What Are Implant-Secured Dentures?
Implant-secured dentures are a permanent dental restoration. Unlike traditional removable dentures, implant-secured dentures, commercially called All-On-Four, are secured in the mouth using dental implants. They are designed to become a permanent part of your smile, allowing you to return to normal life.
Using modern imaging and treatment planning, Dr. Datta can help restore your smile to its full functionality and appearance. Implant-secured dentures improve the health and integrity of the jawbone, whereas removable dentures may cause the jawbone to recede.
How Do Implant-Secured Dentures Work?
Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. With All-On-Four implant-secured dentures, your dentist uses four tiny dental implants strategically placed on each arch. If you only need one arch of teeth restored, you will have four implants, but if you have two arches for a complete restoration, you will have eight implants — four on top, and four on the bottom.
Four implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone under local anesthesia, then temporary restorations are attached while the implants heal. Temporary restorations ensure you are never without teeth during treatment. Once the implants have integrated into the jaw bone, your permanent restoration will be attached.
All-On-Four dentures allow patients to return to a normal life after just one visit. Implants can be placed and temporary restorations can be installed in one office visit, then you return after the implants heal to receive your permanent restoration.
