All-on-4 Dental Implants Dixon IL is an innovative dental implant treatment that will replace missing, broken, or decayed teeth in the entire jaw, either upper or lower, through the simple placement of four strategically placed titanium posts. All-on-4 Dental Implants will provide a both a natural feeling and a natural looking correction to the loss of teeth and will restore functionality, preserve the health of your neighboring teeth, and also reduce the risk of developing any additional physical or oral health issues.

In addition to the obvious negative impact that missing teeth have on the appearance of your smile, the loss of teeth can compromise your overall oral and physical health and cause other issues to develop, These include jaw joint pain, a change in your bite, teeth to drift or shift  and the loss of bone. The loss of teeth also affects your ability to eat and will cause your face to sag, making you look older. All-on-4 Dental Implants are a very safe and effective treatment option for you if you are looking for a fast, cost-effective solution to restore your natural smile.

What to Expect During the All-on-4 Process

Prior to starting any All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure, we will first conduct an in-depth dental and medical health history review to determine your personal underlying reason why tooth replacement is necessary. This evaluation will include an examination of your bite and for any indications of TMY, bone loss, loose teeth, oral cancer, or the signs of periodontal disease. Once we are comfortably identified the underlying cause and we collectively determine that All-on-4 Dental Implant is indeed the appropriate treatment option for you, it will be then be imperative to take diagnostic exams (such as a CT scan and X-Rays) to ensure you have sufficient jawbone density and to also determine the exact placement of the implant posts.

Once we have confirmed the optimal locations, the procedure will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic to numb the soft tissue and/or sedation for your additional comfort if necessary. Next, any unhealthy or loose teeth will be extracted. Following this, the four titanium posts are surgically placed in your jawbone. Once these posts are strategically positioned, it may take a few months for them to fully integrate with the jawbone (osseointegration), or to fuse to the jawbone. During this period, temporary dentures are fabricated allowing you some normalcy during the fusing process.

Once the jawbone has fully fused with the titanium posts, your permanent set of dentures will snap on to extensions we add to the posts. Following this final placement, we will evaluate the overall fit and aesthetic appearance. After this, the All-on-4 process will be complete, and you can begin to enjoy your new, healthy smile. Since the posts now act as roots you enjoy natural stability through biting, chewing, speaking, and smiling.

  • Do not spit, rinse, or use a straw for the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid brushing your teeth for the first 24 hours, after which you can resume gentle brushing.
  • Avoid intense physical activity and rest as much as possible for the first 24 hours.
  • Eat soft foods such as applesauce, yogurt, pudding, or soup for the first two weeks and then slowly reintroduce harder foods as the healing process progresses.
