A Look At An All-On-4 Dental Implants Perth Procedure
We will examine your medical history, undertake a physical examination and take x-rays. Once you have decided that this is the best option, preliminary impressions are recorded and a surgical guide is fabricated.
If needed, your dentist will remove any remaining teeth and place the dental implants. You can choose to remain awake or be asleep (sleep dentistry). During the same appointment, impressions and a bite record are taken to create temporary acrylic implant bridges. These can usually be fitted on the same day of your surgery.
The fixed temporary acrylic implant bridges will be fitted to your dental implants within 24 hours of your surgery. Usually, no local anaesthetic is required for this visit. You will then need to wait 2-6 months for osseointegration to take place (the implants will ‘fuse’ with your bone), and then only the dental implants will be ready for the permanent implant bridge.
Your dentist will check the osseointegration of your dental implants, the gums underneath your teeth and ensure that all the implants are successful. At this stage, you will be given the option to upgrade from the temporary acrylic bridge to a Zirconia - Porcelain bridge. This upgrade will provide you with more strength, greater aesthetics, improved comfort and longevity. It also has a smoother and more natural feel and easier hygiene.
