All-On-4® Dental Implants
Is Surgery for All-on-4® Dental Implants Painful?
With the All-on-4® dental implant system, it only takes four properly placed implants to comfortably support a permanent upper or lower denture. Placing the implants is minor surgery and considered minimally invasive. You may experience minor pain and swelling afterwards. However, patients think this is a small price to pay to have an attractive smile without the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures that slip.
How Much Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Considerations that affect your All-on-4 dental implant cost include whether you are getting an upper or lower denture, the number of extractions needed, your choice of sedation dentistry, and the materials used for the crowns. Call our office to arrange an appointment with one of our experienced dentists to learn more about you will pay for All-on-4 dental implants.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Single Dental Implant?
No one wants a single missing tooth in their mouth, which is why we are glad that many of the individuals who come in for a consultation are good candidates for a dental implant. Age isn’t a concern, but your overall health is an important factor. Certain health problems that interfere with your ability to heal are a concern. Contact us to arrange a consultation with a dentist experienced in placing dental implants. The dentist will evaluate your dental and medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for an implant.
What’s the Dental Implant Price?
Our dental implant price depends on where the missing tooth is located in your mouth, the crown material you select, and several other factors. We will gladly furnish you with an estimated price after you have a thorough examination and X-rays taken.
Is an Implant-Supported Bridge Strong?
Having several missing teeth in a row can result in an unsightly gap that will have a detrimental effect on your self-esteem. We would like to help you with a permanent solution that replaces the teeth without requiring you to have the adjacent teeth filed down for crowns. Your implant bridge will be supported by surgical implants, which are as strong as natural tooth roots.
What Is the Fee for an Implant-Supported Bridge?
The fee for an implant bridge can vary greatly depending on whether you have two adjacent teeth missing or you need a larger bridge with more artificial teeth. The only way that we can give you an estimate is to have you come in, talk about your needs and let us assess your current oral health. Call our office to set up an appointment to see how we can help you.
Why Is an Implant-Supported Denture a Good Option for Current Denture Wearers?
A current denture wearer knows the problems with traditional dentures. Traditional dentures can be uncomfortable, slip, and make eating certain foods nearly impossible. Some people don’t even wear their dentures when they are home because they are just too uncomfortable. Implant-supported dentures are very comfortable and patients who get them wear their dentures more often.
Are Implant Dentures Covered by Dental Insurance?
Dental insurance may pay a percentage of the cost of the denture or the implants, but coverage varies based on the provider and circumstances surrounding the need for the denture. Check with your insurance provider for more information.
