All-on-4 Dental Implants in Ione, CA

Romantic couple smiling and cuddling on a sunny dayAll-on-4® is a complete procedure specifically engineered for clients without enough jawbone for standard dental implants. Before, if a client had no sufficient jawbone remaining for implants, they only had two choices: routine dentures or a jawbone graft procedure. All-on-4® includes the alternative for implants without needing a jawbone graft.

The All-on-4® Resolution

All-on-4® provides a number of benefits not found with conventional implant procedures. For example, All-on-4® is:

  • Heightened Standard — The dental implants used with All-on-4® are specifically designed for patients with minimal jawbone.
  • Lower Cost — Half of the price for dental implants comes from the demand for jawbone grafts. Eliminating bone grafts while securely depending on existing bone reduces cost.
  • Minimal Time — Bone grafts must mend and solidify before implant dental treatments can begin, extending the time from beginning to end. With All-on-4®, no jawbone grafts are needed.
  • Improved Attractiveness — Most customers are prepared to depart our office with their initial set of “healing dentures” on the same day we attach their dental implants.

Using All-on-4® lets more adults take advantage of the life-adjusting advantages of dental implants. And to give more trust, the entire All-on-4® line of products is made by Nobel Biocare, a Scandinavian company that was the first to offer dental implants for use around the globe.

The All-on-4® Procedure

Your First All-on-4® Consultation

Only four implants are needed to replace the teeth on the upper and lower curve of the jawbone, therefore the name All-on-4®. During your first consult for All-on-4®, our Ione dentist explores your goals. For example, do you desire permanently attached artificial teeth, or the sort that snap-on and off the dental implants? What appearance and color would you need for the teeth? What is your dental background and how will it affect your treatment? Are you attaching All-on-4® for both the lower and upper arch, or just one?

Where to Install Your Dental Implants?

After deciding on your goals, we then progress to the question of where to establish your implants. Placing implants is exact work. Our dentist needs to know how much jawbone you have and where the bones are strongest. The length and location of the dental implants are decided on by taking x-rays and scans of the mouth and the surrounding bone structure. All-on-4® provides different sizes of dental implants and designs of dental prosthetics based on your custom requirements.

The All-on-4® Dental Implant Treatment

We also look at your smile. Complete contentment is our focus, and that means building a capable dental implant that works correctly and looks impressive to you and others! Based on the structure of your lower and upper jaws, the way you smile, and the appropriate length of your gums and teeth, some cosmetic modifications on your gums may be needed during the treatment.

Installing the dental implants

After completing the planning step, we bring you back to the office for the placement of your dental implants. Any cosmetic changes to the gums are also done at this time. The dental implants are tested at the time of placement. If they can withstand the anticipated forces from chewing, we affix a set of “healing dentures” on the implants. These are attached, transitional dentures that reduce the forces placed on your implants.

Placing the Dental Implants

After a mending period of 2-3 months, the implants have integrated with your jawbone and can handle the forces generated by chewing with standard dentures. Throughout that time, your tailor-made dentures were created aligning with your specifications. After you return, we detach the recovery dentures and install the permanent dentures. If they are the detachable form, we make sure you can remove them easily before leaving our office.

With your brand-new, complete group of teeth, you can return to enjoying the meals you like, to talking normally, to singing, and to smiling with confidence! The implants reinforce your jaw and maintain the remaining bone. Your self-esteem and appearance improve, and an essential aspect of your life appears comfortable again!
