A minimally invasive solution with a fixed full-arch restoration for high patient satisfaction, the All-on-4® treatment concept is the best solution for full-arch treatment using tilted implants.
It is a cost-efficient, graft-less solution that provides patients with a fixed, full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
So, if you are someone who is looking for a permanent solution for full upper and/or lower teeth restoration, the denturists at High River Denture Clinic can help you. It will just take one appointment at our clinic in High River or Claresholm and you will walk out with teeth you can eat with to 70% of normal capacity the same day. And, that too with no bone grafting.
The All-on-4® treatment concept closely replicates the function of your natural teeth while remaining cost-effective and without sacrificing quality. There is minimal discomfort. The benefits are a stronger bite, reducing premature facial ageing, helping to strengthen the GI tract, able to make healthier eating choices and restoring your youth.
All-on-4® dental implants help to provide strength and force that is similar to that of natural teeth, allowing you to smile, talk and chew more effectively. Each bridge is affixed to your mouth with 4 and sometimes 5 small implants. These “posts” are gently placed into your jaws during a quick and minimally invasive procedure.
Other Benefits Include:
A cost-effective fixed bridge or denture solution. With only 4 implants for each jaw, the overall cost of dentures is lowered.
No need to remove a denture after meals or at nighttime. They can be cared for and cleaned just like natural teeth.
They fit like fixed bridges and feel more like natural teeth than conventional dentures.
Because nothing is covering the roof of the mouth the palate is freed from the prison of a conventional denture, allowing more natural tasting of food and better speech through improved tongue space.
The bite force is greatly improved so you can enjoy the foods you previously could not with conventional dentures. It also allows you to enjoy a more varied diet than with conventional dentures.
Help prevent bone loss after extraction of natural teeth, thereby helping to prevent premature ageing from atrophy of the jawbones.
A long-term solution that can last for decades or even a lifetime when cared for properly.
Avoid excessive dental appointments for traditional denture treatments.
First, we will do an examination, consultation and treatment planning with you and our team. All options will be discussed and a co-diagnosis and plan will be made with you making the final decision for the right treatment for you.
During a thorough consultation at our office, our team walks you through imaging and diagnostics so we can create a treatment plan. The 3D models and digital imaging give us a highly accurate map of your mouth so placement is safe and predictable. At this point, we will also learn more about how you want your new smile to look. We will go over the 3D imaging and diagnostics and walk you through the process to ensure that you get the looks and smile you always wanted. In addition to this, we will plan the implant placement for a safe and predictable result.
After impression and bite appointments with our team, the surgeon will carefully place dental implants into the jawbone at 4 specific locations. Unlike traditional implants, 2 of the 4 are placed on an angle. This allows us to load the bridge immediately and eliminates the 4 to 6 months of healing time before a secure bridge can be placed. There is often no need for bone grafts when using this technique. Once placed, provisional teeth are secured onto the implants. After a short while, you will go home the same day with temporized fixed bridges, a new smile and rejuvenated confidence.
You will be able to use your new teeth right away, chewing on a soft diet the very same day. Several weeks later, after your mouth has adapted to the implants, you will be provided with the permanent and much stronger final prosthesis. This will require a few more appointments to ensure that you are satisfied with the final result.
In no time you will be back to enjoying your favourite foods and life with All-on-4® dental implants.
