01 Jan All-On-Four Provides Dentures Without Grafting
When you lose most or all of your teeth and don’t seek treatment right away, this means your jawbone gradually breaks down. As a result, you could be unable to receive implant dentures without first undergoing a grafting procedure. However, with our helpful team of prosthodontic experts in Oklahoma City, OK, we can secure All-On-Four implant dentures in one visit without the need for grafting!
The Loss of Jawbone Density
Losing our natural teeth can have major consequences for the health and appearance of our smile. Obviously, there are gaps left behind that complicate how we eat and speak, and change our appearance. But the body will also see the missing root and in response, will suspend the flow of calcium and phosphates to the jaw, which means the bone tissue breaks down and causes further tooth loss or even an older appearance. This means you may not have enough structure to support dental implants without first undergoing surgical procedures like grafting or a sinus lift to make placement possible. But with All-On-Four, we can offer a new smile, in one visit without the need for these surgical procedures!
Planning Your Treatment
To get started, we will carefully examine your smile with digital x-rays and other advanced imaging systems, which enables us to plan the placement of your new dental implants. We choose the exact position and angles that best support new dentures, and we will surgically insert these biocompatible implant posts into the jaw. Once there, they bond with the bone tissue through a process known as osseointegration, which makes them act as new roots. Your new roots can last for decades to come!
All-On-Four Implant Prosthetics
In the same visit, we will connect abutments to the posts and attach a denture to them, so you leave with a complete smile. You will then return to the office later when your final denture is ready, and we will swap them. At no point are you left with an incomplete smile. The process requires fewer implant posts and offers new teeth in a day. If you have any questions about how we plan and place All-On-Four dentures, or if you’re ready for a fixed smile that looks and functions like a natural one, then reach out to our team today. In 2024, let us rebuild your smile so you can enjoy results that look natural, and don’t need to be removed for maintenance.
