Conventional dentures were one of the first treatment options for patients who were missing all of their teeth. However, while effective, these treatment options came with several disadvantages, including slipping and sliding around in the mouth when eating, talking, laughing, etc.
Eventually, dental implants began to be used, which was a more stable option. Each tooth was replaced with a dental implant which was inserted into the jawbone. This allowed patients to confidently eat, talk, laugh, etc. However, the problem with this option is affordability. Each implant can cost up to $6,000 and full-mouth implants can cost up to $40,000.
All-on-4 dental implants is a hybrid solution that combines the stability of dental implants with the affordability of dentures. If you need to replace most or all of your teeth in one or both arches, All-on-4 at Sunflower Dental Spa might be a great option for you. In fact, Dr. Barbara Wetmore and Dr. Justin Lieneck have the experience and expertise to perform several dental restoration procedures.
