Want a safe and convenient way to replace lost teeth with natural-looking results? Consider the All-On-Four Implants technique at Americas Dental Care, San Jose, Costa Rica!
The All-On-Four Dental Implant technique is a prosthetic and surgical procedure that involves the application of a twelve teeth (bridge) fixed in the jaw (dental prosthesis), based on 4 titanium or gold implants. The technique is permanent, screw-retained and may be performed as a same-day replacement for the entire lower or upper set of teeth.
Titanium vs. Gold Implants
Titanium – is placed when the jaw has natural teeth, a bridge or a denture. Mostly, when the abutment is made of the titanium, the crown placed is made of porcelain. The advantage of Porcelain-fused-to-titanium crowns with a porcelain collar won’t bare the titanium margin at the gum line when the gums recede.
Gold –a gold abutment is advised for patients with strong bites. Porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns with a porcelain collar may also eliminate the gold margin.
The All-On-4 Procedure involves:
1. Tooth or teeth Extraction. (If deemed necessary).
2. Implant insertion. Placement of four dental implants may be performed immediately.
3. Placement of temporary crowns.
4. Placement of permanent crowns. Once the healing period is over usually after 3-6 months, and osseointegration has taken place, the permanent fixed bridge is placed.
