All-On-4® Dental Implants
Are you looking for a permanent and effective dental implant treatment? Our dentists in North San Antonio are proud to offer our patients the All-on-4® dental implant system.
What Are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
The primary benefits of the All-on-4 dental implant system are that they are permanent and can be cared for in the exact same way as natural teeth. To receive these implants, you will need to have a procedure for the four implants to be placed within your jaw. Four implants are placed at different angles in each arch of your mouth.
What Is the Cost of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
If you are considering All-on-4 dental implants, you may be concerned about the overall cost. Due to the fact that they require fewer implants to be placed, All-on-4 dental implants are usually less expensive than other treatment options.
If you are missing one or multiple teeth, you may be interested in dental implants. Our office offers several different types of implants that are available at different price points so that you can choose the right implant for you and your budget.
How Affordable Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants range in price. The amount of money you will pay for them will depend on the type you choose, the materials used, and your overall oral health. Your dental insurance will also play a part in determining what you will pay.
How Are Single Tooth Dental Implants Attached?
Single tooth dental implants are put in during a surgical procedure. This procedure consists of a screw-shaped implant being embedded in the jaw. It will typically take the jaw between two and six months to fuse with the implant. At that point, the dentist will put a natural looking crown on the implant.

What Is a Dental Implant-Supported Bridge?
Dental implant-supported bridges consist of a bridge that is connected to dental implants embedded within the jawbone. They are a great way of replacing missing or severely damaged teeth. Our dentists in North San Antonio are experienced in reconstructing smiles with implant-supported bridges.
How Much Will I Pay for an Implant-Supported Bridge?
Your bill for an implant-supported bridge will be determined by your exact needs. Materials used, insurance coverage, and current oral health status are some of the factors used in figuring out what you will pay.
Dentures are a commonly used way of restoring smiles for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth. However, they often come with the problem of dealing with adhesives. If you want a denture option that avoids adhesives, then implant-supported dentures may be the right option for you.
How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
Implant-supported dentures mimic the function and appearance of the natural teeth while remaining secured inside of the mouth via implants that are surgically placed within the jawbone. They are a long-term option that provide patients with stable teeth.
Can I Afford Implant-Supported Dentures?
Most patients find that the overall cost of implant-supported dentures is based on factors like insurance coverage, their oral health, and the materials used to create the dentures.
