One of the biggest challenges facing people with missing teeth is going without their bridgework or dentures. Other concerns are eating and speaking comfortably. In addition, most denture wearers tell us that they don’t smile as much as they used to because they’re afraid the dentures will slip or others will notice them.
Dr. Cappy Sinclair and Dr. Mark Reichley are some of the few dentists in the United States that have the advanced training, technology, and experience to offer “All-on-Four” dental implants in Virginia Beach, VA. This procedure allows for the immediate and permanent replacement of missing teeth. We can place as few as four dental implants in the jaw to secure a permanent and natural-looking dental prosthetic.
About All-On-Four Dental Implants in Virginia Beach, VA
All-on-Four is an excellent option for patients who need to replace most or all of their missing teeth. This special technique for placing dental implants saves time and money for everyone, and is a more stable alternative to removable dentures. These implants provide a strong foundation for your new teeth and can last for decades with proper care and up-keep.
The procedure involves the placement of four titanium implants into the jawbone, which will act as anchors for a full set of prosthetic teeth. The All-On-Four Dental Implant procedure is minimally invasive, relatively painless, and has a much shorter recovery time than traditional dental implant surgery. With this procedure, you can have your smile back in no time!
The All-on-Four implant denture procedure is best for replacing the lower set of missing teeth. Typically, placing dental implants on the lower jaw is difficult due to anatomical insufficiencies and the location of nerves. The dentist places All-on-Four dental implants at an angle, avoiding these areas and eliminating the need for bone grafting. Thus saving months of healing time, and thousands of dollars.

Your Initial Consultation for All-on-Four Implants
Are you considering all-on-four dental implants to restore your smile and improve your oral health? Your initial consultation with us is the first step in the process of getting all-on-four implants. During this appointment, we will discuss your needs, evaluate your oral health, and develop a treatment plan that we tailor to you. We will also review the cost of treatment and answer any questions you may have about all-on-four implants. With our experience and expertise in providing all-on-four implants, we can help you make an informed decision about restoring your smile.
The surgical Phase
After you approve the treatment plan, we can move onto the surgical phase. First, our dentists will remove your remaining teeth in a comfortable operatory setting under dental sedation. Next, they will surgically place the dental implants in your mouth. Dr. Sinclair or Dr. Reichley will place anywhere from four to seven dental implants depending on your specific case. Our dentists may provide you with a temporary denture to restore function to your mouth while you wait for the final prosthetic.
Healing and Aftercare
After the surgical phase of placing the dental implants, you will need to wait for your mouth to heal before we can go any further. We advise our patients to stick to a soft diet during the two to three months following the All-on-Four procedure. As soon as the dental implants fully integrate with your jawbone, we will remove the temporary denture. Finally, we will secure the permanent All-On-Four denture and you will leave with a gorgeous smile.
Fortunately, there is not much to maintaining your All-on-Four restoration. Since it is permanent, you do not need to think about dental adhesives, or spending money on special products. Brush your teeth and floss under the prosthetic on a regular basis to keep your gums healthy.
