Dr. Frederick Prehn started performing dental implant procedures in 1986, and they have progressed quite remarkably over the years. All-on-4 is a type of implant-supported denture that simply places four implants at the time of tooth extraction, and the teeth (or temporary denture) are placed over the implant the same day. This gives us an advantage over past systems in which we would have to remove teeth, let the areas heal, place the implants in, and let them heal. After this six-month process, you could receive your crowns over the top of your implants. This traditional treatment can still be performed under certain circumstances, and our dentist at Prehn Dental Offices will discuss your options with you. We are pleased to offer anything from a single replacement to implant snap attachments to holding a denture in place.
