Lower Zirconia All On 4 Dental Implant Treatment
There is more than one path to achieving a beautiful, confident and radiant smile
A CASE STUDY
Tami is an engaging and determined woman who has faced the challenge of missing posterior teeth in her mandible for years. Her dental situation was complex, with not only missing teeth but also crowded, decayed, and discolored mandibular incisor teeth. Yet, she had a clear vision for her dental future. Tami's primary goal was to find a reliable solution for her missing posterior teeth that would offer her permanent, fixed replacements.
Upon consulting with our team, Tami learned about the transformative potential of the All On 4 dental implant treatment. The idea of having stable, fixed teeth without the hassle of removable dentures or extensive surgeries appealed to her practical nature.
A Functional Solution for Missing Teeth
Tami's approach was straightforward. She decided to prioritize her missing posterior teeth, recognizing that they were the root cause of her functional challenges. This led her to choose the lower All On 4 implant treatment. Tami was fully aware that her mandibular incisor teeth were crowded, decayed, and discolored, but she was willing to forego saving them for the time being in favor of a functional solution for the missing teeth.
Tami's lower All On 4 implants and specific placement were planned with sophisticated software. Four implants were expertly placed in her mandible, using guided surgery for accuracy of positioning. After a period of temporization that allowed the implants to integrate and heal, she received a new set of permanent, fixed teeth that felt secure and allowed her to enjoy her favorite foods without restrictions.

A New Smile
This implant treatment addressed her functional needs in a relatively short period of time. She was involved from the beginning and helped us design the teeth to suit her smile. Since her upper dentition were already crowned, we opted for final zirconia prosthesis.
With her posterior teeth now restored and her mandibular function vastly improved, Tami looks ahead to her next step. She plans to replace the crowns on her upper teeth which will further enhance the esthetics of her smile. She knows that with her new lower teeth in place, she can take her time focusing on the cosmetic aspect of her dental rehabilitation. Tami appreciates the flexibility that the All On 4 implant treatment provides, allowing her to address her priorities one step at a time.
Tami's Beautiful, Confident, and Radiant Smile
Tami's story is a testament to her practicality and determination. By prioritizing her functional needs with lower All On 4 dental implants, she regained her dental health and confidence. She is excited about the next phase of her dental journey -- transforming the esthetics of her upper teeth with new crowns, and single implants to replace her two missing molars.
Tami's vision of a beautiful, functional smile came to fruition, thanks to the versatility and effectiveness of modern dental implant treatments. Her story serves as a reminder that there is often more than one path to achieving a confident and radiant smile.
