Are you tired of wearing dentures that slip and click but do not have enough bone density to switch to dental implants? All-on-4® dental implants in St. Petersburg, FL with Dr. Bruce Crawford are designed for traditional denture wearing patients just like you.
• Work with low bone density (no bone grafting)
• Available for immediate use
• Make dentures permanent and more functional
• Fast recovery
• High success rate
Many patients can now enjoy the benefits of dental implants with All-on-4® implant supported dentures from St. Petersburg’s top rated Periodontist, Dr. Bruce Crawford. This dental implant technology was specifically engineered to maximize the bone that is present. With the use of just four dental implants and a customized denture, patients can enjoy a more stable, more functional, and permanent dental appliance. All-on-4® has a 98.5 percent success rate at the four year follow-up, making this technique a winner for almost anyone who wants more freedom and choice.
Unlike standard implant surgery, in which dental implants are installed at each missing tooth site and sometimes requires bone grafting beforehand, the All-on-4™ technique allows Dr. Crawford to place four implants wherever there is still enough bone left to accommodate them. Once those regions are identified and populated, Dr. Crawford will order a customized denture designed to work in tandem with the implants for a permanent and highly successful result.
During your initial office visit at Crawford Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics, a temporary denture or your existing one, will be fixed for immediate use while the implants integrate with your jaw, which usually requires three to six months. After that, Dr. Crawford will replace the temporary denture with the All-on-4® dental implants and your smile will be complete! No more slips, no clicks, and no food restrictions. Plus, your new dental implants, which function like real tooth roots, will help to prevent further bone loss.
