A Unique Treatment Technique
The All-on-4 technique is an innovative dental implants treatment that can support a full arch denture with just four dental implant posts. These posts can be smaller than traditional counterparts and are placed strategically to make the most of your current bone tissue. This minimally invasive implant system often allows patients who may not otherwise qualify for an implant-supported denture an affordable solution for replacing missing teeth without undergoing extensive and complex surgeries. Made by Nobel Biocare®, one of the leading brands in implant dentistry, All-on-4 dental implants have been providing successful results for almost two decades for patients with substantial tooth loss.
All-on-4 Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dental Implants
Traditional implant-supported dentures require sufficient jawbone strength and the placement of six to eight dental implants, followed by an extensive healing period. Previously, patients with any type of jawbone degeneration had to undergo bone grafting before implants could be placed. But with the introduction of All-on-4, patients who may not otherwise qualify for implants, or are looking to avoid additional surgery can receive a full set of teeth without undergoing multiple procedures.
During the procedure, one of our dentists will place the posterior implants at a specialized angle on either side of the straight anterior implants to ensure accurate placement and superior strength. In some cases, we can attach your custom, implant-supported denture the same day the implants are inserted for immediate results.
Are You a Candidate?
The best candidates for All-on-4 dental implants include patients with weak jawbone structure who lacking the support necessary for traditional implants, as well as patients who seek to replace an entire arch of teeth. You should be in good oral and overall health and not smoke. To determine if you are good candidate for this procedure, our doctors will perform a series of x-rays and scans, carefully reviewing your oral health.
Compared to traditional dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants can eliminate the need for complex surgeries and deliver faster results.
Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants
Much like a traditional implant-supported restoration, an All-on-4 retained restoration can restore the aesthetics and function back to your smile, improving your speech and self-confidence. Once in place, you can enjoy all your favorite foods without fear of your restoration slipping out of place or impairing your oral health. Compared to traditional dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants can eliminate the need for complex surgeries and deliver faster results.
