We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. 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 wear traditional removable dentures and have had embarrassing experiences with your dentures slipping while enjoying a meal, talking, or singing, call our team at Towncare Dental of Pembroke Pines today. We offer a revolutionary alternative to traditional dentures called the All-on-4® Treatment Concept. The All-on-4 treatment uses four dental implants to hold the denture permanently in place, 24-hours-a-day, eliminating those humiliating incidents caused by dentures slipping or falling out at unexpected moments. The All-on-4 Treatment Concept has become the popular option for people who have lost their teeth due to gum disease or tooth decay.
An All-on-4 implant-supported denture is often referred to as a permanent denture. It keeps the denture permanently fixed to your gums, providing the comfort and appearance of natural teeth. Moreover, it eliminates the need for the messy adhesives and nightly cleanings necessary with traditional removable dentures. You simply brush and floss the denture just as you would natural teeth. And there’s never a fear that the permanent denture could fall or be dropped on the ground, like there is with a removable denture.
Our dentist at Towncare Dental of Pembroke Pines has been specially trained in the All-on-4 Treatment Concept and has been helping people in Pembroke Pines smile with no-slip dentures ever since. Please call our office today at (954) 719-6278 to find out how our dentist can help you, too.
Benefits of the All-on-4 Implant-Supported Denture Treatment
A world leader in dental technology, Nobel Biocare developed the All-on-4 dental implant treatment in 1998. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have opted for All-on-4 dental implant therapy because it takes less time than other procedures and prevents dentures from slipping.
Traditional dental implant surgery often requires repeated visits to your dental office for bone grafts to build up the jawbone so it can support the implants. With the All-on-4 Treatment Concept, however, bone grafts are usually not necessary. In addition, the All-on-4 Treatment Concept requires fewer implants than traditional implant procedures. As a result, patients heal more quickly and are able to enjoy the comfort and natural appearance of their permanent dentures supported by All-on-4 dental implants sooner. During one appointment, patients leave the dental office with their All-on-4 implants attached to a temporary denture. In some cases, they can even have their permanent denture attached to their All-on-4 implants the same day. This is referred to as “teeth-in-a-day.”
With fewer implants and less-invasive surgery, the All-on-4 Treatment Concept is typically less costly than traditional implant surgery.
How the All-on-4 Treatment Procedure Works
All-on-4 dental implant therapy uses just four dental implants to permanently attach a complete denture or bridge to the upper or lower jaw.
After you’ve been comfortably sedated, the dentist or specialist 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. The angle eliminates the need for the bone grafts that often accompany traditional dental implant surgery.
Because titanium is compatible with human bone, the jawbone will begin to fuse around the implants in a few months, firmly and permanently locking the new implants in place. After the All-on-4 dental implants have fused with the jawbone, you’ll return to our Towncare Dental of Pembroke Pines to replace your temporary denture or bridge with a permanent one that has been custom-made to match the shape and shade of your original teeth. You’ll have a hard time distinguishing between your dentures supported by All-on-4 dental implants and the real thing.
In addition to providing a strong support for a complete row of prosthetic teeth, your All-on-4 dental implants will prevent natural deterioration of the jawbone that occurs when it no longer has roots supporting it. This deterioration can give denture wearers a gaunt appearance. With All-on-4 dental implants, your face maintains its proper proportions and reduces wrinkles, giving you a more youthful appearance.
