Only Six Steps to Your Best Smile
At Dream Dental Services, we are happy to offer a comprehensive solution to problem teeth with All-on-4 dental implants in Altamonte Springs, FL, and the Orlando and Castlebury, FL, areas. All-on-4 dental implants are an effective way to obtain an entire makeover of your mouth.
What Are All-on-4 Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants provide a complete set of artificial teeth without the difficulty of individually implanting every single tooth. Instead, your teeth will be strategically placed in your mouth with only four implants.
The All-on-4 implant process is completed in six steps, as explained in detail below.
1. First Visit: Consultation & Treatment Plan
Your first visit with Dr. Ouellette will be a consultation where you’ll discuss your needs and he’ll review your oral health to determine if you’re a candidate.
Once determined, he’ll take digital, 3D scans of your facial structure and teeth, and create a detailed treatment plan for you.
2. Second Visit: Surgery Day
On the day of your surgery, you’ll arrive at our office for the procedure. Dr. Ouellette will perform any tooth extractions necessary and place the implants into your jaw. The night after surgery, you’ll be without teeth while the custom-milled healing teeth are being created.
3. Third Visit: Install Healing Arch
On the day following surgery, you’ll return to our office for the installation of your custom-milled healing arch, which is reinforced with titanium for strength. This arch is designed to perfectly fit your jaw and look 100% natural.
The healing arch aids in the healing process as the implants installed by Dr. Ouellette fully seat during the next three to four months. The arch helps eliminate the micro-movements that can cause implants to become unstable and ensures optimal performance.
4. Fourth Visit: Create New Digital Impressions Using iTero
Once the arch is installed, we’ll do a detailed oral scan using our iTero scanner to confirm placement and get details to watch over the course of the next few months during the healing process.
5. Three to Four Months Later: Permanent Zirconia Arch
Since dental implants take three to four months to fully set into your jawbone, we’ll watch the progress and match it to your iTero scan. Once the esthetics are confirmed and fitment is assured, we’ll design and craft your permanent teeth from premium Zirconia, which closely matches the look and feel of natural bone and teeth with ideal translucency, fit, and finish. Your new teeth are not only beautiful but durable and designed to last a lifetime.
6. Six Months Later: Treatment Assessment
A critical step in the process is to confirm the implants are remaining integrated and to do a thorough cleaning of your new arch every six months.
Just like regular cleanings of your natural teeth, it’s important to see Dr. Ouellette so you can have the teeth removed, cleaned thoroughly, and the implants checked to ensure they last a lifetime as intended.
