Computerized dentistry has gotten more popular sincepioneered “all-on-4” teeth replacements several years ago.
The original all-on-4 procedure was a manual method that didn’t utilize CT scans.
Before all-on-4 implants became the trend, removable prosthetics like dentures were the most common replacement for missing teeth. Soon after though, dental professionals from nearly all general and specialty areas adopted the all-on-4 treatment option.
More technological advancements happened quickly. Cone beam X-ray equipment and specialized treatment software allowed dentists to provide higher levels of care.
Among the advancements was the ability to use traditional crowns and bridges attached to a virtually-designed implant anchoring system. This new approach to implants provided much more accuracy than the older methods allowed for.
With computerized all-on-4 dental implants, we design a patient’s entire treatment plan before their procedure begins. Our CT scanning software can detect soft tissue conditions and bone quantity issues, as well as help us determine the type and placement of the patient’s future dental implants. This eliminates any surprises that might otherwise pop up during treatment.
Thanks to advancements in dental technology, a small group of reconstructive dentists nationwide, including Dr. Blevins, can now provide full-mouth or single-arch reconstruction in just one appointment. We can diagnose and treat a wide range of dental needs, eliminating the need for specialist referrals.
No matter what treatment our patients need, they’ll leave our office the same day with a full set of new teeth. We’ll still schedule more visits as needed for follow-up and placement of final restorations.
