Are you looking into your tooth replacement options? Perhaps you are considering wearing dentures to restore your appearance. When it comes to replacing one’s biological teeth, it is important to review all your treatment options with a dental health professional like an oral surgeon.
If you have dental insurance, your coverage might pick up some of the costs if you haven’t exceeded your yearly limits. For those with questions about the cost of treatment for dentures and All-on-4, we recommend speaking with our team after your appointment so that we can give more accurate estimates based on our doctor’s treatment recommendations.
Will dentures look natural?
Many people’s first question when it comes to learning about potential replacement teeth is whether their prosthetics will look natural. Today’s dentures are made to very exact dimensions so that they fit perfectly over the ridges of the jaw and inside of the mouth. A properly fitting denture is important for maintaining a natural looking appearance. Nothing gives away the fact that a person has prosthetic teeth faster than replacement teeth that fit improperly.
In addition to a custom fit, dentures lend a beautiful aesthetic to one’s smile because these prosthetics are made from lifelike materials like porcelain to mimic tooth structure and acrylic bases tinted to blend in with the gum line. Using the latest technology and the finest materials, modern dentures provide a beautiful arch of replacement teeth that conforms to a person’s unique oral anatomy.
What is All-on-4?
All-on-4 is a method of increasing denture stability by attaching arches of prosthetic teeth to dental implants. Dental implants are prosthetics used to replace the root surfaces of teeth. This is done by embedding small titanium components throughout the jaw. Four dental implants are placed in very specific locations so that they can endure the weight and force placed upon dentures during oral function.
Dental implants are durable and long lasting bases for prosthetics and restorations. With dental implants, those who wear All-on-4 enjoy unprecedented denture stability, comfort when eating, and a beautiful smile. Moreover, dental implants extend the life of prosthetic teeth and thus help reduce healthcare costs.
