The All on 4 and All on 5 Dental Implant Procedure uses five implants, with the back implants angulated to take maximum advantage of existing bone. Special implants also were developed that could support the immediate fitting of replacement teeth. This treatment is attractive to those with dentures or in need of full upper and/or lower restorations. The patient comes to the office in the morning with unhealthy (or no) teeth, and leaves in the afternoon with a beautiful set of fixed, functional teeth.
With the All on 4 and All on 5 procedures, qualified patients receive just four implants and a full set of new replacement teeth in just one appointment. The real appeal is how quickly permanent implants can be placed so that patients can leave the same day with fixed, non-removable replacement teeth.
- With the All on 4 and All on 5 Dental Implant Procedure, the patient has one or two visits to his/her general dentist office to allow them to gather information for a treatment plan (e.g., X-rays, impressions, photos).
- Dr Khoury will also gather some information including a CT scan to diagnose, plan the dental implants and their location, and then make surgical guides, and the patient is then scheduled for surgery by Dr. Khoury
- The same day or the next day, the new *temporary fixed* teeth are then fitted by your general dentist if there one availableThe patient will return for occasional check-ups over the next several weeks and months.
- After almost four-six months, when the gums have fully healed and the implants are fused to the natural bone, your general dentist will take new impressions of the patients mouth and prepare a final, stronger, *permanent * set of teeth. This helps ensure that the teeth will last for decades, and provide maximum support, beauty, and function to the patient.
