How to Clean All-on-4 Implants
Charleston, WV

They allow the restoration of full mouth function. Fixed dentures used to be the solution for multiple missing teeth, but their shortcomings caused patients to look for procedures with better results and shorter recovery periods.

An all-on-4 dental implant involves teeth extraction, implants, and a temporary bridge fitting, all within the same day! During this process, Dr. Chad Boustany embeds four separate implants into the patient’s jawbone for a full-arch restoration. The All-on-4 implants imitate the look and feel of natural teeth and offer a solid base for the new teeth. They allow patients to flaunt a confident smile and comfortably chew their food.

How to Care For Your All-on-4 Implants


Your All-on-4 dental implants will require the utmost care and maintenance while brushing and flossing. After completing the procedure, your dentist will guide you in regard to cleaning instructions. You should take care to prevent plaque build-up and food particles around the bridge attachments on the gums, as it can lead to inflammation.

For optimal results, follow this cleaning regime:

•  Start with an electric toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste.
•  Use a Waterpik (or water flosser) after meals to remove residual food particles.
•  Don’t skip flossing. Take extra care to clean the area between the gums and the implants.
•  Use an interdental brush to clean hard-to-reach areas between the teeth. This brush has small bristles and helps prevent plaque.
•  Softpicks or doctor’s toothpicks can also help remove food particles between the implants and the gum line.
•  End with a rubber tip gum stimulator. Gently move it around the gum line.

Even though this cleaning routine might seem extensive, regular upkeep and oral hygiene maintenance can result in long-lasting All-on-4 dental implants.

Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants


All-on-4 dental implants are embedded onto the jawbone, creating a secure adhesion. The results include a superior-quality implant, easier chewing, and a confident-looking smile. Here are a few benefits of opting for All-on-4 dental implants over other tooth replacement methods:

•  On the first day of treatment, you will go home flaunting a confident smile.
•  All-on-4 implants can support the whole arch through just four dental implants, making them a cost-effective choice.
•  Regular dentures might slip from their position when you’re eating, but All-on-4 dental implants stay firmly embedded in place.
•  In complex cases where no other treatment seems to work, All-on-4 implants have a high success rate.
•  They can improve the quality of life for patients struggling with chewing, speaking, and other mouth functions.
•  They work well, even when there’s less jawbone to work with.
