If you are in the market for dentures to replace your missing teeth or you already have a full arch that you are having issues with, you should know about all-on-four dental implants.

Even if you aren’t already a denture wearer, you are probably well aware of one of the significant drawbacks of dentures: slippage. When your dentures slip and move, this can make eating and speak more difficult.

Patients who have opted for all-on-four dental implants report no slippage problems once they have gone through the healing process. Not only is this a massive boost to their confidence, but it means they can enjoy their favorite foods without worry. Your Yuma, AZ, dentist Dr. Sam Carroll can tell you that there are other advantages to all-on-four dental implants, as well.

The All-On-Four Dental Implants Procedure

After you come in for a consultation with Dr. Carroll, he will work on a treatment plan for you. If you still need to have teeth removed, that will be the first step.

Next, you will undergo a surgical procedure to place four implants into the appropriate areas of your mouth. A set of prosthetic teeth will be put immediately until your mouth fully healed, and the implants are fully integrated.

When healing is complete, you will get your final set of teeth.

Patients Rave about All-On-Four Dental Implants

Patients who get all-on-four dental implants are so pleased with them; they usually wonder why they waited so long to get them! Because the dentures are attached to stable, permanent dental implants, patients can eat and speak with confidence. There are none of the worries of slipping or clicking noises that patients have with traditional dentures.

Patients are thrilled when the healing process is complete, and they can once again eat their favorite foods. They also enjoy a massive boost of confidence with their natural-looking, beautiful smile.

All-On-Four Dental Implants Are Better Than Similar Procedures

Most patients who come to Dr. Carroll looking for an improvement in the form and function of their teeth are excited to learn about all-on-four dental implants. In a relatively short amount of time, patients can enjoy a smile that looks and feels natural. In fact, once the jaw has healed, the dental implants are so stable that the dentures attached to them are often stronger than the teeth they replaced!

All-on-four dental implants use a specific procedure that makes better use of available jawbone—even if some deterioration of the bone has taken place. Implants placed at a 45-degree angle, so the sinus cavity not impacted. It means that a bone graft is generally not necessary.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
