We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If you’re in a social situation and your teeth fall out, it can be very embarrassing. Similarly, you’d also feel embarrassed if they slid around while you were conversing or chewing. If this has happened to you and you want to prevent it from ever recurring, then call our Springfield dental office to learn about a revolutionary dental procedure called All-on-4 dental implants. An All-on-4 implant denture is permanently anchored to four titanium posts in your jaw, so your dentures can never slip or fall out. Whether your teeth have been lost due to the aging process, trauma, decay or disease, we can help you. Call us today to learn more.
Are All-on-4 Implants Full Dentures?
The All-on-4 technique uses a full denture or a full bridge that’s permanently attached to four titanium posts in your jaw; two in the front and two in the back. All-on-4 dental implants can be used on both the upper jaw and the lower jaw, and they’ll require the same maintenance that your natural teeth require. They’re permanently installed, so there’s no need to worry about them falling out or slipping. With their very natural appearance and their security of installation, they’re an excellent alternative to traditional dentures or traditional implants. Call our Springfield office to learn more.
How Do I Have All-on-4 Implants Installed?
When you come to our office for your first appointment, your All-on-4 dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to determine if you need additional work. If you do, then we’ll do the additional work before we start on your All-on-4 treatment. If not, then you’ll be given a mild sedative and your All-on-4 dentist will place your front and back implants. We’ll provide you with a temporary denture to wear in the interim so that you won’t be without teeth while your incision sites heal. You’ll also receive aftercare instructions that must be followed faithfully so that an infection doesn’t set in and delay the installation of your permanent dentures.
When the sites have healed, you’ll return to our office and we’ll install your permanent All-on-4 implant dentures. Your All-on-4 dentures are custom made so that they’ll match your existing teeth in both color and shape. If you’re interested in having All-on-4 dental implants in Springfield, call us and make an appointment.
Will I Have Special All-on-4 Before and After Care Instructions?
You’ll have special care instructions after the implants are installed and after the All-on-4 implant dentures are installed. They’ll be clear and easy to follow, but it’s important that you adhere to your care instructions. If not, you may develop an infection that will hinder the progress of your procedure. Call us if you have additional questions or want to schedule an appointment.
How Much Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
Your All-on-4 implant dentures cost will be unique to you and will depend on the amount of additional work that you need, the type of denture you select, and your insurance coverage. If you want to have All-on-4 implant dentures in Springfield but can’t afford them, then call our office to learn about our financing plans. We don’t want you to forego needed dentistry because of financial constraints, so call us today.
What’s the Difference Between All-on-4 Dentures And Traditional Implants?
The All-on-4 system uses a full dental arch that’s anchored by four implants. Traditional dental implants, on the other hand, can require up to 10 implants per arch plus a bone graft. The All-on-4 method doesn’t usually require a bone graft, so it’s considerably less invasive. However, both result in permanently installed teeth that look and function like your natural teeth.
Why Are Traditional Dentures Less Stable Than All-on-4 Dentures?
Traditional dentures rest atop your gums but aren’t anchored in place unless you use dental adhesive, and dental adhesive is messy and temporary. All-on-4 implants are anchored to four implants in your jaw, so they won’t slip or slide or fall out. All-on-4 implants also help retain the structural integrity of your jaw, which traditional dentures don’t.
