All-on-Four Dental Implants
If you’re looking for a way to replace a full arch of missing natural teeth but are not interested in standard dentures, you may want to consider treatment using All-on-Four dental implants. This treatment technique is an excellent choice if you want the stability and support of dental implants without the cost of a full set or without needing to replace every missing tooth individually.
Here at Centre Family Dentistry, we offer All-on-Four (also known as "All-on-4”) implants in Fort Collins, CO. We invite you to give us a call at (970) 407-1001 to schedule a dental appointment when you’re ready to have an All-on-Four evaluation.
A Smart Choice for Patients Who Need New Teeth
The point of All-on-4 dental implants is to replace an entire arch, or row, of missing teeth. It combines dental implants underneath the surface of your gums with a visible set of artificial teeth made from porcelain or other durable materials to give you the look and feel of real teeth. These restorations permanently attach to the implant posts.
You are a good candidate for this treatment plan if you:
- Are edentulous (missing all of your teeth)
- Have severe tooth decay throughout your mouth
- Suffer from gum disease that has compromised your oral health
- Are facing significant tooth extraction that will leave you without a row of natural teeth
Because you should always replace missing teeth as quickly as possible after losing them, All-on-Four implants are a smart choice because they can provide you with artificial teeth almost instantly. In most cases, we will place the dental implants and immediately attach the denture or fixed bridge using abutments. There’s no need to wait months before getting your tooth replacements!
Support For Your Jaw and Your Bite
All-on-Four dental implants are so named because all of your artificial teeth in an arch get their support from only four implants.
How does it work? Our Fort Collins dentist places four implants at precise locations in your mouth. Dr. Humbert will place the back implants at an angle specifically designed to accommodate a bridge or denture, while the front two implants will be at a more traditional, vertical angle.
These four implants are enough to keep your jaw bone healthy and prevent the degeneration that often occurs in patients who lose their natural teeth. The titanium implant posts take the place of your natural tooth roots and stimulate your jaw bone.
