Dan’s All-on-4 Dental Implants Story

Image of "Dan" a patient who was able to benefit from the All-on-4 dental implants procedure for total teeth replacement at Southpointe Dental in Lincoln, NE.

When Dan came to see the team at Nebraska Family Dentistry, he was complaining of soreness in his mouth. Ultimately, he had a desire to extract his remaining teeth. From talking to his friends and family, Dan knew he did not want traditional dentures. Instead, Dan was looking for a permanent replacement of his teeth. He wanted to have something that would look and feel like the natural teeth he used to have.

Additionally, besides wanting a permanent solution for replacing his teeth, his health was affected by his remaining infected teeth. Dan’s family physician suggested removing the teeth as soon as possible. Thus, helping to eliminate the bacteria and inflammation. Furthermore, Dan’s doctor was positive that removing the diseased teeth would improve Dan’s oral and overall health.

Dan proceeded with the Hybrid Prosthesis, also known as All-on-4 total implants for total teeth replacement. At a check-up appointment, Dan stated: “It took about two weeks after the implant placement for my implant bridges to feel better. After two weeks, I started having more energy, and the general drowsiness was gone.

Overall, I had an easier time controlling my diabetes. In fact, my doctor confirmed it with a blood test. All things considered, I now enjoy eating with my new teeth. Above all, it is great to know that I do not have to use any denture glue or need a cup to put my dentures in overnight.”

Bone Loss From Loss of Teeth

When you lose all your teeth, the bones in your jaw naturally begin to deteriorate. Without teeth, your jawbones have no support. As a result, time takes a toll on your face, causing your face to sink in and make you look older.

However, with full mouth dental implants (also called the All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants), you can help stop bone loss. Dental implants stimulate bone, just as a normal tooth would, which, in turn, stops the facial aging process that often occurs bone resorption.

Teeth Replacement Options In Lincoln, NE

  • Dental Bridge – A dental bridge from a dentist in Lincoln, NE, is, in short, a permanent set of dental crowns that bridges the gap created by a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Abutment teeth, or the teeth surrounding the opening, a bridge stands fixed over the spot where natural teeth once lived. Abutment teeth help hold the bridge in place

    Dental Bridge Cost – On average the cost of a dental bridge in Lincoln, NE is generally somewhere between $2400 – $3000. Ultimately, there are several factors that will determine the final cost of your dental bridge such as dental insurance and how many teeth you have on your bridge.

  • Custom Dentures – Dentures are a set of removable teeth. They can be used to replace the teeth of someone who is edentulous or has suffered tooth loss. A mouth is made up of two arches, one for each jaw or top and bottom. Custom dentures can be used for one or both jaws and can be partial or full. Those who wear dentures must remove them each day for a certain amount of time and thoroughly clean them during removal. Regardless of the type of dentures you are seeking, be sure to do your homework so that you can find the “best dentist for dentures near me” to ensure your new smile will be functional and look great.

    Custom Dentures Cost – Just like any other medical procedure, the cost of custom dentures depends on several factors. Schedule a consultation with our dentist in Lincoln, NE to see what new dentures will cost you.

All-on-4 Dental Implants: Excellent Replacement Teeth for Preventing Bone Loss

Image of a woman who is happy after learning of the benefit of the All-on-4 dental implants procedure for total teeth replacement done by a cosmetic dentist in Lincoln, NE.


Millions of people suffer tooth loss, but today, there are a handful of solutions. But the most known for preventing bone loss is, by far, Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants). It’s a brand new procedure, and we’re proud to offer it to our patients with the help of Nebraska Oral and Facial Surgery. Nobel Biocare, a dental supply company, recently developed this technology to provide a more precise, cost-effective, and long-lasting option for those in need of replacement teeth. It utilizes a computer-guided implant surgery which allows our dentist in Lincoln, NE and the oral surgeon to prepare the final implants before the patient undergoes surgery.

As a result, patients walk away with little postoperative discomfort and a brand new set of permanent teeth. In most cases, patients can resume regular routines the day after the procedure. Because the prosthesis is implanted to your jawbone, it prevents bone loss. As a result, your jaw helps maintain your face’s shape over time, unlike other methods of teeth replacement.

The Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) often sounds too good to be true and it leaves patients wondering:

Can you replace teeth permanently?
Yes! Dental implants and the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) offer a comfortable and attractive solution for those who have lost teeth due to injury or decay. Implants and the Hybrid Prosthesis are a permanent tooth option that feel and look like real teeth.
 

The Process of All-on-4 Implants or All-on-6 Implants, commonly known as The Hybrid Prosthesis

If you elect to have Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants), the process will be relatively simple, as follows:

1. Attend a Free Consultation At the consultation, you’ll discuss your treatment plan with Dr. Anton Diy and Dr. Rallis. They’ll work through a customized plan for your particular needs and give you the total cost of the procedure.

2. Full Exam Upon deciding to undergo the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants), you’ll once again meet with the dentists, and they’ll finalize your treatment plan. Then, they’ll prepare all the things they need for you to receive the treatment, and schedule the procedure.

3. Receive Dental Implants Next, you’ll surgically undergo treatment to receive your dental implants. Your implants will hold a temporary set of teeth. These teeth will look and feel just like real teeth. You’ll wear them only temporarily while a dental lab creates your truly permanent new teeth.

4. Post-Procedure Check-Up There is a short recovery period following the actual procedure. While your implants heal, you’ll have to eat soft food and come back in to ensure proper healing. But don’t worry: soon you’ll be able to eat anything you want without dismay!

5. Receive Permanent Teeth Finally, after your mouth is finished healing, you’ll receive your new, permanent teeth which will last you a lifetime. You’ll be able to say goodbye to no teeth or removable teeth, and you’ll take care of them by brushing every day. Congratulations!

Most people get dentures after losing their teeth. However, we believe that the benefits of the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) outweighs those of any other replacement teeth option.

1. Beautiful, Natural Teeth With the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants), you can have beautiful and natural-looking teeth in one day. Even your temporary set of teeth will appear natural and beautiful, and you can be assured that they’ll be a great replacement teeth alternative.

2. Fast & Effective This procedure delivers the most effective results out of all dental implant options. As far as the implant part goes, this happens in a single appointment!

3. Optimal Safety and Comfort The procedure of the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) uses gentle oral sedation, which ensures your comfort and safety.

4. More Cost-Efficient Overall, Hybrid Prosthesis is more cost-efficient than single multiple implants.

5. Maintains Bone Structure Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) helps to maintain bone structure, unlike other types of teeth replacements.

Among these benefits, this procedure will help you look and feel happier. Ultimately, it’s a healthier option than dentures, and it even gives you back the opportunity to have a full mouth of natural teeth.

Alternative Methods of Replacement Teeth

We know that the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) isn’t for everyone. Those who can’t afford Hybrid Prosthesis will probably be looking at cosmetic dentures as their next option.

Cosmetic Dentures

Usually, a complete cosmetic denture will cost about $2500. The price can vary depending on a handful of factors, ranging anywhere from $300-$25,000. In general, you can assume that the price will reflect the quality of the denture. For instance, a $300 denture is much more likely to break than a $2500 denture.

Cosmetic dentures are fabricated over the course of several appointments. Unlike the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants), it isn’t a dental implant. This means that it needs to be removed for cleaning each night, and must be kept out of the patient’s mouth until the morning. Our cosmetic dentures are made up of a high-quality acrylic nano-hybrid. This material is chip-resistant and tends to last longer than dentures made of other materials. Not only is each pair of dentures made custom, but the colors of the different denture parts are also custom. Our dentists in Lincoln, NE are able to match almost any tooth and gum shade with our cosmetic dentures.

What is the cheapest way to replace teeth?
While there are multiple options when it comes to teeth replacement, there isn’t one option that can be guaranteed as the cheapest. Because every situation is unique, there are various factors that can contribute to the overall cost of teeth replacement.

If you know someone who had their teeth replaced for a certain dollar amount, understand that doesn’t mean it would cost the same for you to replace your teeth with the same option. Underlying health conditions, the number of visits involved, and the expected outcome are only a few of the factors that can contribute to teeth replacement cost. Also important is that there is not a universal replacement option – which means that what works for someone else might not work for you and vice versa.

How much does it cost to replace all your teeth?
The cost of replacing all teeth varies. The national average is roughly $34,000 for a full set of implants. If this number concerns you, don’t worry there are many alternative options for teeth replacement. Contact your dentist in Lincoln, NE today to learn more about your replacement options.

Frequently Asked Questions about All-on-4 Implants for Teeth Replacement

Image of a happy man after learning about the benefits of the All-on-4 dental implants procedure for total teeth replacement done by a cosmetic dentist in Lincoln, NE.

Who should get a Hybrid Prosthesis?

Those who have lost or are about to lose all of their teeth make great candidates for the Hybrid Prosthesis. Additionally, current denture wearers make great candidates for this procedure and our dentists in Lincoln, NE would be happy to explain all the benefits of the Hybrid Prosthesis (or All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants.

Other dentists told me I’m not a candidate for a dental implant. Am I a candidate for Hybrid Prosthesis?

Nine out of ten people who are not candidates for traditional dental implants are able to receive full mouth dental implants associated with the Hybrid Prosthesis (All-on-4 implants or All-on-6 implants) right here from a dentist near me in Lincoln, NE. This is because other implant procedures use bone grafting or sinus augmentations. Hybrid Prosthesis uses neither. So yes, it’s very likely you are a candidate!

Do I need to use certain products to wear hybrids?

Because the bridgework is secured to implants, there is no need to use denture adhesives or other products used to clean or store dentures. It is recommended to use a Waterpik to maintain the hybrid and keep gums and tissues healthy.

I have a strong gag reflex and cannot tolerate a traditional denture. Will hybrids rest against the roof of my mouth?

Hybrids are less bulky than dentures and do not rest against the palate at all. This allows you to sense temperatures of food and taste normally, unlike with traditional upper dentures.

How long can I expect my hybrid to last?

Hybrids have extremely high success rates. Typically hybrids last for years.. There are some factors that can influence the success rates of hybrids. Smoking, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, not following post-operative instructions or dietary restrictions, patients with diabetes, osteoporosis or other specific medical conditions can affect the longevity of your hybrids.

Should I take time off of work?

It is a good idea to take a few days off to relax after your surgery. However, if you are in generally good health and are feeling great, you can return to work the next day.

Are there any follow-up visits after implant placement?

The oral surgeon would like to assess your healing 10-14 days after placement to ensure everything is healing and there are no signs of complications.

Be sure to see your dentist every six months for routine maintenance, exams and x-rays to ensure the implants supporting your hybrid stay healthy.  Hybrids are similar to natural dentition and do not need to be removed at night or to be cleaned.
