Implants vs. Dentures
Bone loss, changes in facial appearance and impaired nutritional intake are just a few of the problems resulting when missing teeth go unreplaced. Unfortunately, traditional dentures tend to exacerbate these factors, incurring the stress and discomfort inherent in this form of temporary tooth replacement. A revolutionary alternative to traditional dentures performed by leading dentist Dr. Michael Scherb is the implant technique know as All-on-4®. Not only is All-on-4 permanent, it delivers the stable, secure smile you have been missing.
The All-on-4 concept was designed as a permanent alternative to traditional dentures, and scores high in patient satisfaction*. Whether you have suffered with dentures for years, or have an imminent need for full-arch replacement, this option may be the right choice for you. Consider the life-changing benefits All-on-4 implants offer over traditional dentures:
The All-on-4 technique can be performed even when bone loss has occurred, as it relies on strategic placement of four implants positioned at specific angles within the arch. To ensure the most accurate technique for precision implant placement, Dr. Scherb utilizes advanced 3D imaging, allowing a below-the-gum view for planning ideal positioning. Sedation services may also be incorporated into this treatment option, if dental anxiety or phobia is a concern.
Implants have opened up a whole new world for tooth replacement, enabling previously unlikely candidates the chance to change their lives with permanence, brilliance and improved oral health. Learn more about our All-on-4® treatment option by scheduling your consultation with Dr. Scherb today.
