If you need a full arch of teeth replaced, then you may be interested in dentures to restore your smile’s function and appearance but looking for a way to ensure that you don’t need to worry about them slipping or falling out. That’s where All-on-4® dental implants come in! This innovative treatment available at the dental practice of Claire Cho, D.D.S. enables patients in the Aliso Viejo, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, Laguna Woods, and nearby CA communities to achieve the stability and longevity of dental implants, combined with the functionality of a full denture – it is the best of both worlds! Even better, the treatment only requires as few as four dental implants to be placed and you can walk out of the office on the same day with a stunning new smile that looks and feels like your normal teeth.
How All-on-4 dental implants work
All-on-4 dental implants are a highly customized approach to replacing a full arch of missing teeth. After getting an in-depth understanding of your current oral health and bone structure, Dr. Cho precisely plans out the location to place four implants that then attach to a temporary or existing denture so you can have a fully functional set of teeth that lay upon a strong, sturdy foundation.
- All-on-4 dental implants are more stable and reliable than traditional dentures, enabling you to enjoy your favorite foods and maintain an easy oral hygiene routine at home
- Recovery is rapid
- Placement of your denture happens on the same day as implant placement, so you don’t have to go for any period of time without teeth
- The treatment has a 98.5% success rate after four years
- Because the implants are strategically placed in the areas of your mouth with the most healthy bone remaining, the technique does not require bone grafting, which is traditionally associated with dental implant placement for patients who have had missing teeth for a long period of time
The All-on-4 treatment process
After getting relaxed and making yourself comfortable in our familiar dental office, we administer a local anesthetic to the areas where the implants will be placed. Then, Dr. Cho places four dental implants into the optimal locations in your jaw for the best stability and long-term results. Finally, we place either a temporary denture or your existing denture on top.
After the dental implants heal and fuse with your jawbone, which can take a few months, we remove your temporary denture and place a permanent custom-designed denture.
