For men and women who are missing most or all of their natural teeth, the thought of a completely restored and beautiful smile may seem like the stuff of dreams. For these individuals, the ability to chew foods properly and speak clearly has become a thing of the past. While removable dentures may prove a sufficient solution for some of these patients, dealing with ill-fitting prosthetics can negatively impact quality of life on a daily basis. At the Milwaukee, WIprosthodontic office of Dr. Barry R. Franzen, replacing missing teeth is our area of expertise. One of the ways that we help our patients smile and enjoy their lives again is the revolutionary solution known as All-on-4 dental implants.
Teeth in a Day: All-on-4 Dental Implants in Milwaukee, WI
With the All-on-4 dental implants procedure, it truly is possible to go from completely or nearly toothless (edentulous) to a whole smile in just one day. This is because the All-on-4 procedure utilizes the latest in dental implant technology, relying on four strategically positioned implants to support a full arch of beautifully crafted replacement teeth. The entire procedure is performed while the patient is fully sedated, so there is no discomfort associated with the surgery. When the sedation has worn off, the patient awakens to a new set of teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. You should see the tears of joy and disbelief as our All-on-4 patients see their complete smiles for the first time in years!
Following your All-on-4 procedure, your gums and jaw will heal for a period of a few months while osseointegration occurs. This is the process by which the bone in your jaw fuses with your new implants, creating a solid foundation that is as strong as or even stronger than your natural dentition. Then you’ll return to Dr. Franzen to receive your permanent set of replacement teeth, a fixed prosthetic that is custom-crafted just for you to create a luminous, healthy smile you’ll absolutely love.
