Houston Prosthodontic Associates has good news if you’re at all nervous about seeking the dental care you deserve. We’re here with the solutions you need to help you chew, speak, and smile with confidence again. We’re proud to use the latest dental technology to offer a quick solution for patients with few to no natural teeth left. If this describes you, it might be time for an appointment in our Houston, TX, office to consider the All-on-4 dental implants for new teeth in a single day!
To give you a full new smile in just a day, we use a prosthodontic treatment called All-on-4 dental implants. All-on-4 implants replace your missing teeth with a full dental bridge. This permanent bridge holds custom-fabricated false teeth to replace your missing natural teeth.
On the surface, the procedure seems similar to full dentures. This is not the case. All-on-4 implants are supported by just four dental implants, instead of a removable denture set that needs to be frequently adjusted and cleaned or individual implants that require one complete implant per replaced tooth.
While the implants are being placed, our team will create a custom bridge with replacement teeth to attach to the implants. This gives you a complete smile immediately, and you won’t have to undergo the implantation of a separate screw for each missing tooth. After receiving our All-on-4 implants, your quality of life will be improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again!
Dental patients who have lost most of their natural teeth due to injury or disease can choose All-on-4 implants as an alternative to traditional dentures. In our office, we’ll start with a short consultation visit and use digital imaging technology to evaluate if your teeth, jaw, and gums make you a good candidate for dental implants.
When you choose Houston Prosthodontic Associates, you’re choosing a partner in dental health care. We have the expertise to create a personalized treatment plan and have the resources right in our office, like an on-site laboratory, to make procedures faster and more convenient. Even after receiving dental implants, we have an on-staff dental hygienist and offer emergency appointments to ensure that we’re always able to help you maintain your smile.
To learn more about getting new teeth in a day or any of our other restorative prosthodontic treatment options, please call our Houston, TX, Prosthodontic office today and schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Gittleman.
After your initial consultation, you’ll schedule the minor surgical All-on-4 procedure on a convenient day. Using mild sedation or local anesthetic so you don’t feel pain or boredom during treatment, Dr. Gittleman will place all four dental implants at once. Typically, after placement, we provide temporary same-day crowns to immediately restore your teeth following the surgery. You’ll be able to eat and speak normally right away.
For a few days after surgery, avoid rinsing, spitting, or anything that might aggravate the incisions for faster healing. For the first 24 hours, drink plenty of water and use an ice pack on your cheek for 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling. Follow instructions from our team about gently brushing or rinsing as your incisions begin to heal.
While you continue to recover, we’ll create a permanent bridge of individually shaped and colored replacement teeth at
