All-On-4 dental implants will enable you to enjoy the best possible quality of life and confidence in your smile. No slipping, no discomfort and no maintenance.
Dental Implants vs Dentures
Many people report having issues with the way their traditional dentures fit. They are known to slip around in your mouth making talking difficult and even fall out while eating or talking. This can lead to many embarrassing situations. Dentures require a lot of maintenance and adhesives to stay in place. With the use of dental implants to secure your dentures, you are assured that your dentures will stay in place. Dental implants can also stabilize the jaw bone and helps to prevent jaw line recession. Even though traditional dentures are cheaper, they can not guarantee the same quality of life as dental implants.
About the All-on-Four Procedure
Norfolk, VA dentist, Dr. Sinclair spends significant time in the pre-treatment and planning phase to create a personalized treatment plan that will have predictable and successful results. After Dr. Sinclair creates a personalized treatment plan, he will then coordinate treatment with an oral surgeon or periodontist who will place the implant.
A skilled oral surgeon or periodontist will remove the necessary teeth that are damaged, decayed, or compromised in a comfortable operatory setting under dental sedation. Next, around 4 dental implants depending on the patient’s needs and specific circumstances are surgically placed. A temporary dental restoration will be secured to the dental implants to restore esthetics and function.
The dental implants will take about 3-6 to heal and then you will return to our Norfolk, VA dentist office. When the dental implants are fully integrated with the jaw bone, the temporary bridge will be removed and the final, permanent, custom designed partial or full denture will be secured.
