Are you tired of your dentures? Do you want to finally feel confident about your teeth again? If so, consider restoring your smile and improving your oral health with All-On-4 dental implants from Advanced Dental Care.
With dental implants, a small screw made from titanium is surgically embedded within the jawbone. Rather than embedding a dental implant to replace each individual tooth, the All-On-4 procedure replaces an entire arch of teeth with just four dental implants. Over time, the titanium within these dental implants fuses with the jawbone, creating a lasting and permanent foundation for a brand-new smile.
This amazing dental implant technology is offered by Advanced Dental Care for patients throughout all of North Texas. Are you interested in finding out how the All-On-Four dental implant procedure could change your life? If so, contact Dr. Kar to schedule a FREE consultation today.
One of the most outstanding aspects of All-on-4 dental implants in Allen is that they are a suitable tooth replacement option for the majority of patients who have suffered extensive tooth loss. Even individuals whose jawbones are not dense enough to support traditional implants may be candidates for All-on-4 because of the strategic way in which the implants are placed.
During the All-on-4 procedure, a dentist in Allen inserts two implants in the jaw’s posterior region (the back) at an angle of roughly 45 degrees. This allows for maximum bone-to-implant contact. The other two implants are placed vertically in the bone’s anterior (front) region. Placing them in this way, utilizing areas where the bone naturally tends to be thicker and stronger, gives the implants the support they need. Oftentimes, no bone graft is required with the All-on-4 technique.
Also, because the All-on-4 process is so minimally invasive and requires so few implants, it tends to cost less than traditional implant treatments and requires a shorter recovery time.
If you are interested in receiving All-on-4 implants, Dr. Kar will first need to examine your mouth and determine whether this treatment is right for you. If it is, he will plan your surgery. During the procedure, he will make small incisions into the gums and drill a small hole in the bone in order to place the implants. Once they’re inserted, he’ll attach multi-unit abutments to them (these are the small pieces that connect the implants to the prosthetic teeth). Then, he’ll screw a temporary set of acrylic teeth onto the implants.
After the placement surgery is complete, you’ll wake up with your new set of teeth — that’s why the All-on-4 procedure is often called the Teeth in a Day treatment! During your recovery period, you may notice that your mouth is a little sore, but you should be able to manage any discomfort with mild OTC painkillers, such as ibuprofen.
After your mouth heals completely from your surgery and you receive your permanent implant-suported denture, your new teeth will need minimal maintenance. Just be sure you stick to a good oral hygiene routine and visit us for routine checkups. With proper care, you can expect your restored smile to last for decades!
Many dentists place and restore dental implants, but not all of them are as well-qualified as a prosthodontist. After dental school, a prosthodontist undergoes years of additional training that helps them understand how to create the most functional, beautiful, and comfortable dental prostheses possible. The artificial teeth they create are crafted with precision and care, providing patients with a strong bite and a confident smile. A prosthodontist’s intimate understanding of how the oral structures work also makes them well-qualified to perform implant placement surgery.
Dr. Kar, a prosthodontist, has studied the patented All-on-4 process in detail, and he has already helped many individuals to enjoy the benefits of the procedure. Each implant-supported denture he designs features a sturdy, biocompatible titanium bar to support its structure. The prosthetic teeth themselves fit precisely and are made to provide outstanding aesthetics.
