all-on-four implant denturesIf you have lived with missing teeth, you’ve probably heard of dental implants that provide a base for a set of dentures–but you may not know about the unique benefits of all-on-four dental implants. This system allows us to give you a full arch of dentures on only four dental implants.

Since dental implants replace natural tooth roots, it makes sense to think that each tooth should need to be replaced with a separate implant, right? It’s actually easier than that, thanks to advances in digital imaging and scanning technology. The truth is that, by making full use of your healthy  jaw bones, we can now attach a full arch to only four implants. The best part of this system is that you can leave your implant placement procedure with a new arch of dentures the very same day!

Fresno Dental Studio is proud to offer all-on-four dental implants to improve our patients’ lives. To learn more about this system, contact our Fresno, CA dental office today online or by calling (559) 297-1294.

The Benefits of All-On-Four Dental Implants

All-on-four dental implants give you a set of teeth that look, feel, and act more like natural teeth. With sturdy attachments at the implant sites, your denture will stay in place when you bite and chew. You’ll never have to navigate your meal choices by selecting only the foods that won’t dislodge your dentures or irritate your gums. The dentures use the force of your jawbone to chew, so they feel more like your original teeth. Patients who receive all-on-four implant dentures have access to wider nutritional choices and can dine confidently once again, knowing they don’t have to worry about unstable dentures.

Perhaps the best benefit of this system is that implant dentures are a better choice for your oral health and the health of your bones. Once your implants have fused permanently with your jaw bone, they will promote the continued health of your facial bones, so you won’t have to worry about diminishing facial structure.

All-on-Four Dental Implants: How It Works

Here’s what you can expect if you are interested in all-on-four dental implants:

Step 1 – Consultation and Treatment Plan – At your consultation, Dr. Denes will use enhanced imaging techniques, such as cone beam scanning and digital x-rays to map the dimensions of your soft and hard tissues. When we can see the exact proportions of your bone and gum tissue, we can determine the best location for dental implants to provide the greatest stability. Rather than guessing at their placement, we know exactly where to put the implant so it will stay in place and bond with your jaw bone.

We will also assess your oral and overall health to make sure you are a good candidate for implants. If you have systemic health concerns, this may affect your ability to heal from dental implants and the stability of the final implant restoration. Luckily, there are many customized treatments we can offer if you have health issues, such as bone grafting for compromised bone health or reduced bone mass.

Step 2 – Dental Implant Placement – At your surgery, we will place the implants at strategic sites in the jawbone and attach a temporary denture. You will go home with a fixed temporary denture, which can be used as soon as you feel comfortable eating again.

Step 3 – Osseointegration – The real magic of implant dentistry occurs in the months after your implants are placed. Over time, your body responds to implants by growing new bone tissue in the ridges around the base of each implant. This new bone growth ensures your implants bond with your jaw for a permanent restoration.

Step 4 – Permanent Restoration – When your implants are fully healed and fused to your jawbone, your permanent arch of dentures will be provided for long term use. Your dentures can be removable or fixed, depending on which option best suits your lifestyle.

Implant-based dentures are easy to care for and improve your quality of life. If you are ready to learn more, call Fresno Dental Studio today!
