For patients who are missing most or all of their teeth in one or both dental arches, Dr. Stripling and Dr. Nemovi are pleased to offer All-On-4 dentures as a solution! All-On-4 dentures is a type of dental implant treatment that is designed to completely restore your smile in just one day. If you are missing teeth and are interested in learning more about All-On-4 dentures in Dallas, Texas, we welcome you to call Lake Highlands Dental at 214-343-9280 and set up an appointment with our caring dentists.
All-On-4 dentures is a restorative treatment involving four dental implants and a set of replacement teeth. The dental implants, precisely placed across your dental arch, provides a durable foundation for your restoration. In most cases, patients require at least six dental implants to replace a whole dental arch with an 18-month waiting period before getting your final restoration. This means that you have 18 months with little or no teeth, uncomfortable chewing, and an embarrassing smile. At our practice, however, we utilize All-On-4 to avoid all of these issues and let you walk out of our office with a brand new smile after just one visit!
Because our dentists only use four dental implants, this treatment is less invasive than traditional implant-supported dentures. This also means that you pay less and do not have to undergo as much surgery. Once each implant is properly placed, we will attach an abutment to the top of the implant post, which is where your restoration will attach to your implants. Our dentists will then attach your custom-made dentures to the abutments; these dentures were made prior to the actual All-On-4 procedure, thus ensuring that you walk out with a new smile.
Before proceeding with an All-On-4 treatment, our dentists will perform an oral examination to determine if you are a good candidate. It is important to have enough bone density in your jawbone to support the implants and provide a more stable restoration.
