At Helix Dental, we offer All-on-4 implants, or “Teeth in a Day,” as it is affectionally called. These implants are used to support a fixed prosthesis containing 10 to 14 teeth; they are usually placed within 24 hours after surgery. Our dentists welcome your call for information on this advanced restorative service by calling 619-493-2103. The screw-retained and permanent replacement is completed the same day and placed in the whole upper and/or lower set of teeth. For the process, Dr. Flamenco or Dr. Kotha utilize a denture or bridge secured to the implants.
The procedure is often recommended for patients with severe tooth loss or decay, and can also be used for patients who cannot get traditional dental implants, due to bone loss in the jaw. In the past, bone grafting was usually required, since tooth loss is accompanied by loss of the jaw bone, but with the All-on-4 protocol, you may be able to skip this step entirely.
The benefits of this procedure include avoiding rebuilding bone, which can be long and costly. Our dentists will administer careful analysis of the bone structure for a successful outcome. A fixed, full-arch restoration is a less-invasive solution than other multiple-implant treatments, and is cost-efficient. The benefits of All-on-4 include:
- Function restored immediately
- No grafting
- Full-arch with just four implants
- Less treatment time
- Quality of life vastly improved
- Reduced cost
- More precise and comfortable fit
