All-On-4® Dental Implants
Why Are All-on-4® Dental Implants Popular?
All-on-4® dental implants are popular because it only takes four implants, with two strategically placed at a 45-degree angle, to hold a denture that replaces either your top or bottom teeth. After the procedure, you appearance and self-confidence will show a dramatic improvement. You’ll also noticed a decreased healing time and improved biting power with the All-on-4® implants.
What Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
The answer depends on whether you get both your upper and lower arch done at the same time or separately, and your choice of crown or artificial teeth materials. Call our office to schedule an appointment so our dentist can create a custom treatment plan for you. Once you have your treatment plan, we can provide you with an estimate of the costs involved.
What Are My Other Options to Replace One Missing Tooth Besides a Dental Implant?
You could opt for a traditional bridge or a partial denture if you want to replace a few missing teeth; however, neither of these options addresses the issue of replacing one missing tooth. Additionally, both rely on healthy teeth for support, which can create problems with the remaining healthy teeth. Instead, we recommend a single tooth implant.
What Is the Total Cost For Dental Implants?
If you come in for an examination and X-rays, we can give you an estimate of your total cost for one implant, the abutment and a crown made out of the material that you select. If you need an extraction, sinus lift or any other preliminary procedure, we will let you know how much it will add to your total cost. Call our office today to schedule your exam.
Is an Implant Bridge a Better Value Than a Traditional Bridge?
Typically, an implant-supported bridge will last 20 years or more, while you will have to replace a traditional bridge at least twice during this time. Moreover, an implant-supported bridge feels natural. When you chew, the implant stimulates your jawbone as a real tooth root would. The stimulation helps prevent bone loss, which preserves your facial features. It’s hard to put a price on preventing premature aging.
Can I Get Dental Insurance to Pay for an Implant Bridge?
If you have dental insurance, it may pay for the cost of a traditional bridge, leaving you to pay the difference. Typically, plans pay for the least expensive option. Coverage varies, so consider checking with your dental insurance provider. Contact our office if you have any questions.
Do I Take an Implant-Supported Denture Out at Night?
Yes, you will take the denture out to clean the denture and to clean around the abutments. Our dentist will go over the oral hygiene procedure you will need to perform to keep your implant dentures in great shape. While you can snap your dentures off at night, they will never move or slip while you are wearing them.
What’s the Price for Implant Dentures?
Please call our office to schedule an appointment. Our dentist will examine your gums and take X-rays to evaluate the health of your jawbone. Additionally, he or she will go over your dental and medical health history in order to provide a quote for your implant dentures.
Ia a Periodontist a Specialist?
Yes, periodontists generally limit their practice to the gums and the bone that provide the support structure for teeth. Periodontics is a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association. If you need an appointment with a local periodontist, please give our office a call.
