Many people are frustrated and embarrassed when their traditional dentures fall out or slip during meals. All-on-4 dentures are a patented concept that prevents this from ever happening. This revolutionary alternative to traditional dentures secures the artificial teeth in place. Call our office to see if All-on-4® dental implants could be right for you.

What Is an All-on-4 Implant?

The All-on-4 implant is a permanent denture that stays fixed to your jawbone. It provides the natural look and feel of your real teeth if you’ve lost them because of decay, age, trauma or gum disease. After All-on-4 treatment, you can care for your implants like you would your real teeth.

How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?

All-on-4 implants consist of four dental implants that a dentist permanently attaches to a full bridge or denture on the lower or upper jaw. The treatment starts with light sedation so that the dentist can insert two small posts into the jawbone at the front of the mouth and two others at the back. Tilting the rear posts at a 45-degree angle allows the implants to go deeper into the jawbone than traditional implants. Because of that, bone grafts are rarely necessary.

The titanium that the posts are made of is compatible with bone, so the procedure heals quickly. While it’s healing, you receive a temporary denture. When the implants are firmly healed in place, you return to our All-on-4 dentist to have a customized denture permanently attached. It’s made at a laboratory to match the shade and shape of your natural teeth.

In some cases, however, it’s possible to get an All-on-4 implant in one visit. Ask us more about our teeth-in-a-day service.

What Happens Before and After the Procedure?

You might wonder about the All-on-4 before-and-after steps. Prior to your treatment, our dentist will perform a full examination of your mouth. If there are other concerns that need to be addressed, we will do so before the All-on-4 procedure.

Following the initial part of treatment, our dentist will give you care instructions as your jaw and gums heal from the post insertion. You must follow these instructions to prevent an infection. After the denture is attached, you should practice the same dental hygiene habits as those for your natural teeth.

How Much Is the All-on-4 Procedure?

There’s no set All-on-4 dental implants cost. However, it’s more economical than surgery for traditional implants because the treatment is less invasive and requires fewer implants. Talk to our staff about how much All-on-4 implants will cost for you.

What Is the Difference Between All-on-4 and Traditional Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants provide a full dental arch with four implants. Traditional implants, on the other hand, require up to 10 implants per arch. Also, bone grafting is necessary to replace the jawbone for many patients. All-on-4 implants remove this considerable amount of invasive surgery and the long recovery that it requires.

How Do All-on-4 and Traditional Dentures Differ?

Traditional dentures are unstable because they’re removable and sit on the gums. They can also be messy because you need adhesive to hold them in place. All-on-4 dentures, however, are stable because they’re attached to posts inserted into the jawbone. In addition, they help retain the shape of the jawline, which traditional dentures can’t do.
