ALL ON FOUR. ADVANTAGES AND TIPS

It is a process of healing the implant placed in the patient’s mouth. There is a direct, structural, and functional connection between living bone and the surface of an implant subjected to functional loading. For successful osseointegration to take place, several factors must be taken into account:

  1. Whether or not inflammation occurs
  2. Implant design
  3. Time in which the implant remains free of loads (about 6 months)

Tips to follow the best postoperative care

With proper care, any complications and alterations can be prevented and the healing of the dental implant occurs in the best possible way. The advice to carry out this care will be given to you by the specialist who has taken care of your case and knows exactly how your healing will unfold. However, it is very important to follow the following general guidelines and recommendations:

  1. Avoid rinsing for the first 24 hours after surgery.
  2. Place ice bags in the treated area during the first day. In this way, inflammation can be avoided to a great extent.
  3. Take a soft diet during the first days as it is very important for the whole healing process. It also serves to avoid pressure and thus improve bone healing. In the type of diet, the temperature at which they are ingested will also be a key factor. You have to avoid very hot foods to prevent bleeding. It is better to take foods at room temperature. The recommended foods would be the following:
      • Gazpacho
      • Yogurt
      • Eggs
      • Soft or ground-fish (Avoid chewing and increased tension in the intervened area)

ALL ON FOUR, WHAT IS THE NEWEST TECHNIQUE OF DENTAL IMPLANTS?

All on Four is one of the newest techniques in implantology that rehabilitates full arches in patients who have lost a large part of their teeth or who are willing to make a change in their entire mouth.

Many people come to our clinic to obtain information and, later, a budget that adapts to their needs with this treatment.

That is why our specialized team has decided to show what this technique consists of, its main advantages and disadvantages, and what the treatment is like.

All on four technique: What is it about?

It is a minimally invasive technique that is performed with state-of-the-art equipment and materials to solve the problems of the total absence of teeth. This dental surgery is carried out in a single day and replaces all the teeth in the upper and lower arch with a reduced number of implants.

Do you know…

The name ”All on four” is given to this treatment because it comprises of using four implants in each jaw. Sometimes, depending on each patient, more implants are needed, such as up to 6. In this case, it would be called an “All on six” treatment. It is clinically proven with 95% success that it is a safe and effective treatment for all people lacking dental bone.

The implants used are made of titanium, which is a very resistant and biocompatible material that can be integrated into the bone with very positive results and there is practically no type of rejection or allergy. The difference in this treatment lies in the inclination of two of the four implants.

Surgical process “All on four”

First of all, to carry out this treatment, the assistance of two very important people from the professional team of the dental clinic will be necessary: ​​dentist and hygienist. They will be in charge of applying anesthesia with conscious sedation to the patient.

Subsequently, the dental pieces will be extracted (if any) and the implants that will hold the prosthesis are placed. By placing the implant, it is possible to replace the natural root of the tooth. It is a painless process and highly recommended by our patients. After the surgery is completed, a provisional prosthesis is fitted until the implants have successfully healed.

In this way, the person who undergoes the All on four treatment returns home with a new smile in just 1 day. Later, when the implants are integrated into the bone (osseointegration), the provisional prosthesis is replaced by the definitive one.

For implant planning, Asensio Advanced Dentistry uses the NobelGuide software, with which it works to obtain a detailed diagnosis, how to identify the available bone, virtual placement, and prosthetic needs.

PLACEMENT AND USE OF SNAP-ON SMILE

What is Snap-on Smile?

Snap-on smile is a dental aesthetic treatment that is characterized by being removable. It is made up of a very thin and resistant resin case that is totally customized to fit your mouth, as well as being resistant. It is placed over the teeth to change their shape and appearance on a temporary basis and can be removed and inserted anytime you need it.

This technique modifies the appearance of the smile immediately and is very useful in situations in which you need to show off your smile in public, whether at events, talks, conferences … It is also one of the most requested and definitive solutions to replace missing teeth while we are placing dental implants or the person is undergoing any other dental treatment. With this treatment, the tooth structure is not altered; it simply fits in and out of the natural teeth of the patient because it is totally reversible. At Asensio Advanced Dentistry, we recommend Snap-on Smile to enjoy your smile temporarily or permanently, as it is the perfect aesthetic solution.

Snap-on Smile procedure

The procedure is virtually painless. In the first consultation, the dentist makes an impression of the teeth, without anesthesia, which is sent directly to the laboratory. The mold is filled with plaster and then digitized in 3D on a computer.

After this process, the mold is designed with its respective corrections in a digital program and then sent to a 3D printer. The impression is obtained and is taken to a plaster mold, called a muffle, to be injected at high pressures into its material and final color. Finally, the plaster mold is removed for final adjustments and polishing.

In the second consultation, the prosthesis is placed on the patient, and on some occasions, adjustments will be made outside the mouth if necessary.

What are the uses of the Snap-on Smile in dental aesthetics?
