All-on-4™ Dental Implants
Can you bite into corn on the cob without having to worry? Do you have dentures that move too much? Tired of gluing your teeth into place? All-on-4 Dental Implants is a state-of-the-art innovative procedure that provides patients non-removable, attached teeth (bridges). Utilizing as few as four dental implants, Dr. Ace Jovanovski, specializes in offering you new teeth in as little as one day. For those that are about to lose or have lost all their upper and/or lower teeth, chewing can be a challenge. Finding a good replacement for all of the teeth can be a struggle. Dr. Ace can provide you restorative options that don't necessarily require lengthy bone grafting to restore your dental implants.
The All-on-4 technique is specifically designed to use only four implants that are available for immediate function. All-on-4 implants do not typically require bone grafting, so they are an ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume. Once the implants have been placed, the new or existing denture is used as the framework for a temporary set of teeth that will be attached that day. Once the bone has fully integrated with the implant (3-4 months), the temporary teeth are removed and the new, final set of teeth are made and anchored into place permanently.
As with any implant procedure, the All-on-4 Technique depends on standard implant protocols, and sound treatment planning, on the part of the implant dentist. Thus, the All-on-4 Technique represents a viable option for dentists who are hoping to bring the advantages of fixed implant prosthodontics to their patients. In proper clinical situations, the technique utilizes an immediate loading protocol and constitutes a valuable addition to the implant dentist's armamentarium.
