Would you like a new set of permanent teeth? Would you like to get them in as little as one day? It’s possible with the All-on-Four procedure by Nobel Biocare.
Using four dental implants, the All-on-Four procedure fixes an entire set of new, permanent teeth in place. These teeth function just as natural teeth do. You can also eat a wide variety of foods with them, even apples.
All-on-Four works by inserting four titanium implants into the gums and jawbone. They are placed so that the bone will grow around them and ensure their permanent placement. The implants serve to anchor an entire set of prosthetic teeth, a denture, which Dr. Sohl will attach to fit comfortably and securely. The implants in the back of the mouth are also angled to utilize all existing bone, making All-on-Four an effective option for both upper and lower teeth.
All-on-Four utilizes the fewest number of implants possible for a set of replacement teeth, and the procedure can be completed in a single visit. There is also no need for bone grafts, and the procedure is far less invasive than other full-mouth restorations. Just imagine walking away with a new smile after a single dental visit.
The traditional route to a full restoration was a lengthy process featuring multiple dental visits that spanned months, or even years. These procedures were very costly, leaving some people to choose dentures, even with their messy pastes and imperfect fits. However, because All-on-Four features less invasive work and fewer hours in the chair, it is an affordable option that can significantly improve quality of life for denture patients.
The entire process of an All-on-Four restoration takes two to three visits. While the procedure takes only one visit, a consultation that involves taking photos, x-rays, and impressions is necessary to allow the oral surgeon to prepare a treatment plan. Once the plan is completed, the actual procedure takes a single visit, and all that remains are follow-up visits to ensure that the implants fuse correctly to the jawbone. After about six months, Dr. Sohl will fit a new set of permanent teeth to the implants for a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
