All on four, is a treatment that has been approved by the FDA and has shown to be successful at restoring patients with missing teeth using a minimum of four titanium dental implants securing a fixed prosthesis.
Phoenix Dentist, Sean Foroughi D.D.S., works with a top quality dental lab and certified surgeon in the valley to provide patients with all on four dental implant system. To learn more about this life changing treatment option you can book a free consult at Atrium Dental in Phoenix, Arizona.
The cost of all on four treatments can range from about 18,000 dollars to 24,000 dollars. This will cover all cost including the 3D x-rays, surgical procedure, the temporary prosthesis, the dental implants, laboratory cost, fabrication of hybrid fixed prosthesis, and any adjustments as needed for up to one year. Most offices can offer special types of financing. The cost will vary based on the number of implants needed and if any bone grafting is done. The fees will be discussed prior to the surgery.
How is the all on four different than traditional dentures?
- The prothesis is fixed and you have increased biting force.
- There is no need for adhesives.
- The prosthesis is more comfortable and it will not move.
- Prevents the bone from deteriorating over time and restores your facial feature.
How long is the surgery?
The surgery can take about 3-4 hours, followed by the delivery of your temporary prosthesis.
Who is a Candidate for all on four?
The ideal patient is someone who already is missing teeth and is uncomfortable with their existing dentures. Most patients are candidates for all on four. Few relative contraindications may include someone with uncontrolled diabetes or heavy smokers.
Composite fillings are a durable alternative to amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are made of a composite plastic material and, due to their natural tooth color, are typically used for front teeth and the area of teeth that are closest to the gum line. The composite plastic filling material is applied layer by layer and then cured using an ultraviolet light.request an appointment
Skillfully fabricated Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges can defy detection. With today’s emphasis on having an attractive, self-confident smile, crowns and bridges can be an effective part of cosmetic dental treatment. Because they are designed to look and feel like “real teeth”, porcelain crowns produce dramatic results.
These restorations require enough reduction of the existing tooth to create a complete coverage or “capping” of the tooth structure. The crown will add strength to a tooth weakened from excessive wear, decay, or oversized fillings. The crown may or may not have a layer of metal under the porcelain to add additional strength. The porcelain glass gives a very natural luster and “lifelike” appearance to the crown. Crowns can help the cosmetic appearance of teeth, as we can fabricate them in any shape, shade, or size to remedy an existing undesirable appearance due to gapped, rotated, chipped, worn, or discolored teeth.
In bridges, crowns are used to replace an actual missing tooth. These crowns are anchored to the teeth on either side, with a bridge section connecting the two crowns.request an appointment
Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. We recommend this treatment to anyone experiencing discoloration that cannot be fixed with whitening or if your teeth are damaged. Porcelain veneers are also an option if you’re unhappy with the shape or look of your natural teeth.
