All-On-4 Dental Implants Could Be the Answer
|June 3, 2016
All-On-4 Dental Implants have certainly changed tooth replacement. All-On-4 Dental Implants enable Floss Dental to place a minimum number of dental implants in order to support more teeth. That literally means that just four implants are used to support full arches in both the lower and upper jaw. If that doesn’t sound amazing enough, the Dental Implants system can be completed in just one day.
When you schedule an appointment with Floss Dental for All-On-4 Dental Implants your teeth and gums will be examined while the team members take records of any existing conditions. After your examination, Floss Dental will take CT scans and 3D pictures of your jawbone. This will include the positioning of your teeth that will be replaced. The scans and pictures will give Floss Dental the information needed regarding nerves, sinuses, and bone.
During the planning stages of your All-On-4 Dental Implants, Floss Dental will use computer simulation to position the Dental Implants into the right locations for optimum support. This will also allow a surgical template to be fabricated.
Surgery can be done at the same time including the removal of any teeth that need to be extracted, the shaping of your bone, and the placement of the All-On-4 Dental Implants.
In order for your bone to heal properly Floss Dental will place temporary teeth attaching them directly to the All-On-4 Dental Implants. Once you have healed, your temporary teeth will be removed.
During the healing, your temporaries will stay in place for about three months. During that time, Floss Dental recommends that you avoid hard and tough foods and stick to soft and easy to chew foods. Most patients have very little discomfort after the surgery and function well with the All-On-4 Dental Implants temporary teeth.
Once your Dental Implants have healed, with a process known as Osseo-integration, your dentist will replace your temporary teeth with permanent teeth that are made from materials that are just as strong as your natural teeth.
