We believe everyone has a right to a full smile that restores their confidence and their health. Our efficient All-on-4 dental implants in Plano, TX have successfully improved the lives of hundreds of our patients, and they could do the same for you!
What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
If you’ve read our section on dental implants, you may recall that implants are titanium posts that are carefully inserted under your gums, providing a secure foundation for a dental restoration – crowns, bridges, or dentures – on top. In order for us to place implants, we examine the structure of your bone because it must be dense and deep enough to support the titanium implants.
If your bone isn’t dense enough for traditional implants, that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the incredible advantages of permanent teeth! Based on our consultation with you, you might be a great candidate for All on 4 implants instead.
What is the Procedure?
The All-on-4 implant method takes a lot of careful planning and experience. Our Plano, TX dentist in 1st In Smiles has the knowledge, technology, and expertise to make sure your implants serve you well in the long term.
With All on 4 implants, we strategically place 4 implants in your bone to provide the most support for your restoration. One of the keys to the success of All on 4 implants is placing the back 2 implants at an angle, increasing their contact with the quality bone in the back. Fewer implants mean less time in the office, usually no expensive and invasive bone grafting, and lower costs.
Don’t let your embarrassment about the gaps in your smile stop you from letting us fix your smile with All on 4 implants. We’re a lecture-free office that treats you kindly, just like you’re part of our family! Our only goal is to give you a beautiful, healthy smile that you can be proud of. And if you’ve been avoiding the dentist out of fear, we can provide sedation options that will erase your fears and relax you through your entire implant procedure.
