More than 30 million North Americans are missing one, several, or all their teeth. We might shrug this off and say, “They can wear dentures, can’t they?” But there is an invisible problem associated with tooth loss hiding below the gumline. Bone tissue needs stimulation to maintain its strength and health. Wherever your jaw is missing teeth, bone disintegrates. But do not despair. There is a wonderful and permanent solution to the problem of bone loss. At Prisma Dental, in beautiful San Jose, Costa Rica, All-on-4 and All-on-6 implant-supported dentures uses 4 or 6 dental implants to support your dentures and help you chew the foods you love and smile with confidence.
A dental implant is a titanium alloy post that is inserted into the jawbone, taking the place of missing roots. With All-on-4, four dental implants are placed, and with All-on-6, six implants are placed. These dental implants are stable and just like natural tooth roots, they improve blood circulation to keep your jawbone healthy and intact. In most cases, a specially designed denture can be attached to your implants the very same day!
No need for bone grafts!
Even if you have been told you don’t have enough bone to support an implant, the All-on-4 and All-on-6 solutions use only 4 (or 6) dental implants, so we can place them where the bone is healthiest. If you’ve been told you have lost too much bone for dental implants, one of these solutions might be the perfect choice for you.
