Many patients who have lived with a full set of dentures are very aware of the complications of living life without any of your natural teeth. It is difficult to eat and speak, and social functions can be uncomfortable due to a constant worry of an embarrassing denture mishap. Over time, your jaw bone wears away without having the anchors of your natural teeth, making wearing your set of dentures even more difficult. Implant supported dentures are an ideal solution for a stable, natural looking smile even if you have low bone density! Dr. Jeffrey Zatzkin is a periodontist in Tinton Falls, NJ offering his patients the All-on-4® method of implant supported dentures.
All-on-4® implant supported dentures are designed to allow a full arch of teeth to anchor to only four dental implants and give immediate function. This method does not usually require bone grafting, making it an optimal technique for patients with low bone density.
Before the procedure, Dr. Zatzkin will make sure you are sufficiently numb so you are comfortable during your appointment. Four dental implants are placed where it has been determined that you have the best bone density and volume. After placing the implants, Dr. Zatzkin will use a new or existing denture as a temporary set of teeth to allow for healing. You will never be without teeth! After healing (three to six months) a new set of permanent dentures will be anchored to your implants for a stable and permanent smile.
