Dental Implant Restoration
Restoring your missing teeth isn't just beneficial for the visual benefits. It can help you with oral hygiene and provide the stability needed for other functions. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a new-age solution to a much older problem. Unlike normal dental implants, this deals with multiple missing teeth uniquely. Visit Dr Liu Family Dental, and book a consultation with Raymond Liu DDS and to understand your oral health and whether you qualify for All-on-4 dental implants.
All-on-4 Dental Implants vs Dentures
Losing teeth can be quite inconvenient, no matter your age. Once you begin to lose teeth or experience tooth decay, it is quite an alarming realization as it can point to oral disease. Multiple teeth can be lost in an accident, chronic illness, or blunt-force impact. It is vital to start replacing your teeth before it's too late. Protect the rest of your teeth from decay by targeting the ones you have already lost. The All-on-4 procedure can replace common dentures, which aren't as impactful. In fact, dental implants will always come out on top when it comes to implants versus dentures. This is because dentures can slip out, look awkward, are hard to maintain, and affect jawbone and gum health.
How is an All-on-4 Dental Implant Restoration Performed?
All-on-4 dental implants work with the upper and lower arch. Dental implants are created after measuring relevant distances. Artificial teeth are then attached to a bridge, all in one day!
This procedure is faster than dental implants and ideal for those who don't want to rely on multiple procedures. It provides all of the benefits of regular dental implants. With the All-on-4 dental implants, you can restore your smile in a day.
How to Prepare for the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure
Before stepping into the dentist's office for your procedure, make sure you have all of your questions answered and asked everything you need to know. Asking the right questions will ensure you are prepared for the procedure and avoid any surprises on the day of surgery. Moreover, call a friend or family member and ensure you have someone around to care for you post-procedure. You need to fast before the surgery and take extra care of what you eat afterward.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Aftercare
You can treat your All-on-4 dental implants just like natural teeth. Keep them clean, brush, and floss regularly. However, go easy for several hours post-procedure. Use soft-bristled toothbrushes and avoid irritating the surgery site. Get some rest, eat the right food, and take over-the-counter pain medication if you feel particularly uncomfortable. Make sure your friend or family member checks on you regularly and keep a water bottle nearby.
