To better understand All-on-4 implants, it’s best to first understand what a dental implant is. A dental implant is a small titanium post that your dentist surgically inserts into your jawbone to support replacement teeth.
All-on-4 is an innovative solution to replace sets of missing lower or upper teeth with as few as four implants per arch. What’s more, the entire procedure takes just one day. You can walk into your procedure with many missing teeth and walk out with a set of healthy, high-functioning prosthetic teeth.
If you’ve lost teeth or need to replace decaying teeth that are beyond saving, All-on-4 implants may be right for you. There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by coming and having a thorough consultation with Dr. Pizer at Hudson Dental Arts.
At Hudson Dental Arts, Dr. Pizer first meets with you to discuss your teeth replacement goals and to review your medical and dental history. Then, he performs a thorough evaluation, which includes digital scans of your jaw, teeth, and gums. During this consultation, he’ll also answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
The procedure is performed at the practice’s other location, Coxsackie Dental Arts in West Coxsackie, New York. The surgery is minimally invasive and takes place in just one day. During the procedure, your dentist uses a special dental drill to place titanium posts directly into your jawbone. Then they attach sets of high-quality replacement teeth to the implants.
You can use your new teeth right away, but typically you’ll want to wait at least a few days before chewing on hard foods.
Implants often need months to heal and fully fuse to your jawbone before being able to support replacement teeth. Unlike traditional dental implant technology, with All-on-4 implants, you can leave the office the same day as your procedure with a complete set of new, healthy-looking teeth.
Using All-on-4 implants to replace missing teeth helps address oral health problems that gaps pose, such as bone loss and an increased risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Getting All-on-4 implants can also combat facial drooping, which can take place when your jawbone no longer has a full set of teeth. All-on-4 implants can improve your facial structure and fill out lost facial volume.
