Restore Aesthetics, Function and Health with Implant Supported Options
If you have a full arch of missing teeth and are dissatisfied with dentures, you may be a good candidate for a full arch replacement with implant supported dentures or All-on-4® implants. With both of these techniques, a set of dental implants is used to support a custom-made denture or bridge, which will not slip or click. Using implants to anchor the prosthetic device in place not only provides a more stable bite, but improves the look of the smile and reduces the risk of bone loss. These full arch solutions can restore your smile and build a new level of confidence.
Implant Supported Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures
Unlike traditional dentures, implant supported dentures involve placing a set of dental implants into the jaw to serve as a foundation for your dentures. The dental implants are placed in areas where you have the most bone tissue available and are intended to last a lifetime. The denture then attaches to these implants to provide more stability, a stronger bite and a natural appearance.
All-on-4 for a Permanent Tooth Replacement in One Visit
All-on-4 can help to achieve a lasting, natural-looking smile. During the first consultation, Dr. Ferrier will discuss your needs and goals before taking a CT scan. On the second appointment, Dr. Ferrier will work with your periodontist in the surgical suite to place the dental implants with a custom prosthetic made in-house. Patients are never without any teeth during this process since the dental implant surgery and placement of a prosthesis can be completed in one visit.
Benefits of Full-Arch Solutions
Dr. Ferrier is an experienced prosthodontist and has received advanced training in dental implant procedures. Full-arch solutions offer a number of benefits to patients, including:
Permanent results with proper care
Prevention of bone degeneration
Stability while in the mouth
Improves ability to chew food
Different Procedures, Similar Results
When you want a full-arch tooth replacement solution, there are many options available to you, including All-on-4, TeethXpress®, and Teeth-in-a-Day™. These systems provide you with similar results—a beautiful, functional new smile—but take different approaches to get there. All-on-4 and TeethXpress are processes that both can be used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth in one day and with minimal dental implants used. The difference between the two is the brand of implant used. Teeth-in-a-Day use the same brand of implants as All-on-4, but is not limited to full-arch replacement only. This system can replace individual missing teeth or even create dental bridges using implants. Whatever dental implant process you choose will still give you the functional and aesthetically pleasing appearance you deserve.
