If you are tired of dentures that slip or fall when you talk or eat, All-on-4® dental implants may be the solution for you. Unlike traditional dentures, All-on-4 implants are permanently secured in place. Schedule a consultation with us today to see if the patented All-on-4 dentures are right for you.
All-on-4 implants are permanently affixed to the jawbone and provide the same look and feel as natural teeth. You also care for the implants the same way as you would natural teeth, so you do not have to worry about overnight soaking or special cleaners.
The All-on-4 system secures a bridge or full denture to the jaw using four small posts. Before starting the treatment, the All-on-4 dentist will give you a light sedation. Two small titanium posts are then inserted into the jawbone at the front of the mouth along with two more at the rear of the mouth. Unlike traditional implants, the rear posts are angled to go deeper into the bone, which means that bone grafts are typically not required. You will receive temporary dentures to wear while you heal.
Once the implants have healed in place, a second appointment is scheduled so that the permanent dentures can be attached. Your permanent dentures are customized to match the shape and color of your natural teeth. In certain situations, the All-in-4 process can be completed in one visit, so ask about our teeth-in-a-day service during your initial consultation.
During the initial consultation, the dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to determine if there are any other oral health issues that need to be addressed before starting the implant procedure. Following the post insertion, you will be given detailed care instructions that you will need to follow to prevent infection and ensure proper healing. Once your permanent dentures are in place, you will need to brush and floss just as you would with natural teeth.
The cost of All-on-4 dental implants can vary depending on the specific needs of the patient; however, it is normally less than traditional implants. Our staff will discuss the cost with you during your initial consultation.
All-on-4 dentures only require four implants per arch compared to 10 for traditional implants. The All-on-four process is also less invasive than traditional implants, which means a shorter recovery time.
Traditional dentures simply sit on the gums, which makes them unstable. With the All-on-4 system, the teeth are permanently held in place by the posts. This prevents slipping and eliminates the need for adhesives.
