Keep your healthy, complete smile with affordable, “graft-less” All-on-4 implants
At Beachside Smiles, we believe all patients deserve to have healthy teeth and gums. Missing teeth do not have to be in your future. Led by Dr. Don Mungcal, our team in Manhattan Beach, California partners with patients of all ages to preserve their teeth. We recommend prompt replacement when natural, damaged teeth cannot be preserved. Options include the “gold standard” in tooth replacement: dental implants.
Implants may be used to replace one tooth or all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaws (as an All-on-4 implant denture).
The implant alternative
Dental implant-supported prosthetics provide a comfortable, cosmetic, and long-lasting alternative to conventional tooth replacement with dental bridges and removable partial and full dentures.
The implant is a cylindrical-shaped “post” made from a biocompatible dental material, such as titanium and zirconium. Implants function as tooth roots. Once precisely positioned in the jawbone by our skilled dentists, the implant naturally and safely “fuses” or “osseointegrates” to the surrounding bone. It becomes a part of the jaw. The prosthetic tooth is attached to the implant. So, the implant supports the replacement tooth (or crown) connected to it, just like a natural tooth root!
Due to this design (which “mimics” natural tooth structure), there are many benefits associated with implant-supported replacement teeth. These benefits include:
- Unparalleled stability and retention
- Superior comfort
- Natural aesthetics and feel in the mouth
- Supports natural chewing and function
- Utmost strength and durability
- Prevents bone loss in the jaw
For those missing many teeth in the upper or lower dental arch(es), we may recommend the “All-on-4” implant system. As few as four implants are precisely positioned in the jawbone to support a maximum number of replacement teeth. Minimal implants effectively support all of the teeth in the jaw(s). The “magic” of this system is in the design. The implants are positioned to make the most of the bone in the jaw. This option is ideal for patients who are not good candidates for bone grafting. This approach to replacing many teeth is a low-maintenance alternative to conventional dentures. Since All-on-4 implants keep the bone in the jaw strong, there is no need for continual relining, rebasing, and other services associated with traditional dentures. All-on-4 implants support the fastest, most comfortable, and most affordable treatment process.
