All-on-4 Dental Implants Rockford, IL
at featherstone periodontics & Implant Dentistry

All-on-4 Dental Implants Rockford IL 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 restores 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 causes 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.

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.

After the optimal locations are marked, the procedure will begin with the administration of a local anesthetic and/or sedation if necessary. Once the soft tissue is numb any loose or unhealthy teeth are extracted. Following this, four titanium posts are surgically placed in your jawbone. Once these posts are strategically positioned, it will take some time 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.

Once the jawbone has fully fused with the titanium posts, your permanent set of dentures will snap on to the extensions we add the titanium posts. We will next 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

  • 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.
  • 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
