Screw in Fixed Teeth
Dr. Eric Johnson

The most stable implant solution
Screw in teeth use dental implants to anchor the prosthetic teeth in your mouth so they do not fall out. These are a very popular option because they are very stable and cannot be removed without going to the dentist. These are also often called "all on 4", "fixed", "implant supported", or "hybrid".
This option is very popular because allows patients to taste food better since the palate of the upper denture can be removed. This is also great for patients who have a sensitive gag reflex.
Dental implants are small screws that heal in your jawbone for around 3-4 months. During this time patients wear a screwed in temporary healing prosthetic. After the implants heal, they are tested to ensure they are tight and will last long, then they are attached to your new set of custom zirconia teeth which are extremely strong and beautiful!
