More than 40 million Americans are missing all of their upper or lower teeth. It’s a staggering number, but not one that the team at Dental Studios in Summit and Westfield, New Jersey ignores. That’s why Drs. Daniel Butensky and Richard Procopio offer All-on-4®, the cutting-edge implant restoration technology that uses just four supports to replace an entire set of top or bottom teeth. Curious to know more? Call the office, or book a consultation online today.
All-on-4 is the revolutionary implant treatment system the team at Dental Studios uses to replace an entire set of top or bottom teeth. All it takes is four strategically placed dental implants to support a whole set of highly natural-looking prosthetic teeth that can restore your smile.
The team at Dental Studios schedules you for your oral surgery and answers any initial questions you might have about the procedure. During the All-on-4 procedure, you’ll be under general anesthesia to minimize any discomfort.
Your oral surgeon uses a special dental drill to surgically insert the four carefully placed implants directly into your jawbone. Once the implants have been placed, your surgeon will attach temporary prosthetics, so you walk out of the office with a new smile. However, the implants need time to fuse to your healing jawbone before your permanent prosthetics can be placed.
In a few months, once your jawbone has healed, you’ll return to the office to have your permanent prosthetics attached to your All-on-4 implants.
When you’re missing an entire set of top or bottom teeth, it significantly affects everyday functions such as chewing, speech, and digestion. Replacing those missing teeth using the All-on-4 system can help dramatically improve these functions and your overall quality of life.
Also, missing all those teeth can lead to something called “facial drooping.” Your jaw is used to supporting all those teeth. Without them, your jawbone can erode, which leads to lost facial volume. With All-on-4, you can restore lost facial volume, fill out your profile, and enhance your physical appearance.
The beauty of All-on-4 is that it provides you with a virtually permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth. In most cases, All-on-4 patients enjoy a lifetime with replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
It’s important to treat your implant-supported prosthetics just like you would natural teeth. Brush and floss twice a day, and make sure to maintain your regularly scheduled visits with the Dental Studios team. This allows them to monitor the state of your teeth and address preventive care issues when necessary.
