The dental implants made by Nobel Biocare, All-on-4, offers revolutionary results to men and women who desire a natural-looking smile without the inconveniences of traditional dentures. This procedure works by implanting four screws (dental implants) into the upper and/or lower arch to hold dental restorations. In comparison to other conventional dentures, the All-on-4 system uses fewer implants to get a secure fit. Our dental team at SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach recommends All-on-4 implants for patients who are looking for a fully restored smile without the hassle and dietary restrictions that are associated with removable dentures. Many North Miami Beach, FL patients have reaped the benefits of the groundbreaking All-on-4 implants, enjoying high-quality results. If you are interested in learning more about All-on-4 implants and custom dentures, we welcome you to schedule an appointment at SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach. Restore your smile today with the All-on-4 system.
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. The All-on-4 system also doesn't include the use of bulky plastic restorations, like traditional dentures, which can cause slipping and unwanted food buildup. You will need to have good bone and gum density to be a candidate as the screws rely on your bone and gums to keep them in place. If needed, bone and/or gum grafts may be performed before implant surgery. Our dental team can determine whether this process is appropriate for you during your initial consultation and can help discuss all your options.
What to Expect
Patients can transform their smile in just two visits with the All-on-4 system. To begin your All-on-4 treatment, we will take scans and x-rays of your teeth. In your first appointment, the implants will be placed in your mouth and a temporary denture will be placed over the implants while your mouth heals and your custom dentures are being created. Once your implants have fused properly to your gums and bone, you will return for your second appointment to have your custom dentures attached and adjusted for a good fit.
You may experience some discomfort and pain in your gums after implant surgery. During the time you are using temporary dentures, there will be some diet restrictions and cleaning instructions to follow. You will also visit for regular follow-ups during the healing period so we can monitor your progress and be sure that the implants are integrating into your jawbone and gums as they should be. Once your custom dentures are put in, you can clean them, like natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. You should continue to see SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach for annual exams and bi-annual cleanings to maintain your dentures and so we can monitor the health of your mouth.
Some insurance plans may offer limited coverage for implant dentures. It is likely that there will be some out-of-pocket costs, but our team will work with your insurance to maximize your coverage. If you do not have insurance, SEDA Dental of North Miami Beach accepts many payment methods, including low-interest financing. We can help make your All-on-4 treatment affordable.
