The Ultimate Guide to Dental Implants


The Gold Standard

Gone are the days when dentures were the only option for people who had lost their teeth—dental implants, including All-on-4 implants, offer the closest thing possible to natural teeth.

With this approach, we can replace an entire arch (i.e., either your upper or lower teeth) with four implants that anchor a permanent bridge. Having a permanent restoration allows you to smile, speak and eat normally, and no one will know you don’t have your own natural teeth!

What Are They?

Implants, whether standard or All-on-4, consist of a titanium screw that is placed in the jaw bone to create an artificial tooth root. With standard implants, the screw is covered with a crown. In All-on-4, we place four implants at specific locations and then anchor a full-arch bridge to those posts.

A Streamlined Process

At Cure Dental, we would likely recommend the All-on-4 approach for patients who have lost all their teeth, and their current restoration is not functioning well anymore. We may also recommend them for people whose teeth are failing and need to be extracted.

We begin with a consultation and exam to assess your situation and talk about your options. If you choose to proceed, we’ll take special scans using the Cone Beam Computed Tomography machine. Using these scans, we create a digital guide to calculate the angulation of the implants. Once the implants are placed, it takes about a week to heal and then we can place the bridge.

With traditional implants, the healing time is much longer.

Making Care Accessible

All-on-4 can often be more affordable than individual implants. Our caring dental team will talk with you about your various treatment options and the costs associated with each. We accept all health funds with on-the-spot claiming available.
