Strong, Secure Dentures in Coppell, TX
The All-on-4 dental implants manufactured by Nobel Biocare offer an advanced method to secure dentures for a full restoration. This procedure works by implanting the screws (implants) into four areas on each arch. In comparison to other implant dentures, All-on-4 uses fewer implants to obtain a secure fit. Many of Dr. Peterson’s patients have reaped the benefits of the groundbreaking All-on-4 process, enjoying high-quality results. If you are interested in finding out more about All-on-4 implants and custom dentures, we welcome you to schedule an appointment at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
Dr. James Peterson recommends All-on-4 implants for patients who are looking for a fully restored smile without the hassle and dietary restrictions that come with removable dentures. All-on-4 can be used to replace the upper and/or lower arches with implants attached to custom-made dentures. You might be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 if you prefer the benefits of implant-retained dentures over removable dentures, which include:
You will need to have good bone and gum density to be a candidate for All-on-4, as the screws rely on your bone and gums to keep them in place. If needed, bone and/or gum grafts will be performed before implant surgery. Dr. Peterson can determine whether this procedure is best for you during your initial consultation and can discuss all your options.
What To Expect
To start your All-on-4 treatment, we will take scans and X-rays of your teeth. Dr. Peterson will create your unique treatment plan and talk with you about what you can expect during the process. In your first appointment, the implants will be placed in your mouth. Dr. Peterson will place a temporary denture over the implants while your mouth heals and your custom dentures are being created. Once they are ready, you will return to have your custom dentures attached and then adjusted for a good fit.
Recovery & After Care
You will need to schedule follow-up appointments after your implant placement so Dr. Peterson can monitor your progress and ensure the implants are integrating into your jawbone and gums as they should be. Once your custom dentures are in place, you can clean them like natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. You should continue to visit James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for annual exams and cleanings at least every six months to properly maintain your dentures and so Dr. Peterson can continue to monitor your oral health.
