At our dental practice, we help patients resolve issues with broken, missing or damaged teeth. These conditions can result from advanced gum disease, accidents or tooth decay. By restoring teeth to fill in gaps and to replace whole rows of teeth, our team can help you enjoy the most beautiful and appealing smile. This can help you feel much more confident when dealing with other people at school, at work and in social situations.
All-on-4 dental dentures are designed to provide a practical and cost-effective solution for the permanent replacement of full rows of teeth. This can help you enjoy the most natural look and feel when chewing, biting or speaking. Because All-on-4 implant dentures are permanently attached to implants in your jaw, they cannot slip or become dislodged in the way that removable dentures can. This can reduce the risk of embarrassment and eliminate most of the problems that come with removable dentures.
All-on-4’s use an advanced method of placing the implants that can allow patients with mild to moderate bone loss to use these methods to replace entire rows of teeth. Because the implants are inserted at a 45-degree angle, a larger surface area is available to help these implants stay in place more securely. Titanium implants are used to promote the fastest healing and to provide added durability for these denture solutions.
Before your All-on-4 treatment, your dentist will discuss the necessary preparations for your implants and will help you schedule appointments to take care of extractions and other necessary procedures. If you require bone grafts to increase the density of the bone in your jaw, we will also provide you with information on this procedure and the reason it is required before we can perform your implants.
Special care must be taken to protect newly placed implants. Our dental team will provide you with a list of instructions designed to speed the healing process and prevent issues with displacement of these important dental appliances.
After your All-on-4 dentures have been applied, you can usually resume your regular diet and activities right away. Your new artificial teeth can be brushed normally and will provide many years of comfortable use in almost all cases.
Cost is a concern for many of our patients. While All-on-4 options are not cheap, they are significantly less expensive than previous implant procedures. This is because the way in which All-on-4 implants are inserted into the bone of the jaw, which allows four implants to provide the same support that previously required numerous implants around the jaw. This significantly reduces the cost of All-on-4 procedures compared with other implant denture options. Our team of dedicated professionals will work with you and your dental plan to keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as possible and to provide you with payment options that work with your budget. This can make All-on-4 an affordable choice.
In most cases, implant dentures require numerous points of attachment that form a half circle around the upper or lower gums. These implants require an extended healing period and do not secure the denture as well as All-on-4 implants can. Because of the increased support and stability of All-on-4 implants, only four are required to hold dentures safely in place. This can significantly reduce the cost of these procedures and can help you to manage your budget for dental care more easily.
Removable dentures are the most common type of dentures in our area. These dentures are less expensive than All-on-4 alternatives and can provide you with a full set of artificial teeth that can improve your appearance and allow you to eat more easily and to speak more clearly. Unlike All-on-4 options, however, these dentures can sometimes slip out of place or can allow food to become lodged underneath, causing embarrassment and pain for wearers of traditional denture appliances.
