In the past, when a patient lost teeth through trauma, disease, or extraction and opted to have dental implants, they would most often need to be referred to an oral surgeon. The surgeon would place the implants and send the patient back to the regular dentist to have the teeth placed on the implants.
But with All-on-4 and our in-house lab, you can arrive in our office with missing or unhealthy teeth and leave with beautiful, functioning teeth – all in the same day! The implant posts are made of titanium, so they eventually fuse with the jawbone, making for strong support and preventing future bone loss that causes a sunken, aged appearance. Immediate load implants can withstand pressure immediately without having to wait for the bone to heal around them, so you get to have a beautifully complete smile right away.
