Full Arch Restoration with Solid and Natural-looking All-on-4 Dental Implants
When you have lost all or most of your teeth, traditional dentures may seem like the only option on the table. But now, with improved dental technology, Rolling Oaks Dental in Garden Ridge, Texas, can use dental implants to overcome your extensive tooth loss. Instead of ill-fitting dentures, Drs. Larry Dougherty, Ana Paula Ferraz-Dougherty, and Hania Alkudmani use All-on-4 dental implants to restore your smile to full function. Dubbed one of the most innovative dental restorations, dental implants are solid, predictable, and realistic-looking.
The “root” behind All-on-4 dental implants
Although it’s hard to imagine your mouth without teeth, this unwanted situation can happen because of gum disease, injury, and extensive tooth decay. While dentures can help fill up your mouth gaps, these restorations rest on top of the gums, making them unstable. As a result, many denture wearers may experience embarrassing situations when talking or eating.
All-on-4 dental implants replace your missing teeth using only four implants placed strategically in the mouth. With two implants each at the front and rear, we complete your restoration by attaching a beautiful-looking denture. All-on-4 dental implants offer a superior outcome in all respects, thanks to their secure position in the jawbone.
What to expect from All-on-4 dental implant treatment
All-on-4 dental implants restore your smile by ensuring you don’t stay even a day without teeth. After your consultation, your doctor will surgically place four titanium posts on each jaw to serve as roots for your dental prosthetic. Above the implant fixtures, we snap in a denture to replace your missing teeth.
Since your implants require several months to integrate with the jawbone, we’ll place a temporary restoration over them to ensure you leave our office with a complete smile. Over the next 4-6 months, we’ll leave your implants to heal and fuse with the bone. After this process, you’ll come to our office, where we’ll replace your temporary restoration with a permanent one. That’s it! Now, you can enjoy life and speech with minimal disruptions.
