Dr. Friedman and our team can use dental implants to provide you with a new set of teeth that is strong, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

What Can I Expect from Full Mouth Replacement?

In most cases, the full mouth replacement process goes something like this:

Implant-Retained Dentures

Whereas traditional dentures simply sit on top of the gums, an implant-retained denture is anchored in the jawbone via a number of strategically placed dental implants. The implants ensure that the denture is extremely stable and natural-feeling. Implant-retained dentures also deliver a bite force that is similar to that of natural teeth. Some patients choose to receive a removable implant-supported denture, which snaps onto the implants via small metal attachments. For other patients, a denture that is permanently fixed in place is the better option.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

During the All-on-4 procedure, Dr. Friedman places two implants toward the back of your mouth and two at the front of the mouth, in locations where the bone is naturally thickest. Then, he immediately attaches a provisional (temporary) denture to the implants. After your body has recovered sufficiently from the implant placement surgery, you will receive a permanent new denture that will only be removed when you visit our office for your regular dental cleanings.
