New Teeth in One Day with the All-on-4 Implant Solution
At North Andover Dental Partners, our dentists are renowned for their expertise in transforming smiles. They specialize in the innovative all-on-4 implant supported denture solution, a technique that allows patients to receive a completely new smile in just one visit.
This procedure has been revolutionary for individuals grappling with the challenges of missing teeth or the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures. For many, the prospect of new teeth in one day has transformed not just their smiles but their overall quality of life.
Implant-supported dentures offer significant advantages over traditional dentures. Traditional dentures are often associated with slipping, difficulty in eating, and speech impediments, which can significantly hinder daily activities and self-confidence. The stability and security provided by four or more implant-supported dentures eliminates these issues, allowing you to eat a wider variety of foods, speak more clearly, and smile with confidence. This solution closely mimics natural teeth in both function and appearance.
Why Choose All-on-4?
- Speed and Convenience: The most remarkable advantage is the rapid turnaround. Traditionally, dentists often wait several months for the dental implants to heal and integrate into the bone before placing a restoration. However, with the all-on-4 solution, patients can walk out of the dental office with an aesthetically pleasing set of teeth in just one day.
- Stability and Comfort: The four or more implants provide a secure anchor for the dentures, offering more stability and comfort than traditional removable dentures. The dentures are also less bulky since they no longer need a wide profile in order to be supported by the gums.
- Bone Preservation: When a tooth or teeth are lost, the body starts absorbing the jaw bone into the body in a “use-it-or-lose-it” process known as resorption. Implants help maintain jawbone integrity by stimulating the bone, signaling to the body that it’s still being used, preventing the bone loss that often occurs with traditional dentures.
- Improved Oral Health: Unlike traditional dentures, which can lead to gum sores and other oral issues, implant-supported dentures promote better overall oral health.
New Teeth in One Day Procedure: What to Expect
- Consultation and Planning: The first step involves a thorough dental examination with one of our dentists, including X-rays or CT scans, to plan the implant placement and determine if the patient is a candidate for the implant procedure.
- Implant Surgery: Under anesthesia, the dentist will surgically place four or more implants in the jaw.
- Immediate Loading: On the same day, a temporary set of teeth is attached to these implants. This ensures the patient walks out of the dental office with a new set of teeth in one day.
- Healing and Fabrication of Permanent Denture: Over the next few months, the implants integrate with the jawbone. Meanwhile, the final, customized denture is fabricated out of a strong material that can withstand the rigors of daily chewing.
- Final Fitting: Once healing is complete, the permanent denture is fitted, ensuring a comfortable and natural-looking smile.
