It used to be that when you were faced with the decision of getting dental implants, you knew you were about to embark on a costly and time-consuming route.
After all, many patients who need implant-supported dentures suffer from extensive bone loss, and must undergo bone grafting before the implants can be placed – a procedure that can take more than a year.
However, with recent advances in technology, there is a new technique available that allows dentists to place your implants in just one day, and for you to walk out with a brand-new, functional smile.
The All-on-Four Technique
The All-on-Four Technique is a revolutionary dental implant procedure that uses just four implants to place a full set of teeth on the arch. One of our implant specialists, was a pioneer in developing this technique, which provides an efficient, long-lasting solution to missing teeth.
Using wax-study models and 3D imaging, we are able to get a full view of your mouth. These models and images are used to determine where to place the implants so they can be angled to utilize the available bone in your mouth.
It takes as little as four hours to place the implants and fit the dentures over them, which means that you can in fact walk out the same day you come in with a brand-new smile!
The procedure is covered by most dental insurance companies, so if you’re looking for an alternative to conventional dentures, this could be exactly what you need.
