smile through all-on-four teeth in a day implant treatment.
The All-on-four Implant Process
Upon your initial visit to our Chicago clinic, Dr. Marcella Guzman will evaluate your situation to see if you’re a good candidate for the all-on-four dental implant procedure. If so, we’ll outline a plan for your treatment.
All-on-four dental implants entail placing four implants in strategic locations in your mouth, top and bottom, where your bone structure is thickest, so they can provide a firm foundation for your prosthetic teeth. Over the next few months, these implants will integrate into your bone system to act as your new tooth roots.
We’ll attach provisional prosthetics to your implants for your use in the meantime. After your implants have healed, we’ll remove these temporary prosthetics and place the custom-designed permanent dentures that look and function like natural teeth.
What to Expect from All-on-four Implant Treatment
With all-on-four implants, you can walk out of our clinic with new teeth and implants on the same day, putting you one step closer to restoring your oral health. Your temporary teeth won’t be as strong as the permanent ones you’ll receive after your implants have healed. Therefore, you’ll have to watch what you eat during the interim period. Additional benefits of this procedure include the following:
• Bone grafts aren’t usually needed, which can help expedite your treatment
• It only takes one surgery to complete your treatment (Traditional implants may require two)
• Less costly than traditional implant treatments
