About All-on-4 Dental Implants
The All-on-4 dental implants solution from Nobel Biocare® offers a revolutionary approach to replace a whole arch of teeth. This treatment works by surgically positioning special dental implant screws (posts) into four precise locations within the lower or upper arch. Compared to other full-arch implant options, All-on-4 often uses fewer implants to gain a secure fit and stable biting function. Experienced general dentist Dr. Fesaha Gebrehiwot may recommend All-on-4 dental implants for patients who are looking for a long-term alternative to the dietary and other limitations that come with removable dentures. Many Wylie, TX patients have reaped the benefits of the innovative All-on-4 procedure, appreciating quality results. If you are interested in finding out more information on All-on-4 dental implants for total arch tooth replacement, we encourage you to make a consultation with Dr. G. at Trusted Dental Care.
Best Candidates for All-on-4
All-on-4 dental implant solutions can be utilized to replace one or both arches, combining the lasting benefits of implants with the convenience of a total-arch tooth replacement appliance. You may be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 dental implants if you have struggled with the comfort, fit, and dietary limitations of traditional removable dentures or need to have multiple teeth extracted. All-on-4 dental implants offer a cost-savings and simplify the tooth replacement process by keeping you from needing individual implants placed at each missing tooth site. Unlike other dental implant options, All-on-4 implants are placed at strategic angles in the bone and can be ideal even if you have lost bone tissue in your jaw. After taking digital x-rays and examining your mouth, Dr. G. can help you determine whether this treatment is right for your oral health needs.

The All-on-4 Implants Process
To start your All-on-4 dental implants process, Dr. G. will place local anesthesia in the treatment site to provide a comfortable procedure. If you prefer, we can pair your surgery with nitrous oxide sedation for an extra level of comfort. He will then position the implants at a precise angle in your jaw and attach a temporary restoration (full-arch set of teeth) immediately, in most cases. This allows you to begin enjoying the benefits of your tooth replacement the very same day as implant surgery. Over the next few months, your implants will fuse with the jaw, forming a solid connection that mimics natural tooth roots. Dr. G. will then create a new custom, permanent set of teeth and affix this natural-looking restoration securely to your All-on-4 dental implants.
After Your Implant Procedure
You might experience some discomfort and swelling in your mouth following implant surgery. However, this can usually be relieved with pain medication and cold compresses applied to the face. Our team will show you how to clean and care for your All-on-4 implants and replacement teeth with daily flossing and brushing. Since All-on-4 implants generally carry no dietary restrictions, you are free to eat and enjoy your favorite foods. Throughout the recovery process, we will schedule follow-up visits so Dr. G. can check your progress be certain that the implants are healing into your gums and bone. You should continue to visit Trusted Dental Care for dental cleanings and checkups to maintain your implant tooth replacements.
