All-on-4 Dental Implants in Garden Valley, CA

If any dentist has ever stated that you’re not a good candidate for implants or a full mouth reconstruction, then the All-on-4® aligner technology is particularly designed for you! A serious catch experienced by many men and women is that they have no teeth or very poor teeth due to bone loss. The only way you can affix dental implants is with a lot of solid jawbone! Now the Placerville Dental Group gives you an established resolution to this problem.

Why Use All-on-4®?

All-on-4® offers a variety of benefits not provided with standard implant therapy. For instance, All-on-4® is:

  • Higher Standard — The dental implants used with All-on-4® are specifically developed for patients with minimal bone.
  • Lower Cost — 50% of the cost for implants comes from the requirement for jawbone grafts. Eliminating jawbone grafts while safely relying on remaining bone decreases cost.
  • Less Time — Bone grafts must mend and solidify before implant procedures can start, extending the time from start to finish. With All-on-4®, no jawbone grafts are needed.
  • Improved Esthetics — Most clients are ready to depart our office with their initial set of “healing dentures” on the same day we attach their implants.

Using All-on-4® lets more men and women benefit from the life-changing improvements of dental implants. And to give more confidence, the entire All-on-4® line of products is produced by Nobel Biocare, a Scandinavian company that was the first to market dental implants for use around the globe.

The All-on-4® Procedure

Your First All-on-4® Consult

Initially, we desire to understand what your plans are for a full mouth rehabilitation. Are you content with your upper or lower jaw and just need to change one arch? Do both arches need modification? Do you have any behavioral, physical, or medical issues that affect the decisions we make to create the most anxiety free possible outcome? Do you want permanently fixed artificial teeth or “snap-in” artificial teeth that are detachable for brushing your teeth?

Deciding on Implant Installation

Once your plans have been determined, the next step is to determine the application of your implants. The system of affixing dental implants requires a considerable deal of precision. To assist with this, x-rays and scans are obtained to reveal the crucial jawbone profile that we apply to attach your implants. Based on the remaining bone, we elect the form of All-on-4® procedure needed and the implants recommended to ensure success.

The All-on-4® Implant Treatment

Digital studies about your bone structure, gumline, and jaw are used to create guides that assist the dentist to place the implants exactly. Certain tooth extractions may be required, and revisions may be completed to your gumline for cosmetic reasons. The dental implants are all installed at the same time. For the majority of clients, after verifying the sturdiness of the implants’ attachment to the bone, temporary “healing dentures” are screwed in place on the implants, so you can leave our dental practice with a full set of teeth on the same day as your treatment.

Completing Your Procedure

Two to three months later, when the dental implants have fused with your jawbone, we apply the long-term dentures and your All-on-4® treatment is over. You depart with a fully practical set of teeth that rebuild your ability to speak, sing, eat, and live the manner in which you want!
