This revolutionary dental implant procedure is one of today’s most advanced technologies in the field of dental restoration.
A full set of upper and/or lower replacement teeth are permanently attached in the patient’s mouth, anchored by only (a minimum of) four dental implants (see illustration below). If you’re currently struggling with uncomfortable, loose-fitting dentures that have to be removed for cleaning, or are desperately holding on to failing teeth, this treatment option comes as close to feeling, functioning and looking like your real teeth as possible.
With only four dental implants normally required for a full upper or lower arch, the All-on-4® (also known as ProArch® or TeethToday® full-arch system) is generally more affordable than other tooth replacement options.
This procedure normally avoids expensive, traumatic bone grafting and requires only a minimum amount of “downtime.” Patients receive replacement teeth the same day as their implant surgery.
After the procedure is completed, the patient leaves our Boca Raton periodontal office with a fully functional set of natural-looking teeth that look beautiful. While we do not complete the final ceramic or resin restorations, we work with your dentist or will recommend one of our colleagues to complete the process 3-6 months after implant placement. Biting and chewing may be restricted for the first 1-2 months while implants mature, but they will look and feel great.
The All-On-4®/Pro-Arch® full arch dental implant treatment option offers many benefits, including:
All-on-4®/Pro-Arch® full arch treatment is a cost-effective, proven solution for people who struggle with failing teeth, unsightly partial or ill-fitting painful dentures or are completely edentulous (have no teeth). This treatment option is also ideal for individuals who have low bone density or have already experienced bone loss in the jaw.
At the South Florida Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we can change your life by replacing failing or missing teeth or dentures with this advanced fixed dental implant option that offers outstanding functionality and provides you with a beautiful new smile.
