All-on-4 Dental Implants
Hi, thank you for your question. I think I'm understanding that you're wearing a partial denture that is connected to two natural teeth. These types of prosthesis have been shown to be detrimental to oral health. These prosthesis, because they lie on top of the gum and bone, will damage the gum and bone over time. Before implants, these were substitutes in order for patients to have some chewing function. Today we examine patients to try and create a more stable and retentive prosthesis with dental implants. It can be done in a very cost effective way. I would recommend that you seek the advise of a periodontist regarding the addition of implants to support and retain a set of teeth. Good luck!
All-on-4 Dental Implants
Based on what you have described, I think you would be an ideal candidate. Of course we would have to evaluate your bone structure with a 3D CT scan and you could be looking at going to fixed replacement teeth in as little as one surgical appointment. Because bone atrophy can occur with long time denture wear, the All-on-4 procedure is ideal. Most of the complications take place with bone loss in the posterior area of the jaw. The All-on-4 protocol uses intentionally inclined implants to bypass the areas of little bone giving us great distribution of implant spacing to set up a full arch of teeth.

As with all information, consult a dental specialist prior to proceeding with any treatment.

Considering the fact that the frontal part of the jaw has the more dense bone, instead of the conventional method of placing the Implant straight into the bone (which can require sinus lift and bone grafting) and minimum 6 to 9 months waiting time and healing time, this technique differentiates by placing the back Implants at an angle. Not only do you benefit from the dense bone in the frontal part of the jaw, but we can place a longer Implant, with a much less invasive procedure, without entering into the sinus cavity on the upper arch.
