Many times when trying to restore teeth and jaws to normal function, implants are the best option. It stands to reason that “more is better” in that the more implants in place, the more stability the restorations have. However, costs can get out of control. Fees for implants increase the more that are used, and sometimes anatomy requires extra surgeries. If sinuses are large, perhaps a lift will be needed. If nerves track close to the surface, then they must be avoided or moved. All-on-four is an approach that uses angled implants to allow fewer implants placed and a significant savings.
Dr Lance Timmerman DMD, a Seattle implant dentist, uses software from Nobel Biocare, NobelClinician, to be certain that when he places dental implants they are precisely where they need to be. Precision is VERY important with dental implants. If the dental implant is in the wrong place, there is a risk that they won’t osseointegrate (fuse to the bone), sever the nerve, fall out or be impossible to restore.
With CAD/CAM precision, dental implants can be exactly where they need to be. Since Dr Timmerman is also a restorative dentist you can be sure that he can actually place a crown or denture on the implants. The same cannot always be said when another doctor places the implants, as many surgeons are only concerned with getting the implant into the bone and are not giving thought to the final restoration.
If you would like dental implants and want to be sure of the most precise placement, call Dr Lance Timmerman DMD for a consultation. He is a leading Seattle implant dentist. Call us to ask Dr Lance Timmerman DMD what can be done for YOU! Learn more about all on four hybrid dentures.
