What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
For patients suffering from missing teeth or challenging tooth problems, the professionals at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts have the answer for those seeking long-term results and a beautiful, natural smile. All-on-4 dental implants offer our patients non-removable replacement teeth by placing a complete arch of prosthetic teeth on just four dental implants. They are surgically set at angles and use the best available bone for support. Since the All-on-4 technique is designed to place only four implants, which do not typically require bone grafts, they are an ideal choice for patients with low bone density. The implants are comfortable and secure, and patients usually recover quickly.
What is the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure?
Implants by All-on-4 may be used to substitute the lower and/or upper dental arches together with dental implants attached to dentures made custom for you. You will need to have good gum and bone density to be a candidate for implants since the screws will rely on your gums and bone to keep them in place. If necessary, gum and/or bone grafts might be performed before the implants are placed. Dr. Elias can determine if this process is appropriate for you during your consultation.
First, our team will take digital scans and x-rays of your teeth. Dr. Elias will develop your unique treatment plan and go over your choices for sedation throughout the process. During your first appointment, the dental implants will be set in your mouth. Dr. Elias will place a temporary denture over the dental implants while your mouth heals and your dentures are made. After several months, you should come back to get your custom dentures attached and possibly adjusted for a more comfortable fit.
You might feel some pain and discomfort in your gums after implant surgery. While you are using temporary dentures, there will be some dietary limitations and cleaning directions to follow. You'll also visit for regular follow-ups throughout the recovery period so Dr. Elias can assess your progress and make sure the implants are healing into your bone socket and gums as they should be. As soon as your custom dentures have been placed, you should clean them just like normal teeth with daily brushing and flossing. You should continue to visit Southern California Center for Surgical Arts for annual exams and biannual professional cleanings to maintain your dentures and so Dr. Elias can track the health of your mouth.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday - Dr. Elias is wonderful! He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. He's a true artist & perfectionist! He's really good at injectables as well. I get Botox & fillers all the time with him. The staff is very friendly!
Excellent, clear communication, professional. Great staff with a fun vibe. Clean office. Lots of follow ups and no issues with my dental implant! Everyone was A+.
