All-on-4® Dental Implants
How Do All-on-4® Implants Compare to Dentures?
Unlike dentures that require you to use adhesives to hold them in place, All-on-4® implants are permanently affixed to the jaw using four posts. This means that your new teeth feel and function just like natural teeth. Since the All-on-4® system uses fewer implant posts than traditional implants, you also have a shorter recovery time.
What Does the All-on-4 Procedure Entail?
During the procedure, one of our Greatwood dentists will surgically place the posts that will hold the teeth into the jaw. The crown is attached later once you have healed. You then care for your new teeth just like your natural teeth.
Can I Afford All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Our dentists and staff will work with your insurance provider and help you find payment options that fit your budget. All-on-4 implants typically cost less than traditional implants since they require fewer implant posts. Your final cost will be based on the type of implants used, your insurance coverage, and the complexity of your dental issues.
We pride ourselves on providing personalized care. Our dentists and staff will help you find an implant option to fit your needs and budget. Call today to schedule a consultation.
What Does the Price of My Dental Implants Include?
The cost of your implants will include the abutment posts, the crown, and any other materials or follow-up appointment that may be required. The amount that you pay out-of-pocket will depend on your insurance and whether you have a dental discount plan.
Do You Offer Single Implants?
Our dentists are able to replace a single missing or damaged tooth by placing a screw- or cylinder-shaped post into the jaw and attaching a crown. The crown is made from durable material that is designed to blend in with your natural teeth.
Are Implants an Option for Patients with Multiple Missing Teeth?
Our Greatwood practice is proud to offer implant-supported bridges as an effective and affordable treatment for patients with multiple missing teeth. Call today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
Can I Afford an Implant-Supported Bridge?
Your dental needs and bridge are unique, so the dentist will provide you with an outline of your cost following your initial consultation. Among the factors that will influence the price of your bridge are the overall condition of your teeth, the benefits offered under your insurance plan, and the types of materials used to construct the bridge.
We recommend implant-supported dentures for patients who need all of their teeth replaced but who don’t want to worry about slipping or messy adhesives.
How Often Will I Have to Replace My Implant-Supported Dentures?
As long as you practice good dental hygiene, visit our dentist regularly, and avoid activities that could damage your teeth, your implant-supported dentures should last for many years.
Can I Afford Implant-Supported Dentures?
Our dentists and staff will work with you to make your dentures as affordable as possible. Factors that will influence your final price include the number of follow-up appointments that you will require, the materials used to make your dentures, as well as your insurance coverage.
What Does a Periodontist Do?
A periodontist specializes in diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases of the gums. Our periodontists also oversee the placement of dental implants.
When Should I See a Periodontist?
You may need treatment by one of our periodontists if you have been diagnosed with gum disease. We can recommend deep cleanings and other treatments designed to restore your gum health.
