Enjoy implant-retained dentures with all-on-four implants

At Arnold Cutler DDS, our team is dedicated to assisting men and women with tooth loss in restoring their smiles’ function, health, and appearance. Whether you are missing a single tooth or all of your teeth or are facing extractions of permanent, adult teeth, we can help. Dr. Arnold Cutler of Lakeside, California, is dedicated to ensuring patients have a wide range of restorative solutions available to help restore their smile and its overall potential. Treatment options such as implant-retained dentures may be discussed for individuals missing all of the teeth in their dental arch.

What is an implant-retained denture or full-arch dental implant, and how does it work?

Dr. Cutler describes implant-retained dentures as a type of dental prosthetic that combines the stability and durability of implants with the convenience and natural appearance of traditional dentures. It involves placing about four to six titanium implants into the jawbone, which serve as secure anchors for a custom-made denture to attach onto. The result is a comfortable, stable, and fully functional set of teeth that look natural and give patients the confidence they need and deserve!

Who is a good candidate for implant-retained dentures?

The best candidates for dentures held by dental implants (all-on-four implants) are those with sufficient bone in the jaw. This is because dental implants will stimulate bone growth when placed, which is what keeps the implants firmly in the smile. Our team will take a series of x-rays to check jaw health and available bone to determine if a patient is a good fit for this type of restorative appliance to replace missing teeth and restore function.
