All on Four® & All on Six® Dental Implants in Long Island
There really is no substitute for a full, beautiful smile when it comes to presenting yourself in the best possible light. That is why dental problems and tooth loss can be truly unsettling for one’s self-esteem. If you have already lost many of your original teeth, currently wear dentures but are uncomfortable with them, or have been informed by your dentist that tooth loss due to advanced gum disease is in your immediate future, the All on 4® dental treatment protocol may be just the solution for you. We at Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry invite you to schedule a consultation to learn more about the advantages same day dental implants can offer.
The All on Four® implant protocol and preparation
The implant technique known as All on 4® (and All on Six®) is a groundbreaking procedure that provides certain types of patients the opportunity to receive new, permanently fixed teeth that are essentially identical in appearance to natural teeth. This method can even be used to treat individuals affected by advanced degrees of bone loss that may have prevented conventional implants from being a viable option. What makes All on 4® truly remarkable is the fact that for most patients, the process can be completed in just one visit to our Rocky Point, Long Island office.
Our team of specially trained cosmetic dentists and support staff can provide you with new teeth in one day, thanks to this revolutionary alternative. Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot are ready to put you back in charge of your dental health and restore both your self-image and outward appearance.
The All on 4® process always begins with a personal consultation with Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot. We will develop a customized treatment plan and discuss any questions or concerns you might have. In contrast to traditional dental implant techniques, the All on 4® protocol rarely requires any bone grafting to be done in advance. The result is a procedure that costs far less, is much more convenient and is nowhere near as painful or invasive as conventional methods.
The All on 4® dental implant procedure
While the concept is extraordinarily innovative, the process of placing same day dental implants is actually quite straightforward. Dr. Nick or Dr. Elliot will secure your customized dental bridge to four or six implant posts, depending on the recommendation of the dentists and patient’s ability to withstand the additional posts.
3D imaging helps determine the most effective placement of the implants, which are angled in such a way as to:
- Prevent damage to the nerve canal and sinus cavity
- Provide optimal support for the new bridge, even when bone volume is lacking
- Give patients fixed, prosthetic teeth without having to perform bone grafts
The extreme angulation of the two posterior implants allow even those individuals who have experienced significant bone loss due to gum disease, tooth loss or atrophy of the mandible to receive one day dental implants that are extremely stable, fully functional and indistinguishable from a healthy set of natural teeth.
