Patients who have lost multiple teeth or are missing teeth in an entire arch are faced with daily challenges. Embarrassment from tooth loss, difficulty eating and speaking, and loss of facial structure are just a few consequences of multiple missing teeth.
Furthermore, suffering from tooth loss makes it hard to sustain proper oral and nutritional health, harming overall health and potentially causing systemic issues. For patients struggling with complete tooth loss or dissatisfied with loose, ill-fitting dentures, Island Dental Associates in Franklin Square and Shine Dental Associates in Syosset offer full arch dental implant options, including All-on-4® dental implants and implant supported dentures, as an ideal and virtually permanent solution for missing teeth.
Benefits of Full Arch Dental Implants
We offer multiple solutions to tooth loss with our dental implant options. Depending on the current state of your oral health you will receive the option that is most beneficial to your smile and overall health. Common options include implant supported dentures or All-on-4 dental implants. We may also recommend bone grafting procedures or a sinus lift to ensure your dental implants are firmly stabilized in your jaw bone for maximum benefits.
Coupling the longstanding benefits of dentures with the technology of dental implants, implant-supported dentures provide optimal oral health benefits. During the procedure, two or more dental implants are placed in your jaw bone. Once fully healed, your fixed or removable denture will be snapped into place for a confident, healthy new smile.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
Utilizing four strategically placed dental implants, All-on-4 allows for a temporary prosthesis to be placed on the same day as the procedure. Many times, patients with significant jaw bone loss may still qualify for All-on-4 dental implants. Once the dental implants have healed, your permanent prosthesis will be attached for a beautiful, fully functional new smile.
Combining Technology and Skill
We incorporate advanced technology into our treatment planning for highly predictable and more efficient results when performing full arch dental implants. During your consultation, we take high-resolution 3D images of your teeth, jaw, soft tissue, and nerves using a cone beam CT scan to optimize the location and position of your dental implants. Along with being highly skilled in placing implants our Board Certified periodontist, Dr. Vikas Mittle has received extensive training in the All-on-4 dental implant treatment to build on his current level of expertise as a periodontist.
