Patients are coming to the dental office to inquire about All on Four dental implants in Orlando. The interest for All-on-4® is growing exponentially each year. All-on-4® is a popular procedure that is typically completed in one appointment.
Compared to traditional dental implants, where one implant is equivalent to one missing tooth, All-on-4® uses only four implants strategically placed in your jawbone to hold an entire arch of teeth securely. Here’s what you can expect in a typical All-on-4® procedure.
The first part of the process is the initial consultation. During this stage, your dentist will assess your needs. A few tests, such as CBCT scans and dental x-rays, are made to examine your teeth and jawbone closely.
Your dentist will also ask you about your medical history, existing health problems, and what medications you’re currently taking. All these are necessary to determine if you would make a good candidate for All-on-4. Once you qualify, you’ll be scheduled for your surgery.
For a painless procedure, you will be sedated. Once the effect of the sedative kicks in, your oral surgeon will remove your remaining teeth and create small incisions in your gum tissues to access your jawbone.
The dental implant screws are placed within your jawbone, followed by connectors. Lastly, your gums are sutured back to allow the implant sites to heal. When the bone grows around the implants successfully, your oral surgeon will attach your permanent dentures in place to complete your smile.
The recovery process varies from one person to another. But generally, you will be advised to rest for 72 hours and apply an ice pack over the affected side of your face to minimize swelling. If your dentist prescribed medications like antibiotics and painkillers, take them as directed.
