Dentist in Chandler Explains What You Should Know About All-on-4 Dental Implants
“Teeth in a day” is possible with All-on-Four® dental implants in Chandler. This procedure provides patients with a permanent, full arch of teeth in the upper or lower jaw (or both) using only four precisely placed dental implants.
All-on-Four treatment can quickly change a patient’s quality of life. The full arch prosthetic appears, feels, and functions like a set of natural teeth. Patients will be able to speak, eat, and smile as they normally would the very same day they receive the implants.
Dental Implants in Chandler
Implants benefit the jawbone because they work like natural tooth roots would. Titanium implants in the jawbone stimulate bone health from the force of chewing. This prevents bone mass loss and how it affects one’s facial appearance due to resorption.
Digital Treatment Planning
To digitally plan your treatment case, the dentist at Mark Arooni DDS will use imaging machines, such as a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) x-ray machine and an intraoral scanner, to created detailed three-dimensional images of the soft and hard tissues of the mouth. Using these images, the dentist will create a surgical guide for use during the implant surgery. Additionally, the image files help the dentist anticipate circumstances unique to your case, such as oral health conditions that might affect the healing process, or whether you will need a different type of treatment due to bone loss.
Because implants work best when placed in the densest part of the jawbone, digital treatment planning sets you up for optimal results.
Implant surgery typically takes a few hours, and you can opt for sedation during the procedure. Using the information from the images taken during treatment planning, your dentist in Chandler will place each implant strategically so that it will integrate with the jawbone and remain effective. Osseointegration, the process of the implant and jawbone integrating, takes place during the healing process and ensures healthy bone regeneration or growth to correct any bone loss from prolonged missing teeth.
Dr. Arooni and team at Mark Arooni DDS will instruct you on how to take care of your new smile to avoid gum disease or any issues related to implant longevity. One of the benefits of All-on-Four implants is that the teeth part of the prosthetic will be resistant to decay, unlike one’s natural teeth. Despite that, you will need to brush and floss as you usually would to preserve the appearance and strength of your new teeth.
The differences between All-on-Four implants and other tooth replacements are in the method, procedure, and results.
The two implants placed at the anterior, or front, of the mouth will go into the strongest part of the jawbone there.
Dr. Arooni will then place the two posterior, or back, implants at an angle to utilize the healthiest jawbone tissue and make sure pressure is distributed evenly across the arch.
The All-on-Four implant procedure in Chandler takes a few hours, and you will leave with temporary teeth attached to the implants the same day of the surgery, hence the additional treatment name of “teeth in a day.” The permanent arch will be placed after osseointegration.
All-on-Four implants enable you to eat the food you desire, no matter how sticky or crunchy, smile without worry that your dentures will slip, and rest assured that they can last a lifetime with proper care.
