Dental implants are a valuable alternative to traditional dentures and similar forms of bridgework. While dentures have provided generations with solutions to tooth loss, this option is not ideal for every patient. Advanced dental technology, including All on 4 dental implants, offer patients a permanent solution to tooth loss. Dr. Allen Huang, a periodontist in Las Vegas, NV, specializes in the placement of dental implants and the All-on-4™ system. Patients at Significance Dental Specialists can enjoy a lifetime of enhanced dental health and a beautiful new smile thanks to this important system.

Going Beyond a Standard Implant

A basic dental implant is intended to replace a single tooth with a highly durable crown mounted on a biocompatible titanium post. The post is set directly into the jawbone and acts as a sort of artificial tooth root. The result is a firm, securely placed implant that can bite and chew just like a natural tooth. Some patients need to replace a series of teeth. Placing numerous basic implants is not necessary. Instead, the All-on-4™ system can be selected.

More Than Just a New Kind of Denture

All-on-4™ consists of a denture-style implant connected to just four posts. A series of crowns are crafted to perfectly match the appearance of nearby teeth so the result is a natural-looking smile. All-on-4™ has many advantages over traditional dentures. For instance:

  • All-on-4™ is a permanent tooth loss solution.
  • The crowns do not slip or slide.
  • No expensive powders or pastes are required.
  • Adhesive products do not need to be used.
  • Biting and chewing are easy and comfortable.

Patients who have lost just one or two teeth are usually well-served by regular dental implants. Patients seeking to replace numerous teeth and who would like to explore alternatives to traditional dentures are encouraged to contact Dr. Huang for an evaluation.
