If you have complete dentures or are in need of them, you may be wondering if there’s a better way. Removable dentures can slip in the mouth during chewing and speaking, which may cause some potential embarrassment. But now there’s a way to permanently restore your smile to its Dental Implants rightful beauty and functionality in just one day. New Haven dental patients can choose All-On-Four dental implants for a perfect, natural looking smile in no time.

What are All-On-Four Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your jaw to replace your tooth’s root. In single implant procedures, a crown is then placed on top of the implant to give the look and feel of a natural tooth.

With the All-On-Four procedure, your dentist only needs to place four dental implants into the upper or lower gums. A set of replacement teeth then snap into those four implants, which creates a snug fit that won’t slip. There’s no more worrying about dental creams or adhesives. Your beautiful new teeth will stay put!

Really? Just One day?

Your New Haven dentist can give you a beautiful new set of teeth affixed to implants in just one day. How do they do it? Well, since you only need four dental implants per jaw, the procedure is much less invasive than placing many more implants at one time. Once your dentist has placed the implants, the replacement teeth can be secured to the implants within 24 hours. After about six months of healing time, once the implants have permanently fused to your jawbone, you will be fitted again for a permanent set of replacement teeth.

If you’re tired of missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures, talk to your dentist about All-On-Four Teeth in a Day. You may be surprised to find out how simple the procedure can be. Dr. Francesco P. Maratta, your board-certified prosthodontist in New Haven, CT, offers All-On-Four implants as well as traditional single dental implants to meet your needs.
