All-on-4 Dental Implants in Bothell

Over the past two decades, dental implants have become the premier tooth replacement solution available today, loved by dentists and patients alike around the world. Thankfully, this technology is constantly improving, bringing about a treatment that can help a patient replace an entire row of missing teeth in just one appointment with an implant-retained denture: All-on-4. With All-on-4 dental implants in Bothell, Dr. Hsue can give a patient their complete smile back in less time than ever.

How Does All-on-4 Work?

To begin, all a patient needs to do is schedule a consultation with their dentist in Bothell, Dr. Hsue. After performing a thorough oral exam and taking a variety of diagnostic images, he’ll be able to determine whether or not a patient is a good candidate for the All-on-4 procedure.

If they are, he’ll then use additional diagnostic scans to determine the exact locations of the implants. Typically, two implants are placed towards the front of the jaw where the bone is naturally thicker, and two more are placed towards the back at an angle so they can provide maximum hold.

When a patient comes in for the actual procedure, any remaining damaged/decayed teeth will first be removed to create room for the denture, the implants will be placed into the jawbone, and then the denture itself will be attached to them. Dr. Hsue will then make any final adjustments that are necessary, and at that point, a patient’s new smile will be ready for the world!

Why People Love All-on-4

  • Speed: Everything can be accomplished in a single appointment (after a few pre-treatment visits), making it one of the fastest solutions for multiple missing teeth.
  • Security: Implant-retained dentures are much less likely to slip, slide, pop, or click unexpectedly compared to traditional removable dentures.
  • Bone Retention: Dental implants actually stimulate new bone growth in the jaw, preventing the tooth loss that regular dentures can’t. This keeps the bone strong and healthy, which helps maintain the overall shape of a patient’s face.
  • Stronger Bite: Implant-retained dentures have been shown to restore up to 70% of a patient’s natural bite strength, while normal dentures only bring back about 20%. A better bite means a patient is able to enjoy a wider variety of foods with ease, which often lends itself to a much healthier diet.
