All-On-Four Dental Implants

If you have lost all of your upper teeth, or are about to lose them, then you may be a candidate for the replacement of your teeth using dental implants. The All-On-Four technique allows us to maximize the use of the existing bone, without requiring bone grafting procedures. Typically four implants are placed in the jawbone, which are then used to support the final restoration. Once the implants have been placed and healing has occurred, small posts are attached to the implants. The final restoration is fabricated and then secured to the posts with screws. This type of prosthesis is fixed in place and can only be removed by your dentist. The teeth function like real teeth, proved comfort, and provide and aesthetic replacement.
