The first known dentures were worn in the 5th
century BC and everyone who has dentures today knows that the
technology is three thousand years outdated. What a pain, not only
in daily dealing with your dentures, but real, literal pain from
loose fitting and sore-inducing appliances that eventually destroy
bone! Many dentures don't look right, they can loosen and fall out
at the most inopportune times, the cleaning can be tedious and there
are foods that cannot be eaten.
There's a better way.
All-on-4 dentures were developed about thirty
years ago. They solve all of the problems we just mentioned. In a
nutshell, four screws are placed into the jawbone where teeth once
grew. These screws hold a titanium framework that, in turn, holds
acrylic, composite or porcelain teeth that are designed to look
identical to real teeth.
Once placed, the dentures are treated just like
your original teeth. Laugh, smile and throw away your denture bond!
Care for them and brush them just like you used to brush your own
But what if you are missing only a couple
While All-on-4 refers to replacement of an
entire set of teeth, uppers or lowers, you can still receive an
implant for one or more missing teeth. The same procedure applies in
that a screw is placed into the root space and the new "tooth" is
then secured to the screw.
The first step in replacing your dentures with
an All-on-4 implant is to schedule an appointment with Johnson
Dental. Dr. Israel, an extremely skilled and experienced dental
surgeon, will examine you, review your dental and medical history
and determine if implants would be your best option. Next, you will
receive a quick facial CT for a 3D look at the bone structure to
insure bone strength and absence of abnormalities that might cause
Another appointment will be scheduled for
placement of the implant. This procedure can take a couple hours,
but you could actually leave the office that day with a brand new
set of teeth- permanently!
