Recently learned you do not qualify for implant-retained dentures because of your weakened jawbone? This is an unfortunate reality for many patients; however, Dr. Mark Makram and his team are pleased to offer All-On-4 in North Naples. This unique alternative allows you to move forward with dental implant placement without the additional bone graft. By placing four implants strategically along the jawbone, he can ensure maximum support for your custom-made denture. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
All-On-4 dental implants are similar to traditional implants but instead of placing 6-8 posts along the jawbone, Dr. Makram will only use four. Made of titanium, these small restorations mimic the natural tooth structure and serve to stimulate the jawbone just like a regular tooth root.
When preparing your treatment plan, he will identify denser areas of the bone and place two implants toward the back of the arch (posterior) at a 45-degree angle and the other two toward the front. This will create a stable and solid foundation for your restoration as well as ensure you have an even bite force.
All-On-4 dental implants in North Naples offer patients a truly unique experience. Some of the benefits you can expect include:
Implant-retained dentures are a great solution for someone with ample jawbone density or who are willing to undergo a bone grafting procedure. However, by choosing All-On-4, you can eliminate the need for an additional pre-implant procedure and instead, allow Dr. Makram to place your implants in the densest, most supportive areas of your jawbone. In return, you will have a denture that rests on top of your implants and remains firmly in place for years to come. Not to mention, you will leave with a temporary denture the same day you have your implants put into place, allowing you to immediately start enjoying your new smile.
