What are Immediate Dentures?
Immediate dentures describes the treatment options for placing a cosmetic or hybrid denture in one dental visit. They can be placed directly after the removal of your natural teeth or the placement of dental implants. Dr. Dall’Olmo is one of few Southern California implant dentists offering a unique version of the All On Four procedure that is more cost-effective for patients. Using advanced technology used widely in Europe, Dr. Dall’Olmo is able to securely place your immediate denture without the need for replacing it with a final restoration within a few weeks.
Factors Affecting the Cost of All On Four
To understand the benefits of this procedure it is necessary to be aware of the significant factors affecting the overall cost of placing an immediate denture and the All On Four process. These include:
- Lab costs: a typical All On Four process includes two restorations: a temporary placed on treatment day and a higher-quality (often porcelain-based) final restoration placed several weeks later. This results in relatively high dental lab costs as part of the overall treatment plan and cost.
- Complications: a high percentage of patients receiving a temporary denture experience some complications such as breakage or the development of other concerns due to the lower quality of the temporary restoration. This can result in more visits to the dentist’s office and increased costs.
Affordable Teeth in One Day
Dr. Dall’Olmo can provide solutions for these two major factors affecting the cost of the placement of a denture using All On Four. He is able to reduce both lab and dental visit costs by placing an immediate denture that is more durable and stable than a temporary, but not as costly as the typical final restoration.
Advanced digital diagnostics and treatment planning set the stage for a successful placement of your implant-supported denture in one visit to our Santa Monica dentist office. Dr. Dall’Olmo has the skill and experience to provide an exceptional outcome that restores your quality of life within a more affordable budget.
The process includes:
- Surgical implantation of titanium posts to support a retaining bar for a permanent hybrid denture.
- Design and fabrication of a custom cosmetic denture is done mostly in office to save time and money.
- Attachment of your denture before leaving the office to restore function and aesthetics the same day.
While the gums and soft tissues heal in the coming months, patients are able to start enjoying the benefits of a stable and secure new smile right away.
What is the denture made of?
Dr. Dall’Olmo will work with a dental lab to create a hybrid denture that is comprised of metal and composite materials for a durable restoration. With the ability to make final adjustments in the office and attach the new denture immediately, this procedure is more cost-effective.
How long does this type of denture last?
Patients can expect this high-quality denture to last 5-10 years, depending on oral health and lifestyle habits. At routine dental care visits, we will monitor the condition of the denture and your soft tissues to ensure that your oral health is stable.
