All-ON-4 Dental Implants Procedure Can Provide Immediate Teeth for Eligible Patients
One major advantage of All-ON-4 Dental Implants surgery is that there is no need for bone grafting. Placing the implants in allows us to control the process of bone loss which occurs when teeth are taken out. This drawing illustrates bone loss that occurs once the remaining teeth are extracted.
The All-On-4 dental implants technique can provide immediate upper or lower dental restoration to a patient after surgery, which is a concept commonly referred to as Teeth in a Day. This procedure cannot be done if extensive bone grafting is necessary.
The photos illustrate our patient a day after dental implant surgery. No swelling and no pain. This is the truth-in-fact about the All-On-4 dental implants procedure. Because there is no bone grafting and our technique is minimally invasive, patients return to function quickly without downtime. We chose a removable upper over-denture that is firm and solid on the top. It doesn’t move with chewing even steak or “thit bo kho” (beef jerky). The attachments are very special and lock the denture on.
At Westcoast, we checked and rechecked with our dental technician team in order to proceed with completion. All fittings are verified to be 100% accurate.
Lip profile, the smile line, the amount of pink gum to show and other important criteria are on a check list of what we evaluate to be the most esthetically pleasing with our Westcoast Smile Design process.
For the lower, we did a full bridge of zirconium also known as a “Prettau bridge” which is remarkable and should never “chip” or break.
