We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If you know somebody with a traditional denture, then you know the number one complaint is that they can feel funny in the mouth and slip at inopportune times, such as while eating, singing, or laughing. Now more denture-wearers than ever are turning to the All-on-4® Treatment Concept. This revolutionary procedure uses four dental implants to hold the denture permanently in place. It’s quickly become a preferred option for people who have lost their teeth due to gum disease, injury, or tooth decay.
Often called a permanent denture, the All-on-4 implant-supported denture remains firmly attached to your jaw, offering the appearance and comfort of natural teeth. Additionally, the All-on-4 Treatment Concept eliminates the need for the messy adhesives and nightly cleanings required with traditional removable dentures. You simply brush and floss the denture just as you would natural teeth. Best of all, the All-on-4 secured denture eliminates those embarrassing incidents of the artificial teeth slipping or falling out at unexpected moments.
Our dentist at Towncare Dental of Hialeah Square completed the extensive All-on-4 Treatment Concept training and has been helping people improve their smiles with no-slip dentures ever since. Please call our office today at (786) 838-4145 to find out how our experienced dentist can help you, too.
Benefits of the All-on-4 Implant-Supported Denture Treatment
Nobel Biocare, a world leader in dental technology, developed the innovative All-on-4 dental implant treatment in 1998. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have chosen All-on-4 dental implant treatment to give them their smile back.
Traditional dental implant surgery often requires repeated visits to the dentist to receive bone grafts needed to build up the jawbone so the jaw can support the implants. With the All-on-4 Treatment Concept, most people don’t require bone grafts. Patients can get their implants in a single day and enjoy the comfort and natural appearance of their permanent dentures supported by All-on-4 dental implants. After the All-on-4 procedure, patients leave their implant-placement appointment with a temporary denture. In some cases, they can even have their permanent denture placed. That’s frequently referred to as “teeth-in-a-day.”
And, because All-on-4 dental implants require fewer implants and less-invasive surgery, it is typically less costly than traditional implant surgery.
How the All-on-4 Treatment Procedure Works
While other types of implant-supported dentures require six or eight implants to hold the row of teeth in place, our dentist at Towncare Dental of Hialeah Square uses just four All-on-4 dental implants to permanently attach a complete denture or bridge to the upper or lower jaw.
After you’ve been comfortably sedated, the dentist will place two small titanium posts directly into the jawbone in the front of your mouth and two more titanium posts tilted at a 45-degree angle in the back of your mouth. The 45-degree angle allows the dentist to place the implants deeper into the jawbone than is possible with traditional implants. As a result, the bone grafts that accompany traditional dental implant surgery are usually unnecessary.
The titanium posts that make up the implants are compatible with human bone. Therefore, the jawbone will begin to fuse around the implants within a few months, holding them in place for decades. After the All-on-4 dental implants have fused with the jawbone, the dentist will attach the permanent bridge or denture that has been custom-made to match the shape and shade of natural teeth. Your friends won’t be able to tell the difference between your prosthetic teeth and the real thing.
In addition to providing a permanent support for a denture or bridge, your All-on-4 dental implants will prevent the natural deterioration of the jawbone that occurs when it no longer has roots supporting it. This deterioration can give denture wearers a haggard appearance. With All-on-4 dental implants, the face maintains its proper proportions and has fewer wrinkles. You’ll have a natural-looking smile that will last a lifetime.
