Dr. Kopman will begin by administering a local anesthetic for your comfort. He will then strategically place four dental implant posts into your jaw bone. The posts are made of medical grade titanium, which is commonly used for implants throughout the body. The location of the implants is preplanned to properly manage the force of chewing and maximize the available bone volume. All-on-4™ is designed for use with limited bone density, and therefore additional bone grafting procedures should not be necessary.
Once the implants are in place, new or existing temporary dentures will be secured to the posts. While you may wear your implant dentures immediately, the bone will continue to heal and integrate with the dental implants over the next three to six months. When this osseointegration process is complete, Dr. Kopman will remove the temporary teeth and anchor your permanent, final set.
Your implant dentures will provide you with a beautiful new smile. For your All-on-4™ consultation in Melville, NY, contact Dr. Jeffrey Kopman and Dr. Harold Kopman today!
