All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary new way to achieve a full smile with dentures and still have the support, stability, and appearance of natural teeth. All-on-4 dental implants are truly different than conventional implant-supported dentures. Station Park Dental in Farmington, UT wants you to know the facts about All-on-4 dental implants.
Long-term denture wearers often find they need to have their denture relined because they have lost bone. Bone loss occurs because your bone is receiving continual pressure from the denture, causing the bone to disappear over time; this process is called resorption. All-on-4 dental implants help to retain your bone, eliminating the need for continuous denture relines.
In general, all-on-4 dental implants treatment (also known as AO4) and most of the lab work is performed in-house for a full mouth of teeth-in-a-day. Nevertheless, in many cases when extensive lab work is required, the set of teeth is delivered in 24 hours.

Dr. Allen enjoys very much helping patients get their smiles back with all-on-4 dental implants.

While the vast majority of certified all-on-4 clinicians in the dental implant industry take a traditional approach of using just Novocain local anesthesia during treatment, our all-on-4 facility is state board certified in sleep dentistry including twilight sedation and general anesthesia to more conveniently serve our patients, expedite their treatment and lower the overall cost. We provide advanced anxiety-free service.
Additional all-on-4 cost depends on several factors including the system and type of teeth the patients may want as a full mouth permanent dental implant-supported fixed bridge for teeth-in-a-day replacement.
These full mouth fixed bridges can be made out of zirconia or a combination of acrylic teeth over a titanium framework (known as hybrid permanent bridges). (Continue reading below for the different types available).
A zirconia permanent implant-supported fixed bridge is occasionally recommended for strength and durability. A combination of using permanent acrylic teeth over a titanium framework (often called a hybrid permanent bridge also known as a full-mouth restoration with implants) is preferred for control, durability, and reparability.

What can I eat after all on 4 procedure?
Here is a list of several kinds of soft foods to keep in mind after implant surgery menu interesting. In general, a soft diet like gelatin, pudding, soup, ice cream, yogurt, etc. are advised during the first two days following surgery to avoid small and large food particles from lodging underneath the wound. Semi-liquid foods including mashed potatoes, eggs, soft pasta may be added to the diet on the third day. You may resume a normal diet after the first two weeks. Avoid crunchy, hard foods like popcorn, nuts, and chips for four weeks following surgery. Smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages should be avoided for the first two weeks.
Remember that even though food is soft ask yourself is it spicy? Very hot? Are there seeds, even small seeds like poppy or sesame? Rice and quinoa, even when cooked extra soft, could get under your all-on-4 bridge and might not be the best option, at least in the first week of healing.
