All-on-4™ | Teeth in a day at Boisson Dental
Boisson Dental Group is the only dental practice in Grande Prairie that offers All-on-4™ treatment. The All-on-4® treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graft-less solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
This procedure is an effective treatment for restoring the appearance and function of a patient’s mouth when multiple teeth are missing, or when teeth need to be extracted due to deep decay or damage from gum disease.
The All-on-4 system consists of custom-made restorations that are affixed to a series of four dental implants. The dental implants serve as a firm foundation for the restoration to be affixed to. Unlike removable full or partial dentures, All-on-4™ is a permanent solution to missing teeth.
All-on-4™ is often referred to as ‘Teeth in one day’, due to the fact that dramatic changes in a patient’s smile can be accomplished in a short period of time. The treatment works by inserting four titanium implants into the gum line of either the upper or lower jaw, wherever there are missing teeth. The gums will need some time to heal after the implants are inserted, but in some cases temporary teeth can be placed over the implants during the healing time. During this time, permanent teeth will be custom created for the patient in a dental lab.
The restoration is designed to closely mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. The prosthetic teeth will function exactly the same as natural teeth do and will need to be cleaned and cared for in much the same way. The implants will also work to maintain the size of the jaw in patients who are missing all of their teeth by preventing the jawbone from shrinking, which can happen with the older style removable dentures.
The All-on-4™ method is often more cost effective than doing individual implants would be. Healing time is also quicker, and patients can get on with their lives with a fully- functioning mouth after the procedure is done. Boisson Dental Group is proud to offer this revolutionary treatment to our patients.
