03 Oct 4 of the Most Common Questions About All-On-4 Teeth
Are you considering All-On-4 or Teeth In A Day to restore your smile after tooth loss? You likely have questions about All-on-4 works, along with the benefits and risks. You’re not alone. Here are answers to four of the most common questions about All-On-4 teeth restoration.
1. Are All-On-4 Dental Implants Right for Me?
If you need dental restoration for an entire upper or lower set of teeth, All-on-4 dental implants are a good option for you. With only four implants, Dr. Miller at Central Oklahoma Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates can restore your beautiful smile.
Like with all dental implants, we’ll first want to make sure you haven’t experienced too much bone loss. Fortunately, the location of the All-On-4 implants means that most patients qualify for the procedure.
2. How Long Will it Take to Get All-On-4?
All-On-4 dental implants are also called Teeth in a Day. And it only takes one appointment for your All-on-4 procedure. The entire process takes a couple of hours, and we create your appliance on-site during your appointment with our 3D printing technology. You’ll be able to leave the office with a full-restored smile.
3. What Are the Benefits of All-On-4?
There are many reasons why patients prefer All-On-4, or Teeth in a Day, over traditional bridges or dentures.
Dental implants help preserve the structure of your jaw and prevent changes to the structure of your face that can occur after you lose your natural teeth. They are also a permanent restoration that functions like natural teeth, allowing you to chew food effectively and smile with confidence.
They are easy to care for, and you’ll be pleased that they look and feel like natural teeth. Additionally, they can last for decades with proper care and oral hygiene.
4. How Long is Recovery for Teeth In A Day?
During your Teeth in a Day procedure, our dental professionals will make four incisions in your gums and make room in your jaw to insert the dental implants before stitching the incision sites closed. You may feel some discomfort, pain, and swelling after your surgery. And you should make plans to stay home from school or work for a few days for a full recovery.
However, your pain should be very minimal after a few days, and we can usually recommend ice packs or over-the-counter pain relievers to help with any soreness.
