Permanent Teeth for Natural Look and Function
What Is All-On-4?
Patients who choose to complete All-on-4 treatment will meet with us one or more times during the planning process to ensure that the teeth they get on the day of the procedure are as satisfactory as possible. So there is more than one appointment involved, which some patients who have seen All-on-4 advertising are not aware of. That being said, All-on-4 treatment can be particularly attractive to patients who want to minimize the number of visits to the dentist. Extractions of teeth that have gone bad can happen on the same day as the placement of the implants & the full set of teeth. You can come into the office with bad, damaged teeth & leave at the end of the day with a perfect smile. In addition to the health benefits of this transformation, the psychological & emotional impact that it can have is profound.
After you get your new set of teeth with All-on-4, you will still need to come to the dentist for regular checkups. There is a misconception among some patients that only natural teeth need regular professional dental care. This is far from the truth. Whether or not you have natural teeth or All-on-4, the dentist looks after your overall oral health. This especially includes assessing the health of your gums, which is vital to ensuring your implants last you for the rest of your life. It’s still possible to get gum disease if all your teeth have been replaced with false teeth! At each of your checkups after All-on-4, we’ll take a look at your teeth, examine your bite, & make sure your dental hygiene routine is working well.
