All-on-4 Dental Implants in Selden, NY
With All-on-4, you can have a whole new smile in less time!
For patients who have lost all of their teeth, the usual treatment option is full dentures. Traditional dentures aren't necessarily the most comfortable or functional form of tooth replacement. Unstable, uncomfortable, and inconvenient, dentures can make it difficult to enjoy life to the fullest. You may be interested in dental implants, but you might not think you're a candidate. However, with All-on-4, there may be hope for your smile.
All-on-4 gives you complete tooth replacement with a full bridge held in place by four strategically placed dental implants. Because only four implants are placed, treatment time is greatly reduced, and All-on-4 can be performed without bone grafting beforehand. If you've experienced a loss of jawbone that might otherwise prevent you from being able to have traditional dental implants placed without bone grafting surgery, All-on-4 is an alternative solution that might work for you.
One of the greatest benefits of All-on-4 is that you can leave your placement procedure with teeth in place. Whereas traditional implants require healing before teeth can be placed, Dr. Scotto-Lavino can usually place a temporary bridge immediately following your All-on-4 placement procedure. This allows you to resume normal activity -- speaking, eating, and living with confidence -- right after surgery. Once the implants are healed completely, Dr. Scotto-Lavino can replace your temporary bridge with a permanent one.
What are the benefits of All-on-4?
- Affordability: Because they don't require bone grafting or the placement of many dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants are a very affordable option for your tooth replacement.
- Time: Treatment and healing times are reduced, and you can have a temporary bridge placed the same day as your surgical procedure.
- Flexibility: You can wear either fixed tooth replacement or removable dentures with All-on-4 dental implants, allowing you to pick the one that works best for your situation and lifestyle.
- Reliability: All-on-4 have been researched and shown to be a reliable method for tooth replacement.
Another benefit is that those who are not candidates for traditional dental implants can often experience the freedom of this revolutionary method of tooth replacement with All-on-4.
