Anti-Aging Dentistry

Our goal is always to provide each of our patients with a healthy smile that is free from disease and decay. However, simply having a healthy smile is not always enough. Many of our patients also want a beautiful smile that they can be proud to show off. A brighter, straighter, and more youthful smile can boost your self-esteem and benefit all aspects of your life.


As you age, your teeth naturally yellow and shift in the mouth. What were once beautifully straight and white teeth may now be crooked, worn down, broken and dull. Grinding can make the teeth smaller and ill fitting dentures can make the face look sunken in. However, these effects of aging do not have to be permanent!

Anti-aging Dentistry focuses on the use of Cosmetic Dentistry to reduce the signs of aging without the surgery required for a facelift. The use of invisible aligners, dental implants, whitening, dentures, and healthier gums are just a few of the treatment options we employ to make your smile look more youthful.

During your consultation, the doctor will take into account every aspect of your face, not just your smile. The treatment plan the doctor presents will not only improve your smile but can also smooth the wrinkles around your mouth, fill out the jawline, and balance the appearance of your smile. Anti-aging dentistry can instantly remove 5-10 years off of your appearance!

All-On-4 Implant Supported Dentures

All-on-4 Denture Implants are an ideal solution for San Diego dental patients who have an insufficient amount of bone. Besides using just four implants, All-on-4 denture implants maximize existing bone and do not typically require bone grafting, making them a good fit for patients with less bone density.


All-on-4 Procedure
Before the treatment begins, Dr. Valentina Obradovic numbs the area to prevent patients from feeling any discomfort or pain during the procedure. She then places four denture implants in areas where the bone is most voluminous. Once the implants are placed, Dr. Obradovic creates a framework for a temporary set of teeth using a new or existing denture.

Full integration between the bone and implant usually takes three to four months. At this juncture, Dr. Obradovic will replace the temporary teeth with a new, custom-made, permanent set that is anchored into place.

Advantages of All-on-4 Denture Implants
• Tested. All-on-4 denture implants have been used for over a decade.
• High success rate. At the four year follow-up, All-on-4 has a 98.5 percent success rate.
• Affordable. All-on-4 denture implants are less costly than single implant procedures.
• Easy maintenance. All-on-4 denture implants do not have removable appliances, making for easy care and maintenance.
• Balance. All-on-4 denture implants balance and stabilize bone level.
• Greater confidence. A beautiful smile can make you feel more confident and boost your self-esteem.
• Quality of life. With All-on-4 denture implants, you can enjoy all of your favorite foods once again.

Dr. Obradovic offers All-on-4 denture implants and a variety of other treatments at Adriatic Dental, a full-service San Diego Dental Practice.
