As a one-stop dental practice, Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 is pleased to offer dental implant solutions for replacing missing teeth. Houston, TX patients who have lost most or all of their teeth may be candidates for this long-term solution with All-on-4 dental implants from Nobel Biocare. All-on-4 implants are an innovative tooth replacement system in which four special dental implants are placed within the jaw and support a full-arch set of beautiful replacement teeth. If you have experienced tooth loss, All-on-4 implants may be just the solution you need to enjoy a confident, functional, and younger-looking smile once again.
All-on-4 dental implants offer full-arch restoration for those who have already lost their teeth or need to have multiple damaged teeth removed and replaced. Losing teeth can affect how you feel about yourself along with your ability to talk, bite, chew, and smile with confidence. By replacing an entire arch of teeth with All-on-4 implants, you may be able to experience improved oral function and quality of living along with a smile that can make you look and feel more youthful. Dental implants offer a long-term option for tooth loss and are typically very stable and secure as they form a solid connection with the jawbone. To learn if All-on-4 implants are right for your tooth replacement needs, schedule your consultation with general dentist Dr. Saba Jamali at Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 today.
Many patients choose dental implants to replace their missing or irreparably damaged teeth for a wide range of advantages this option offers their oral health and lifestyle. All-on-4 is especially appealing for those who need total arch tooth replacement for upper or lower teeth or who want a more stable alternative to removable denture appliances. All-on-4 implants are strategically positioned in the jaw at certain angles to take full advantage of the available bone tissue. Thanks to this connection, with the bone, this approach offers great support and stability for replacement teeth. Even patients who have experienced bone loss in the jaw may still be candidates for All-on-4 implants, unlike other implant solutions that may require higher levels of bone.
All-on-4 implants are designed to support a full-arch, natural-looking appliance for replacement teeth that securely attaches to the implants and do not need adhesive to stay in place. Since implants fuse with the jawbone, the ability to bite and chew is restored back to nearly full power. Patients who choose All-on-4 implants can often enjoy the nutritious foods that they love for better overall health and not have to be concerned over their replacement teeth slipping or rocking. Choosing dental implants for tooth replacement can also help maintain a natural shape to the jaw, providing a more youthful facial profile.
For many Houston, TX patients, one of the greatest advantages of replacing teeth with All-on-4 dental implants is the immediate results this system brings to their smiles. In many situations, All-on-4 implants are placed in the jaw and a temporary set of replacement teeth are attached within the very same day. These new teeth offer function and cosmetic appeal right away, keeping many patients from having to go without teeth. Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 is proud to offer the All-on-4 solution to patients, which carries a 98 percent success rate. We invite you to talk with Dr. Jamali and learn if All-on-4 can help you overcome tooth loss.
What to Expect
A personalized consultation with our team can help you learn if All-on-4 dental implants are a good option for your smile. To learn more about your oral health, we will take 3D cone beam images of your mouth, jaw, and face, which will give Dr. Jamali and our team detailed information about the level of bone available in your jaw for dental implant support. These images will be used to plan the exact positioning of the implant that will support your replacement teeth. On the day of your All-on-4 implant surgery, our team will numb your gum tissues and provide sedation services if necessary. We will place your four dental implants in your jaw at precise angles within the bone to provide a stable foundation for your full-arch appliance.
Once your implants are in place, a temporary (yet functional) appliance will be attached to your dental implants. This temporary set of teeth will still offer a natural-looking smile and will be worn while your implants fuse with your jawbone (a process that takes about 3 – 6 months). We will bring you back in after this time has passed to remove your temporary appliance and finish your All-on-4 implants tooth replacement procedure by creating and attaching your permanent and beautiful full-arch set of teeth.
You may be pleasantly surprised to learn that the process for All-on-4 dental implants is a minimally invasive tooth replacement procedure. Following the surgical placement of your four dental implants, swelling and minor discomfort may occur within your treatment site. However, this can be managed with cold compresses or nonprescription pain mediation and will likely resolve within a few days. Instructions on how to keep your implant sites clean while you heal will be provided by our team, but please contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns. In general, dental implants are cared for in the same manner as natural teeth through excellent daily oral home care. Even though dental implants do not decay, you should still schedule routine dental cleanings and exams at Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 so that Dr. Jamali and our team can monitor the health of your bone and gums that support your implants and help you keep your tooth replacement in great shape well into the future.
A portion of the All-on-4 dental implants procedure may be covered by dental insurance. After your initial consultation, we will contact your provider to learn the details of your coverage. Our caring team understands the value of a comfortable, lasting tooth replacement and wants to help you enjoy the best option for your needs and budget. Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 accepts several flexible payment options, including low-cost payment plans through our finance partner, CareCredit®.
