Once surgery is complete, the team of specialists at integratedDENTAL uses digital scanning technology so the final position of the implants can be precisely recorded at the same visit. This data is seamlessly merged with the digital aesthetic smile planning pre-approved by the patient so their new teeth are digitally manufactured right away with CAD/CAM technology from stronger materials than traditional All-On-4® hybrid bridges. The digital treatment steps unique to integratedDENTAL’s All-on-4® Solution allows for a predictable, functional, and cosmetic smile solution to be delivered to the patient in just 24 hours!
Another tremendous benefit to integratedDENTAL’s All-on-4® treatment protocol is that once the implants have fully healed, updated molds are made before the final bridges are manufactured to enhance their fit and comfort. The final All-on-4® bridges offered by integratedDENTAL are digitally manufactured and made of much stronger, longer-lasting, life-like materials so patients can rest assured they can confidently function with their new teeth.
Conventional dental implant treatments involve many appointments rendered by several specialists in different offices resulting in multiple fees at each stage of treatment. At integratedDENTAL, we have one team of highly-trained specialists and an on-site digitally advanced dental laboratory all working in sync to conveniently render all treatment for one flat fee all under one roof.
integratedDENTAL specialists use advanced technology not found in most traditional dental practices to plan your tooth replacement solution in a real 3D environment. A scan of your jaw bones is used to carefully plan your implant surgery to ensure vital anatomical landmarks are not damaged. Our restorative specialists work with and on-site dental laboratory uses the latest digital technologies in the fabrication of each patient’s new smile. This allows our patients to leave their implant treatment visit with fully functioning teeth all in just one day.
integratedDENTAL understands that some patients require more than just local anesthesia to be comfortable with the idea of undergoing a dental implant procedure. Accordingly, we offer full IV sedation services provided by certified doctors to ensure your experience is as pleasant as possible.
Say goodbye to your denture! You will leave this visit with your implants supporting a new set of teeth fixed in place that look, feel, and function just like real teeth. A critical part of our treatment is following post-operative instructions and returning for regular check-ups while the implants are healing to make sure your recovery is progressing as expected. Rest assured there is no additional fee for these visits with our team to monitor your recovery process.
The All-On-4® implant treatment was an excellent treatment option for patients who required most or all of their missing teeth to be replaced. This technique involved the placement of as few as 4 dental implants at appropriate mechanical inclinations to maximize fixed support for a full arch of teeth. It dramatically improved a patient’s quality of life by avoiding the need for an uncomfortable denture.
All-On-4® implants was a much improved treatment alternative for patients who had been stuck in the past with dentures due to finances or anatomical challenges. Traditionally, the placement of up to 8-10 implants per jaw was necessary to restore patients with a fixed bridge instead of a denture. To place this large number of implants, patients often had to have additional extensive bone grafting procedures which further added to the high cost of treatment. With the All-On-4® concept, the placement of 2 back implants at up to a 45° angulation along with conventional placement of usually 2 implants in the front provided enough support for a fixed bridge while avoiding the need for extensive bone grafting. This helped to minimize surgical procedures and costs associated with treatment.
While the surgical concepts used for the All-On-4® treatment are still useful today, the traditional methods of prosthetically restoring it are riddled with problems. Specifically, the vast majority of offices offering an All-On-4® style of treatment provide patients with hybrid bridges as the final prosthesis. These bridges have plastic teeth glued onto a metal bar. The bond of these teeth to the metal bar is unpredictable in the longterm and the plastic teeth themselves are prone to fracture after prolonged wear. Often these style bridges fail because of teeth popping or breaking off.
The result is an All-On-4® prosthesis that is very high-maintenance, requiring multiple repairs and possibly the need for frequent replacement all at an added expense to the patient. This is very frustrating for patients because after spending significant finances on the All-On-4® style treatment they are required to invest more money in the continued maintenance of their bridges. So just because an office advertises they offer an All-On-4® style treatment, make sure to ask what type of bridge will be designed and how long can one expect it to be in service.
