Missing teeth can have a massive impact on your confidence and oral function. Tooth loss makes you avoid smiling in public, and everyday chores like eating and talking become a source of pain and embarrassment.
Have you had enough of missing teeth, and conventional dentures aren’t an option? Maegan Elam, DDS and Associates in Bedford, Texas, serving residents in and around the community, including Fort Worth, offers All-On-4 Dental Implants to complete your smile. Also called “Teeth in a Day,” All-on-4 dental implants are permanent, solid, and perfectly natural. These teeth replacements are like your old teeth but more predictable.
We love dental implants because they can replace one, several, or all missing teeth. If you are missing one to three teeth, you need an implant for every tooth lost. But what if you are missing teeth in an entire arch or both? While replacing each space with an implant is possible, this procedure can be costly and extensive.
When you have extensive tooth loss, All-on-4 dental implants can replace teeth in the upper or lower jaw conservatively and cost-effectively. As their name suggests, All-on-4 dental implants use four implants to restore an entire arch of teeth.
This innovative technique uses two implants at the front and two at the rear of the mouth to support a fixed set of artificial teeth! What’s more, unlike conventional implants, same-day teeth provide immediate function and aesthetics. You leave our office with a full set of functional teeth!
The process starts with a consultation with Dr. Maegan Elam to establish your implant eligibility. Generally, you should be in good health and have sufficient bone density to support implants. If you are a good candidate, we refer you to a trusted oral surgeon to place the implants.
After implant surgery, we’ll place temporary replacement teeth to support your smile as your implants heal and fuse. After about four to six months, we’ll remove the temporary teeth and replace them with permanent ones for durable function and aesthetics.
All-on-4 dental implants offer a fast and reliable way to regain a beautiful and functional smile.
