Why The All-on-4® Treatment Concept Is Better Than Dentures
Dentures are a common, though often life-changing dental restoration. Patients are required to make drastically habit changing differences in how they eat, speak, and in their dental routine to care for their dentures. Our team at Mountain Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center can help. Dr. Ryan can reduce these life changes and dramatically increase your overall comfort by permanently retaining your dentures with the placement of dental implants.
The Problem With Traditional Dentures
Dentures are needed when there are no healthy teeth remaining. They provide the patient with the ability to chew food, speak more clearly and feel more at ease in social situations. The problem with dentures is that they will never feel quite like the natural teeth you once had without surgical assistance. Dentures that are retained through suction or adhesives come with continual awareness of their presence and the need to make sure that they are in place.
Patients often complain that dentures come with a number of problems:
Benefits of The All-on-4® Treatment Concept
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept takes your denture device, either your previously made denture or new customized one, and with the placement of four dental implants in each arch, retains the denture permanently to your jaw. With healing time, the implants will bond with your jawbone, creating a firm hold.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is different than other implant procedures. Most tooth implant procedures require a bone graft and months of preparatory work. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is an immediate load implant retained denture. This means that you can come in to the office without teeth and leave that day with a full set of teeth. The specific design and placement of the implants do not require a preparatory bone graft, and though healing can take months, the patient can immediately begin eating soft foods.
Our patients at Mountain Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center love the freedom that the All-on-4® Treatment Concept provides. This system allows the patient to forget that they have dentures, they have increased self confidence and increased overall comfort in their day to day life. Dr. Ryan is happy to show you the process, how it works, and how it can significantly increase your happiness when your natural teeth are no longer an option.

REFERRING DOCTORS LOVE US
"Had an overall great experience with Dr. Ryan. The staff was very courteous and professional. Most important, the work they did, (two implants, to hold lower dentures) was very secure and I'm free of the hassle and pain. I was concerned at first but he answered all my questions and the whole procedure went well. I definitely would recomend them if you need that type of work done. 2 thumbs up!"

"The office is well run. Everyone I had contact with was friendly and knowledgeable. Procedures were explained and all questions answered. Oral surgery can be an intimidating proposition, but Dr. Ryan and his staff are sensitive to that by providing excellent pain management and results."
