Thanks to advances in dental technology, patients can now replace an entire arch of teeth with just four simple implants. All-on-4® dental implants from Nobel Biocare® securely replace severely damaged or decayed teeth through a natural-looking full arch appliance. At Made Ya Smile Dental, Dr. Jireh Yue is proud to provide the All-on-4 system to individuals with extensive tooth loss or unsalvageable teeth in either the upper or lower arches. This state-of-the-art restoration allows you to enjoy eating your favorite food with a comfortable, gorgeous smile that won't slip out of place or cause discomfort. If you are looking for a long-term solution for missing teeth, now you can receive lasting benefits for your oral health. We invite you to schedule a consultation at our friendly practice in Houston, TX.
Patients can receive a radiant smile with All-on-4 dental implants for the upper or lower arches. This technology uses four dental implants placed within your jawbone along with a full arch appliance that is custom-created for your specific facial shape and jaw. Ideal candidates for this treatment have lost an entire arch of teeth and need a strong tooth replacement solution to restore their biting function. If you have dentures and would like a more permanent appliance that doesn't require denture paste or adhesives, this procedure may be right for you.
Unlike other implants, All-on-4 is suitable for patients who have experienced bone loss in the jaw and does not require a special cleaning solution to maintain. Dr. Yue recommends this treatment for patients who want a stronger, more confident smile without limits. This means there are no more restrictions on the food you eat at home. This procedure is completed in just one day, so you can see and enjoy your results immediately after your visit. Set up a consultation at our practice if you would like to learn about the benefits of All-on-4 dental implants.
What to Expect
To plan for your best results, Made Ya Smile Dental will take 3D intraoral images of your mouth and jaw. This technology gives our team detailed information about your oral structures and jawbone so we know exactly where to place the four implants. Patients who are anxious about receiving dental treatment can choose between one of several sedation options to make their procedure more comfortable and stress-free. On the day of your appointment, we will numb the area completely before making the incisions and placing the implants in your jawbone. After the surgery, we will offer a temporary tooth replacement for immediate function and aesthetic appeal until the implants fully integrate with your jaw, a process called osseointegration. After about 3 — 6 months, we will have you return to our clinic so that we can attach the permanent appliance to your All-on-4 implants and make any adjustments as necessary.
Receiving dental implants at Made Ya Smile Dental is an efficient and relatively minimally invasive process. Immediately after surgery, however, you may notice some discomfort or swelling in the face and jaw. Our staff can recommend using over-the-counter pain relievers to make your recovery more comfortable. We will also give you instructions for cleaning and taking care of your teeth during the recovery process. As an additional benefit, All-on-4 dental implants are cared for similarly to natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing techniques. When you schedule routine dental examinations and cleanings at our facility, Dr. Yue will continue to monitor the health of your jaw and implant sites to make sure the tooth replacement solution is still meeting your oral health requirements.
Made Ya Smile Dental gladly accepts most PPO dental insurance plans and can conveniently submit claims on your behalf. A member of our team will reach out to your provider for specific details and potential out-of-pocket costs. To give every patient the smile solution they need for a better quality of life, we can help you find a payment solution to meet your budget. Our administrative team can review our payment options and can offer you information on third-party financing solutions with low interest rates.
