All on 4 Dental Implants Dallas Fort Worth

All-on-4 Dental Implants are a unique type of dental implant that support all teeth using only four implants, rather than one implant per tooth. All-on-4 is typically recommended for patients who are missing the majority of their teeth and are looking for a cost-effective and less invasive solution to return their full, healthy smile.

All-on-4 dental implants are a popular option because they offer a permanent solution to missing teeth that is less invasive than traditional dental bridges, implants, or dentures.

At ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center, we are committed to ensuring you maintain your bright and healthy smile. We are also proud to provide you with the latest dental technology to ensure that you achieve the long-lasting results that you deserve. If you are interested in learning more about the quality services we offer, or if you have any questions concerning whether or not All-on-4 Dental Implants are right for you, contact us today. We are committed to helping you achieve and maintain that bright, healthy smile that you deserve!

Candidates for All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 Dental Implants are a good option for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and would prefer to have a more permanent solution than dentures. Although you can never be too old for All-on-4 Dental Implants, you can be too young, as facial and dental bones are still forming through the early teen years.

There are a range of immediate and long-term benefits that you will enjoy following your All-on-4 Dental Implants, including the following:

  • Minimally invasive compared to individual implants
  • Cost effective
  • Faster results and quicker recovery time
  • Less discomfort and maintenance then dentures
  • Easier to speak compared to bulky dentures
  • Reduces likelihood of requiring a bone graft
  • Feels and functions like natural teeth
  • Maintains integrity of bone structure
  • Keeps adjacent teeth healthy
  • Evenly distributes bite forces
  • Prevents additional bone loss, which can create an aged appearance

All-on-4 Dental Implants Process

In order to determine if All-on-4 Dental Implants is right for you, you will need to schedule an initial consultation, during which we will examine the overall health of your teeth, review your medical history, take scans and x-rays, and determine what treatment options are best suited to your unique needs. Next, your periodontist will examine your jawbone to ensure there is an adequate amount of bone to hold an implant in place.

If All-on-4 Dental Implants are determined to be the optimal treatment option for you, your periodontist will use the implant placement plan designed specifically for your unique needs to place the arch so that it maximizes support for the denture. The number of implants used for each arch is typically four to six, depending upon your particular case and what your periodontist feels is best practice.

Prior to placing the arches, you will be given a local anesthetic. The type of anesthesia that is used may vary, depending upon the severity of your case as well as your overall sensitivity. Once you are properly numbed, any unhealthy or loose teeth will be removed, if necessary. Next, the arches are placed along with the temporary teeth, which will act as a transitional prosthetic during the healing period. After allowing approximately 3-6 months to heal, you will return to the office and the permanent teeth will be placed. Once this step is complete, you can begin enjoying your bright new healthy smile!

Aftercare for All-on-4 Dental Implants

Following your All-on-4 procedure, recovery time is minimal, although you will need to allow approximately 3-6 months for the gums and jaw to bond to the implants. It will be necessary to follow special aftercare instructions; however, to maximize the benefits and longevity of your All-on-4 Dental Implants, it is critical to practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing at least once daily, ideally every time you brush your teeth. It is also important to practice proper brushing and flossing techniques. In addition to practicing consistent and proper oral selfcare, it is also important to schedule regular checkups every six months. By maintaining a consistent oral health care routine, you will significantly reduce your risk for developing additional periodontal issues and will continue enjoying a bright and healthy smile.

All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost

One of the primary benefits of having All-on-4 dental implants is that doing so is typically more cost effective than having many individual implants. There are a range of factors that can impact the final cost of having All-on-4, such as the severity of your case, any associated procedures that will need to be performed prior to or along with treatment, as well as your insurance plan. If applicable, it may be more cost effective to have the lower and upper arches performed at the same time, as doing so will reduce the cost of paying the anesthesiologist.

Our team is committed to helping you complete necessary paperwork, schedule appointments, and answer any questions you have concerning billing. For patients who have insurance plans, we do request you submit medical/dental insurance information with your New Patient Paperwork to expedite this process.

Please note: to reduce costs to our patients while still ensuring that we can provide the highest level of care, we have the following financial polices:

  • We accept Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express
  • Full payment is due after services rendered
  • Payment plan options are available via www.CareCredit.com

PERIODONTAL SERVICES

To determine if you have gum disease, your periodontist will measure the space between your teeth and gums. Patients who have pockets that are deeper than the average depth of three millimeters or less will be considered candidates for treating gum disease. Depending upon how severe your case is, your periodontist will suggest a follow up appointment, during which several different treatment options may be recommended.

Pinhole Surgical Treatment

Patients who are suffering from periodontal disease may experience gum recession. If this issue is not treated at an early stage, more complicated and serious problems can develop, as gum recession creates greater exposure of your natural teeth, which creates opportunities for bacteria to build. To address this issue, patients have historically had gum grafting, which involves removing tissue from unaffected areas and then grafting this tissue to the areas that have been affected. This is an effective method for addressing the issue of receding gums, however there is a newer and increasingly popular approach to treating receding gums, which is the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST).

Laser Gum Surgery

Laser gum surgery is an advanced treatment option that efficiently and painlessly treats gum disease through the use of a laser. One of the unique aspects of laser gum surgery is that the laser pinpoints and kills bacteria without damaging surrounding gum tissue. Unlike other treatment options, which involve cutting and suturing, patients who have laser gum surgery and treatment performed will have a much quicker healing process.

Gum Grafting

Patients who have gum recession may consider having a gum graft, a common oral surgical procedure that thickens existing gums and/or covers a tooth root surface in order to prevent further recession from occurring. Gum recession can occur for a variety of reasons, but the most common reason is due to periodontal disease. A gum graft will not only improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, but will also reduce your risk of developing additional issues.

Gingival Contouring

Patients who have an imbalanced ratio between their visible gums and teeth have what is commonly referred to as a gummy smile. Gummy smiles can be caused by a range of factors, including bone deterioration, periodontal disease, or genetic predisposition. Regardless of the reason, patients often feel self-conscious about their appearance and will seek to improve this issue by having a gum contouring procedure performed.

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing (also known as deep teeth cleaning and deep gum cleaning) is a common method used to address periodontal disease. Scaling refers to the process of removing tartar that has accumulated, either on your teeth or below your gumline. Planing refers to the removal of tartar below the root line. When bacteria is allowed to settle on your teeth for too long, it will eventually mineralize and turn into tartar. The primary difference between plaque and tartar is that plaque can be removed by conventional brushing methods, whereas tartar will need to be removed through the efforts of your periodontist. It is important to schedule regular deep teeth cleaning and deep gum cleaning appointments to prevent periodontal disease from developing.
