All-On-4® Dental Implants
What Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Do?
If you are missing most of your upper or lower teeth, our dentists in Downtown Austin may recommend All-on-4® dental implants as a way to restore your biting and chewing power and restore your confident smile. During the procedure, four posts are implanted into your jaw, two at the front and two at the back. Dentures are permanently snapped onto the secured implants, so you can eat, speak, and smile naturally. You can even brush and clean your new teeth just as you normally would.
Will Insurance Cover All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Many insurance providers cover part of the implant procedure, but most do not cover the full treatment costs. All-on-4 dental implants cost less than other implant treatments, so it’s an economical way to regain a confident, functional smile. We’ll provide you with a pre-treatment cost estimate during your consultation, so call us for an appointment today.
We are always happy to work with you to find the implant that meets your needs as well as your budget. Contact us for an appointment to find out if implants can help you.
Are Dental Implants Expensive?
If you’re asking yourself, “How much is a dental bridge implant?” you should know that these appliances are very cost effective and durable. Your overall cost estimate will include preparation for the implant, the abutment, the crown and other related materials. Insurance and dental discount plans can also help defray total expenses.
What Are Single Implants?
Single tooth dental implants are an effective, durable replacement for a lost tooth. During the procedure, a small metal implant is placed in your jaw and allowed to fuse to your jawbone. In a few months, a natural-looking crown is attached to the implant to restore your smile.
When Are Implant Bridges Recommended?
Dental implant-supported bridges are ideal for patients who have several severely damaged teeth or who have multiple missing teeth. Not only are implant bridges durable, secure replacements for missing teeth, but they are natural looking and comfortable.
Does Insurance Cover Implant-Supported Bridges?
An increasing number of insurance providers partially cover implants and dental implant bridge costs. Generally, your cost depends on your pre-treatments needs and your bridge type. Check your policy for specific coverage information, or call our dentists in Downtown Austin for a consultation and estimate.
Smile freely and enjoy eating again with the restorative help of implant-supported dentures.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Painful?
Many of our patients report that implant-retained overdentures are very comfortable and easy to wear. Since these dentures are securely attached to implants embedded into your jaw, patients don’t experience the rubbing and slipping that is common with regular dentures. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits ensure that your implant-retained dentures remain comfortable and secure.
What Will I Pay for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Your implant overdenture cost depends on whether you need treatment to prepare your gums and jaw for implants, the type of denture material chosen, and whether you need follow-up care. Your insurance coverage also affects your final cost.
