The first step, which applies to all procedures, involves evaluating the patient and determining if they are a suitable candidate for the “all on four” treatment. Once it is determined that a patient is suitable for the implant, the dentist will perform a CT scan, take special x-rays, and make impressions of the upper and lower jaw to custom-build a non-removable prosthetic bridge.
During the next step, the dentist will remove all failing teeth and infected gum tissues. Two dental implants are fixed inside the jawbone from the front. The other two implants are fixed at the back of the jaw. Thus, the jaws alongside the implants provide very stable support for the bridge. After the implants are placed, the surgical site is thoroughly cleaned. Finally, the non-removable prosthetic bridge is placed on the implants, where the new teeth will be attached.
After this procedure, patients must go for follow up visits for the next few months to ensure the implants have fused well into the jawbone.
