All-On-4 Dental Implants in Westwood Village
Dr. Aalam has been performing the All-On-4 treatment in Westwood Village for over a decade and was trained in Portugal by Dr. Paolo Malo, the founder of the All-On-4™ technique. The process begins with a thorough consultation to determine the best course of action for a patient’s specific case. In some cases, teeth that have been damaged or are affected by periodontal disease and are no longer saveable are extracted. Each patient’s case is unique, and it is important to receive a proper diagnosis from a periodontist in Westwood Village, who can best advise on which treatment plan is best for your needs.
The All-On-4 treatment is a graftless solution, as it utilizes the patients’ existing bone as a secure foundation for the dental implants. Dental implants are placed into the jawbone, and eventually integrate into the bone to become a permanent part of the mouth. Patients who experience bone loss are often told they are not a candidate for dental implants in Westwood Village, however there are several options for permanently restoring missing teeth with dental implants, even if you suffer from bone loss. The All-On-4 treatment is one graftless alternative, which uses the patient’s healthy bone to avoid the need for a bone graft, creating a more comfortable and less invasive solution than traditional implants. The All-On-4 treatment uses a minimum of four dental implants, however often, more than four implants are placed. Once the implants are anchored securely into the jaw, they are scanned to create a temporary immediate prosthesis. Patients are sent home wearing temporary restorations created at our practice to provide them with immediate function and a complete smile until the implants are fully integrated into the jaw and the gum tissue around the implants heal. This allows patients to leave with a complete set of teeth, and so that they can eat, chew and smile comfortably over the next four months while the implants and tissue healed. All treatments were done in one single procedure, and patients return after four months, once the implants have permanently fused to the bone and the gum tissue around the implants healed, to receive their fully functional, esthetically pleasing and sustainable restorations. These fixed, full-arch prostheses restore a healthy and beautiful smile for patients, completely rejuvenating their oral health, providing them with the comfort of eating, speaking and laughing with ease, and restoring their self-esteem allowing her to go through life with confidence!
If you are missing the majority of your teeth and suffer from compromised oral health, a lack of confidence and the inability to chew, eat, speak and go through life with comfort and ease, contact your Westwood periodontist to schedule a consultation today.
