All-On-4® Dental Implants
What Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?
The All-on-4® dental implant treatment concept is an innovative implant placement system that allows a dentist to offer someone a full, permanent denture using only four implants to hold it in place per arch. With fewer implants, the All-on-4® treatment is faster and less expensive than traditional implant-supported denture procedures.
What Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Typically Cost?
We base your All-on-4 dental implant treatment cost on the condition of your mouth and the materials used to craft the denture, in addition to any treatment you may need beforehand. Call our office in Kyle to schedule an appointment and our dentist can offer an estimate after your examination.
What Are Single Tooth Implants?
A single tooth implant consists of a metal post surgically inserted into your jawbone. The bone will grow around the post so it becomes as sturdy as a tooth. A crown, that people can see when you smile, goes on the end of the implant post and abutment. They will not be able to tell that you have a tooth implant because the crown will blend in with your other teeth.
What Do single Tooth Implants Cost?
Does a single missing tooth embarrass you? Do you feel everyone is staring at the spot when you open your mouth? If so, call us to schedule an examination with our dentist. You will learn if you are a good candidate and what it will cost you for a life-like single tooth implant.
Why Are Implant Bridges Better Than Regular Dental Bridges?
Replacing missing adjacent teeth with an implant-supported bridge does not affect adjacent teeth, whereas a traditional bridge forces a dentist to remove tooth structure from the adjacent teeth in order to place crowns. This may undermine the health of the teeth over time.
What’s an Implant-Supported Bridge Going to Cost Me?
Your personal implant bridge cost depends on the number of pontics (artificial teeth) in the bridge and the materials used to fabricate the bridge. Any dental work that you may need before implant surgery will add to your cost. Call us to schedule your appointment. After evaluating your oral health, our dentist can provide you with a quote.
How Secure Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
When you snap on your implant-supported denture in the morning, it stays in the same place all day long. You can yell, chew or eat fruit without worrying about embarrassing dislodgement. When people see you doing these things without fear, they will assume that you were blessed with naturally attractive, healthy teeth.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Worth the Extra Cost?
While you can get traditional acrylic dentures for cheap, you’ll be replacing them often because your gums will keep receding or get sore. Inexpensive acrylic dentures do not work very well for most people. It’s hard to put a price on feeling confident about your smile, but we will do our best to help make implant-supported dentures affordable for you.
Is a Periodontist a Dentist?
A periodontist is a dentist who has completed additional studies after graduating from dental school. Periodontists study the support structure for teeth, the gums. Periodontists treat all stages of gum disease, perform bone and tissue grafts, and they place implants as well. If you need a local periodontist in Kyle, call our office to schedule your appointment.
