We want every one of our patients with missing teeth to be able to rebuild their smiles. Unfortunately, there are many roadblocks that stand in the way of implant placement. Because dental implants require adequate jaw bone density to succeed, patients who have been missing teeth long-term often find that they need a bone graft before implant placement. The catch is that those same patients are more likely to have poor oral health because of their missing teeth, which makes bone grafts impossible. All-on-4® dental implants at our Naperville practice are a welcome solution.
The All-on-4 method is a type of implant placement. It targets the strong, thick jaw bone structure at the front of the jaws. Once four implants are placed in each the upper and lower jaw, fixed or removable restorations are then attached. By the end of the appointment, patients have both implants and new teeth in place – and they’re ready to heal while still enjoying full smiles.
We recommend dental implants to many patients missing teeth, because they are the most thorough and stable method of tooth replacement. With All-on-4, implants are accessible to a wider range of patients. In addition to receiving implants without traditionally adequate bone structure, patients gain rehabilitated smiles without waiting out a healing period.
The restoration attached to the implants can be a new one, or a set of dentures that you have already been using. We will make the necessary alternations to ensure an ideal fit.
Dr. Zymantas has received advanced education in the placement of implants, as well as specific implant techniques. He has seen so many happy patients leave our office with fresh, refurbished teeth in place, and a brighter outlook on the future ahead.
