Patients who have been missing teeth for many years, especially those with partial or complete tooth loss, frequently suffer from bone loss. This hinders the ability to receive dental implants because a sufficient amount of bone is needed. Oftentimes, bone grafting can be done to restore lost bone but with the All-on-4® dental implant solution this is not the case! The All-on-4 technique strategically places implants in areas where the bone is strongest, so bone grafting is often not necessary! All-on-4 dental implants have proven to be an ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume, and is a procedure that can restore a full arch of teeth in just one visit. Dr. Danielle Wehle is skilled in this procedure in Santa Clara, CA.
All-on-4 dental implants use just four dental implants to support a fixed bridge. This option provides stability and comfort that is often lacking in traditional tooth replacement methods like dentures. Before the procedure we’ll extract any necessary teeth. During the procedure you’ll have the option of receiving sedation to relax you while four dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw where there is sufficient bone. After they’re placed a temporary bridge is attached on top so you can leave the same day of surgery with a full set of functioning teeth! Eating and talking will be easier, and you will have a completely restored smile. Once the implants have healed and settled into their final place, a permanent bridge will be attached and you can enjoy your new implants for life.
All-on-4 dental implants provide a level of comfort and stability that is hard to achieve with traditional dentures. Dentures tend to slip and rub uncomfortably against the gums. Eating and talking with dentures can be difficult. All-on-4 dental implants greatly improve the comfort and stability of your new teeth. Dr. Danielle Wehle offers denture implants in Santa Clara, CA.
