Traditional dentures present a variety of issues including slipping out of place and increased bone loss. Dentures slipping out of place when talking or eating can be very embarrassing, but worse than that is the fact that the bone below can deteriorate quickly when a denture doesn't fit securely.
In the past, patients with low bone density were not candidates for implant-supported dentures. With All-on-4® in Houston, TX, Dr. Friedberg offers a viable alternative to his patients. The All-on-4® technique gives patients with low bone density the opportunity to experience the stability of implants and has a 98.5 percent success rate.
How It's Done
Dr. Friedberg will strategically place four implants to support a permanent denture. Whether you are replacing an existing denture or getting a new one, you will not ever have to go without teeth. A temporary denture is placed on the same appointment as the implants are inserted, so you will leave your appointment with a functional, new smile.
It takes 4-6 months for the implants to heal and fuse completely to the jawbone. After the healing is complete, the temporary denture is replaced with a new, permanent denture. The denture is permanently anchored so you do not have to remove it for cleaning.
The Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants
All-on-4® Dental Implants help prevent the bone deterioration often seen with traditional denture wearers. The implants stimulate the bone's natural maintenance process, keeping it stronger. Also, the stability that the implants provide prevent the damage that a loose denture causes to the bone structure.
All-on-4® Dental Implants are less costly than single implant replacement and recovery time is greatly reduced. In addition, they are ready for use immediately so you can have a new smile in just one appointment.
