Patients who are missing a full arch of teeth often assume that restoring their smile with dental implants will be too inconvenient or expensive. Thankfully, advancements in technology have made it so you don’t have to replace each tooth individually. Instead, Dr. Wirth can customize a set of full dentures just for you and anchor it to your jaw with only four implants.
The implants are strategically placed to maximize your available bone tissue, eliminating the need for a bone graft. This makes All-on-4 an ideal option for patients who previously wore removable dentures and have suffered from jawbone deterioration.
Best of all, Dr. Wirth can place all of your implants in one appointment and provide you with fully-functional temporary teeth. This means you won’t have to live with gaps in your smile while you wait for your permanent restoration.
All-on-4 offers several advantages that traditional dentures can’t match, including:
All-on-4 doesn’t require a strong jawbone the way that traditional implants do. This allows many patients who don’t qualify for implants to take advantage of All-on-4. By avoiding a bone graft, patients can also save time and money.
For patients who have lived with missing teeth for a long time or previously wore dentures, All-on-4 offers a solution that wasn’t previously available. Thanks to this innovative technique, more patients can enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile than ever before.
If you’re missing a full arch of teeth, or even both arches, All-on-4 could be the ideal solution for your smile. Call our office in Oak Harbor at 360-675-6404 and schedule a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Wirth today.
All-on-4 dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution that’s designed to last anywhere from 20 years to a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and care. This means brushing and flossing regularly, as well as scheduling your regular dental visits twice a year.
When you follow good oral hygiene habits, the lifetime of your All-on-4 dental implants will lengthen and allow you to live with a beautiful smile for years to come.
All-on-4 implants aren’t removable because they’re surgically placed into your jaw bone to restore the beauty, function, and health of your smile. Through a process called osseointegration, the titanium fixtures naturally integrate into your jaw, stimulating healthy bone growth and protecting your gums from bacteria or infection.
All-on-4 is meant to be a permanent solution for tooth loss, and should not be removed. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort after the procedure, we recommend that you schedule an appointment. We’ll evaluate the surgical area and get to the root of the problem.
