Restore your smile after tooth loss with All-on-4 Dental Implants
Tooth loss affects so much more than the appearance of your smile. It can negatively impact your eating and speaking correctly, oral health, overall facial appearance, and self-confidence. If you have lost all your teeth and live in the Burien, Washington area, the revolutionary All-on-4® dental implant system at Kenner Dental Group can restore your entire dental arch with as few as four dental implants in just one visit.
What is All-on-4?
Over the past few decades, patients and dentists alike have discovered the many benefits of dental implants after tooth loss. While other tooth replacement alternatives such as bridges and dentures effectively replace the visible portion of the tooth (the crown), an implant takes tooth replacement one step farther by replacing the missing tooth root. That provides several benefits in terms of functionality and long-term oral health. However, for patients who have experienced the loss of an entire arch of teeth, it is typically not financially or physically viable to replace each missing tooth with an implant. That’s where All-on-4 comes in!
The All-on-4 dental implant system enables us to replace an entire dental arch with just four dental implants, then topped with a custom-made denture. The procedure can be completed in just one visit with local anesthesia to keep you comfortable in many cases.
The All-on-4 implant process
We know that choosing your tooth replacement options is a big decision, and we are here to help guide you through the process.
- In your consultation, Dr. Kenner will perform a detailed examination and talk with you at length about your dental history to ensure that the All-on-4 implants will work for your needs.
- We will also take digital scans of your jawbone and facial structures, which provide Dr. Kenner critical information (such as the location of your nerves and sinuses) for planning the optimal location for your implants.
- To place your implants, Dr. Kenner will first administer a local anesthetic to keep you pain-free throughout the procedure. Then, the implants will be surgically placed into your jawbone.
- Your new custom-made denture is then attached to the implants.
We will give you thorough after-care instructions to help ensure that the recovery process goes smoothly after your treatment. And will provide follow-up care at regular intervals after your implant placement to ensure that your mouth is healing correctly and your new All-on-4 denture is functioning optimally.
