All-On-4® Dental Implants
How Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Work?
Tooth loss is a major dental concern that can greatly affect the functioning of your teeth, including your ability to bite and chew food. All-on-4 dental implants is a modern, dental implant method that can restore the beauty and function of your smile with the surgical placement of four dental implants to your jaw. The implants are permanent, comfortable, and look and feel exactly like your natural teeth.
Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Expensive?
All-on-4 dental implants require fewer implants to restore the function and appearance of your smile, which can make the procedure more affordable compared to other implant types. Your All-on-4 implants cost is determined by your insurance coverage, the type of implants you receive, and the materials used to make them.
How Much Are Dental Implants?
In general, your insurance coverage and the type of dental implant used to complete your restoration affects the total cost; however, the crown, abutment, and other materials used during your procedure are included in the dental bridge cost. Schedule an appointment to discover which treatment option is for you and learn more about your expected costs.
How Are Single Implants Attached?
During the single tooth implant procedure, an implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. The implant looks very similar to a titanium post or screw. Once your jaw heals and enough time has passed for the implant to fuse into your jaw, a natural-looking crown is attached to the top of the implant to complete your restoration. The healing process can take between two to six months.
Where Can I Get an Implant-Supported Bridge?
If you are missing several teeth and are looking to improve your smile, you may be a good candidate for a dental implant-supported bridge. Our Pearland dentists offer this treatment option at our dental clinic, so patients can restore the health and function of their smile.
Cost of an Implant-Supported Bridge
Your dental implant bridge cost is based on your specific needs. Factors such as the health of your teeth, whether you require any follow-up visits, and if treatment is covered by your insurance can affect total cost.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Uncomfortable?
After receiving implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy your daily activities without worrying about the adhesives associated with traditional dentures. Your implant overdenture is a comfortable appliance that is secured into place with implants placed into your jaw. This prevents your appliance from slipping or moving while you’re smiling, eating, and talking.
Cost of Implant-Supported Dentures
Your implant-supported overdenture cost can vary and is based on the condition of your teeth, if you have dental insurance, and whether any follow-up appointments are needed. Additionally, the materials used to create the denture can also influence your total cost.
What Does a Periodontist Do?
