All-On-4® Dental Implants
When Are All-on-4® Dental Implants Recommended?
This permanent, effective treatment is ideal for patients who have lost nearly all of their upper or lower teeth. All-on-4® dental implants are also an option for patients without the jaw density to support traditional dental implants and who need fast tooth replacement.
What’s the Procedure for Getting All-on-4 Implants?
In most cases, a full set of lower or upper teeth can be completed in one surgery in which our dentists in Round Rock implant four posts into each arch in the patient’s jaw. A set of customized dentures are permanently fastened to those secure implants, providing patients with natural-looking smiles and improved chewing power.
What Will I Pay for All-on-4 Dental Implants?
We understand that cost is important to you so we provide a cost estimate during your consultation. You should keep in mind that All-on-4 implants cost less than most traditional implants, so they may be an economical replacement for your teeth.
Are Dental Implants Costly?
Dental implants can be a cost-effective solution to restore your smile and your oral function. Your individual dental bridge cost depends on your specific needs, but your estimate will include items such as the abutment and crown. Sometimes, insurance covers part of the bill. Dental discount plans can also reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.
How Are Single Implants Secured?
A metal post, usually made of titanium, is inserted into your jaw to begin the single tooth implant procedure. An abutment is placed into the implant. After a few months, once your jaw and implant have integrated, a small cut is made in your gum to reveal the top of the abutment. Your natural-looking crown snaps onto the abutment to create a secure tooth.
If you’re missing more than one tooth and you want to smile confidently again, call our dentists in Round Rock to find out if an implant-supported bridge can restore your smile.
How Does an Implant-Supported Bridge Work?
With implant bridges, implants are placed in your jaw and a connected set of crowns is created to attach to those implants. The implants look and function just like your missing teeth.
Are Implant-Supported Bridges Expensive?
Many patients find that dental implant bridge costs are very affordable. Insurance can often cover part of the cost of the bridge, which will depend on factors such as the health of your teeth and gums and the type of implant you choose.
What’s the Benefit of Implant-Supported Dentures?
This type of denture offers a long-term solution for damaged or missing teeth. Since implant dentures are firmly attached to your implants, you won’t need to use adhesives or worry about dentures slipping or chafing. The security of implant overdentures also means that you can eat and speak more naturally than you would with conventional dentures.
Will Insurance Cover Implant-Supported Dentures?
Many insurance companies provide coverage for appliances like implant-supported dentures. The materials used to make your denture and your need for pre-treatment and follow-up care also affect your denture implant costs.
Your gums are an important part of your overall dental and physical health. If you’re concerned about your gum health, make an appointment with an experienced local periodontist.
How Is a Periodontist Different from a Dentist?
A periodontist is a dentist with three extra years of specialized training in gum health, gum disease, and treatments. If you’re searching for a “periodontist near me,” we’re just a phone call away. Periodontists can diagnose and treat gingivitis and other oral inflammation, place and maintain dental implants, and provide a wide variety of gum health treatment.
