All-On-4® Dental Implants
Are All-on-4® Dental Implants Durable?
An All-on-4® dental implant is a permanent denture that replaces your upper or lower teeth. The denture rests comfortably on four implants. Yes, All-on-4 implants are very durable; in fact, they may even last a lifetime. Traditional dentures will need relining or replacing every few years as the jawbone deteriorates.
What Do All-on-4 Implants Cost?
Since we customize a treatment plan to meet your unique needs, you would have to come in to our office if you would like an accurate estimate of your total cost for the All-on-4 procedure. The quality of the denture that you select and the diagnostic procedures that you will need before implant surgery are just two of the factors that will affect your final cost. Call us today to schedule your appointment with an All-on-4 dentist.
How Are Single Tooth Implants Secured to the Jawbone?
Our implant specialist surgically implants a small titanium post or screw that serves as an artificial tooth root for a missing natural tooth. The material used for the implant usually is titanium, which is biocompatible and safe for most patients. The implant fuses with your bone to serve as an anchor for a crown that will replace your missing tooth. The crown is what creates the appearance of a natural tooth, while the implant provides support.
What Is the Fee for a Dental Implant?
Our fee for a dental implant depends on the crown material used and whether you need any additional procedures before a dentist or periodontist can place the implant. We will gladly give you a specific cost estimate after examining your mouth. Call us today for an appointment.
How Do Implant-Supported Bridges Work?
If you are missing two or more teeth in a row, an implant-supported bridge can easily cover the gap with three life-like crowns supported by implants. With an implant-supported procedure the adjacent teeth are left untouched as they are not necessary to support the bridge. Contact our office to arrange a consultation and discover if you are a good candidate for implants.
Can I Get Insurance to Pay for the Implant Bridge?
Dental insurance might not cover elective implants. However, depending on your situation, your dental insurance provider may cover a portion of the cost. You also might be eligible for flexible financing or a dental discount program, allowing you to offset your costs. If you’ve been in an accident, your medical insurance may pay for the cost of an implant-supported bridge to replace the missing teeth.
Are There Different Types of Implant-Supported Dentures?
The kinds of implants you receive for your implant-supported dentures may be different depending on your preference or budget. As mentioned before, All-on-4 dentures require less healing time and only four dentures. If you decide on traditional implants, you may need one implant for each missing tooth. One of our experienced dentists will discuss your options with you to help you make the choice that suits your lifestyle and your budget. Please call us to arrange an appointment. You’ll learn more about your options for replacing your traditional dentures with reliable, secure dentures that are more comfortable to wear.
How Much Will Implant-Supported Dentures Cost Me?
Several factors will impact your implant-supported dentures cost, which is why patients pay different amounts. Factors that influence the cost include the type of implants chosen, the quality of the denture, and any preparatory procedures that you may need before your implant surgery.
