All-on-4 dental implants are used to replace an entire upper or lower row of teeth. Using four implants, Dr. Carley can give you the smile of your dreams without having to place individual implants for each missing tooth. With this strategic approach to tooth replacement, All-on-4 can give you a natural feeling and functioning smile that will be both healthy and beautiful. Long lasting, durable, and easy-to-maintain, All-on-4 implants is a great option for many patients who are tired of missing multiple teeth in their smile.
Process Of All-On-4 Dental Implants
The process of All-on-4 dental implants is similar to receiving regular dental implants. There is an initial surgery, a healing period and then your arch can be installed to replace your missing teeth. The procedures steps include:
An initial exam by Dr. Carley: Dr. Carley will perform a thorough examination to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure and that’s it is the right choice for you. In some cases, supplemental procedures may be needed.
The Implant Procedure: After our Santa Barbara dentist has determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, your implant placement surgery can be performed. During the procedure, four implants are strategically placed to best support a partial or full arch restoration.
The Healing Process: After your implants are complete, you will be sent home to heal. The healing process takes a couple of months and varies by patient. During this recovery period, osseointegration will fuse the jawbone to the implant, creating a strong foundation for your future restoration.
Getting your New Teeth: The day is finally here! After your implants have healed Dr. Carley will attach your arch replacement to the anchor. These teeth will look and function just like natural teeth, restoring normal function. Smile with confidence, you’ll great with your new smile!
