Patients with dentures, or several missing teeth can benefit from all on 4 dental implants in Long Island. Modern designs and technology has provided our team with everything needed to bring the best dental science to our patients.
What are the options and differences for all on 4 dental implants?
Dental implants can range in price due to bone density and other treatments required to prepare the area for permanent dental implants. The standard all on 4 process will include four dental implants surgically implanted into the jaw bone, and an acrylic denture will then be placed on the gums using a titanium frame to hold it in place. It is difficult to offer pricing over the phone as the costs change based on your current oral health situation. Some people find that they need bone grafting prior to implants as the jawbone is simply not strong enough to withstand the amount of pressure placed on the jaw when there is chewing action and the breakdown of foods.
Different Metal Options for All on 4
If you have several missing teeth and you would like a permanent solution to your missing teeth issues, we highly recommend using all on 4 dental implants in Long Island. We specialize in the use of multiple materials to ensure the implant will be strong. While titanium is the preferred choice, it is not the only option. We do have some patients that are allergic to titanium, or others that simply find the titanium will not bond with their jawbone. Zirconia and CrCo are other materials we can use as a base prior to attaching the porcelain crowns to the base. Again, until we know whether your oral health history will be able to work with the desired metal, it is difficult to give a ballpark figure on costs. We need to see you first and take x-rays to determine bone density and improve the successful outcome of the procedure.
Why All on 4 Dental Implants?
Dental implants require technical work to properly insert the posts into the jawbone. We need to then watch the area to ensure it is bonding and healing correctly. Our staff performs thousands of dental implants, with several patients receiving successful outcomes for the all on 4 dental implant. We use a technique known as angling to prevent patients from needing a sinus graft. We can place a bridge 24 hours after surgery, allowing our patients to have a complete set of teeth once again. Patients with dental implants will see improvements in their self-esteem along with the dental benefits of improved chewing, speaking, and eating. Patients no longer need to constantly adjust the teeth for comfort and aesthetic purposes.
Caring for Dental Implants
Dental implants function just like your regular teeth. You will need to brush and floss them normally, along with rinsing them daily to ensure you are removing bacteria and preventing it from infecting the gum tissue. Caring for your gums is essential to long-term success of dental implants as the gum tissue is responsible for helping to hold the all on 4 implant in the proper position. You will want to come in for annual visits to the dental office in Long Island to ensure your overall bone health is strong and the implant is functioning correctly.
