All-on-4 Dental Implants

ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS IN CERRITOS, CA

Are you missing a few or more teeth in a row? All-On-4 dental implants are a safe and effective way to replace multiple teeth without the fuss and hassle of removable dentures. All-On-4 dental implants give you the look and feel of natural teeth.

WHAT ARE ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS?

A dental implant is actually a strong, secure screw that is placed into the jaw. The screw serves as a foundation upon which a crown or other dental device can be secured. In the case of All-on-4 implants, a permanent bridge to replace an entire row (aka arch) of teeth is secured to the jaw using four implants – thus the term “All-on-4.”

WHY CHOOSE ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS?

All-on-4 dental implants are one of the best ways to replace a row of missing teeth. Because the new row of teeth is secured to the jaw via four dental implants, they look, work, and act just like permanent teeth. Unlike dentures, the new teeth won’t slide around or shift, and you don’t have to remove them to clean them. You can just brush and floss as usual.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS?

While dentures could also be used to replace an arch of missing teeth, dentures are removable, while All-on-4 dental implants are fixed and permanent. All-on-4 dental implants are also more secure than typical dental bridges. With a new set of teeth, you will be able to chew and speak better. Your oral health will also improve because you now have the proper support in your mouth for optimal jaw movement.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR GETTING ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Your initial consultation will include a comprehensive exam and any needed photographs and X-rays. Either then or in a follow-up appointment, we will create impressions of your mouth and gums and use digital technology as needed. Our dentist will explain the treatment plan, and our hygienist will prep you for your dental implant surgery.

You may need sedation for your dental implant surgery, which we will discuss with you. During the surgery, dental implants will be put into place to create an anchor for your new teeth. You will also receive a temporary bridge while the implants are healing.

Finally, you will receive custom-crafted teeth for your All-On-4 implants that look and feel natural. You will end up with an amazing, natural-looking smile!

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER ALL-ON-4 IMPLANT SURGERY?

You may experience some minor soreness and tenderness after you receive your All-on-4 dental implants. We will provide specific instructions on your All-on-4 implants aftercare, including how to take care of your new teeth. You may also be prescribed an antibiotic to drive away any possible infections, and it is important to take it for the entire course. Over-the-counter pain medication can be used as needed.

WHAT ARE POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS OF ALL-ON-4 IMPLANTS?

A little bleeding is to be expected following the insertion of dental implants for the first 24 hours or so. However, if the bleeding is excessive or does not stop, call us right away or go to an ER if warranted. People on blood thinners may need special attention regarding bleeding.

Some swelling is also normal and can be lessened with an ice pack 24 hours after the surgery.

Right after the surgery you might experience some nausea due to the accidental swallowing of blood during surgery, or as a minor side effect of medication. Of course, call us right away if it seems serious.

HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Since All-on-4 dental implants work and act just like your natural teeth, all you need to do (for the most part) is treat them with the same high-quality care as you would natural teeth. This includes regular flossing and brushing with a soft-bristled brush. A water pic can help with flossing, as well as specialty “crown and bridge” floss.
