All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants are a type of implant-supported full-arch restoration for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. This treatment concept involves placing four dental implants in the jawbone to support a fixed dental bridge or denture. The name "All-on-4" refers to the fact that a full set of teeth can besupported by only four implants, making it a cost-effective and efficient solution for tooth replacement. The implants are strategically placed in areas of the jawbone with the highest bone density, which maximizes stability and avoids the need for bone grafting in some cases.
Once the implants are placed, a temporary set of teeth is attached, allowing patients to have functional teeth immediately after the procedure. After a healing period, a permanent , custom-made dental bridge or denture is created and securely attached to the implants. All-on-4 dental implants provide a stable and natural-looking solution for patients with missing teeth, restoring their ability to bite, chew, and smile with confidence. It's important to consult with a qualified dental professional to determine if you're a suitable candidate for this procedure and to receive personalized advice.
Implants Attached Denture
Implant with a ball attachment or locator-attached retained denture is a solution to replace all missing teeth. This type of denture utilizes as few as two dental implants as anchors for the denture. A full set of upper or lower dentures snaps into these anchor points, giving you teeth that allow for more natural function since they shift less and give better retention than traditional dentures. Some soreness and some shifting are still possible, so it is important to trust Dr. Dang and his team to fit your dentures and provide any necessary adjustments over time. It’s also important to keep your dentures clean, especially from debris like crumbs or seeds, as they can cause discomfort.
