Full Arch of Teeth
Dorchester Health Centre
All-on-Four ® "Teeth in a Day" implant supported full arch of teeth
Millions of people are missing most or all of their teeth. For these people, a denture replacement solution that eliminates the need for denture adhesives might mean a new level of comfort and ease in their life. Denture replacement alternatives use dental implants for support, thereby removing the need for the use of messy and unreliable denture adhesives. Denture replacement solutions can even make sore gums a thing of the past.
So, could you imagine walking into our office with a denture and walking out the same day with beautiful arch of teeth permanently fixed into place?
The All-on-4 procedure® uses highly refined techniques that allow us to place implants in specific positions to support each other and an arch of teeth.
The special method of angled implants makes this process unique. Unlike an implant bridge which requires the implants be inserted straight in vertically like the root of a tooth, the angle method uses the strong bone under the nose (for an upper denture) or the strong bone of the chin (for a lower denture). This allows the procedure to be successful for most denture wearers with no need for invasive bone grafting procedures.
Even people who have had their denture for many years, and who have experience much bone loss, may think they could never have a fixed arch of teeth. They might be pleasantly surprised to know that because of the angel method, they too can have this procedure.
You will see a denturist who is specially trained in the All on Four® procedure and we work closely with him in arranging the appointments and timing leading up to the big day. He is present with you in the dental centre the day of the procedure. His job is to transform your denture into a beautiful arch of teeth that can be fitted and permanently attached to the implants that day.
The end result is strong, beautiful, permanent teeth that allow you to eat, smile and enjoy life to its fullest the very same day.
