permanent dentures with all on 4If you’ve replaced your missing teeth with removable false teeth, you likely know about the inconveniences and disadvantages associated with them. From partial and complete dentures to removable bridges, these types of false teeth can be more of a hassle and more expensive than they’re worth.

Fortunately, the revolutionary All-on-4 procedure gives you permanent dentures as an alternative to removable false teeth. You’ll get a natural-looking, confident smile that is built to last!

Disadvantages of Removable Teeth

The most common types of removable false teeth are dentures. They can be complete or partial, conventional or immediate, but all have their disadvantages.

For starters, they can shift or fit improperly, which causes embarrassment and other problems when eating or speaking. Secondly, they don’t stimulate bone properly, which causes a sunk-in look over time. There are also other disadvantages related to cleaning or maintaining them.

Bridges are another common type of removable false teeth. They also don’t stimulate bone in the gap they cover, which can cause teeth to shift and become misaligned. These also have the potential to fall out or shift and don’t have the benefits of permanent teeth solutions like All-on-4 permanent dentures.

With All-on-4 Forever Teeth, you will never need removable false teeth ever again. A long-lasting a cost-effective alternative, All-on-4 is a permanent set of teeth secured by four titanium dental implants (which have a 95% success rate).

Permanent Dentures With All-on-Four Procedure

Consultation and 3D scan

Same Day Teeth with All-on-FourDr. Miller and Dr. Henriod will meet with you to discuss your goals for your mouth, review your dental and medical history and do an oral exam. We’ll also do a 3D scan of your jaw, teeth and gums using our 3D cone beam CT scanner, a state-of-the-art 3D imaging system. With the CT scanner we can see in full 360º view all these structures and are able to do a full evaluation.

We explain the treatment and answer any questions.

Preparation of your temporary teeth

Same Day Teeth with All-on-Four

Our state-of-the-art cone beam scanner takes 3D images of the entire mouth, teeth and bone of the lower face.

As your dental implants will need time to heal before placing your permanent new teeth, you will be given temporary dentures the day of the implant surgery. Together with our partner general dentist or prosthodontist (specialist in tooth restoration), or your own dentist, we prepare your temporary dentures. These are fully functional and are immediately usable.

Screw-retained temporary teeth are stronger, but snap-in can be better for some patients as they can be taken out at night, which prevents patients who clench or grind during the night from damaging their still-healing implants. Temporary snap-in teeth also reduce the cost.

Preparing for the surgery

Once you have had 3D X-rays taken, one of our doctors will plan your treatment digitally.

We use the 3D scans and plaster study models to prepare for your surgery. We plan ahead of time the exact location and angle of the implant needed to take advantage of the bone available. This means we don’t have to do any bone grafting in the majority of the cases.

We make a surgical guide to help guide the implant into position with minimal impact on the gum and bone, making the procedure minimally invasive, and your post-treatment discomfort minimal.

Minimally-invasive surgery

Due to the thorough pre-planning and the use of the surgical guide, your implant surgery is a relatively fast procedure requiring no extra cutting or suturing. We can usually put only four implants on the bottom arch, and four to six on the top arch. How many we put in depends upon the density of the bone and how much bone is available.

If we need to extract any teeth, this is done in the same visit. As the procedure is lengthy, patients can opt to have oral or IV sedation for full relaxation.

We place your temporary dentures on the implants so you have fully functional teeth when you leave.

Permanent replacement teeth

About 10 weeks later we can place your permanent, high-grade teeth, aesthetically designed and fitted just for you. We adjust them as needed so that you have a fully aligned bite (how the teeth come together).

We do several bite adjustments over the upcoming weeks until your bite alignment is just right. This is an essential part of the procedure, as a misaligned bite can cause damage to your new teeth and make for uncomfortable chewing and TMJ pain. The bite must be evenly distributed for your new teeth to work optimally without causing undue stress on the implants.

Cleanings and follow-up

We recommend patients get three cleanings a year to keep the implants in top condition. Although dental implants are immune to regular gum disease, if not properly maintained the tissues and bone surrounding the implants can be become inflamed and eventually deteriorate causing the implant to fail. This is a condition called peri-implantitis. Our hygienists are specifically trained to clean your implant-supported teeth. Cleanings can also be alternated with your general dentist.

Once a year we like to repeat the 3D X-rays to check for any bone loss under the gum between the teeth, something that does sometimes occur, although we do everything we can when placing your implants so that this won’t happen to you. Peri-implantitis can also be a cause of this bone loss. Usually just a quick procedure is needed to remedy any bone loss that is found.
