We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
Traditional dentures that slip and make eating difficult might be better than a smile with teeth missing, but they are not the ideal solution. Having to apply enough denture adhesive to keep them in place, and then prying off the removable dentures at night isn’t fun. Keep reading to learn more about how you can have a beautiful smile with teeth that you never have to remove.
What Are All-on-4® Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a solution for anyone who desires to have a full set of upper or lower dentures permanently affixed to their jaw, which will look and function like natural teeth. You brush them like natural teeth, and you never have to remove the denture to clean it.
What Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
The prices per arch will vary, depending on if you need any extractions. Additionally, not everyone is a good candidate, although age is not a factor. Contact our office to arrange a consultation and our dentist can provide you with an estimate of your total cost.
How Does a Dentist Place All-on-4 Dentures?
Our dentist will insert four titanium implants into your upper or lower jawbone to anchor the denture. If your jawbone is deteriorating, you may still be able to have the All-on-4 treatment without a bone graft because of the angled position of the implants. There is minimal, if any, pain with local anesthesia. In some cases, you can have a temporary denture to wear the same day, until your custom denture is ready. With your custom denture, you can speak clearly and eat your favorite foods again.
What is the All-on-4 Before and After Experience Like?
Before receiving the implants, our dentist completes a thorough examination, which includes x-rays. If you have any teeth that need to be pulled, our dentist does this first. After our dentist places the implants, he or she will provide you with aftercare instructions. The procedure has a high, long-term success rate.
You can see the amazing results in patient’s before and after pictures. In reviews, people say the procedure changed their life.
How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Differ from Traditional Implants?
With an All-on-4 dental implant, two of the implants are tilted for added strength, allowing dentists to use four implants, instead of the normal six to eight implants per jaw. Moreover, bone grafts are not usually necessary, even with jawbone deterioration, because the implants can go where there is enough bone.
How Are All-on-4 Dentures Different than Traditional Dentures?
Traditional dentures sit on the gums with an acrylic plate covering the roof of the mouth for upper dentures. All-on-4 dentures connect to implants with no acrylic plate and no need to use denture adhesive.
