The All-on-4 approach connects a fixed bridge to as few as four dental implants to give you a secure, permanent smile. Our team will place these implants into areas of your jaw with the most bone, so bone grafting is often unnecessary. Immediately after implant placement, we will create a temporary bridge of teeth to fit your implants that restore function and aesthetics to your mouth while your permanent teeth are created. Your final teeth are made from either acrylic or attractive porcelain and will be custom created to match your smile goals. With proper care, the dental implants can last you for the rest of your life, but you may need repairs or touch-ups in the future if your bridge chips or cracks.
National Dental’s Upper Eastside 40th Street location is the home of Teeth Tomorrow. While this alone makes us the experts in the procedure, there are many additional benefits as well. Teeth Tomorrow is similar in concept to All-on-4 dental implants, but uses five to six dental implants for improved stability. After our doctors place your dental implants, you are allowed to go home to rest and recover, returning the next day for your temporary bridge. This extra day allows us to create a more natural-looking bridge and improves the comfort of the fit since you won’t be affected by sedation at the time. Finally, the biggest difference of Teeth Tomorrow is that your final bridge is created out of a solid piece of Prettau® Zirconia, an incredibly durable, attractive and non-porous material, and hand-painted to match your smile. Prettau Zirconia has a 100 percent success rate for patients receiving permanent bridges, meaning it won’t chip, crack, break or retain odors. When you choose Teeth Tomorrow, you can expect to have strong, attractive teeth that will be able to keep up with your lifestyle.
