All-On-Four® Dental ImplantsAn Overview
Imagine waking up in the morning with dentures and going to bed that same night, with permanent teeth. Then, imagine that it could be done without incisions or stitches, and the whole procedure is finished in only a few hours.
Teeth that do not come out but are anchored in place. A natural-looking and feeling new smile, just like the one that you dreamed of having again. Imagine no more because, for many people, this is the new reality at East Hills Dental Associates. Thanks to advanced computer-guided treatment planning and surgical techniques, Dr. Richard Sousa can provide patients with immediate load implant restorations. All on four dental implants are a restorative dentistry treatment Dr. Sousa offers to the residents of Long Island.
Teeth In One Day
The Bar Attachment Denture technique utilizes four dental implants to attach your new set of permanent replacement teeth. The implants used in this procedure are specially designed for immediate function and typically do not require bone grafting. In most cases, patients lacking the bone volume required to support traditional implants are able to enjoy the many benefits of a permanent solution to missing teeth with this procedure.
This technique opens the door to dental implants for a wider range of patients, including those who have been told they do not have enough healthy jaw bone for traditional implants. Using implants to secure a denture provides many benefits for both oral health and quality of life:
- Stabilizes existing jaw bone to maintain the structure of the lower face
- Minimizes risk of periodontal disease as a result of shifting teeth or an ill-fitting oral appliance
- Restores the ability to enjoy a varied, healthy diet without restrictions
- Allows normal, confident speech
- No need for daily adhesives- your new smile can be brushed like natural teeth
An added benefit of the Bar Attachment Denture process is minimal downtime. This technique delivers the maximum results in the shortest time with minimal discomfort. Most patients experience only minor soreness the next day and can eat a light meal that same evening. In most cases, you may even return to work the next day.
