Many patients ask if All on 4 dental implants are similar to dentures and if they are removable. As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Kissel sees hundreds of patients every year who want to replace their loose or missing teeth. While there are several options to choose from, dental implants are widely considered the best tooth-replacement option on the market today. And when you have an entire arch or mouthful of teeth to replace, there’s no better option than the minimally invasive All on 4 system offered by Dr. Kissel. In no time, you’ll have a fully restore mouthful of teeth that will give you a new lease on life. However, as far as All on 4 implants being similar to dentures, it’s important to note several important differences, one of which is the ability to remove them.

All on 4 Dental Implants with Dr. Kissel

Patients who need an entire mouthful of teeth replaced can choose All on 4 dental implants with Dr. Kissel. This option provides men and women with new, fully functional, and aesthetically pleasing teeth in less time by using just 4 dental implants per arch of teeth. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, Dr. Kissel is able to place All on 4 dental implants and his patients benefit from a faster recovery period.

By strategically placing the longer rear implants at an angle, Dr. Kissel is able to avoid the sinus cavity. This placement also enables all 4 implants to work together to provide the stability required to support an entire arch of teeth. Using this advanced technology, patients are able to avoid the need to have one implant placed for every missing tooth.

Are All on 4 Dental Implants Removable?

One of the best benefits of All on 4 dental implants is the fact that they are a permanent tooth-replacement option. Because they are surgically placed into the jawbone, they will gradually fuse to the bone and cannot be removed. The prosthetic teeth that are attached on top of the implants can be removed by Dr. Kissel if needed, but the patient cannot remove them.

As with natural teeth, your new pearly whites should be brushed twice a day, flossed once a day, and rinsed with antibacterial mouthwash once a day. Additionally, it’s important to keep your biannual appointments with your general dentist for cleanings and check-ups.

What You Can Expect from Your All-on-4 Treatment

To find out if treatment with the All-on-4 system is right for you, the first thing you should do is schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Kissel. During your appointment, he will perform a full oral evaluation, talk to you about your overall health history as well as your oral health history, take a dental CT scan, and optical scans, and perform a 3-D diagnostic work. This workup will result in a 3-D printed surgical guide for optimum implant placement, fewer complications, and the best long-term result. These steps are necessary to ensure your candidacy for All-on-4 treatment.

No matter the treatment he provides, Dr. Kissel develops every plan to meet the unique needs of his patients, so you can rest assured that your new teeth will be unique to you and will be custom-made to match your overall appearance.
