Benefits of All on 4 dental implants
Modern dentistry can offer several ways to replace missing teeth, but one stands out as clearly superior in most cases. That is dental implants treatment, which most dentists (and patients) consider the gold standard. However, the cost and lengthy treatment can be daunting for individuals who are missing all teeth in an arch. That is, unless you are considering All-on-4 dental implants. This treatment, available from Washington Street Dentistry in Indianapolis is a minimally invasive full arch restoration.
The All-on-4 difference
As the name implies, this technique only requires four implants to support a full-arch restoration. Benefits include:
- Economical – Fewer implants minimize the cost of treatment
- Efficient – Implants are placed at precision angles to utilize available bone tissue and avoid prerequisite grafting
- Fast recovery – Most people experience minimal post-surgery discomfort and can resume normal activities within a few days
- Amazing smile – Our restorations are beautifully designed for a dazzling, natural appearance
About the procedure
Step one is precision planning. Dr. Church will take impressions, photographs, CT scans, and other diagnostics. He will also discuss your goals and aesthetic preferences. This information is used to plan the implant placement surgery and redesign your new smile.
The next step is complete smile restoration in one appointment. Extractions are performed if needed, the implants are placed, and the temporary prosthesis is attached. You will leave our office with a dazzling smile and fully functional teeth. Once the bone is healed and attached to the implants, your temporary restoration will be replaced with the permanent one. Throughout the process, you won’t have to spend a single “toothless” day.
Why choose All-on-4 from Washington Street DentistryThe key to successful treatment with so few implants is absolute precision in placement and restoral techniques. Dr. Church is an experienced implantologist, member of the ACOI (American College of Oral Implantology), graduate of Misch International Implant Institute Surgical Program, and Fellow of ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantologists). He is well known for creating spectacular smiles that can last a lifetime. Just call us at (317) 333-6788 for an appointment.
