You can change your life in just one visit to our Plano, TX dentist office. Dr. Mark Sowell of Sensational Smiles offers a revolutionary denture procedure that can replace an entire arch of teeth in just one day. Using just four tiny titanium implants strategically embedded in the gums, Dr. Sowell can secure your new dental restoration in just one visit to our office.
What Are Implant-Secured Dentures?
Commercially known as All-On-FourⓇ implants, implant-secured dentures are a cutting edge treatment that restores full functionality without the problems encountered with traditional dentures. Using modern 3D computer imaging and treatment planning, Dr. Sowell can create and anchor an entire prosthetic arch of teeth on only 4 implants, restoring the full functionality and appearance of your smile.
In addition to restoring the natural appearance of your smile, implant-secured dentures improve the health and integrity of the jawbone due to the implants promoting the growth of healthy new bone tissue. Best of all, All-On-Four removes the need for messy denture adhesives and the worry of dentures slipping out, allowing recipients to eat, drink, speak, and smile normally — for a lifetime.
How Do Implant-Secured Dentures Work?
Four tiny dental implants can be used to mount a full arch of permanent dentures. All On Four are great for patients that may have lost integrity in their jawbone tissue due to missing teeth for awhile. Dr. Sowell can determine the healthiest remaining points along your jawbone in which to embed the implants, preventing the need for expensive and time-consuming bone graft surgeries that might be necessary to replace the teeth individually.
Dental implants preserve the integrity of the underlying jawbone and promote the growth of new, healthy bone tissue. And, instead of replacing only one or two teeth at a time, All On Four can restore a full arch at one time.
Patients who receive implant-secured dentures can feel confident and secure in a well-fitting dental restoration that will not slip and needs no special maintenance. Since they are made of titanium, implants are impervious to decay and can last a lifetime as long as patients maintain healthy gums with good oral hygiene.
After the four implants are placed, temporary restorations are attached to allow the implant site time to heal. Temporary restorations will allow you to eat and talk normally while you await your final restorations.
