The All-on-4 dental implants, manufactured by Nobel Biocare, provide an advanced methodology to fasten dentures to attain a full restoration. This procedure works by implanting screws (implants) to four spots on the upper and/or lower arch. In comparison to other enhancement dentures, All-on-4 utilizes fewer implants to achieve a more secure hold than traditional methods. Board-certified dentist Dr. Matthew Wolfe suggests All-on-4 implants if you are wanting a completely restored mouth without the bother and diet limitations of removable dentures. Several Rochester-based patients have enjoyed the advantages of the new All-on-4 process, appreciating the quality of their outcomes. If you are interested in getting more information about All-on-4 and custom-made dentures, we welcome you to reach out to our office at Signature Dentistry of Rochester in Rochester Hills, MI.
All-on-4 implants can be utilized to substitute the upper and/or lower dental arches together with implants connected to custom-crafted dentures. You may be a good candidate for All-on-4 in the event that you prefer the advantages of implant-supported dentures compared to traditional removable dentures, such as no or few diet limitations, no burdensome, sticky glues, and no tedious denture soaking. You will be required to have sufficient gum and bone density to receive the implants because the implants rely on the health of your gums and bone to maintain their hold. If necessary, gum and/or bone grafts might be required before implant surgery. Dr. Wolfe can determine if this process is best for you during your consultation. Then, he will go over all of your options with you.
What to Expect
Dr. Wolfe will perform your All-on-4 procedure in collaboration with a local oral surgeon to yield the best results possible. To start your All-on-4 treatment, we will take impressions and x-rays of your mouth. Then, Dr. Wolfe will develop your personal treatment program and go over your choices for sedation throughout the procedures. During your first procedure, the dental implants will be put into your mouth. A temporary cover will then be placed to protect the dental implants as your gums and jawbone recover. Finally, your dentures will be created. In a few months time, you will then have to come back to have your custom-made dentures connected and adjusted for a good fit.
It is normal to feel some pain and discomfort in your mouth following the All-on-4 implant surgery. During the time you spend with the temporary dentures, there will be some dietary limitations and cleaning directions that you must follow. You will also need to come in for routine follow-ups throughout the recovery period so Dr. Wolfe can monitor your recovery and be sure that the implants are healing correctly into your jawbone and gums. As soon as your custom dentures have been placed, you should clean them just like natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. You should continue to contact Signature Dentistry of Rochester to schedule your yearly examinations and twice-yearly professional cleanings to maintain your dentures, and so Dr. Wolfe can track the health of your mouth.
Some insurance companies may provide partial coverage for custom dentures and All-on-4 implants. It's very likely that there will be some personal expenses; however, our staff will use your insurance to optimize your policy. If you do not have insurance, Signature Dentistry of Rochester accepts numerous other payments, such as low-interest medical financing. Dr. Wolfe and his esteemed staff will help your All-on-4 procedure fit neatly into your budget.
