All-On-Four® Dental Implants Dallas, TX

All-On-Four® Dental Implants An Overview

Dr. Dean offers the All-on-Four implant dentures procedure at his periodontal office near Dallas, TX. This modern technique offers dental implants for patients who need to replace most or all of their missing teeth.

The All-on-Four implant denture procedure is best for patients that are replacing their lower set of missing teeth. Typically, placing dental implants on the lower jaw is difficult due to anatomical insufficiencies and location of nerves. However, the All-on-4 procedure places dental implants at an angle, avoiding these areas and eliminating the need for bone grafting. This saves time for the dentist and patient, as well as reduces healing downtime and lowers overall budget.

What are All-on-Four Dental Implants?

The All-on-Four technique uses four dental implants to secure a denture. This creates a modern permanent denture that improves function and stability without the worry of issues that come with traditional dentures.

This unique treatment approach can bring back full function without the need for daily maintenance. Other benefits include:

  • No dietary restrictions after placing the final restoration
  • No garbled speech or other speech issues that often accompany traditional dentures
  • Reduce the risk of gum disease
  • No worry of dentures slipping or falling out
  • Improve your chewing ability
  • Improve your oral health for long-term stability

All-on-Four dental implants are a revolutionary type of dental implant procedure that maximizes the use of available bone. Dr. Bradley Dean is a highly trained periodontist with years of experience providing quality results from the comfort of our Dallas periodontal office.

All-On-Four® Dental Implants What to Expect

About the All-on-Four Procedure

The first phase of your treatment is the treatment planning phase at our Dallas periodontal office. Dr. Dean will use 3D CAT Scanning and the Cone Beam Scanner to determine the precise angle and location of the implants. This technique will take advantage of the healthy bone tissue for a secure, lasting result. We can guarantee a precise fit and the best comfort by using digital technology.

Then, Dr. Dean will create molds of your mouth by taking dental impressions. We will use the impressions to fabricate the final restoration. While we wait for the final restoration, Dr. Dean will plan the oral surgery phase where he will remove teeth if applicable and surgically implant the screw-like posts.

On the day of your procedure, Dr. Dean will remove damaged, decayed, or compromised teeth in a comfortable operatory setting using sedation dentistry if applicable. Next, Dr. Dean will place a minimum of 4 dental implant posts, depending on the patient’s needs and specific circumstances. He may also place a temporary dental restoration so that you can still eat and chew normally while you wait for the new All-on-Four implant denture.

Your mouth will take about 3-6 months to heal around the implants. Then you will return to our Dallas periodontal office once the dental implants fully integrate with the jaw bone. Dr. Dean will remove the temporary denture and place the final custom All-on-Four implant denture. This permanent denture will not require special maintenance or replacement every few years.
