Your teeth are meant to serve you for a lifetime. Unfortunately, this is not a reality for 35 million Americans who do not have any remaining natural teeth. Traditionally, they are replaced with a denture. New innovations allow them to look and feel more realistic than ever, but they will never feel natural. As an alternative, 500,000 people a year are turning to dental implants. All-On-4 in Greenfield allows you to anchor your denture to your jawbone, so you will never need to worry about any slipping or irritation again.
A traditional denture is made from an acrylic material that is custom fit based on an impression of your mouth. It is held in place using suction or an adhesive. This has been the go-to solution to replace an entire arch of missing teeth for decades because it is convenient and effective, but now you have another option to rebuild your smile.
All-On-4 differs from traditional dentures because it does not rely on suction or an adhesive to hold it in place. Instead, 4 strategically placed dental implants anchor the arch to your jawbone. This not only secures your dentures, but it also replaces the roots of your teeth, so you can enjoy a variety of advantages that are not possible with conventional treatments.
Dental implants have the potential to last for a lifetime with the right foundation and aftercare. Generally, you are a candidate for them if you have good oral and general health. You need an initial consultation to ensure they are right for you.

Traditional dental implants require you to undergo a multi-phased treatment that often includes additional procedures, like bone grafting. All-On-4 allows you to complete your smile in just one day. The implant posts are strategically placed into the thickest parts of your jaw. This can eliminate the need for bone grafting. Often, you can also be fitted with a temporary denture the same day as your placement surgery, so you do not need to go without any teeth while you heal.
