The All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure

All On 4 Dental Implant Procedure Wayland Coopersville MI DentistsInterested in replacing your teeth, but want to avoid wearing dentures? Schedule an appointment with one of our dental implant dentists in Coopersville and Wayland, MI. They’ll be able to determine if you’re a candidate for the all-on-4 dental implant procedure.

Here’s what you can expect during the process.

Consultation

First, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with one of our dental implant dentists. In general, you may be a candidate for the all-on-four dental implant procedure if you have significant tooth loss in the upper or lower arch. All-on-four implants are used to replace an entire arch of teeth so you can smile with confidence and continue eating your favorite foods.

To be a candidate for any type of dental implants, you’ll also need sufficient bone density in the jaw. That way, there’s enough support for the dental implants during osseointegration. If you don’t have enough bone density, our dental implant dentists may recommend a bone graft to supplement the tissue you already have.

Please keep in mind that every patient is different. To discover if you’re a candidate for all-on-4 implants, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with one of our dental implant dentists. From there, our dentists will be able to help you explore your tooth replacement options.

All-on-4 Dental Implant Surgery

During the all-on-4 implant surgery, we’ll surgically insert four posts made out of titanium alloy through the gums and into the jawbone. These titanium posts then act as anchors for the permanent denture we’ll place later.

One of the main benefits of all-on-four dental implants is that you’re able to replace an entire arch of teeth in one appointment. This means that you won’t have to experience any embarrassment over missing teeth. Instead, you’ll be able to enjoy all-on-four dental implants that look and feel like your own natural teeth.

Recovery and Aftercare

Our dental implant dentists will give you specific instructions to follow after your all-on-four implant procedure. That way, you’ll be giving your body every opportunity to heal and recover.

It typically takes a few months to fully recover from the all-on-four dental implant procedure. During this time, the implants fuse completely to the jawbone to provide the ultimate stability while you eat, chew, smile, and laugh.

Once you’ve healed from dental implant surgery and no longer have to follow special instructions from our dentists, you’ll be able to care for your all-on-four dental implants like natural teeth. This involves brushing them twice a day and flossing once a day to avoid plaque and tartar buildup. Also, continue seeing our dental implant dentists for preventive care.
