You can finally have the smile you’ve always wanted in just one visit to our Plano, TX dentist office. Dr. Mark Sowell of Sensational Smiles can replace an entire arch of teeth in just one day using this revolutionary new treatment. Using just four strategically placed tiny titanium implants, Dr. Sowell can secure your new dental restoration with implant-secured dentures, also known as fixed hybrid dentures.
What Are Implant-Secured Dentures?
Commercially known as All-On-FourⓇ implants, implant-secured dentures are a relatively new treatment that restores the appearance and full functionality of a full arch of teeth without the problems normally encountered by denture users. Using modern 3D computer imaging and treatment planning, Dr. Sowell can design your prosthetic arch of teeth which will then be permanently mounted in your mouth on only 4 implants giving you a youthful, healthy smile.
In addition to restoring the natural appearance of your smile, All-On-Four dentures improve the health and integrity of the jawbone due to the implants promoting the growth of healthy new bone tissue. Best of all, implant-secured dentures eliminate the need for messy denture adhesives and the worry of embarrassing denture slippages, allowing recipients to eat, drink, speak, and smile confidently 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 a long time. Dr. Sowell will carefully examine your jaw to determine the healthiest remaining points in which to embed the implants, preventing the need for expensive and time-consuming bone graft surgeries that might be necessary if you sought to replace the teeth individually.
Dental implants preserve the integrity of the underlying jawbone tissue while also promoting the growth of new, healthy bone. And, instead of replacing only one or two teeth at a time, All On Four can restore a full arch in one appointment.
Patients who receive implant-secured dentures can feel confident and secure in a well-fitted dental restoration that will not slip and requires no special maintenance. Since they are made of titanium, implants are impervious to decay and can last a lifetime as long as patients maintain good gum health with daily oral hygiene.
After the four implants are placed, temporary restorations are attached while the implant site is given time to heal properly. These temporary dentures will allow you to eat and talk normally while you await your final restorations.
