How All-On-Four Provides A Smile In One Day

richmond all-on-four

What if you have lost most or possibly all of your natural teeth? To enjoy your favorite foods again and to smile with confidence, you need a dental prosthetic. With the All-On-Four system, our team can offer a full set of dental implant dentures in only one day. With our team of orthognathic surgery experts in Richmond, VA, teeth-in-a-day are possible!

The Impact of Total Tooth Loss

What happens when we lose most or all of our natural teeth? When this happens, our meal options become severely limited, which in turn deprives us of essential nutrients and our favorite dishes. We could have trouble speaking clearly, which makes social interactions difficult and embarrassing for some. The pressure on the jaw joints from the missing teeth could upset bite balance and leave us vulnerable to TMJ disorder and bruxism. The most severe complication however is the loss of mass and density in the jaw, which happens when the body stops sending key nutrients to the jaw around the missing roots. The jaw breaks down to cause an older appearance and leads to the loss of our remaining teeth. But we can prevent these complications in only one visit with the All-On-Four system!

Starting Care with All-On-Four

As the name implies, the All-On-Four system treats tooth loss with a full set of dentures secured with only four dental implant posts per arch. These implants are designed to require less structure to stay in place, and can stimulate jawbone growth to keep them secure for decades to come, possibly a lifetime. Even if your jaw has lost mass and density, we can support a new smile without the need for grafting or sinus lift procedures beforehand. In one day, you can smile proudly again!

Completing Your New Smile

Once we insert the four dental implants at the specific angles and positions necessary to support a set of dentures, in the same visit we will connect abutments to the posts. These will extend above the gum line and provide structure for us to connect your denture too. The denture is made to look natural and absorb daily bite forces with ease. Once attached, they don’t need to be removed for cleaning or soaking, and instead stay in place and never slip. You have a full row of new teeth that look and function like natural ones.
