Dental implants are the gold standard when replacing missing teeth, but the process can be lengthy. At Associated Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons in Danbury, Southbury, and Ridgefield, Connecticut, dental implant specialists Roger Badwal, DMD, MD, and Anthony Camillo, DMD, offer patients All-on-4® dental implants. The All-on-4 system uses strategic placement to give you a full set of teeth the same day as your implant surgery, so you don’t have to wait weeks to enjoy your replacement teeth. Call Associated Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons today or book an appointment online to find out if All-on-4 is right for you.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that stabilize prosthetic teeth. All-on-4 uses only four implants in the upper or lower jaw to replace a full arch. You can replace a single arch or all of the teeth in your mouth with All-on-4 dental implants.
Strategically placed implants allow the team at Associated Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons to replace your teeth during your implant surgery.
The traditional dental implant process requires a long-term healing period before you receive your replacement teeth. Since the team places All-on-4 in areas that already have high bone density and then attaches fixed dentures right away, you get to walk out of the office with a full set of teeth in the same day.
During All-on-4 surgery, the team places all four implants at a 45° angle in areas with high bone density, typically eliminating the need for a bone graft. You can opt for a single-arch replacement in the maxillary (upper jawbone), the mandible (lower jawbone), or both.
After surgically placing your implants, the team secures your All-on-4 implants to your fixed dentures.
The best candidates for All-on-4 dental implants have several missing teeth in at least one of their arches. All-on-4 implants are also ideal for individuals with few healthy teeth left in their mouth.
Since bone grafting isn’t necessary for most All-on-4 procedures, patients should have enough healthy bone in their jaw to secure the implants. The team works with a certified restorative dentist to ensure All-on-4 is right for you.
Dental implants can take several weeks to plan and place. The first step involves a complete dental evaluation. The implant surgery team performs a dental exam and teeth cleaning before taking digital X-rays and 3D cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans to view the mouth’s underlying structures.
The team also takes digital impressions using a high-tech intraoral scanner to plan your implant placement and create models for your prosthetic teeth.
Associated Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons is home to an in-office hospital-style suite for advanced sterility and comfort.
After administering an intravenous (IV) anesthetic, the team makes incisions in your gums to place the implants. The team then attaches your custom-made dentures to fully restore your smile after surgery.
