With today’s advancement in modern technology, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants for a permanent, stable, and highly aesthetic result. This is typically referred to as the “All-on-4” technique, which refers to 4 implants supporting a full set of teeth in a single jaw. In some cases, more than 4 implants are required, which would be called an “All-on-6 or 8”.
Full arch dental implants benefits:
- Allow the patients to chew with all of the strength of a natural bite
- Provide a solid and stable foundation that can last for many years
- Prevent bone loss and preserve the youthful facial appearance, by supporting the lips
- Eliminate the embarrassment of dentures that are loose, noisy, or falling out
- No more sore spots or denture adhesives like Polydent
Teeth in a Day
Dr. Massoomi is proud to provide the All-on-4 concept in just one day, at both locations in San Francisco and Cupertino. Unlike most other implants surgeons he does not “free-hand” these cases and uses CBCT guided technology to place the implant in the most precise position. He has pioneered a technique that he refers to as the “3-guide” technique, that uses the patients existing dentition to mark the exact location of the implants. This was recently published in the Journal of Oral Implantology.
The All-on-4 concept can support a fixed set of dentures that are screwed and secured into the implants on the same day. All of this is done in a single office visit. The All-on-4 concept can ensures greater stability in the bone, while reducing the need for bone graft surgery for some patients.
Our All-on-4 concept have transformed the lives of many patients by giving them a solution that is more comfortable, secure, and reliable than removable dentures.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Many patients may choose to have both jaws addressed by the All-on-4 concept, restoring their entire mouth with dependable dental implants. There are many advantages to choosing the full mouth reconstruction, which involves restoring both the upper and lower arches at the same time.
- Fewer appointments
- Fewer complications from multiple surgeries
- Less time off work by avoiding a second surgery later
- Lower long-term cost
- Ideal esthetics and tooth position
Dr. Massoomi will use the latest advances in medicine and dentistry to restore the function and aesthetic of your mouth.
Dr. Massoomi and his partners are one of the first in the US and on the westcoast to given the opportunity to offer this newest technique to patients that are already wearing traditional denture that are loose. Today with the use of only 3 implant we are able to convert the patient’s previous denture to something that is fixed and secured in the mouth with 3 implants. So in a way this is a “All-on-3” concept, but only for those who already have dentures.
Denture supported implants are convenient because they do not require any adhesive, and are comfortable because they won’t slide out of place. You can continue eating, speaking, and smiling without having to worry about your denture falling out.
Dr. Massoomi is constantly leading the way in implementing new and improved methods using dental implants to elevate the patient’s dental experience. If you would like to learn more about your implant options, please contact our office today. We look forward to assisting you.
