Your Initial Consultation:
Your initial appointment will include an oral evaluation and 3D CAT Scan, in addition to a discussion of your treatment options. If you are determined to be a candidate for the All on 4 procedure, and most patients are, we will make molds of your upperand lower jaws and take photos that will enable our lab technician to custom design and create the bridge you will be receiving on the day of your scheduled surgery.
The Day of Treatment:
Our friendly staff will greet you and escort you to a private room where we will answer any additional questions, and you will receive your sedative medications which will help you feel completely relaxed and at ease.
Once you are comfortably sedated, you will be completely anesthetized to ensure that you don’t experience any discomfort during your treatment. 4-6 implants will be placed, and your bridge will be fitted. Immediately after surgery you will be taken back to your private recovery room to relax and awaken from the effects of your sedation medications. Once you are feeling more awake, your prosthodontist will put the final touches on your customized implant bridge, adjusting it for comfort, bite and fit.
Our staff will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your teeth. This involves a soft food diet and a list of things to avoid, such as exercise and smoking, which can severely impact the healing and success of your treatment. You will be given prescriptions for pain medication, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory medication.
Most of our patients experience minimal discomfort when they adhere to their post operative protocol. We will see you 10 to 14 days later to check your healing and make any needed adjustments to your bridge, and will schedule additional post-operative check-ups to monitor your healing.
We will allow the implants to heal and integrate in the bone for 3 to 6 months, after which we will start the process of making your definitive bridge, made of highly esthetic and durable materials.
After you new teeth are completed, we will instruct you on the care and maintenance of your new bridge, but it is still important to come back for regular professional cleanings and check-ups.
