All-on-4 denture implants are an ideal solution for San Diego dental patients who have an insufficient amount of bone. Besides using just four implants, All-on-4 denture implants maximize existing bone and do not typically require bone grafting, making them a good fit for patients with less bone density.
Before the treatment begins, Dr. Valentina Obradovic numbs the area to prevent patients from feeling any discomfort or pain during the procedure. She then places four denture implants in areas where the bone is most voluminous. Once the implants are placed, Dr. Obradovic creates a framework for a temporary set of teeth using a new or existing denture.
Full integration between the bone and implant usually takes three to four months. At this juncture, Dr. Obradovic will replace the temporary teeth with a new, custom-made, permanent set that is anchored into place.
