About All-on-4 Dentures
For patients with missing teeth, Laser Smile Studio in Denton, TX offers options. Patients who are missing several teeth but do not have the budget, or perhaps the bone structure for other options, may be thrilled to find out that All-on-4 dental implants are a possibility. During this dental procedure, board-certified dentist, Dr. Todd McCracken, will surgically install four dental implants into the jawbone. After the implants have healed, a pair of custom made, permanent dentures will be attached offering a new, more visually appealing smile. In addition to using just four implants, All-on-4 dental implants make the most of the existing bone in the jaw and do not usually require bone grafting, meaning a quicker recovery than other more invasive options. Contact our office today for more information, or to set up your consultation with Dr. McCracken.

What to Expect
To ensure All-on-4 dentures fit securely and naturally, our dental team will use digital X-rays, CT scans, and/or physical impressions of the patient's mouth that will be sent to the Nobel BioCare lab. With the patient under general or local anesthesia, the dentist will surgically implant the anchors in the upper and/or lower jawbone. The patient will be given temporary dentures to wear as their permanent dentures are being made and their implants integrate into the bone. Once the implants are secure, Dr. McCracken will attach the permanent dentures to the implants and adjust for a comfortable fit.
Once the permanent dentures are in place, the patient will have check-ups over the next few weeks and months to perfect the fit of the dentures. All-on-4 implant dentures should be cared for with daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash, just like natural teeth. The patient should continue to schedule professional cleanings and dental exams as recommended by Laser Smile Studio. With proper care, All-on-4 implant dentures can last 5 - 10 years.
Depending on the patient's dental insurance carrier and specific policy, some of the cost of All-on-4 implant dentures may be covered. Our office will work with the patient's insurance company to determine your coverage and maximize their benefits before determining your costs. Our office accepts several payment options and we offer financing plans to make dental care affordable.
