If your dentures are becoming uncomfortable and tiring, we have a fast, efficient and comfortable solution that will give you a second chance at the feeling of a mouth full of stable, permanent teeth.
All-on-4 is a revolutionary and highly advanced new method that allows a full mouth of new teeth to rest with complete, proven stability on only four implants. Here's what it involves:
At our practice, we understand the impact a smile can have. We would never send you out without a complete smile. That's why, usually, we will fit you with a temporary bridge (which looks identical to your natural teeth and functions just as well) before we add your permanent denture six months later.
We also offer sedation options for nervous patients. Dentistry doesn't have to be frightening! With modern sedatives, many patients will hardly know they've been in surgery.
You also need to have sufficient bone density in your jawbone to receive the implants. If you don't you could have a bone graft or sinus lift to build it up, or you could opt for zygomatic implants which are longer posts that fit into the cheekbone.
There are also lifestyle factors to consider – if you smoke we will ask you to quit or cut down and if you have uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, we will ask you to address this first. This is because dental implants are much more likely to heal properly in a non-smoker with controlled blood sugar levels. The last thing we want is for you to go to the expense and trouble of implant surgery only for it to fail. We can offer support and guidance to help with either of these issues.
