All-On-4® Dental Implants
How Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Support a Denture?
The All-on-4® dental implant system relies on special placement of the implants for maximum strength. Two implants go where your incisors used to be in the anterior section of the mouth. The last two implants are at a 45-degree angle in the posterior, which is what makes this system so unique. This minimally invasive procedure shortens healing time and improves stability.
What Will All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost Without Insurance?
Our implant dentist can tell you your cost for your All-on-4 denture after a thorough examination. There are costs that you can control, such as the quality of the denture that you select and costs that you cannot control, such as needing gum disease treatment before implant surgery. Call us to schedule an appointment with one of our dentists. He or she will provide you with an estimate of your cost for an All-on-4 dental implant procedure.
How Many Parts Does a Single Dental Implant Contain?
A dental implant contains a biocompatible metal post that acts as a tooth root, an abutment that holds the crown and the crown. Our dentist surgically inserts the rod into your jawbone and then you have to wait while the bone grows around the post. During your second surgery, our dentist will open your gum to place the abutment. Attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.
What Is the Usual Price for a Dental Implant?
Typically, the cost for the materials used to restore your tooth and any insurance you have will determine the cost. Your insurance may cover a portion of the cost for your tooth implant, but you will need to confirm with them to be sure. Call us to schedule an appointment and we can give you an estimate of the total cost.
When Is an Implant-Supported Bridge a Good Choice?
When you have multiple missing teeth in a row, an implant bridge may be your best solution. Removable partial dentures and fixed bridges rely on healthy teeth for support, which can weaken the adjacent teeth. An implant bridge has its own artificial tooth roots for support.
What Is the Price for an Implant Bridge?
To learn what the estimated price for your implant bridge will be, we need you to come in for an examination first. The health of your gum and jaw influence your total cost. Additionally, the number of crowns that you need plays a major role in the price for your implant bridge.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Ever Slip?
An implant-supported denture is a denture that looks like a regular denture, except it can snap onto abutments on implants, where it is secure and cannot move. The problem that most people have with a traditional denture is that it does not stay in place. Once you put on your implant-supported dentures, they stay in place without the use of messy denture adhesive. Only when you remove the denture to clean it will the denture detach.
What Will an Implant Denture Cost?
We cannot provide an accurate price for an implant-supported denture unless you come in for an examination. Upper and lower dentures can be different prices. Moreover, we don’t know how much your insurance will provide and if you need any pre-treatments completed. If you need a new denture, the quality of the denture also affects your final cost.
