What do All-on-4 dentures mean?
All-on-4 implants are four precisely placed implants on your mouth's upper and lower jaw. Their primary purpose is to support fixed dentures and eliminate the need to get an implant for every one of your missing teeth.
Implants are made of titanium and easily fuse with the jawbone. They are very durable and feel just like natural teeth. Implants give you the same appearance, bite, and comfort as natural teeth or permanent dentures.
All-on-4s are permanent and should be treated like natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing maintenance.
Am I a good candidate for dentures?
If you're in need of full dentures because you've lost your teeth due to illness, decay, or injury, you could be a perfect candidate for immediate dentures.
Dentures are readily available, which means you don't have to suffer the inconvenience of not having teeth. Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.
For patients who are unable to wear dentures, Dr. Samet uses dental implants to support cemented bridges. She has extensive experience with providing dental implants and assesses your dental health before helping you decide on a plan of action.
Where do I go for denture repairs?
Dana Samet, DDS can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs take place on-site.
