Introduction to All-on-4 Dental Implants

One of the first things people recognize in others is their smile. Sometimes though, life or the effects of aging can affect the ability to possess the smile that one can be proud to share. At Drill Bar Dental in Boca Raton, we strive to give all of our patients the 5-star smile that they deserve.

If you are struggling with missing or decaying teeth, or currently have dentures that you’re not satisfied with, an All-on-4 Dental Implant just might be the perfect solution for you! Finally, you can have that natural-looking smile at an affordable rate.

What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 Dental Implants (a.k.a. Ao4) is a surgical procedure that is designed to replace both the upper and lower arches of your teeth using a hybrid denture mounted on 4 implanted rods. Since the implant is a complete arch and requires minimal implants, it has a faster recovery time than receiving multiple single implants and is easier to maintain.

Who are the Best Candidates for All-on-4 Dental Implants?

The best candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants in Boca Raton is anyone who is missing their teeth on an arch or whose teeth are damaged beyond repair. It is also a useful method for patients who have experienced bone loss. The design allows even a small amount of bone to support the restoration.

What’s the First Step

The first step to getting your All-on-4 Implants in Boca Raton is to contact our office and schedule your consultation. During this appointment, our highly trained staff will assess your teeth and devise the best treatment plan for you. X-rays will be performed to give a realistic view of your current oral situation, as well as to ensure the optimal placements for your new implants.

Although every patient’s experience is customized to their needs, a tooth or teeth extraction appointment may be required before you can receive your dental implants. Once your extraction is completed, a dental impression will be taken to ensure your denture is ready as soon as the rods are implanted.

What to Expect on the Day of All-on-4 Implants?

On the day of your All-on-4 Implant surgery, you will be administered local anesthesia. Next, two dental implants will be mounted near the front of your mouth, and two in the back at a 45° angle. This placement provides the proper stability to install an entire fixed arch. When this is performed, it prevents the need for additional procedures, such as bone grafting.

Depending on the condition of your mouth, your denture can be fitted on the same day. If your dentist does not believe your mouth is ready, you will be able to return home with the implants and a temporary denture. In this case, the final prosthesis is typically mounted three to six months later once your mouth has healed.

All-on-4 Implant Recovery

You will be able to return home the same day as your procedure, with most patients being able to return to work after a few days, or possibly up until a week. It may take about 8 months to experience a full recovery, however, most patients have seen a faster recovery period.

You will probably experience some gum tenderness, swelling, oozing, and bleeding from the implant areas, yet this is completely normal. If you have any concerns during your recovery, please contact our office so that we can help you in any way that we can.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Frequently Asked Questions

How long do All-on-4 Implants last?

If you take proper care of your All-on-4 Implants, the prosthesis should last between 10 and 15 years. You should have your teeth cleaned regularly by a professional, who will also be able to remove the prosthesis for easier cleaning outside of your mouth.

The implanted rods are a life-long solution, so unless something goes wrong, you should never have to have them replaced.

Are All-on-4 Implants painful?

The surgery itself should not be painful as you will be placed under a local anesthetic. Some patients may experience some soreness in the following days of their recovery, but this can be eased with over-the-counter pain medication, soft foods, and ice packs if needed.

How do I clean my All-on-4 Dental Implants?

You can brush your hybrid dentures the same way you would clean your natural teeth; this should be performed after every meal, or at least twice a day to ensure longevity. We recommend a soft-bristled brush (manual or electric) and use circular movements all around your teeth and the prosthesis. We also recommend you have a normal flossing or water-pick routine.

You should also maintain regular dental check-ups for best results.

Do All-on-4 Dental Implants look real?

Yes! Our team considers your prosthesis to be a work of art, so we pride ourselves on giving you the most authentic-looking teeth possible.
