All-On-4® Dental Implants
How Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Work?
All-on-4® implants hold either an upper or a lower denture in place permanently with just four implants per arch. You can brush and floss your replacement teeth normally. Your denture will never slip and embarrass you while speaking, laughing or eating. No one will know you were born without a full set of beautiful teeth unless you tell them.
What Is the All-on-4 Implants Cost That I’ll Pay?
Prices for All-on-4 dental implants vary considerably. The materials used in your implants and denture, and other factors will be used to determine your personal cost. Contact our office to have a consultation and an examination by an implant specialist who can give you an estimated price based on your unique requirements.
Do Single Dental Implants Feel Like Natural Teeth?
A single dental implant will feel so much like a natural tooth that you will most likely forget that you have an implant. You brush your implant as if it is any other tooth in your mouth and you can eat your favorite foods without worrying about it. Your implant will look just like your other teeth as well.
What Do Implant Teeth Cost?
Your price for an implant tooth will depend on where the tooth is located in your mouth and the health of your gum and jaw. Contact us to arrange an appointment and our implant specialist can provide you with a quote after reviewing your dental and medical history and examining your mouth.
Does an Implant-Supported Bridge Have as Much Stability as a Traditional Bridge?
Actually, an implant-supported bridge has more stability than a traditional because the implants serve as tooth roots, which is how natural teeth receive support. In a traditional bridge, the stability for biting force comes from the two adjacent teeth.
What Will I Pay for an Implant Bridge?
Your implant-supported bridge cost depends on several factors, primarily the number of units (artificial teeth) needed to close the gap in your smile and the material used to make the teeth. If you need any preliminary work done, this will add to your cost. Call our office to arrange an appointment to learn your anticipated cost after a thorough exam.
How Long Does it Take to Get an Implant-Supported Denture?
A few months is the least amount of time it will take to get implant-supported dentures, although it could take longer, depending on any preliminary work that you may need. There are two surgeries with a wait of three to six months between the surgeries so the implants have time to fuse into the jawbone. If you are healthy and heal quickly, your wait for implant-secured dentures will be as short as possible. If you select All-on-4 dentures you can avoid most of the wait time that comes with traditional implants. Call our office to arrange a consultation with an implant specialist who will go over your medical and dental history and determine your suitability for implants.
What Is the Total Cost for an Implant-Supported Denture?
To get an estimate of your total cost for an implant-supported denture, you would have to come in for a clinical assessment. If you need extractions or a bone graft, this will add to your cost and we want to give you an estimate that is as accurate as possible. Please call our office to schedule your consultation.
Why Is a Periodontist the Ideal Professional to See for Implants?
A periodontist deals with the support structure for teeth. They treat gum disease, however, they are also dental implant specialists. Since a periodontist understands how a natural tooth’s root supports the tooth by being fused with the jawbone, they understand exactly where to place an implant so it will provide the support needed for a crown, bridge, or implant-supported denture. If you would like to see a local periodontist to talk about replacing missing teeth with a permanent solution, contact our office to arrange an appointment.
