All on 4 Q & A

What is All-on-4?

All-on-4 procedures at Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group involve placing four dental implants in your top or bottom jaw to support dentures. It’s a cosmetic and restorative dental procedure that can produce the full set of beautiful teeth you desire. 

All-on-4 can improve:

  • Chewing
  • Speech
  • Facial symmetry
  • The appearance of your smile
  • Self-confidence

All-on-4 dentures look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. 

Are All-on-4 dentures right for me?

There are numerous types of dentures available at Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group. To determine if All-on-4, All-on-6, or other implant-supported dentures are right for you, your dentist reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. 

They also take dental X-rays. If you require tooth extraction or gum disease treatment, your provider first completes these procedures prior to dental implant placement.

What happens during All-on-4 placement?

The first step in getting All-on-4 dentures is placing the implants. Your specialist numbs the treatment area and inserts four titanium posts into your jawbone. The procedure is fast and painless. They often attach All-on-4 implant-supported dentures the same day, so you don’t have to go any length of time without teeth. 

Recovery time is minimal, though you may have to follow a soft-food diet for a little while. Adhere to your provider’s post-care instructions to optimize healing and ensure the best results. Call Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group if your dentures become loose or feel uncomfortable. 

How should I care for All-on-4 implant-supported dentures?

With All-on-4 implant-supported dentures, make sure to brush your teeth at least twice daily. Avoid chewing on hard objects and wear a mouthguard at night if you grind your teeth to avoid damage. If you chip or crack your dentures, visit Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group as soon as possible for restoration.

You should also schedule routine dental cleanings and exams with the experts at Wakim Cosmetic and Family Dental Group every six months, or more often if necessary, to maintain excellent oral health.
