All-On-Four Dental Implants

Canyon Lakes Dentistry
Dr. Tito Molina

We no longer need to use a single implant for each missing tooth but four implants at the bottom and on the top to fix the dentures. Your dentist can put dentures on these areas.

The cost of All-On-4 dental implants may vary depending on the materials used, the number of missing teeth that need to be replaced, and the coverage of your dental insurance plan. The standard All-On-4 dental implant options include acrylic dentures built around a titanium frame.

Getting a dental implant for the first time can be daunting. You may worry that this process will bring pain and uncertainty. The method of obtaining All-On-4 dental implants is divided into four steps:

We will make sure you feel comfortable and perform local or general anesthesia.

Our dentists’ team creates dental implants for your mouth and removes any remaining teeth that have broken along any diseased or infected tissue from your jaw and gums.

We will begin the process by inserting titanium screws into your jawbone. We usually place the two implants towards the front of the mouth and the two implants towards the back of the mouth to evenly share the bite force exerted on the denture.

Dr. Molina will clean the surgical site and suture your incisions after your implants are placed. You will then go to a recovery room where you can relax and wake up from the anesthesia.

Therefore, the complete All-On-4 dental implant procedure includes anesthesia, surgical site preparation, implant placement, and postoperative cleaning and sutures.

The recovery time after a traditional implant-supported denture restoration maybe 3 to 12 months, but after obtaining an All-On-4 denture, the implant is fused to your bones and provides stable stability for the denture. It would be best if you recovered soon. You can start to see the recovery from the following situations:

After completing this step, you need to rest, avoid bending over, lifting heavy objects, or performing any strenuous activities, which may cause more bleeding and swelling.

If you usually exercise, you need to avoid exercise for three or four days after the operation. Remember to rest, treat the pain with medication prescribed by your dentist, and eat soft, easy-to-chew foods. Avoid eating hard foods, sweets, or scorching foods. If you still don’t feel your tongue, avoid chewing. We recommend that you only drink liquid or pure food for the first few days after surgery.

In addition to offering all on four dental implants in Katy, TX, we also provide sleep apnea treatment, Invisalign, cosmetic dentistry, and a wide range of additional dental services.
