Are you dealing with missing or severely damaged teeth? We’d love to talk to you about dental implants. This modern tooth-replacement treatment is truly incredible. More than helping restore the natural beauty and function of your smile, tooth implants are the next best thing when your own teeth are no longer there or not possible to save.
We’re proud to offer this superior tooth replacement treatment in Escondido, CA. Our office is equipped with the latest technology designed to make the dental implant process stress-free and highly successful. We use a very highly sophisticated piece of technology that allows for fully-guided implant placement, called the X-Guide Navigation System. This system allows for great implant placement precision on every implant placement.
What Are Dental Implants?
Whether you’ve lost a tooth due to disease, injury, or extraction, a dental implant fills the gap and restores your smile. This highly sophisticated medical-grade device is made of strong and resistant biocompatible materials. The implant is placed in the bone structure under your gums, taking the place of your tooth’s root. This process strengthens your jawbone and provides a stable foundation for the visible portion of your implant — usually an implant crown, dental bridge, or retained denture.
With All-on-4 implants, replacing multiple missing or damaged teeth at once with a durable and lasting restoration is easy. Our office is equipped with modern technology and high-tech tools to allow for an easy and carefree treatment experience. You deserve the best, and All-on-4 dental implants from TLC Escondido Dental are it. Most patients can complete All-on-4 implants in just one day!
Combining many of the positive benefits of both dentures and dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants can replace a full jaw of teeth all in one day. Once the implant treatment is finished, most patients will have temporary healing dentures attached to their implants placed on the very same day. This allows you to eat and speak like normal until we can place your permanent custom dentures once your mouth has healed from treatment. The result is a smile that looks natural and feels comfortable.
Why Choose All-On-4 Dental Implants?
- Looks and feels just like your natural teeth
- Supports and protects your jaw and facial bone structure
- Allows you to eat and smile as you always remember before having teeth problems
- Can replace a full jaw of teeth with fewer implants
When Do We Recommend All-On-4 Dental Implants?
Missing or damaged teeth can cause problems for the health of your smile and the rest of your body. In fact, losing a tooth can create bone loss, potentially causing you to experience a sunken-looking face. This is because of the loss of the tooth’s root, which works in conjunction with your jaw and facial bones to keep your body functioning normally.
While replacing teeth with traditional dentures might make your smile look “acceptable,” the root of the tooth is never replaced. So while everything might look normal, you still are losing bone mass in your jaw, leading to future instability of the denture.
All-on-4 implants, also known as implant-supported dentures, replace your tooth’s root with an implant, before placing special permanent dentures on top of the implant. These dentures are attached to your implants and cannot be removed. This gives you the necessary support for your teeth.
