About All-on-4 Dental Implants
ACE Dental of Bellmead is excited to offer All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants with Nobel Biocare™ technology to secure full-arch dentures. This oral surgery implants four or six titanium screws into the jawbone at fixed locations to secure an upper and/or lower arch appliance. Compared to other implant solutions, this provides greater support and allows patients to eat more freely without having to worry about their dentures falling out of place. If you are tired or frustrated with removable dentures and are seeking a more reliable option, contact our office in Bellmead, TX to learn more about All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants. This may be the solution you've been searching for.
Are You a Candidate for All-on-4 or All-on-6?
All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants are typically reserved for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw. You might also consider this procedure if you already have dentures but want to increase the stability and function of your oral appliance. With All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants, patients are able to enjoy the foods they love while confidently showing off a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Dental implants can often be placed, even after bone loss has occurred, which makes this oral surgery a feasible option for many patients. However, this treatment may not be a good option for those who suffer from certain medical or dental conditions.
What Is the Treatment Process?
The first step in your treatment process is to take 3D digital scans and x-rays of your mouth. From there, our team can build your custom dental plan and discuss sedation dentistry options. Prior to surgery, we will prep the treatment area by administering a local numbing agent. Then, we will surgically place the four or six dental implants in the designated sites within the upper and/or lower jawbone. It's important to know that your implants will need time to fuse to the bone before we can place your full-arch restoration(s). In the meantime, we will place a temporary appliance, and once your mouth has healed, we will schedule an appointment to fix your dentures securely to your newly placed dental implants.
Recovery Following All-on-4 or All-on-6
Patients can expect to experience swelling and mild discomfort after their All-on-4 or All-on-6 surgery, but this is normal. To help reduce your symptoms, we recommend taking over-the-counter pain medication and using cold compresses at least for the first few days following your procedure. Our team will also provide you with post-op care instructions to aid in your recovery. It's important to understand that dental implants and dentures should still be cared for as you would your natural teeth. Routine brushing and flossing, in addition to biannual dental exams at ACE Dental of Bellmead, are strongly encouraged to maintain long-term oral health.
Insurance Coverage for Implants
Depending on your dental plan, partial coverage may be offered for your All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants. On average, most patients will have some costs they'll have to cover on their own. Our billing team will do their due diligence to maximize your benefits and can assist you in finding low-interest medical financing to help with the remaining expenses. At ACE Dental of Bellmead, we can also work with you to create a budget-friendly payment plan so you can better afford the treatment you need.
