If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for multiple missing teeth, our dentist may recommend All-on-4® implants, or implant-supported dentures. These are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. All-on-4® implants are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.

The first step in anchoring your denture with All-on-4® implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, All-on-4® implants only requires four dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top. Implants provide your denture with exceptional stability and provide you a full mouth reconstruction. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function like their natural teeth.
