Is My Dentist Qualified?
Not all dentists are certified to do this type of procedure. It is also best to look for someone who has the most experience. For example Dr. Kevin Gasser is a specialist in restorative work. His credentials include 25 years of professional practice, a graduate of a prestigious Malo Clinic and 1500+ hours of additional training over the years.
The Malo clinic is the innovator of the All-on-4 procedure and produces some the best knowledge and training a doctor can receive for this expertise. These are some of the finest credentials you could ask for when deciding which doctor is qualified to do your procedure.
What Makes This Procedure Different?
About 90% of people are not candidates for traditional dental implants so a frequently asked question is what makes this different for those people. All-On-4 implants are inserted at an angle and can use a much longer insert than original implants. This takes away the need for bone grafting that most candidates aren’t eligible for.
Pain and Healing
Time is a valuable thing and for most people it is not a luxury to spare. A big question asked about implants is,“How painful is the surgery and how quick is the healing process?” Pain is minimal because of the sedation during surgery and the anti-inflammatory medication prescribed.
Considering the less invasive techniques used for All-on-4 verses traditional methods there is little to no healing time required before the bridge can be placed. Most individuals will walk out with a temporary set of teeth that day. This is just until the final porcelain set is made.
Is All-On-4 My Best Option?
Most people would argue that yes it is the best option. However here are some positive benefits to ensure that this procedure is what you really want.
- Easy maintenance and care
- Restores ability to eat all types of foods
- Potentially lasts a lifetime
- Minimal recovery time
- Restores self-confidence through an amazing smile
What is your smile worth to you? Most people would say that you can’t put a price on the confidence a good looking smile brings.
