No Bone Grafting Required
All-on-4 dental implants eliminate the need for bone grafting by leveraging advanced imaging technology and a broad range of implant sizes, shapes, and lengths. This technique locates and utilizes existing bone that is strong enough to provide instantly secure implants. This enables us to give you a full set of teeth after just a single oral surgery session.
Bypassing the Need for Grafting
Conventional implant dentures face limitations when it comes to anchoring new teeth to your jaw, especially if the existing bone is thin or weak. For standard dental implants, bone grafting is often necessary. That is especially true when a patient has waited a long time to repair missing teeth, or has worn a conventional denture for an extended period.
All-on-4 implants, with their multitude of designs, were specifically developed to overcome this challenge. For example, even when a jawbone lacks depth, most individuals still have an ample amount of horizontal bone. Long, slender implants with specially angled abutments utilize this bone to offer a solid foundation for a denture. Employing All-on-4 techniques, the Placerville Dentistry Group assists patients who were turned away by other dentists.
Instant Denture Application
Thanks to the All-on-4 process, dental implants can be immediately secure. Gum tissues and bone naturally become inflamed and swell after the drilling and installation procedure, so time for healing is still needed. Therefore, our Placerville dentist provides a sturdy temporary denture to wear during the four-to-ten-month healing period. Once your gums and bone settle around the new implants, a permanent denture that matches your new jawline is created and attached.
Permanent, Fixed Teeth
It is essential to note that All-on-4 offers a fixed denture, not removable snap-on dentures. With All-on-4, there is no need to place your teeth in a glass of water overnight; your new teeth remain with you day and night, just like your original ones.
