All-on-4® Dental Implants Riverhead, Roslyn and Nesconset, NY

The use of dental implants has revolutionized tooth replacement, including the placement of dentures with permanent and stable results. The dental team of Bella Smiles has the advanced training and experience needed to offer full service dental implants. This includes the All-on-4® procedure for securing a top or bottom denture.

All-on-4® uses as few as four dental implants. Our dentists strategically place them in the jaw for maximum health benefits when securing a denture. Using smaller implants, this procedure is often available to patients who have less bone structure in the jaw. Patients that did not qualify for traditional implants may do so with this implant method.

Furthermore, we can help you if you are currently wearing traditional dentures and are unhappy with them. Our team can place your implant denture without the need for a bone graft. This will reduce the recovery time and cost. However, you must be free of gum disease and other oral health issues before we can place All-on-4 implant dentures.

The Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants

You can look forward to many benefits when choosing the All-on-4 implant method to replace your missing row of teeth. Some of the great advantages include:

  • Can replace a full mouth of missing teeth
  • Lower overall cost compared to traditional implant procedures
  • Able to wear a temporary denture while recovering from the implant placement procedure
  • Available to patients with tooth loss who have less available bone
  • The dentist can place an implant denture with only four implant posts
  • The implants replace the teeth at the root to reduce bone loss

Maintenance is easy with All-on-Four implants. You don’t have to adjust your brushing and flossing routine. Practice good oral hygiene, and they will last a lifetime.

All-on-4®: About the Procedure

With precise treatment planning, Dr. Sal Lotardo can complete your All-on-4® dental implant procedure in one day. He can do this even without a bone grafting procedure. Using technology and digital imaging, Dr. Lotardo will plan the placement of four dental implants. This will maximize the available bone you have.

We will place two of the implants at an angle to provide stability without changing your bone density. Most patients qualify for this procedure. However, it’s best for patients who wear dentures.

On the day of your implant surgery, Dr. Lotardo will place the dental implants into the jaw. Then he will immediately attach a temporary denture. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of a functional smile while the soft tissues heal and the implants fuse with the bone. The recovery period is about three to six months.

Dr. Lotardo will provide important oral health and dietary guidelines for the recovery period. This will ensure that you heal properly to get lasting results. The last step is to place the denture that will look like natural teeth. You will be able to enjoy a normal diet without fear of your teeth falling out or shifting when you talk.

Implant-supported Dentures Versus Removable Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a more permanent and stable option for replacing missing teeth. They anchor to dental implants that our dentist surgically places in your mouth. The a strong foundation this creates for the dentures makes them permanent.

This makes implant-supported dentures more stable and secure than removable dentures. You will be able to chew better, speak without constraints, and even whistle. The prosthetic will not slip around or make clicking noises that can sometimes occur with removable dentures.

Additionally, implant-supported dentures help preserve the underlying bone structure of your jaw. The implants stimulate the bone in the same way that your natural tooth roots do. This can prevent bone loss and maintain the shape of your jaw and face over time.

On the other hand, removable dentures are a more affordable and non-invasive option for replacing missing teeth. Natural suction or denture adhesive holds them in place, and you can be easily remove them for cleaning. Removable dentures are a good alternative for patients with health concerns who are not eligible for dental implants.

However, removable dentures may not provide the same level of strength and function as implant-supported dentures. They can sometimes be uncomfortable or cause sores or irritation. They may also need replacement or adjustments more frequently than implant-supported dentures.
