All-On-4 Implants Woodland Hills, CA
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, our dentists may recommend All-On-4 dental implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures and are designed to be a permanent and natural looking solution for your tooth loss.
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
All-On-4 dental implant supported dentures are very similar to traditional dentures, however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Denture wearers often complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective, permanent solution and only require 4-6 implants per arch to give you a beautiful and natural-looking smile that functions just like normal teeth.
What Is the All-On-4 Process?
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to tiny screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require 4-6 dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached. This provides your denture with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function more like their natural teeth.
