All-On-4® Dental Implants in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Area
Improve Your Smile & Boost Your Oral Health
Full mouth reconstruction is a very different process from a smile makeover where the primary purpose is to improve the appearance of your teeth. With full mouth reconstruction, a combination of complex treatments will rebuild a badly damaged mouth, restoring a person’s ability to smile, talk, and eat confidently and comfortably.
What Is All-On-4® Dental Implants?
One particular technique that can be enormously helpful when replacing a full arch of teeth is to use a procedure called All-on-4®. With this highly specialized technique, just four to six dental implants are required to secure a complete arch of teeth. People wishing to secure an upper arch of teeth may need six dental implants, but this is still far fewer than would be required for conventional dental implant treatment. This is possible due to the positioning of the teeth, which maximizes the use of healthy jawbone. Often, we can supply a temporary denture that will be secured to the dental implants on the same day as treatment. Best of all, our patients leave the same day with a brand-new smile!
Patients have become educated on dental implants over the past decade, but most don’t think to ask about what material their restorative teeth are made of. Until now, there have been only two options: acrylic hybrid and zirconia (or some form of porcelain) for implant-retained crowns (dental implants) and full-mouth restorations (All-on-4®).
As the leading dental implant technology, XircOn Ultra and XircOn Ultimate boasts unbeatable advantages over other options like acrylic and zirconia. At Radiance Dentistry, Dental Implant Center, we are proud to be the only provider in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that offers All-on-4® dental implants with XircOn Ultra and XircOn Ultimate.
