What to Expect During Your All-On-Four Dental Implant Procedure
You could have a brand new smile in one day, with "Dr. Brueggen's Smile-In-A-Day" Dental Implant Procedure.
While every patient is different, here is a general guideline of what to expect during your All-On-4® Dental Implant Procedure.
The first thing to remember when getting All-On-Four Dental Implants is not to worry. Dr. Brueggen and his team are highly skilled with dental implant procedures and strive to make this a positive and easy experience for you.
Before Your Dental Implant Procedure
Before the procedure, Dr. Brueggen will take X-rays or a 3D CAT SCAN, if needed, and perform a brief exam to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants and the recommended treatment. If you are a candidate for All-on-Four dental implants, Dr. Brueggen will then thoroughly explain the procedure, answer any questions and address concerns you may have. Your appointment will be made to place your implants and new teeth.
During Your Dental Implant Procedure
When you arrive to your appointment, you will be greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable staff. Once you are placed in your room, your conscious sedation will begin.
After your sedation has taken effect, your procedure will begin by extracting any remaining teeth and preparing your mouth for the implants. Dr. Brueggen will then place the dental implants, the first step to your new smile. After he has placed the dental implants, Dr. Brueggen's lab will begin the fabrication of your new teeth while you rest comfortably.
Once your new set of teeth is placed, Dr. Brueggen will check your bite and ensure accuracy of the placement. At this time, you will be able to look in the mirror and admire your beautiful new smile. This is an emotionally rewarding experience that often brings tears to our patients' eyes and ours as well.
After Your Dental Implant Procedure
Dr. Brueggen will review your post-procedure care with you and discuss what will be coming up in your future follow-up appointments. Recovery is minimal and you may even be able to return to work the next day. In about six months, after the dental implants have fully integrated with the bone, it will be time to remove your temporary set of teeth and place your new set of permanent teeth. This is extremely easy and virtually painless; requiring only the removal of four discreetly placed screws. If any alterations from the initial, temporary teeth are required, they will be discussed and planned at this time.
