For patients who are missing most or all of their teeth on one or both of their dental arches, Dr. Llavona and Dr. Oliver are pleased to provide an alternative to traditional dentures. At Dental Specialists of Weston, we offer All-On-4® dental implants in Weston, Florida. This advanced treatment uses four dental implants across your dental arch to support a customized and permanently fixed set of dentures. There is no need to have uncomfortable, loose dentures that do not act like your natural teeth. If you would like to learn more about our implant-supported dentures, we invite you to contact us at 954-349-4993 today and schedule your appointment with our dentists!
What are All-On-4® Implants
For patients who have missing teeth, showing your smile can become embarrassing. To restore your smile, odds are you are looking for a way to replace your missing teeth. There are several ways to replace missing teeth. For single missing teeth, you can receive a dental implant or a dental bridge. Dental bridges can also be used to replace several missing teeth in a row. If you are missing most or all of your teeth on a dental arch, you can receive a partial or complete denture. While all of these are great restoration options, All-On-4® implants combine the restoration choices of dental implants and dentures to give you a better treatment option.
The All-On-4 implant system uses a series of four dental implants that are placed strategically across your dental arch. These implants are then used to hold a customized denture restoration in place, providing a more stable restoration that functions like your natural teeth.
Because the All-On-4 system uses dental implants, your procedure will be very similar to receiving a dental implant. Prior to your procedure, our dentists will use our advanced technology to access accurate and detailed images of your oral structure. This will help us to know exactly where your implants need to be placed.
During your implant procedure, we will begin by removing any remaining teeth in the dental arch that is receiving the All-On-4 treatment. Next, we will carefully and precisely place four dental implants across your dental arch. Each implant is placed at an angle, as this provides increased support from your jaw bone. Once your implants are inserted, our dentists will attach the abutments to the ends of the implants, which will then attach to a temporary denture. At the end of your treatment, you will walk out of our office with a brand-new smile in just the one visit!
What to Expect After Treatment
After your treatment, you will have a healing period that can range between a few to several weeks. During your recovery, you will have follow-up appointments with our team to ensure that you are healing properly. Our dentists will provide you with specific post-treatment instructions on how you can care for your new smile.
After your recovery period is complete, our team will create a customized denture that is designed just for you. We will then replace your temporary dentures with your customized one, which will be securely attached to your implants.
Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants
The All-On-4 implant system provides many benefits for our patients, including:
- Full-arch restoration with only four dental implants. Most other full-arch replacements require anywhere between six to eight implants.
- Same-day treatment means you do not have to leave our office without a new smile.
- In most cases, All-On-4 implants can be completed without a bone graft.
- Immediate improved satisfaction with your smile and quality of life.
- Restoration of the natural ability to eat, speak and smile.
- Shorter treatment times, due to angled implants that require no bone grafting. All-On-4 implants are also placed all at once, so you only need to come to our practice once.
- Lower cost than receiving multiple dental implants or other restorative treatments.
