All-On-4 Dental Implants
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for replacing multiple missing teeth, Dr Aaron Ward may recommend All-On-4 dental implants. Implant-supported teeth are similar to traditional dentures in that they are used to replace multiple teeth; however, they are significantly more stable. Very often denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. In contrast, All-On-4 fixed tooth replacements are anchored using dental implants, so they will not shift or come loose.
Using implants to anchor the prosthesis also aids in preventing bone loss. Following the removal or loss of teeth, the jawbone structure begins to degenerate. With traditional dentures, bone loss will continue to occur as time goes on. In the All On Four implant treatment, our denture specialists in Ogden use implants that aid in maintaining the bone levels to avoid this problem.
The first step in anchoring your tooth replacements with dental implants is the placement of 4 implants in the bone. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your prosthesis. Four implants are placed on the top and bottom to support the prosthesis. Once the implants have been placed Dr Ward will fabricate a new set of teeth to anchor to the implants. This will allow you to have stable beautiful teeth the same day of the surgery. Our All On Four implant denture specialists in Ogden find that our patients are often surprised by how little pain or discomfort they have after this procedure. The teeth they receive the day of the surgery are anchored to the implants and allow a more comfortable quicker recovery than the transition to standard dentures. This first set of teeth are later be replaced with a second stronger set of teeth once the implants have healed properly. This provides the most comfortable and cosmetic tooth replacement with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that All-On-4 dental implants provided by Dr Ward feel and function so much more comfortable than dentures that they wish they had done it much earlier. Furthermore, the palate of the top appliance is removed and significantly less bulky than standard dentures allowing you to taste your food better.

You have changed my life forever!!!"
"I've been very fortunate in selecting Dr. Ward to do the implant surgery I had been investigating for over a year. I am still going through the process, but I couldn't be happier with what he has done so far. I received a very thorough consultation before having the work done. The process was painless and recovery was a breeze. At my follow-up visits, he takes time to answer all my questions and makes sure that any issues I'm having are resolved. I trust his work and advice completely. His assistants and office staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Ward."
