We have written many times about the benefits of implant-supported dentures:
- They restore your ability to eat what you want.
- They let you speak naturally.
- They keep your dentures secure in your mouth without adhesives.
- They give you back a natural-looking smile.
How could you make this restorative option even better? One way would be to get your new teeth in less time. With the All-on-4® implants procedure, it’s possible to get your implants and a set of dentures during the same appointment at our Woodbury, MN dental office.

Feel Like You Have Real Teeth
Living without teeth isn’t fun. Living with traditional dentures can be difficult, too. At least, that’s what many of our patients have told us.
We can understand why they feel this way. When you don’t have teeth, your diet is limited, to put it mildly. Dentures help a little, but not as much as many people think they will.
Using a denture adhesive can keep your teeth a little more secure, but there’s a limit. More adhesive won’t do much beyond affecting the taste of your food.
Even if you get dentures, they can and will slide around from time to time. Whether you are eating or you are speaking, this can be frustrating and maybe a little embarrassing.
By getting dental implants, you are replacing the roots of your lost teeth. Implants are placed directly in your jawbone, and your implants anchor your dentures so they don’t move around. This is why you can feel confident about eating what you want to eat and saying what you want to say.
Get Your New Teeth Faster
Dr. Wilhelm has replaced countless teeth in his career as a prosthodontist (a dentist who specializes in restoring and replacing teeth). That includes placing thousands of dental implants.
He’s also learned one of the most advanced implant placement procedures, called All-on-4. As the name suggests, he can place just four implants to support and secure a full set of dentures for you. Because these implants are placed to provide the maximum benefits for our patients, they also allow us to attach a set of dentures the same day that you get your implants. (With other implants placements, you may need to wait until your jaw is fully healed before your dentures are placed.)
With All-on-4, you can leave our office on the day of your procedure with a natural-looking smile. As you heal, you will be able to eat more foods. In time, you will be ready for your permanent dentures that you can feel confident will remain securely in position.
Restore What You’ve Been Missing
Whether you have no teet or you have regular dentures, All-on-4 implants from our office in Woodbury, MN can get more than just your smile back on track. Eat what you want when you want, too.
