We are open - safety is our top priority!
There’s nothing more frustrating for people who wear removable dentures than having them slip or fall out while enjoying a meal or engaged in a conversation. G&G Dental Associates in Tamarac has a solution that’s quickly becoming a popular option for people who have lost their teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease. The revolutionary All-on-4® Treatment Concept uses four dental implants to hold the denture permanently in place.
Often referred to as a permanent denture, the All-on-4 implant-supported denture is permanently fixed to your jaw, offering the comfort and appearance of natural teeth. Best of all, the All-on-4 dental implant solution eliminates those embarrassing incidents caused by dentures slipping or falling out at unexpected moments.
With the All-on-4 Treatment Concept, there’s no longer a need for messy adhesives to keep them in place or the nightly removal and cleaning required with traditional removable dentures. You simply brush and floss the permanent denture while it’s in your mouth, just as you would natural teeth.
Our dentist at G&G Dental Associates has completed the extensive training in the All-on-4 Treatment Concept and has been helping people in Tamarac smile with no-slip dentures ever since. Please call our office today at (954) 246-4835 to find out how our dentist can help you.
Benefits of the All-on-4 Implant-Supported Denture Treatment
Nobel Biocare, a world leader in dental innovation, 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 prevents embarrassing incidents of dentures slipping and requires less-invasive surgery than traditional dental implants.
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, most people don’t require bone grafts. 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 a single dental visit, patients walk out with their All-on-4 implants attached to a temporary denture. In some cases, they can even get their permanent denture the same day they receive their All-on-4 implants. That’s frequently referred to as “teeth-in-a-day.”
Because the All-on-4 Treatment Concept requires fewer implants and less-invasive surgery, is usually less expensive than traditional implant surgery.
How the All-on-4 Treatment Procedure Works
All-on-4 dental implant therapy involves using just four dental implants to permanently attach a complete denture or bridge. Both terms mean a complete row of prosthetic upper or lower teeth.
After you’ve been lightly 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 used in the All-on-4 Treatment Concept allows the dentist to place the implants deeper into the jawbone than is possible with traditional implants. Therefore, the bone grafts that often accompany traditional dental implant surgery are no longer necessary.
Because titanium is a metal that is compatible with human bone, the jawbone will begin to fuse around the implants in a few months, firmly and permanently locking your new implants into place. After the All-on-4 dental implants have fused with the jawbone, you’ll return to G&G Dental Associates to have your temporary denture or bridge replaced with a permanent one that is custom-made to match the shape and shade of your original teeth. People won’t be able to distinguish your dentures supported by All-on-4 dental implants from the real thing.
In addition to providing a strong support for a complete row of teeth, your All-on-4 dental implants will prevent further deterioration of the jawbone that naturally occurs when it no longer has roots to support it. This deterioration can give denture wearers a drawn, haggard appearance. With All-on-4 dental implants, your face looks fuller, has fewer wrinkles and appears more youthful.
