All-on-Four Implants

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are more comfortable and stable than traditional dentures. They offer you better functionality as well as numerous health benefits. Traditional dentures often slip out of place and make embarrassing noises when you are eating or speaking. Implant-supported dentures, however, do not. They are held firmly in place for a more natural function and appearance. Dentures supported by implants are also more comfortable, fit better, encourage growth and preserve your facial structure.

Implant supported dentures are usually placed in your lower jaw where stability is needed most. They can, however, be placed anywhere. Once the implants have been put in place, there is a three to six month waiting period while they stabilize. Once this happens, the dentures are attached to your implants using one of two methods:

retained

Bar-Retained Dentures Supported By Implants

A metal bar is constructed to run along your gum line and then attached to your implants. The dentures are then secured to the metal bar using clips or other attachments.

Ball-Retained Dentures Supported by Implants

These use a ball and socket method to hold your dentures in place. Typically, your implants are fitted with a ball-like attachment while your dentures are fitted with sockets. In this way, your dentures can snap in and out of place easily.

All-on-Four Implant Supported Dentures

The All-on-Four solution is designed for those with a limited amount of bone in their jaw and is an alternative dental implant solution that maximizes the use of available bone for immediate use with just four implants! The All-on-Four technique has a 98.5 percent success rate at the four-year follow-up and has been available for over ten years.

All-on-Four Implant Technique

The All-on-Four Technique is specifically designed to use only four implants that are available for immediate function. All-on-Four implants do not typically require bone grafting, so they are an ideal solution if you have areas of low bone density or volume. Four dental implants will be placed according to where your bone volume is best. Once the implants have been placed, your new or existing denture is used as the framework for a temporary set of teeth that will be attached that day. Once the bone has fully integrated with the implant (3-6 months), your temporary teeth are removed, and your new, final set of teeth are made and anchored into place permanently.

Our Happy Patients

"I was going to another dentist who didn't quite get it... after switching to Dr. Shlafer I now know how THE BEST DENTIST ever operates! Dr. Shlafer first treated me for a bite-issue that would not go away. Soon after my first visit I was pain-free! Recently I had an area where food often got stuck - after Dr. Shlafer worked his magic I no longer have that issue. I drive all the way from Highland Township to see Dr. Shlafer -- and, it's well worth it. No matter where you live Dr. Shlafer is the ONLY dentist that I'd recommend. Thanks Doc!"

"The staff here is stellar. I've been going here for years now and have never had a bad experience. The women at the desk greet everyone by name, and the doctor remembers everything you tell him about yourself. Everyone here knows what they're doing, a trip here is never a hassle, and they'll always keep your best interest in mind."

"I am a patient of Dr. Shlafer and he has helped me tremendously. I had to have a lot corrective dentistry done and I sought out Dr. Shlafer to take on the challenge. I have told many people that he is a master in his field. He pays attention to the details and is extremely skilled in his craft way beyond normal denistry. I send all my friends and family to him especially if there is something out of the ordinary that needs to be done. He has advanced training and can take on serious issues."
