Strengthen Your Smile With All-on-4® Dental Implants in Highland, MI

All-on-4® dental implants in Highland, MI can renew every aspect of your smile if you are missing a full arch of teeth. Not only can Dr. LoCascio help you eat normally again, but because these fixed replacement teeth look healthy and natural, you’ll be able to smile normally too. Here are some other benefits you can expect:

  • You don’t need to buy adhesives to make sure your teeth stay put.
  • You can avoid jawbone deterioration.
  • You can chew easier because the pressure from biting goes to your implants and bone, not your gums.
  • You can brush and clean your teeth like normal.
  • You can get your implants and replacement teeth the same day as your extraction.

Complete Your Smile With All-on-4 Implants

If you have many teeth missing, even a full arch of teeth, there’s a better alternative to getting dentures or individual dental implants attached to crowns. All-on-4 implants are similar to dentures in that they replace all your top or bottom teeth. However, dentures are normally held in place using adhesive and the shape of the gum mold holding the false teeth, while the All-on-4 system tightly secures replacement teeth using four titanium roots in your jawbone.

Here’s how the All-on-4 process works:

  • Using digital X-rays, Dr. LoCascio will find the four sites best suited for placing the implants and distributing the pressure from chewing.
  • Before the procedure starts, he will use a local anesthetic to completely numb the implant sites. If you are anxious about the procedure, our calming staff can relieve anxiety by administering inhaled sedation (laughing gas).
  • If you have damaged or diseased teeth that need removal, Dr. LoCascio will extract the teeth before your implants are placed.
  • Dr. LoCascio will then implant the four titanium roots into your gums.
  • As soon as your implants are placed, he will attach your replacement teeth – a benefit not possible with many implant procedures.
