Created by Nobel Biocare, All-on-4 implant dentures are a revolutionary approach for fastening dentures in place to provide a total restoration. This treatment works by placing screws (implants) to four spots on the upper and/or lower arches of your mouth. In contrast to other enhancement dentures, All-on-4 utilizes fewer implants to give you a more secure hold. General dentist Dr. Nick Dovey suggests All-on-4 implant dentures if you are wanting a completely restored mouth without the bother and diet limitations that accompany removable dentures. Several San Diego, CA patients have enjoyed the advantages of this new All-on-4 treatment technique, and they appreciate the quality outcomes. If you are interested in discovering more about All-on-4 and custom-made dentures, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Finest City Dental.
Dentures by All-on-4 can be utilized to substitute the lower and/or upper dental arches. You could be a good candidate for All-on-4 implant dentures if you prefer the advantages of implant-supported dentures compared to traditional, removable dentures, including no or few diet limitations, no sticky glues, and no denture soaking. You'll have to have sufficient gum and bone density to receive implants since these screws rely upon your gums and bone to keep them in position. If necessary, gum and/or bone grafts might be required before implant placement. Dr. Dovey can ascertain if this treatment is ideal for you during your consultation and will discuss all of your choices.

"I have been going to Dr Dovey for the past year. I have had two cleanings, fillings repaired and even a chipped tooth fixed. The chipped front tooth was my most recent appointment. The chip was really bad and I didn't even want to smile. Dr Dovey understood the embarrassment that I was experiencing and handled me with pure professionalism. Shannon was amazing getting me an appointment right away and Dr Dovey made my tooth look like nothing ever happened to it. It is a good feeling going to a dentist that you can trust. Dr Dovey and his staff are very honest and professional. My husband has recently started going to Finest City Dental and he has experienced the same satisfaction. Thank you Dr Dovey and his team at Finest City Dental!"- S.F. / Yelp / Feb 16, 2020

What to Expect
First, we will take impressions and x-rays of your mouth. Dr. Dovey will develop your personal treatment program and go over your choices for sedation that can be used throughout your procedures. During your first session, the dental implants will be set on your dental arch. Dr. Dovey will put a temporary cover to protect the dental implants as your gums and jawbone recover and your dentures are crafted. In a few months, you should come back to have your custom-made dentures connected and possibly adjusted for a more comfortable fit. Many patients report that their All-on-4 dentures function and feel like real teeth.
You might feel some pain and discomfort in your mouth following implant surgery. When you're wearing temporary dentures, there will be some dietary limitations and cleaning directions you need to follow. You'll also need to schedule routine follow-ups throughout the recovery period so Dr. Dovey can assess your recovery and be certain that the implants are healing into your bone socket and gums. As soon as your custom dentures have been set, you should clean them just like normal teeth with regular flossing and brushing. You should still go to Finest City Dental for your yearly examinations and twice-yearly professional cleanings to maintain your dentures. This way, Dr. Dovey can track the health of your implants, gums, and jaw.
Several insurance companies may provide partial coverage for custom dentures and All-on-4 implants. It's very likely that there'll be some personal expenses; however, our staff will use your insurance provider to optimize your policy. If you do not have insurance, Finest City Dental accepts numerous payments, such as medical financing. Dr. Dovey, along with his staff, will help your All-on-4 procedure fit into your budget.
