All-on-4 Dental Implants at Featherstone Periodontics
All-on-4 Dental Implants is an innovative dental implant treatment that replaces missing, broken, or decayed teeth in the entire lower or upper jaw through the placement of four strategically placed posts. All-on-4 Dental Implants provide a natural feeling and natural looking correction to the loss of teeth and restore functionality, preserves the health of your surrounding teeth, and reduces your risk of developing additional physical or oral health issues.
In addition to negatively impacting the aesthetic appearance of your smile, the loss of teeth can compromise your overall physical and oral health and cause additional issues to develop, such as jaw joint pain, change in your bite, the loss of bone, and teeth to drift or shift. The loss of teeth also inhibits your ability to eat and cause your face to sag, making you appear older. All-on-4 Dental Implants are a safe and effective treatment option for patients looking for a fast, cost-effective solution to restore their natural smile.
With over 60,000 dental surgeries performed and over 20,000 dental implants placed, you can be confident that you will receive high quality care from established professionals that is designed to meet your unique needs.

What to Expect During the All-on-4 Process
Prior to performing All-on-4 Dental Implants, we will conduct an in-depth dental and medical health history review to determine the underlying reason why All-on-4 Dental Implants are necessary. This process will include an examination of your bite and for any indications of loose teeth, bone loss, TMJ, oral cancer, or signs of periodontal disease. Once the underlying cause has been identified and it is determined that All-on-4 is the appropriate treatment option for you, it will be necessary to take diagnostic exams (CT scan and X-Rays) to ensure you have sufficient jawbone mass and to determine the precise placement of the implants.
Once the optimal locations are marked, the procedure will begin with administration of a local anesthetic and/or sedation. Next, any loose or unhealthy teeth are extracted. Following this, four titanium posts are strategically placed in your gums. Once these posts are properly positioned, it will take some time for them to fully integrate with jawbone (osseointegration). During this period, temporary teeth are placed on the implants to reduce your risk of developing an infection and allow you to preserve a full, healthy smile.
Once the jawbone has fully fused with the dental implants, permanent teeth will be placed. Following placement, we will evaluate the overall fit and aesthetic appearance. Following this, the All-on-4 process will be complete and you can begin to enjoy your bright, new, full healthy smile.
Aftercare Following All-on-4 Dental Implants
Following surgical placement of your All-on-4 Dental Implants, it is essential to follow these and any additional post-operative instructions provided by your periodontist to minimize risks and enjoy a fast recovery.
To reduce pain or discomfort, take the recommended dosage of prescribed painkillers and/or over-the counter medication.
To reduce swelling, apply an ice bag over the area for ten to fifteen minutes at a time.
Do not spit, rinse, or use a straw for the first 24 hours.
Avoid intense physical activity and rest as much as possible for the first 24 hours.
Avoid brushing your teeth for the first 24 hours, after which you can resume gentle brushing. You can resume flossing your natural teeth after this period, but do not floss the dental implant. Moving forward, you should consider alternative flossing options for your dental implants, such as interdental brushes or oral irrigation.
Eat soft foods such as applesauce, yogurt, pudding, or soup for the first two weeks and slowly reintroduce harder foods as the healing process progresses.
By following these instructions and continuing to keep your teeth and gums clean, you will enjoy a fast healing process and can return to your normal routine as quickly as possible
