Using a new, innovative method called All-on-4 dental implants, the highly trained implant dentists at Löberg Professional Dental Corporation can give patients with dentures or fixed bridges a complete set of permanent teeth in just one day.
A dental implant can replace one or all teeth. The implant, made of titanium, is inserted into the jawbone, so the natural bone fuses around it and forms a strong simulated tooth root. It can be topped by a restoration tooth or used to support a bridge of multiple teeth.
Traditional implant-supported dentures can require up to twelve implants and involve weeks to months of healing. All-on-4 dental implants give you “Teeth in a Day” by using the most advanced implant technology available.
Think about a dining room chair. The four legs are placed around the chair perimeter to provide optimum support for the chair seat. When weight is applied, it spreads evenly across the four legs. All on 4 dental implants follow a similar mechanical principal, using just four inserted titanium screws strategically placed in your mouth to withstand the forces of your jaw and to give the greatest strength to the attached tooth restorations. Titanium is the preferred material of choice, because it has the capacity to fuse to bone and actually take on a tooth root’s characteristics. This is called osseointegration.
An initial appointment is made to collect patient medical history and to take x-rays of your teeth, which are used to create the new restorations and to guide the dentist in placing the implants. Your gums will be thoroughly cleaned, and if you have any decayed teeth that need to be extracted, this may be performed at this visit.
Next, you will return for the implant placement. Sedation dentistry will be used to ensure you are relaxed and comfortable for this minor procedure. A temporary implant-supported bridge is attached to the implant heads and any adjustments are made. Then you will be sent home with your new teeth and new smile. You will even be able to enjoy a light dinner of solid food that evening!
A few weeks later after the jaw has healed, you will return to have the temporary bridge replaced with the permanent restorations. Learn more about All-on-4 teeth in a day in Laguna Hills by calling us today!
