What to Expect During the All-on-4 Process
Before we begin to perform All-on-4 Dental Implants, we will conduct an in-depth dental and medical health history review to determine the reason why All-on-4 Dental Implants are necessary. This process will include an examination of your bite and for any indications of periodontal disease, loose teeth, bone loss, TMJ, or signs of oral cancer. Once this underlying cause has been identified and we determine that All-on-4 will be the appropriate treatment option for you, it will then be necessary to take diagnostic exams (X-Rays and a CT scan) to ensure you have sufficient jawbone density and to identify the precise placement of the implants.
Once the optimal locations are marked, the actual procedure will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic and/or sedation. Once your soft tissue is numb, we will extract any loose or unhealthy teeth. Next, four titanium posts are surgically placed in your jawbone. Once these posts are strategically positioned, it will take several months for them to fully integrate with jawbone (osseointegration), or fuse to the jawbone. During this period, temporary dentures are placed allowing you some normalcy during the fusing process.
When the jawbone has fully fused with the titanium posts, your permanent set of dentures will literally snap on to extensions that have been placed on the titanium posts. We will next evaluate the overall fit and aesthetic appearance. Following this, the All-on-4 process will be finalized, and you can begin to enjoy your rejuvenated healthy smile.

- Eat only 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.
