Dentures have long been the go-to solution for tooth loss. While their popularity hasn’t changed much through the decades, the actual appliances have changed and improved dramatically. Implants represent the greatest leap forward in denture technology. Tyrone Family Dentistry is proud to offer our patients a variety of options, including the popular All-on-4 procedure.
If you have lost, or you are about to lose, all of your teeth All-on-4 implant dentures may be the ideal solution. As the name implies, the procedure only involves four dental implants to hold a full set of prosthetic teeth.
Teeth in a day – A fixed denture can be placed the same day as the implant surgery.
Faster overall treatment time – The process is streamlined with optimal placement and implant angle. This reduces the number of surgeries, and often eliminates the need for bone grafting.
Economical – Fewer implants and fewer surgeries mean a lower overall cost.
Improved stability – Tilted positioning of posterior implants increases bone contact for a more secure hold.
Immediate implants – If you have sufficient bone, the implants may be placed the same day that teeth are extracted.
Individual tooth – If you lost just one tooth, it can be replaced by a single implant and a porcelain crown.
Implant bridge – For replacement of multiple teeth, a customized bridge unit can be placed on two or more implants.
Preliminary bone grafting – If you have suffered significant bone loss, we may need to perform a graft prior to implant placement.
Bone grafting is a minor oral surgery, which is performed here in our office.
An implant is essentially a synthetic tooth root. It is a small structure, usually made of titanium, which is implanted in the bone. Specially made crowns, bridges, or dentures are attached to the implants. The type of implant and restoration depends on your needs and preferences.
Despite our best efforts, we can’t always avoid accidents and unexpected problems. We understand, and we strive to see dental emergencies as soon as possible. Whether you are an established patient, or you’ve never been to our office, we will try to see you the same day and provide fast relief.

Keep any broken pieces or knocked out teeth, as well as any fillings, crowns or other restorations that fell off. Rinse gently in tepid water, being careful not to disturb any tissue that is still attached.
Rinse your mouth with tepid saltwater.
If a tooth was knocked out place it in a clean container and cover it with milk. This preserves viability, increasing the chances of reattachment.
Use clove oil or dental numbing gel for topical pain relief. Don’t hold pills against the gums or use external salves in the mouth.
Apply slight pressure using sterile cotton or gauze to control bleeding.
Use an ice pack against the face to ease swelling.
Consume only room temperature liquids and soft foods. If you need to chew, use the other side of your mouth.
Preparedness and good dental first aid practices can make a huge difference in your comfort while you are waiting to see a dentist, as well as the chances of saving a damaged tooth.
