The All-on-4® treatment concept, also known as “teeth in a day”, is a procedure where four implants are placed (per arch) that support fixed, non-removable replacement teeth. All of which can be completed in one day.
Dr. Sokol recommends All-on-4® to his patients whom are in jeopardy of losing all their teeth or are unhappy with their conventional dentures. All-on-4® offers patients many advantages:
A cost-effective, efficient treatment option
All-on-4® replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants. With fewer implants needed, overall treatment time is reduced and the fees are less. The All-on-4® treatment concept also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
Faster treatment and healing time
Dr. Dmitry Sokol can place temporary teeth on the same day of your surgery. These provisional (temporary) teeth will look and feel much like natural teeth. After a few weeks of healing, Dr. Sokol can place your final bridge and secure them to the four implants.
Function and Comfort: Traditional Dentures vs All-on-4®
For patients who have lost all of their teeth, or those who find themselves in a position where most of their teeth are failing and need to be removed, Dr. Sokol offers different tooth replacement options.
Traditional dentures are a solution that in many cases has limited success. Traditional dentures can be painful and inconvenient. Because they are “unsecured”, traditional dentures can make chewing foods difficult, which could stop you from eating many of the foods you enjoy.
All-on-4® is an advanced and reliable technique because the prosthetic teeth are attached to the dental implants permanently. These implant supported teeth look and function just like real teeth. They are maintained with the same oral hygiene practices, and allow for normal day to day functions, including speaking, eating, smiling!
The All-on-4® treatment concept can transform the lives of people who are edentulous (completely toothless), and are wearing traditional, removable dentures. It gives them a solution that’s more comfortable and secure.
