What Makes All-on-4 Different?

Dental implants are a well-established treatment option that have been in use in dentistry for many years. They provide stable, long-lasting tooth replacements and actively stimulate the health of your jawbone. Implants provide a sturdy anchor for restorations like crownsbridges, and partial and full dentures.

Generally, an implant-supported denture might require at least 6-8 implant posts. However, All-on-4 dentures use four strategically placed implants to support an entire arch of teeth. Our dentist, in collaboration with a skilled implantologist, will devise and complete effective and customize dentures paired with implant posts that distribute chewing force evenly across your entire jawbone. The result is a permanently attached and sturdy implant-supported denture that restores function to your teeth and keeps your jawbone stimulated and healthy.

Who Is a Good Candidate for All-on-4?

Many patients who are missing all the teeth on their upper, lower, or both arches can be good candidates for All-on-4. Our dental team thoroughly examines your teeth and jawbone with advanced tools and technology to determine whether All-on-4 dentures are the correct option for you. Some of the factors our team considers include:

  • Sufficient Bone Structure: Your jawbone must be sufficiently healthy and strong to support your denture on four implant posts. In cases where jawbones are weak or brittle or have lost too much density, our dentist may offer pre-treatment options like a sinus lift or bone graft to strengthen your jawbone.
  • Good Oral Health: One of the requirements is that you're in otherwise good oral health so the implant posts can bond to your jawbone and the surrounding tissues can heal properly. Issues like gum disease may preclude you from receiving All-on-4 dentures. Our dentist will consult with you about any additional health concerns that need treatment before implant placement.
  • No Smoking: Smoking and tobacco usage can increase the risk of implant failure. To ensure that your implant lasts as long as possible, we strongly encourage patients to remain tobacco-free before and after treatment.
  • Good Overall Health: Dental implant placements are surgical procedures. As such, you'll need to be in good overall health and able to undergo surgery and recover successfully to be eligible for All-on-4.

Our Dental Implant Process

No matter the treatment we're providing, our team strives to offer quality treatment and dental experiences that exceed your expectations. If you're visiting us for All-on-4 treatment, you can rely on our team to be thorough, efficient, and attentive to your needs at every step.

At our initial consultation for the All-on-4 process, we'll discuss your goals and any concerns you might have. We then perform a thorough oral exam and digital x-rays to check for things like gum disease and determine whether your jawbone is healthy enough for treatment. Once we qualify you for All-on-4, we use intraoral cameras to create detailed digital models of your mouth, which will serve as the basis for designing your dentures.

On the day of your surgery, our dentist collaborates with a trusted implantologist who places your implant posts. Once they're in place, we fit you with a temporary denture while the implant posts heal and bond to your jawbone. When the posts fully bond, we'll remove the temporary denture and place your permanent All-on-4 denture. We'll talk to you about comfort and fit and work to adjust your prosthetic to give you as natural a feel as possible.

All-on-4 FAQs

Placing dental implants is a significant procedure, and it's normal to have questions about the process. Our team is always here to talk to you about your concerns and answer your questions. Some of the most common questions we receive from patients include:

Does All-on-4 hurt?

You will be under anesthesia for the procedure, so you will likely only feel any discomfort afterward during the recovery. Typically, you can manage pain well with over-the-counter medications. If you experience moderate to severe pain that lasts more than a few days, don't hesitate to call our practice, and we can talk to you about what you can do to relieve the pain.

Everyone's mouths react to treatment differently. Some people need multiple days to recover, while others can work the next day. If you work in a job requiring rigorous physical activity, taking a few days off might be a good idea. However, what's important is knowing you may need some flexibility with your work schedule after the procedure.

Cost varies from patient to patient. When you come in for your consultation, we'll be able to give you an estimate of how much the procedure costs.
