The Differences Between Traditional Implant Dentures & All-on-4

March 10, 2018

Smiling senior man eating an appleWhen it comes to replacing numerous consecutive and nonconsecutive teeth or a full row of teeth, traditional partial and full dentures only restore those parts of the teeth visible in your smile. Implant supported dentures restore both the roots and crowns of missing teeth, but they aren’t always a great option for patients who have lost large amounts of healthy supportive bone and gum tissue. Luckily, there’s an innovative treatment that allows more patients than ever to receive an implant supported denture without the need for invasive preparatory grafting procedures. In this post, we’ll walk you through the differences between traditional implant dentures and All-on-4 to help you make an informed decision.

Dental Implants from Dr. John Carollo in Florham Park, NJ

May 15, 2015

480753457While advances in technology have diminished the numbers, many people are still living with missing teeth.

All three options offer the same unique benefit: osseointegration.

Dental Implants Can Restore Your Smile’s Natural Beauty and Health

October 23, 2014

184898853Despite the many advances of modern dentistry, including everything from fluoride toothpaste to periodontal disease therapy, people still have missing teeth. Sometimes due to decay and sometimes due to traumatic injury, a missing tooth has obvious cosmetic consequences. But did you know that there can also be repercussions to your oral health as well as your overall health? One missing tooth can lead to the misalignment of other teeth and an uneven bite, or even bone loss. And missing teeth can make chewing difficult, which may lead to a compromised diet.

Fortunately, Dr. John A. Carollo in Florham Park, NJ, specializes in several types of dental implants, which have become the restorative option of choice for one or more missing teeth. Dr. Carollo and his team will carefully examine your unique situation to determine which dental implant procedure is best for you.

The Choice of Dental Implant Procedures

Dr. Carollo can replace one missing tooth with a single tooth implant. First, a small post is implanted into the bone socket of the missing tooth. When that heals in about six to 12 weeks, an abutment is placed on the post and that holds the new tooth, or crown, in place. The crown is made from a model based on impressions of your teeth.

In a case where a patient has lost all of their upper or lower teeth, Dr. Carollo uses the All-on-4™ technique, which consists of a dental prosthesis that is held in place by four strategically placed dental implants. This treatment is usually completed in one day, and the results come much closer to the look and feel of natural teeth.

For a patient who does not have sufficient bone volume to support dental implants, there are zygomatic implants, which are embedded into the cheekbone where there is enough bone support. The entire process is computer guided, so treatment and healing time are much faster.
