Process of All-on-4
To ensure you are a candidate for dental implants in Longmont, you need an initial consultation to assess your jawbone. Besides a visual exam, CT scans are used to pinpoint the precise location for your posts. Depending on the results of the exam, you may need additional procedures before having your implant posts placed, such as bone grafting or tooth extractions. After your implant posts are inserted into your jaw, your denture is attached the same day, so you do not need to go without your teeth.
What to Expect
You will require sedation or anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Your gum tissue is opened to expose your jawbone. 4 holes are drilled into it to place your posts. Abutments are connected to the post to attached your natural-looking restoration before you leave our office.
It is normal to experience some pain, swelling, and bleeding for a few days after your treatment. It is best to stick to a soft diet to allow your jawbone to heal. In no time at all, you will enjoy your favorite foods again while speaking and smiling with confidence.
How to Care for All-on-4
With the right aftercare, your dental implants can last for several decades. The biggest threat to the longevity of your new smile is an infection. To prevent it from occurring, brush your denture twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. An interdental brush is effective and well-designed for cleaning around the implant posts and abutments. Floss under the denture at least once a day. This can be challenging, so you may find a Waterpik to be easier and more effective.
