Losing your teeth can be detrimental to your oral hygiene, self-confidence, appearance, and overall health. Missing teeth means no stimulation for your mouth and jawbone, which is essential for proper oral health. Bone density will decrease and leave your mouth sore and without the strength it needs. This can also stop people from flashing their smile, worried about their appearance to others. Dentures are a sought-out solution for this problem, but there is another option: All-on-4. Downtown Dental, office to Dr. Don Mungcal and his prestigious team of experts, offers this incredible advancement in denture treatment.

What is All on 4?

Unlike regular dentures, which can be taken out and require adhesive to fit into the mouth, All-on-4 are permanent dentures that stay in the mouth at all times. These permanent teeth replacement feel natural, and require brushing and cleaning, just like normal teeth. They do not press down on your gums, are significantly more comfortable than regular dentures, and allow you to bite down with more force, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods again. All-on-4 also prevents bone deterioration and restores your facial features.

Does it Require Surgery?

After an initial consultation with our doctor, we will set up a surgery date for you. When you arrive, we will make sure you are sedated and comfortable. To insert and secure the permanent dentures into your mouth, we will insert four implants, which will be attached to your jawbone. This will keep the prosthetic arches in place. The replacement teeth are then fixed to the implants and secured into position. Each arch will take about 2.5 hours to complete, but when we are finished with the procedure, you will walk away with a lovely, gorgeous smile that you will want to show off to everyone.

Ready for the Next Step?

We understand that aging, injury, gum disease, and other factors can take a toll. Losing your teeth does not have to be the end of your smile. Contact us today and set up a consultation to see if All-on-4 is right for you. We are here to give beautiful smiles to everyone on Los Angeles, CA, Glendale, Pasadena, and all of the neighboring communities.

Success Stories

I actually owe a debt to Downtown Dental because they caught my oral cancer. I went to them because I had a bump on my tongue and thankfully they ordered a biopsy immediately (same day). The staff has been wonderful to me (even sending me a get well card during my cancer treatment). They do great work - the crowns are made in the office to save you time - and they are very upfront on pricing. You know exactly what you will pay. They are also very flexible on appointments. And they validate parking! They also have taken COVID precautions very seriously. Very professional and well-organized. Highly recommend them.

Here at downtown Dental, we take oral health and cancer screenings very serious. This month is November and it's the month of oral health cancer awareness and screenings. Every patient we examined thoroughly, we look and we check their lips, tongue and we check for any abnormalities or bumps. At home you should also check to make sure that everything looks okayLeava is going to demonstrate what in oral health cancer screening is and what we examine. So, we first start off by checking all the lips. We make sure that the lips look healthy and that we palpate them, which is touching them and making sure that there's nothing anormal. Then we go into the mucosa and check the cheeks. We're going to look and check the hard palate as well as the soft palate. This might tickle a little. We checked the posterior of the tongue. Do you, Viola, go ahead and say, aaaaaa. We check the lateral sides of the tongue. Go ahead and sit your tongue showed up great. And we also check the floor of the mouth. Get the tongue to the roof of your mouth. Good all clear. Oral cancer is especially important to check the patients who are smokers, alcohol drinkers and we thank you for watching the video.
