All-On-4® Dental Implants
Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Look Natural?
Yes, All-on-4® dental implants look perfectly natural. Since you will be able to eat any food you wish, speak clearly and care for the teeth as you do natural teeth, no one will know that they are not your own teeth unless you tell them. These modern implants use just four implants per arch to support a whole set of replacement teeth, saving patients time and money.
Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Expensive?
All-on-4 dental implants are far less expensive than a full mouth of implants and they are more cost effective than dentures, which have to be replaced or relined every three to five years. After a clinical assessment, we can provide you with an estimate of your All-on-4 dental implant cost.
What Are the Costs for Implants?
When you consider that an implant can last 20 to 30 years, it is a cost-effective solution for a missing tooth in the long-term. Factors that will influence your cost include where the missing tooth is located, whether there is any treatment needed first, and the quality of the implant material. We tailor your treatment to your unique needs, so prices will vary. If you have a dental plan or dental insurance that covers a single implant or multiple implants, these may defray a portion of the cost.
Why Are Single Dental Implants Popular?
A dental implant is the closest thing to a natural tooth available, in both appearance and function. The implant acts as a root, fusing into your jawbone to provide the biting and chewing strength that you need to eat any foods that you want. The crown is custom-made and fabricated to blend in with your other teeth. If you need a consultation with a skilled local implant specialist, call our office today.
How Many Implants Are Needed for an Implant-Supported Bridge?
Implant-supported bridges do not use adjacent crowned teeth for support; instead, the bridge is supported by the implants. If you have three or four missing teeth, you will generally need one implant per tooth in order to support the bridge. Then, once your implants have healed the restoration teeth are connected together to form a bridge and attached to the implants.
What Is the Typical Implant-Supported Bridge Fee?
The fees for implant-supported bridges vary, depending on the number of implants and the number of pontics or crowns. Other services that may be needed, such as extractions and tissue grafts, will add to the cost. Contact our office to request a consultation. Our dental implant professionals can go over your needs and then give you an estimate of your total cost.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Removable?
Yes, you can take implant-retained dentures, or overdentures, out to clean them. They are ideal for a person who is unhappy with traditional dentures that are not stable, clink, or fall out at the most embarrassing moments. Implant-supported dentures offer improved chewing ability and allow you to speak normally.
