Implant-Supported Dentures

All On 4 Dental Implants

Many people have full dentures, but aren’t happy with the changing fit, the denture slippage that occurs when eating or talking, and the overall lack of confidence.

At The Hills Dental Spa in Austin, we recommend implant-supported dentures, particularly the All-on-4® dental implant system. By adding dental implants to full-arch dentures, patients can enjoy the stability and strength that the anchoring implants provide. And if you seek an instant transformation in your smile and your life, our All-on-4® dental implant system takes you from no teeth to full upper and lower arches of new teeth in just a single day. Amazing!

How Do Implants Improve Dentures?

Because our bodies accept titanium, the jawbone grows around the implant, making it a part of the jawbone. A post is then attached to the implant and an artificial tooth is attached to the post. At The Hills Dental Spa, we only use Nobel Biocare™ dental implants, the industry’s finest.

Replacing many or all of your teeth with dental implants is too costly, but implants make the perfect anchors for dentures. Whether it’s for a partial denture replacing a series of teeth or full-arch replacement, we use implants to provide the foundation upon which the dentures attach to. No more slipping. No more avoiding foods like corn on the cob. Our patients with implant-supported dentures have confidence in their teeth and love their new smiles.

What Is The All-On-4® Dental Implant System?

Smiling couple with All-on-4 denture implants in Austin, TXDental implants have been used to anchor full and partial dentures before, but these usually required 6-8 traditional implants on each arch. These implants needed healthy jawbone mass to anchor effectively. Problem is — patients who have been missing their teeth for a period of time often have diminished jawbone mass. This meant they would need bone grafting prior to being able to have implants.

Plus, using 6 to 8 implants per arch was cost prohibitive.

The All-on-4® dental implants method changes everything. Dr. Winters, DDS, only places four implants on each arch, and in most cases he can do this without bone grafting. This is because the back two implants (we use NobelSpeedy® implants) are placed at a 30- to 45-degree angle from the biting plane, rather than vertically. This means these back implants can have sufficient bone mass, even if the patient has lost mass in their jawbone. The front two implants on each arch are placed vertically because there is usually less bone loss toward the front of the jaw.

Once the dental implants are placed on the top and bottom arches, a prosthetic with between 10-14 teeth is permanently attached to the four implants on each arch. Now the patient will have a full set of strong, functioning teeth again, and this all happens in a single day!

All-on-4® implant dentures have been used for over 20 years now and has continued to improve with technology. Today, 98 percent of patients worldwide having the All-on-4® dental implant system would recommend the procedure to others.
