There's a new way to help patients who have gone through life having had fillings, broken teeth, crowns, root canals, gum treatment, fixed bridges, extractions, partial dentures, or full dentures, and are ready to give up because they don't know of a solution to their dental problems. For patients who would like to be done with the frustration and expense of ongoing dental issues, there's a new approach: All-on-4® implant-supported dentures.
With only four dental implants, the All-on-4® treatment concept can restore a complete jaw of missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium. Dr. Cooper inserts the implant into the jaw where the titanium then integrates with the bone. Just like your tooth did before, the implant then builds a stable foundation for further reconstruction.
Depending on your individual situation, Dr. Cooper may be able to connect your implants to a temporary bridge on the day of surgery. This means you can leave the office with a full set of teeth and return to a normal life.
Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. The result is a natural smile that can bring back your confidence and quality of life.
Did you have to give up on some of your favorite dishes since you lost your teeth? Or do you feel selfconscious when talking to your colleagues and friends? Dental implants bring back the full function of natural teeth. No matter how hard, crunchy or sticky the food, dental implants can put it back on your menu.
The low number of implants needed considerably reduces treatment time and often makes this solution more cost-effective than comparable treatment alternatives. Tilting of the implants at the back of the mouth also makes it a treatment option for patients whose jaw bone is severely reduced.
Dental implants are very durable. With proper care and good oral hygiene, implants will last for many years or even a lifetime.
