All-On-4® Dental Implants
Missing multiple teeth can be embarrassing, and it can lead to a deterioration of the bone in your jaw. With All-on-4® dental implants, you can smile confidently, bite and chew with power and help retain your jawbone strength and structure.
How Long Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Last?
All-on-4 dental implants are considered a permanent replacement for your missing teeth, and they should last for many years with proper care. Because the All-on-4 denture is securely attached to implants embedded in your jaw, you won’t need to take them out at night. You’ll simply brush them as you would your natural teeth and continue a regular regimen of dental check-ups.
Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Expensive?
All-on-4 dental implants compare favorably to other dental implant treatments, so many patients find All-on-4 dentures to be an affordable option. The type of material you choose for your dentures can also affect your total cost.
When you visit our practice, you’ll find that we provide a number of different implant types so that you can find the implant that works best for you and your budget.
What Goes Into Determining Dental Implant Costs?
The type of abutment you choose, the material used to make your crown, and other considerations determine your dental implant cost. Often, insurance plans cover a portion of the implant cost, and dental discount plans can provide additional savings.
What Happens During a Single Implant Procedure?
Your dentist will evaluate your gum health and jawbone depth, and provide any necessary preparatory care such as a jawbone graft. Once your jaw is strong and deep enough for an implant, a metal post is implanted into your jaw. In a few months, your jaw and implant have bonded together, and a crown will be connected to your implant with a connecting abutment.

What Are the Costs of Implant Bridges?

How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?

How Expensive Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Denture implants cost a bit more than regular dentures, but many patients find that the security, comfort, convenience and health benefits of implant-retained overdentures are well worth the investment. Insurance may cover part of your cost, so check your policy for details.
