DentaVac Dental Clinic is proficient in providing our patients the “All on 4” techniques for replacing teeth in the upper arch and lower mandible. It is very important that the team of dentist are comfortable and have experience like the dental team at DentaVac.
In many situation, we are able to place the implants and provide the screw retained permanent denture in one visit to Costa Rica. This is determined by the Dental Implantologist when placing the implants. The Implantologist must make sure the implants are secure enough to support an immediate screw retained permanent denture. Patients must be aware that the gingiva may shrink due to recent surgery creating a space between the denture and the gingiva.
In other situations, we can fabricate a plastic (acrylic) temporary hybrid denture on top of the implants so patients can utilize it during the healing process (3-4 months). This will allow the gingiva to shrink after surgery and during the healing process so the final screw retained permanent denture will fit more snug to the gingiva.
All on 6 techniques is utilized mostly for the upper arch due to the fact that the bone in the upper maxilla is not as strong as the lower mandible bone. This means that sometimes more implants are necessary to support the upper screw retained permanent denture.
