implants The loss of your teeth can make the every day functions we take for granted very difficult. Chewing and even speaking may become an issue for patients missing their teeth. Fortunately, your Allen implant specialist, Dr. Marco Cueva, offers innovative one visit implants. In today’s blog, Dr. Cueva explains how All-on-4 dental implants can restore your smile in as little as one day.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are biocompatible titanium posts inserted directly into the jawbone. There, the bone tissue bonds with the posts, anchoring your implants into place for decades to come. For single tooth replacement, a custom-made crown may be added to the top of the implant post. Dental implants may also be used to secure a partial or full set of dentures. Implants prevent the loss of bone density often associated with missing teeth and return the smile to full function and appearance.

One Visit Implants with All-on-4

Traditional dentures leave a lot to be desired. Often, removable dentures slip during meals or conversation and usually require the use of messy adhesives. All-on-4 implants allow a full set of dentures to be placed on four implant posts. Unlike other implant-retained dentures, All-on-4 requires fewer posts and can be placed on patients with less bone volume. This means you won’t need to undergo bone grafting to support the implants. Once the posts are in place, you will receive a temporary denture the same day while your new restorations are being completed. Once the healing period ends, your final set of teeth will replace the temporary ones. In just a single day, you will have beautiful, complete smile.
