With All-on-4 dental implants, restore the full function and appearance of your teeth. María Cuadrado Dental Clinic has earned an exceptional reputation due to its outstanding specialization in the revolutionary “All-on-4” dental treatment. Find out how in our comprehensive guide.
What is the “All-on-4” treatment?
“All-on-4” is an innovative solution for those who have lost most, if not all, of their teeth. Instead of using an implant for each lost tooth, this treatment uses only four titanium implants to support a full dental prosthesis.
It is a less invasive and more efficient alternative to traditional dental implants, offering patients the possibility of having a completely new smile in just one day.
Procedure of the “All-on-4” treatment
Initial consultation and evaluation
The treatment process begins with an initial consultation at María Cuadrado Dental Clinic. During this meeting, Dr. María Cuadrado and her team will assess your oral health and discuss your dental goals. This is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
Once your suitability for the treatment has been confirmed, the team will create a customized treatment plan for you. This involves a detailed study of your mouth structure using advanced diagnostic technology, allowing precise placement of the implants.
The “All-on-4” procedure involves placing four titanium implants in the jawbone. These implants act as anchors for a full dental prosthesis. Two implants are placed at the front of the mouth, and two are placed at the back, angled to take advantage of the existing bone structure. The procedure is carried out under anesthesia to ensure comfort.
After the procedure, you will need some time to recover. You might experience some swelling and discomfort, but this is normal and temporary. Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided by the clinic to ensure a smooth recovery.
Benefits of the “All-on-4” treatment
There are many benefits to the “All-on-4” treatment. Firstly, it provides an efficient solution for extensive tooth loss, improving oral function and aesthetics. It is also a minimally invasive procedure compared to traditional dental implants, with a shorter recovery time. The treatment can significantly improve quality of life by restoring confidence and a natural-looking smile.
Comparison between “All-on-4” and other dental treatments
Compared to other dental treatments, “All-on-4” stands out for its efficiency and transformative results. Traditional dentures can often be uncomfortable and unstable, while individual dental implants might require more extensive surgery and a longer recovery time. “All-on-4”, on the other hand, provides a stable and comfortable solution with fewer implants and less surgical intervention.
Postoperative care of “All-on-4”
Postoperative care for “All-on-4” involves regular cleaning of the prosthesis and maintaining good oral hygiene. Regular check-ups at María Cuadrado Dental Clinic will also be essential to ensure the longevity of your new smile.
