Nobel Biocare's All-on-4 dental implants offer a revolutionary approach to secure dentures for a total restoration. This treatment works by placing the screws (implants) into four areas on each arch. In contrast to other implant dentures, All-on-4 uses fewer implants to give you a secure fit. Our experienced dental team recommends All-on-4 implants for patients are looking for a fully restored smile without the hassle and dietary restrictions that come with removable dentures. Many Springfield, MA patients have reaped the benefits of the groundbreaking All-on-4 treatment, enjoying high-quality results. If you're interested in finding out more about All-on-4 implants and custom dentures, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at People's Dental.
Dental implants by All-on-4 can be used to replace the lower and/or upper arches with implanted screws attached to dentures made custom for you. You could be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 implant dentures if you prefer the benefits of implanted dentures over removable dentures, which include few or no dietary restrictions, no messy adhesives, and no special cleaning. You will need to have good bone and gum density to be a candidate, as the screws rely on your bone and gums to keep them in place. If necessary, bone and/or gum grafts may be needed prior to implant placement. We can determine whether this treatment is good for you during your initial consultation and can help discuss all your options.
What to Expect
First, we will take scans and x-rays of your teeth. Next, we will create your unique treatment plan and go over your options for sedation during the process. At your first appointment, the implants will be set in your dental arch. Our team will place a temporary denture over the implants while your mouth heals and your custom dentures are being crafted. After several months, you will return to have your custom dentures attached and possibly adjusted for a more comfortable fit.
You may experience some discomfort and pain in your gums after implant surgery. When you are wearing temporary dentures, there will be some diet restrictions and cleaning instructions to follow. You will also schedule regular follow-ups during the healing period so we can assess your progress and ensure that the implants are integrating into your bone socket and gums as they should be. Once your custom dentures are set, you can clean them like natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. You should continue to visit People's Dental for annual exams and bi-annual cleanings to maintain your dentures, and so our team can monitor the health of your implants, gums, and jaw.
Several insurance plans may offer limited coverage for implant dentures. It is likely that there will be some out-of-pocket costs, but our team will work with your insurance provider to maximize your coverage. If you don't have insurance, People's Dental accepts many payment methods, including medical financing. Our team can help make your All-on-4 treatment affordable.
