COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. 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.
If your natural teeth are damaged by decay or other issues, you may not be able to eat your favorite foods or smile with confidence. This can have a negative impact on your ability to deal with social situations and professional responsibilities. By correcting issues with your smile, you can feel better about yourself and can ensure that you make the best impression on those with whom you come in contact at work, at school and at play. This can have a significant impact on your interactions with others and on your overall quality of life.
What Are All-on-4 Dental® Implants?
As a relatively new addition to the dental marketplace, All-on-4 treatment options offer a permanent solution for full rows of missing teeth. These treatments require only four implants for each arch of your jaw, which can considerably reduce the cost of these procedures. Because the dentures are permanently attached to your All-on-4 dental implants, they can function just as your natural teeth would for biting, chewing and speaking with greater confidence in public spaces.
How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?
The posts used for All-on-4 dentures are fabricated of titanium, which allows the bone of your jaw to heal around it more quickly. The strength and durability of titanium is also helpful in ensuring the longevity of these dental appliances. Your dentist will use light sedation to help you feel more relaxed during the placement of these dental implants.
All-on-4 implants are inserted at a 45-degree angle, which allows them to provide more solid support for your dentures. This innovative technique is why All-on-4 only requires four implants, which can also reduce the cost of your procedure compared with more traditional implant dentures. Even patients with some bone loss in their jaw can often be suitable candidates for All-on-4 implant dentures.
What Happens Before and After the Procedure?
If you are wondering about what happens with All-on-4 before and after the actual procedure, our dental team will provide you with clear and accurate information on the treatments and appointments necessary to prepare your gums and jaw. If you still have teeth remaining, extractions may be scheduled to remove these teeth before your procedure.
Your implants will need special care during the healing process. Our dental office will provide you with detailed instructions on how to clean and maintain your implants until they heal in place to provide support for your All-on-4 denture.
During the All-on-4 procedure, a custom-made denture will be attached to the upper or lower implants. Once this denture is in place, you can brush your teeth normally and can usually return to your regular menu and activities.
How Much Will My All-on-4 Procedure Cost?
Many of our patients ask, “Where can I find affordable All-on-4 dental implants near me?” We aim to be the best single answer to that question. By working with an All-on-4 dentist from our dental team, you can ensure that you receive the best options for your budget. We work with dental insurance companies to keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as possible. If you are concerned about your All-on-4 dental implants cost, we can also offer payment options that may make these treatment plans more affordable.
How Are All-on-4 Implants Different from Traditional Implant Dentures?
All-on-4 appliances require just four implants at strategic spots at the front and back of your jaw. This is in sharp contrast to other types of implant dentures, which can sometimes require many attachment points to achieve the same degree of stability when biting, chewing and speaking.
How Are Traditional Dentures Different from All-on-4s?
Most traditional denture options are designed to be removable. They are held in place by adhesives that can sometimes fail, causing embarrassing slips and allowing food to become trapped underneath, creating serious discomfort. All-on-4 dentures are permanently attached to implants in the jaw and cannot fall or slip. They can be treated like natural teeth in almost all situations you will encounter on a daily basis.
Where Can You Get All-on-4 Implants?
Our dental team will be happy to work with you to determine if All-on-4 implants are the right choice for you. Our All-on-4 dentures can help you enjoy the most practical solutions for missing and broken teeth and can ensure that you feel confident and capable of showing off a beautiful smile without worries about denture slips and other embarrassing issues with traditional denture applications. This can help you look and feel your very best every day.
