All on Four Dental Implants Carlsbad
Possibly Covered by medical PPO insurance with Blue Cross/Blue Shield
We Offer A 5 Year Guarantee on these Services
This is an explanation of the all on four procedure to replace all teeth with implants and teeth that are fixed by screwing them in to the implants. This procedure is sometimes referred to as teeth in a day. In actuality, there are several visits required before the surgical procedure, which is when the remaining teeth will be removed, implants placed, and an interim screw retained set of teeth are converted by a technician that day and inserted the same day.
Once this is done, an impression is taken so that a complete set of teeth can be made by the lab. In our office, it requires one or two visits to get the records to allow the lab to fabricate the teeth. Once they are made, the surgical appointment can be made, and teeth extracted, implants placed, and new teeth screwed into the implants so they are fixed, and not removeable by the patient.
The permanent final teeth are made about 6 months later after the implants have integrated with the bone and are solid. This is not the end of treatment for the patient. In order for these teeth to last a long time, they require maintenance at home and implant cleaning visits at the dental office twice a year. At one of the yearly visits, the dentists removes the teeth by taking out the screws. This gives access to thoroughly clean and evaluate how the implants are doing. Patients need to be made aware that this is part of their responsibility if they want their implants and new teeth to function for a long time and to be guaranteed. We offer a 5 year guarantee on these services.
