What Are All-On-4® Dental Implants?
If you wear dentures, you’re probably well acquainted with the various ways in which they can hamper your freedom of expression and your quality of life. If you received your dentures in the past decade or two, you may have considered and ultimately dismissed dental implants as an option because of the time and cost associated with them.
In the past, restoring a full set of teeth with dental implants sometimes meant upwards of 8 implants per arch. It was a long process that required multiple visits. Under those circumstances, we understand how (even with all their drawbacks) dentures appeared to be a practical alternative.
But what if you could schedule a visit with our world-class dentist and come out the same day with a full set of natural-looking, fully-functioning teeth that won’t slip? Believe it or not, that’s exactly what we can provide for you!
All-On-4® Dental Implants Deliver Same Day Smiles
At Sedation and Implant Dentistry of Tehachapi, we make it a point to stay informed on innovative technologies, and the All-On-4® dental implant concept is the best there is. Tehachapi dental implant dentist, Dr. Jose David Sanchez, has replaced the dentures of hundreds of Kern County residents with a fixed full arch using just four of the highest quality implants per arch.
The All-On-4® dental implant surgery takes approximately 3 hours per arch. Dental implant dentist, Dr. Sanchez, will place the implants and the arches of your new teeth while you are comfortable and under IV sedation. By combining the precision of the All-On-4® technology with our highly experienced dentist, we can restore your beautiful smile in just one day.
The procedure will not only give you a fully functioning set of teeth that allows you to smile freely, but it will also restore your facial and muscle tone and prevent future bone deterioration in your jaw.
After The All-On-4® Implant Surgery
When you leave our office on the day of your procedure, the actual teeth attached to your implants will be temporary but still fully functional. The reason for this is that your implants need time to heal and to fuse to your jawbone. Once that bond has happened, you will return to Sedation and Implant Dentistry of Tehachapi and our team will replace your temporary teeth with your new permanent ones. With good oral hygiene practices, these teeth will last the rest of your life.
Unlike with dentures, you’ll have no need for adhesives or worry about slippage. You’ll be able to eat as you please and smile as often as you like, without covering your mouth. If you are ready to eat the foods you want and to laugh again, then contact Sedation and Implant Dentistry of Tehachapi. We’ll help you get back that quality of life you deserve.
