All-on-4: Revolutionary Restorative Dental Care
If you’re considering All-on-4 dental implants, our team is here to help. Dr. Pinero has performed many All-on-4 implant procedures for patients in Coral Springs, Parkland, and beyond and they are thrilled with the results. We pay close attention to the details in order to create a one-of-a-kind solution that feels natural and restores your beautiful smile.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants give you a brand new smile after a single office visit. Also known as Teeth in a Day, this treatment concept rehabilitates an arch by strategically placing four dental implants into the jawbone to anchor a permanent fixed denture.
Implant-retained dentures like All-on-4 have many advantages over traditional dentures. The implant posts fuse with the jaw, which stimulates bone regeneration to maintain jaw strength and provide a more youthful appearance by preventing facial collapse.
Implant-retained dentures are secure and won’t slip, making them more comfortable and allowing you to eat and speak without worry.
The Teeth in a Day Process
First, Dr. Pinero evaluates your jawbone to ensure it has the density needed to support dental implants. Next, we take a closer look at your mouth and jaw to plan where to place your implants. After this careful planning, Dr. Pinero will surgically place the dental implants, then attach a temporary denture to them so you can leave our office with new teeth on the same day as your surgery. Later, you will receive permanent dentures.
During the six to eight week healing process, we recommend eating soft foods and being gentle with your new teeth so you don’t suffer any setbacks before receiving your permanent denture.
