"Great dental hygienist"- S.P. / Google / Jan 29, 2020
"I went in with pain on my left side and after taking exams and speaking to the doctor she was able to determine the cause of the pain and referred me to another office for the procedure. I wasn’t there very long and left satisfied with their amazing staff. Carmen at the front office was very friendly and was able to answer any questions that I had."- C.M. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
"First time I came to this location, I went on my lunch break and waited in an empty waiting room for an hour before I reminded them that I had an appointment and I was still there... so I was hesitant to go back. That was about a year ago. I really needed a cleaning and this location is really convenient, so I gave it another try. So glad I did Because the staff was amazing! They got me checked in and I did not have to wait long at all. Crystal took care of me and answered all of my tedious questions. Everyone works together so well! The dentist came in and made me feel really comfortable and took care of my fillings. Also, I had to feed my son between the cleaning and the dentist exam, they were really nice about it and gave me enough time without feeling rushed. Over all great experience with receptionist, dental assistants, dentist, and at check out!"- A. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

What to Expect
Advanced 3D oral images of your mouth, jaw, and face will be taken during your All-on-4 consultation to allow Dr. LeQuang to fully evaluate your tooth replacement needs and plan where to place your implants within your jaw. He carefully considers that level of bone in the arch and will strategize the angle of each implant to create the most stable support for your full-arch restoration. Many patients find the All-on-4 procedure to be minimally invasive. Dr. LeQuang is always committed to patient comfort and offers sedation dentistry options to provide a relaxing and stress-free procedure.
On the day of your procedure, our team will numb your mouth and surgically place your All-on-4 dental implants within your jawbone. Dr. LeQuang will then secure a temporary set of teeth to your implants that will be worn until your implant posts fuse solidly with your jaw (over a period of about 3 – 6 months). This temporary appliance will still look natural and provide full function, however. When your implants are stable, we will have you return to our practice to remove your temporary and have your new custom set of teeth made to complete your tooth replacement with All-on-4.
Once your new and final set of teeth is attached to your dental implants, you are free to go about enjoying your new smile. During the treatment process, you may notice a little swelling or discomfort after your All-on-4 implants are positioned in the jaw. Dr. LeQuang may suggest using non-prescription pain medication or give you a prescription for pain relievers to help keep you comfortable as your mouth recovers from surgery. Our team will review the best ways to keep your mouth clean while you heal and after you receive your permanent appliance. It is important to keep your dental implants and replacement teeth clean and free of plaque and food debris so that your supporting bone and gum tissues can remain healthy and strong. Even though your teeth are being replaced, you should still have routine dental cleanings at least every six months since plaque and tartar can still accumulate on your implants and tooth replacement appliance. With proper care, All-on-4 dental implants can support your oral health and a beautiful smile for many years to come.
If you have dental insurance, our team will contact your provider and review your specific benefits and plan to learn if coverage is offered for All-on-4 dental implants. Any personal out-of-pocket costs will be present to you before we begin your tooth replacement procedure. Made Ya Smile in Katy, TX wants to you enjoy a healthy, lasting smile and will work with you to help find a solution that can meet your oral health needs and that fits into your budget.
