All-On-4® Dental Implants
How Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Work?
Traditional dental implants provide support for just one tooth per implant. By contrast, the All-on-4® implant procedure can support upper or lower teeth with just four dental implants, significantly reducing the extent of work needed for these procedures. This can allow faster healing and improved comfort for our patients in the Uptown Dallas area. By opting for an All-on-4® dental procedure, you can enjoy the most natural looking teeth and the added confidence of permanently attached dental appliances.
What Will All-on-4® Dental Implants Cost?
All-on-4® dental implants can be more affordable than other permanent dental appliances because they require only four implants per arch. This can significantly lower the cost you pay for these dental treatment options. If cost is still a concern, our office will be happy to work with you to charge your dental plan or to make payment arrangements with you.
How Do Implants Work?
Dental implants are small metal pins, posts or frames that are designed to fuse with bone in the jaw and to become an integral part of the jawbone structure. This process requires a period of healing between the implantation of the pin and the application of a dental appliance to the implant. Bridges, dentures and individual teeth are among the most common appliances that can be attached to dental implants to become a permanent part of your mouth.
How Much Are Dental Implant Fees?
If you are covered by dental insurance, part of the cost of your dental implant procedures may be covered by your plan. Our staff members will discuss your payment options with you and will work to help keep your out-of-pocket costs to a reasonable level. This can help you to manage the costs of your treatment and can allow you to enjoy the greatest financial flexibility when dealing with your dental care expenses.
What Is Involved in Placing an Implant Bridge?
An implant-supported bridge can fill in gaps left by missing teeth and can help you restore your smile to its former beauty. Our dental team can design and construct a bridge to match your natural teeth. Dental implants are then used to secure these bridges to your jaw, allowing you to enjoy permanent replacement teeth and greater confidence in your personal appearance.
Are There Set Costs for Implant-Supported Bridges?
The cost of your implant-supported bridge will depend on the cost of materials, the fees to place the implant and bridge, and the number of implants needed to hold it in place securely. We will discuss all aspects of your treatment with you, including the costs. This will allow you to plan more effectively for these expenses.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Effective for Tooth Loss?
Implant-supported dentures work in the same way as implant-supported bridges. Dentures typically contain more teeth and are usually a replacement for all upper or lower teeth. These appliances may require additional implants to provide adequate support and ensure the greatest strength and longevity.
What About the Price for Implant-Supported Dentures?
From your first consultation to the appointment to place your dentures, we will work closely with you to provide you with accurate cost estimates for your dental care and to help you with payment options that suit your needs.
Are Periodontists Specialized Dentists?
Periodontists can diagnose and treat gum disease, including gingivitis and more severe forms of the disease. These dental specialists can also provide assistance in determining the right placement and positioning for your dental implants.
