This technique is an excellent option for those patients who desire to have fixed dental implant dentures as opposed to having to remove dentures. The All-on-4 provides trained Houston implant dentists an efficient and fixed restoration only using four implants to support an immediately loaded full arch fixed denture. This means that the day the implants are placed you will have a fixed prosthesis in place. This is where the term teeth in a day was born. The term "Teeth in a Day" is not exactly what is says. To be able to perform this procedure, proper and thorough planning is necessary prior to the implant placement and "teeth in day" placement. It is truly an excellent option when properly used. This technique is really beneficial to patients who have a lot of bone loss and to place dental implants would require exetnsive bone grafting, sinus lifts, and a longer time frame to acheive desired results. In our office, when we utilize this procedure, we have a complete team together: dental implant surgeon, restorative dentist, and our lab technician. Our team planning and care makes this All-on-4 work very successfully. Additionally, the Houston cosmetic dentistry aspect is very important. There are many styles and types of teeth that can be used. No two patients are alike and the smile design is, in my opinion, an integral part of the success of the case. If you have any questions about Houston Implant Dentistry or Houston Cosmetic Dentistry, please feel free to call our office, Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF, 713-668-2289.
