What are All-on-4® implant-supported dentures?
All-on-4® implants supported dentures are a custom dental solution that uses implants and a Prettau bridge to replace an entire arch of teeth. This offers a natural look and feel of your normal teeth, without the embarrassing moments and discomfort associated with traditional dentures. At Willow Bend Dental, we can help patients live life to their fullest again by offering this revolutionary technology.
Problems with Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures can cause sore gums and for most patients, are generally uncomfortable. Patients are forced to use denture adhesives to help keep their dentures in place, but sometimes they can fall out, causing embarrassing moments to occur. Also, dentures typically prohibit patients from eating their favorite foods such as corn on the cob and steak. The solid palette of traditional dentures also affects taste, which can make even the best meals bland and unexciting.
How do All-on-4® Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
At Willow Bend Dental, our doctors perform a complete assessment using 3D Cat Scan technology to see if a patient is a good candidate for All-on-4® Implant Supported Dentures. Our dentists, Ritchie Beougher, DDSand Herman Butler, Jr. DDS uses biocompatible titanium implants that are implanted directly into a patient’s jaw bone for maximum stability and comfort. If a patient does not have enough healthy bone, our dentists can perform a bone graph using a process called osseointegration. Once healed, which can take 3-6 months, the implants can be safely implanted.
Once the implants are stable, our doctors will create a custom implant-supported bridge which is made incredibly strong materials, which permanently fits onto and screws into the implants.
