01 Jul We Offer A Solution For Total Tooth Loss
Have you lost all of your teeth, or possibly the vast majority of them? Then you need a prosthetic to return function to your smile, and to improve your smile’s appearance as well. With the All-On-4 system, we can accomplish this in only one visit! At your Oklahoma City, OK, dental office, a full smile is possible in a single visit.
What Happens When You Lose Most of Your Smile
We urge people with tooth loss, even if years have elapsed since they lost their teeth, to talk to our team about tooth replacement. Missing teeth can impact your appearance and even make you feel self-conscious, so you avoid social situations. Eating can be complicated too, limiting your meal options and denying you essential nutrients. Speaking clearly could be problematic, and as the body suspends the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jaw around the missing root, you could develop a prematurely aged appearance as your jaw breaks down. But with the placement of dental implant dentures, you can restore function and beauty to your smile, and also preserve your jawbone, even stimulating the growth of structure. With All-On-4, we can do this in only one visit.
Planning Replacement in One Visit
All-On-4 provides teeth in a day, which means no waiting period for weeks or months in between the placement of the dental implants and the attachment of the denture portion. To begin this process, our team will carefully examine your smile to assess the extent of your tooth loss. We may need to conduct an extraction for the last few teeth, and we will choose the best areas and positions to insert the four dental implant posts. When the time comes for the procedure, we will provide a local anesthetic and sedation to ensure the process is a comfortable one for you.
The All-On-4 System
As the name implies, this process supports a complete set of dentures with only four dental implant posts. Which means even if you’ve lost jawbone mass and density, we can still support implants without the need for grafting or sinus lifts beforehand. After we ensure you’re comfortable, we will insert the four posts in each arch at specific angles. We then attach abutments to them that extend above the gum line. Once the abutments are in place, we connect your complete denture. In a single visit, you have obtained a full and beautiful smile, and once it heals, you will be able to enjoy your favorite meals again.
