All-on-4 Dental Implants Recovery
The All-on-4 dental implants manufactured by Nobel Biocare offer an advanced method to secure dentures for a full restoration. This procedure works by implanting the screws (implants) into four areas on each arch. In comparison to other implant dentures, All-on-4 uses fewer implants to obtain a secure fit. Dr. James Peterson recommends All-on-4 implants for patients who are looking for a fully restored smile without the hassle and dietary restrictions that come with removable dentures. Many Coppell, TX patients have reaped the benefits of the groundbreaking All-on-4 process, enjoying high-quality results. If you are interested in finding out more about All-on-4 implants and custom dentures, we welcome you to schedule an appointment at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Overview
All-on-4 can be used to replace the upper and/or lower arches with implants attached to custom-made dentures. You might be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 if you prefer the benefits of implanted dentures over removable dentures, which include few or no dietary restrictions, no messy adhesives, and no special cleaning. You will need to have good bone and gum density to be a candidate, as the screws rely on your bone and gums to maintain them in place. If needed, bone and/or gum grafts may be performed before implant surgery. Dr. Peterson can determine whether this process is best for you during your initial consultation and can help discuss all your options.

What to Expect with All-on-4® Dental Implants
To start your All-on-4 treatment, we will take scans and x-rays of your teeth. Dr. Peterson will create your unique treatment plan and talk with you about what you can expect during the process. In your first appointment, the implants will be placed in your mouth. Dr. Peterson will place a temporary denture over the implants while your mouth heals and your custom dentures are being created. Once they are ready, you will return to have your custom dentures attached and then adjusted for a good fit.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
You will need to schedule follow-up appointments following your implant placement so Dr. Peterson can monitor your progress and ensure the implants are integrating into your jawbone and gums as they should be. Once your custom dentures are in place, you can clean them like natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. You should continue to visit James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for annual exams and bi-annual cleanings to maintain your dentures, and so Dr. Peterson can monitor the health of your mouth.
