All-on-4 Dental Implants

North Shore Dental Implants Specialists

Traditionally the only solution for losing the majority of your adult teeth was to get your teeth replaced with removable dentures. Removable dentures have many key drawbacks including the fact that they can make it difficult to chew foods and speak. But there are alternatives. All-On-4 dental implants provide all of the benefits of dental implants while replacing an entire arch of teeth. Not only do permanent dentures look more like a natural smile, they function closer to a natural smile as well. Here at Whiting Dental Arts we provide dental implants and full arch dental implants to patients who are looking into replacing their full smile. If you have any questions about this service, please give us a call or fill out the form below to set up a consultation with our team in Swampscott.

The team at Whiting Dental Arts combines experience with modern dental technology to provide the best dental services to our patients. Whether we are seeing patients for their regular dental exams and cleanings or beginning a custom treatment plan that combines cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, we are happy to work with patients to help them get the dental services they need. 

All-On-4 Dental implants are often recommended around the time patients begin to lose their adult teeth. Younger adults might simply replace a single tooth at a time if the reason the tooth was lost was due to a singular injury. But if tooth loss is linked to age, gum disease, or dental decay, it might be time to consider solutions that replace the full arch instead of just a single tooth. For more information about restorative dentistry at our office in Swampscott please give our office a call.

All-On-4 Permanent Dentures vs Traditional Dentures

When we think about dentures we might think about removable dentures you might see sitting on the nightstand next to your grandparent’s bed when you were a kid. For generations these types of dentures have been a common solution for lost adult teeth. But they come with some serious drawbacks. These implants are removable which means they can slip around and make it difficult to speak or chew on food. Additionally, All-On-4 Dental Implants has some key benefits. 

Keep Your Face Structure

The structure and shape of our faces is impacted by the loss of teeth. Dental implants maintain the natural structure of our face by not just replacing the crowns of the teeth we lost but also replacing some of the roots with the implant posts. This helps maintain our natural facial structure. 

Form & Function

All-On-4 dental implants are the closet replacement for natural teeth. Because they replace both the crowns and the roots of the teeth they feel and function just like normal teeth. And because they are permanent you do not have to worry about them slipping or falling out during the day. 

How Do You Get Implant-Supported Dentures

The process of getting implant-supported dentures is fairly similar to the process of getting a singular dental implant. First a simple consultation is done to take measurements. One of the key benefits of All-On-4 implants is they replace a full arch of teeth but with only four dental implants. This means the implants can be strategically placed to where the jawbone can best support them. So even if you have been told in the past that a single tooth couldn’t be replaced with a dental implant because of bone density, that might not be the case for All-On-4 Dental implants. After measurements are taken, remaining teeth will be extracted, and dental implants will be installed. After a brief recovery period the false teeth can be connected to the implant posts.
