How does All-on-4 treatment work?

All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary method for full-arch restoration. This system uses only four dental implants strategically placed in the jawbone. Patients can eat and speak comfortably because it provides a secure and stable foundation for their new teeth.

During treatment, one of our trained dentists will place small titanium posts into your jawbone, which will act as artificial tooth roots. These implants fuse with the bone over time. In the meantime, you will be fitted with temporary dentures to wear while your gums heal. We attach the custom dentures once your mouth has recovered.

What to expect after All-on-4 treatment

It's important to know that everyone responds differently to dental implant surgery. Factors such as age, overall health, and jawbone density can impact the speed of recovery. Some patients feel comfortable with their new teeth within a few weeks, while others need a bit more time to adjust.

In general, however, it can take 4 – 6 months for the implants to integrate with the jawbone. During this time, you may need to make some minor changes to your day-to-day routine and diet. For example, you may want to avoid hard or sticky foods and spend extra time cleaning around the implant sites.

Your new teeth may feel a little bulky or awkward at first, but this feeling should eventually fade as you become more accustomed to them. Our team in Hudson Oaks, TX, can answer any questions you may have about our affordable dental implants.

How long will my All-on-4 implants last?

One of the many advantages of All-on-4 dental implants is their long-term durability. When properly cared for, your new teeth can last a lifetime. However, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene and visit our office for check-ups to ensure the health of your smile.

In addition, factors such as smoking and poor nutrition can also impact the longevity of your full-arch restoration. Always follow our instructions for aftercare and make any necessary lifestyle changes for the best possible results.
