Steps of All-on-4 Dental Implants Procedure in Houston, TX
During your first visit, we will perform a regular oral exam and take dental radiographs for proper assessment. If All on 4 dental implants in Houston are best for you, our dentists will devise a treatment plan and discuss its details. You are free to ask any questions regarding the process during this stage.
We may perform some preliminary procedures before implant surgery to improve your candidacy for dental implants. For example, if you have extensive bone loss, we will recommend bone grafting to fortify your jawbone. These procedures will help to enhance the success of dental implants later on.
This step involves a surgical process for inserting 4 dental implants in your jawbone. The surgery takes place under local anesthesia. Implant surgery follows a healing period of about 3 months to allow the fusion of dental implants with the surrounding jawbone. These implants act as supportive pillars for the dental prosthesis.
After sufficient healing, we will permanently fix a complete dental prosthesis on top of the implants. It resembles your natural teeth and gum line, restoring a perfect-looking smile!
