All-on-Four Dental Implants in Orlando
The health and overall appearance of your teeth can begin to decline with time, leading to pain, missing teeth, and other issues impacting how you feel about your smile. Missing teeth are embarrassing and cause you to try to hide your smile in photos and social situations. Advancements in dental implant technology has led to comfortable, affordable dental implants that can improve the look of your smile without a difficult recovery or painful surgery.
First developed in the 1990s, the All-on-Four dental implant treatment replaces failing teeth or existing dentures with beautiful dental implants. The All-on-Four dental treatment avoids bone grafting and multiple surgeries, painlessly improving your smile in one session. Dr. Miranda has extensive experience with the procedure and has performed many All-on-Four dental implants for residents throughout the Orlando area.
IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR ALL-ON-FOUR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants are intended for men and women who struggle with serious dental issues. If you’ve been considering All-on-Four dental implants, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Miranda and the team at Altamonte Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry will help you resolve serious dental problems, including:
- Missing all or some of the teeth on your top jaw, bottom jaw, or both
- Embarrassment or lowered self-esteem due to missing or unhealthy teeth
- Pain or other medical conditions as a result of declining oral health
- Avoiding pictures or other situations where a smile is appropriate
- You have dentures, and are tired of the daily routine
Candidates for All-on-Four implants should also be seeking a permanent, natural-looking solution for their teeth or an alternative to dentures or other treatments.
The All-on-Four Dental Implant Procedure
To prepare for the procedure, any failing teeth will be removed to make room for the implant. Your mouth and teeth will also be thoroughly cleaned. You’ll be given an anesthetic during the procedure so the procedure is painless and comfortable. The implants are custom-made pieces that include natural-looking teeth and gums that blend perfectly with any natural remaining teeth. Then the implants will be placed in position and secured using four screws, as opposed to a screw on each tooth as is the case with other implants.
The All-on-Four procedure employs four dental implants that attach to the top arch, bottom arch, or both arches of your mouth. Implants used in All-on-Four procedures are uniquely designed to function immediately, without the need for bone grafting surgeries. Unlike ordinary dentures that simply sit on the top of your gums secured by adhesives, our Orlando All-on-Four dental implants are secured to the jaw bone within the gum. This makes them a strong, natural looking, and reliable permanent teeth replacement.
Once your implants are in place, your incisions will be sutured and you will rest for a brief time before returning home. Dr. Miranda will review aftercare with you and offer help and suggestions so you have a speedy, painless recovery.
All-on-Four Implants Look and Feel Exactly Like Normal Teeth
Many people who've had denture surgery are left with a "sunken look" caused by loss of bone in the jaw. All-on-Four implants preserve bone by replacing some of the teeth's roots, providing vital support to help preserve facial structure. When the implants are put into place, bone growth around the implant is spurred in a body process called "osseointegration." Osseointegration will not only keep All-on-Four implants secure, but also help to fill out the section of the jaw that may have appeared "sunken" without the support of the bone. This gives All-on-Four smiles the security of a surgical dental implant and the cost-effectiveness of traditional dentures.
Osseointegration takes a few weeks, so a temporary set of dentures is needed until your implants are fully integrated into your natural jawbone structure. When the All-on-Four implants are firmly secured, permanent dentures will be set in place. Dr. Miranda and his team of Orlando dental specialists will be with you at every step.

Replacement teeth and the structural support given by dental implants are so durable you can go home the same day of your procedure with a new set of teeth. Most of Dr. Miranda's patients report only minor soreness the day after the implant.
AFTERCARE FOLLOWING ALL-ON-FOUR IMPLANTS
Recovery after All-on-Four procedure is relatively short. The procedure is minimally invasive, with surface incisions healing quickly. The implants are placed directly onto the bone and secured, leading to less recovery time than other forms of implants that may need months to integrate with the natural bone.
You may need to adopt a light diet of soft foods while your implants settle into place. Strenuous exercise or other activities should be avoided to keep your teeth from moving or shifting during the healing process. Most people will need a couple days off work to recover from the procedure, and soon you will experience an alleviation of any discomfort. Your new teeth will appear straighter and fill in any gaps you had from missing teeth. The implants can be cleaned and maintained the same as your other teeth, and you’ll be able to enjoy your attractive new smile for many years to come.
