Introducing the All-on-4 Dental Procedure From Inspire Dental Wellness

All-On-4 dental implants offered by Inspire Dental Wellness are a popular and durable choice for full-mouth dental reconstructions.

All-On-4 implant surgery

The All-On-4 dental implant procedure is quickly becoming a sought-after option for Orland Park, IL, residents needing full-mouth restoration or permanent tooth loss solutions. Compared to traditional implant dental surgery, which can require up to 10 implants to hold the new teeth in place, the All-On-4 only requires four implants per jaw and is done in a single surgery, leading to a much quicker recovery time.

The All-On-4 implant surgery is a full mouth restoration. Prior to surgery, Dr. Erica Zolnierczyk and the experienced team at Inspire Dental Wellness will perform a comprehensive consultation and examination, including X-rays and digital 3-D scans, in order to get a better understanding of the patient's dental history and to identify any underlying issues that may need to be corrected prior to the procedure.

The procedure itself occurs under full sedation. First, the dentist will extract all problem teeth and damaged gum tissue, then make a ridge reduction on the jaw bone. From there, the doctor will make a series of small incisions to shape the arch sockets. Next, pilot holes are drilled at precise angles, taking care to avoid contact with nerves or sinus cavities. This is done to obtain maximum strength and stability for the implant screws and connectors. Once implant screws and connectors are placed, the doctor will install a set of provisional implants. These temporary implants, or teeth, are used as a short-term solution while waiting for the incisions to heal, bone to graft, and permanent implants to be created. 

Once the permanent implants are complete, and the mouth is given time to heal (a process that can take anywhere from three to six months), the temporary implants are removed and replaced with permanent implants.
