Customized Smile Makeover Procedures for a Brilliant Smile
Full Mouth Reconstruction for Lasting Results
Patients who wish to replace a full arch of teeth, yet have some degree of bone loss, may benefit from the All-on-4® technique. This option involves placing just four implants into the jaw and then restoring the smile with a prosthesis. Typically, there is no need for a bone graft. Patients enjoy immediate results with a temporary set of teeth placed the same day of their visit and permanent results after the implants have fully integrated into the bone (in about three to six months). The All-on-4® procedure allows patients to undergo a fast recovery time and enjoy all of their favorite foods without the worry of removable appliances.
Reasons to Consider Implant Supported Dentures for Tooth Replacement
Bar-Retained Implant Supported Dentures
With this option, a series of implants will be placed within the bone. A set of metal bars will be attached to the implants and will run along the gum line to create a foundation for a denture. This is a secure option for replacing multiple teeth and can be used for the upper and lower arch.
Dental implants are strategically placed within the arch. A ball-and-socket mechanism works to secure the dentures to the top of the dental implants so the dentures do not slip, shift, or move. This method also allows for an open palate denture, which is often preferred by many patients.
