Why Dental Implants?
Many patients don't realize that losing a tooth leads to jawbone atrophy. When tooth roots are not stimulating your jawbone, it begins to weaken, which creates a host of problems, including reduced bite strength, additional tooth loss, and an aged-looking appearance. Because implants replace the tooth roots, they can prevent or reverse these issues.
If you choose a traditional denture or bridge to replace your natural teeth, you will likely need to have that restoration refitted or replaced in a few years. However, with proper care, dental implants can remain in place for a lifetime, and implant-supported restorations require fewer adjustments than their traditional counterparts.
Natural Function and Appearance
Traditional dentures are prone to slipping out of place. But dental implants provide a stable foundation for your restoration, allowing you to chew and enunciate normally without worrying about your dentures moving. Additionally, your implant-supported restoration will closely resemble your natural teeth.

All-on-4 Dental Implants An Expedited Solution for Complete Tooth Loss
If you are missing all of your top or bottom teeth, we may have the ideal solution for you. Dr. Schmitt can restore your smile using the innovative All-on-4® technique, in which a full denture can be attached to just four dental implants, often without the need for preparatory procedures like bone grafting.
All-on-4 Versus Traditional Implants
|Number of Implants||6 to 8||4|
|Preparation||Patients often need bone grafting||Less likely to require bone grafting|
|Time Needed Until Implants Can Support a Denture||4 to 6 Months||Can support dentures right away|
For many denture wearers, All-on-4 is a faster track to a beautifully rehabilitated smile. Because the two posterior implants are placed at an angle, they achieve greater contact with remaining bone tissue than traditional implants, which allows many patients to forgo bone grafting. Meanwhile, All-on-4 is usually able to support a full denture immediately following placement, so you can begin experiencing the benefits of an implant-supported denture right away.
Which Type of Implant Is Right for Me?
No two patients have the same needs, which is why we are glad to offer both traditional and All-on-4 implants. During a private consultation, we can determine which of these solutions will ultimately provide you with the greatest satisfaction.
In either case, Dr. Schmitt serving Altamonte Springs, FL, can help you achieve a smile that is complete, functional, and attractive. Don't suffer from the frustration of missing teeth any longer. Request your consultation online or call:

The Benefits of Dental Implants
Eat What You Want
If you have lost a tooth or have been wearing traditional dentures, you likely have struggled to eat normally. Once your implants have been placed and we've fitted your crown, bridge, or denture, you can return to eating the foods you love.
Speak ClearlyEnunciation can be difficult and frustrating when you are missing one or more teeth. Unsteady traditional dentures can also contribute to compromised speech. With dental implants, you can experience the confidence that comes with being able to speak clearly.

The Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of dental implant treatment varies widely from case to case. A number of factors contribute to the total cost of this form of dentistry, including:
- Number of implants: Obviously, replacing one tooth with only one implant costs less than using multiple implants for multiple teeth.
- Type of restoration: A full denture costs more than a single crown. You may also have the opportunity to choose from different kinds of restorative materials, and some materials cost more than others.
- Preparatory procedures: Some patients need preparatory bone grafting or other procedures, which will inflate the overall cost of treatment.
Because Schmitt Prosthodontics in Altamonte, FL, is a highly specialized practice that can provide exceptional results, our implant fees are higher than those of other dentists in the area. However, we offer multiple financing options to help you fit dental implants into your budget.
