A detailed look at the All on 4® Dental Implant procedure by Richardson, TX dentist Dr. Nish Kapadia.
What are All on 4® Dental Implants?
So the All-on-4 is a option for replacing teeth when you’ve lost all your teeth. All-on-4 usually means that you have about four, maybe six implants in your jaw placed after you’ve lost your teeth. And a bridge is attached to those four to six implants.
When you’ve lost all your teeth, you have the option of a full denture. If you’ve ever had a full denture, you know it’s not going to be quite as comfortable as your natural teeth. You have use a lot of glue to help keep it in.
When you’re eating or chewing on it, it can kind of pop out on you, which can be kind of embarrassing when you’re out at a party or a wedding or anything. The All-on-4 eliminates that. The teeth are screwed in. They’re tied in. They don’t come out. They’re permanent, and the closest thing to natural teeth and the natural chewing function that you can get.
Our Response To Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Although the Governor has rescinded the mask mandate, as a Dental Office we are subject to protocols of the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE). The TSBDE has not lifted its COVID 19 emergency protocols, so masks are still to be worn by patients and staff in the dental practice. We will be continuing all of our COVID safety protocols and respectfully request all patients, staff and vendors wear a mask in our office. Thank you for helping us keep the safest environment possible for our patients and staff.
