All-on-4 Dental Implants — Metairie, LA

Efficient & Reliable Full-Arch Tooth Replacement

Dental implants act as prosthetic tooth roots. Does that mean, then, that you need an implant for each missing tooth? Not necessarily. With All-on-4 dental implants, we can help patients in Metairie enjoy efficient and reliable full-arch tooth replacement with the use of just four implant posts. Plus, we can provide you with a new denture on the same day that you get your implants!! To learn more about this remarkable and expedited treatment, get in touch with Nelson Dental Care today. We look forward to helping you smile!

How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Work?

All-on-4 is exclusively for patients who require a full arch of new teeth. During the procedure, we place four dental implants at strategic locations in the jawbone. Two go toward the front, and two are placed toward the back at a 45-degree angle. By using areas where the bone is naturally strong and thick, we can often avoid the need for a bone graft. Plus, the implants are able to support a provisional (temporary) denture on the same day they are placed. After a healing period of a few months, you will receive a permanent denture to replace the provisional one.
