Implants have revolutionized the way dentists replace missing teeth. Whether replacing just one tooth or several, implants are the all on 4 denturesclosest thing to the real thing because they replace the root as well as the crown. For denture wearers, traditional implant overdentures offer the best of both worlds by allowing patients to keep the dentures they already have, while adding stability and support, and eliminating the problem of loose, ill fitting, and uncomfortable dentures. But every service and treatment leaves room for improvement, and implants are no exception.

All on 4 Dental Implants in Fort Myers

All on 4 (AO4) dental implants make it even easier to replace a series of missing teeth - with half the number of implants. Using four implants per arch instead of the standard six to eight, AO4 implants offer all of the advantages of regular implants and bridges, with less work in a shorter amount of time. The dentists at Jay Shartzer & Associates DDS, PA in Fort Myers recommend All on 4 implants for relatively healthy individuals at different stages of tooth loss, who don't want to worry about having to remove dentures on a regular basis for cleaning and maintenance. Just like natural teeth, once AO4 implants are in, they're in.

  • Less likely to require a bone graft than traditional implants
