2 Locations to Conveniently Serve You
Reclaim Your Smile in Just One Day
Many people who rely on a denture are extremely frustrated. The prosthetic is uncomfortable, it’s constantly shifting around, and some are afraid it will simply fall out at the worst possible moment. If you’re looking to upgrade your denture, All-On-4 in Brookfield is exactly what you need. Using the power of dental implants, it can help you finally get the reliable set of teeth you deserve. Plus, the procedure can be completed in just one day for maximum convenience!
How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
With traditional dentures, they are held in place using either small metal clasps or natural suction, but with All-On-4, the teeth are secured directly to the jawbone using just 4 dental implants.
The implants act like tooth roots, and they even bond directly to the surrounding jawbone just like natural ones. The denture simply snaps onto them. This not only gives the denture an extremely strong foundation, but the implants also stimulate the jawbone and prevent the bone loss that is common after tooth loss. As a result, patients can look forward to their denture maintaining its initial fit for many years.
And even better, the implants can be placed and restored with the denture all at the same appointment, helping patients completely renew their smile in record time.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?
If you are currently missing most of or all of your teeth along a single row, then All-On-4 implants may be a good option for you. At a consultation here at Elmbrook Family Dental, our team will perform a brief oral exam and take a medical history to make sure that dental implants can be safely placed into your mouth. Qualified implant patients need to have 3 main things: good dental health, stable overall health, and enough jawbone to hold the implants. If any of those factors is missing, it will need to be addressed before the procedure can begin.
What are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?
- Security: Because the All-On-4 denture is anchored to the jawbone just like natural teeth, it’s extremely stable, especially compared to a removable prosthetic. This security allows patients to eat a much wider variety of foods with ease, including cooked meats and fibrous vegetables.
- Convenience: As we touched on earlier, you can receive an All-On-4 denture in just one visit here at Elmbrook Family Dental, meaning you won’t have to wait for weeks on end or attend several appointments to get your new smile.
- Comfort: All-On-4 dentures are less bulky than traditional ones because they don’t require large plates or metal bars to stay in place. They leave much more room in the mouth, allowing for the tongue to move more freely.
- Longevity: Most regular dentures have to be replaced every 5-7 years, but with the proper care, All-On-4 dental implants can easily last for decades, or even for the rest of a patient’s life.
All-On-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants
Normally, one dental implant root would be used to support a single crown or maybe a fixed bridge, letting it restore up to 4 teeth in a row. The advantage that All-On-4 presents is that an entire row of teeth can be replaced using just 4 strategically placed implants. This simplifies the procedure, makes it much less expensive than replacing each tooth individually, and is key to it being completed in just one appointment. Less is more when it comes to All-On-4, and the end result is always a strong and healthy smile.
