First things first, consider using the service of an “All-On-Four” dental implant in Austin, TX because these implants replace all teeth including your top and/or bottom row of your mouth. Since each denture is applied as a whole individual piece, only four implants need to be embedded into your mouth, with no need for grafting. Two posterior implants are angled at 45 degrees, and the two anterior implants are straight up and down. This procedure is far less invasive than previous methods – or tooth-by-tooth implants – and is considered state-of-the-art.
Let’s talk about what receiving an “All-On-Four” implant means. Implanting begins with the dentist in South Austin inserting four titanium screws into the sections of your gums that would otherwise hold the root of a tooth. We use titanium screws, since they naturally fuse with surrounding bone over time. This ensures a strong base for your removable implant, and it is minimally invasive. Next, your implant is fitted to match up with your mouth and the four embedded screws – and that’s it!
“All-On-Four” fixed bridges give you the perfect smile after one simple procedure. You’ll receive full-arch rehabilitation through just a few dental implants. The procedure is relatively pain-free, as we do provide sedation services, and the difference is immediately noticeable.
And as a final phase, we’ll bring you back to check-in and track the changes that occur on your gumline, and build a final specially designed permanent removable denture for you to wear. This denture will be designed specifically for your jawline and gum shape to ensure the perfect secure fit.
So, if you’re missing many teeth on either or both top/bottom gumlines, consider consulting a professional at Lifetime Smiles.
