Regain natural-looking and -feeling teeth in a single appointment. All-on-4 Implants are ideal for patients seeking multiple tooth replacement or full upper or lower arch replacement. If you are missing most or all of your teeth and are interested in single-appointment implants, this procedure could be your ideal fit.
The full arch dental implant procedure provides a full set of replacement teeth in one day. This process is a cutting-edge dental option for those seeking minimally invasive tooth replacement with a streamlined process.
There is a range of names used to describe this procedure – anything that indicates that new implants plus a fixed bridge will be placed in one day. These procedures restore a full arch quickly, efficiently and effectively.
The All-on-4 procedure replaces an entire upper or lower set of teeth using 4 dental implants. These 4 implants are precisely placed so that they can anchor a full bridge. This allows for permanent denture placement without worries of dentures slipping, clicking or not functioning well.
The implants are placed at specific intervals in the jaw bone and gums. An accompanying fixed bridge is then placed. This is a temporary arch that will allow you to have a full smile while your implants heal. This healing process allows them to fully integrate with the bone, so that they act as long-term anchors for restorations. Once the implants have healed, you’ll return to the office and receive your permanent bridge.
All-on-4 implant surgery is an outpatient procedure completed in Dr. Hinebaugh’s office. We will provide local anesthetic so that the area is fully numb during surgery, and offer sedation options as well.
Dr. Hinebaugh will discuss specifics with you at your appointment and provide detailed instructions for the healing process. It is important that you maintain a soft diet for the first few weeks, and are diligent but gentle with your oral hygiene. Keeping your mouth clean and healthy will ensure proper healing.
