On top of the four implants is a slim, hybrid device that blends the efficiency of a denture with the attractiveness of a dental bridge. The contoured shape follows the natural curve of your jaw and is permanently attached to the dental implants underneath. Dr. Patel can design your new smile to look the way you want it to.
Do I Qualify for All-on-4 Treatment?
The ideal candidate for All-on-4 implants is someone who is missing all of their teeth or is about to have their non-restorable teeth removed. Dr. Patel will also want to review your medical history (including any medications that you're taking) to ensure you're healthy enough for implant treatment.
During your exam at our Summerfield office, we will take a series of scans or X-rays to evaluate your bone structure. At that point, we can determine whether or not All-on-4 implants are right for you. If you still have healthy teeth, an implant-supported bridge may be more appropriate. But if you need additional implant support, All-on-6 implants are another viable alternative.
Can I Get All-on-4 if I Wear Dentures?
In most cases, yes. Dr. Patel will need to assess your bone density and ensure that your mouth is healthy enough for implant treatment. If you qualify, we can surgically place the implants and allow them to integrate while you wear your denture. Once the implants are fully integrated with your bone, we will replace your denture with your permanent, hybrid appliance.
If you've been told that dental implants aren't an option, we encourage you to visit our Summerfield implant dentist for a second opinion.
