Patients who need to replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth can now receive All On 4 implants. Four implants will be placed, and then a full arch (upper or lower) of teeth is attached, giving the procedure its name. (WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW)
Why choose All On 4?
Modern implant-based dentistry has provided a solution to the ‘toothless’ client that traditional dentures have never been able to deliver – immediate functionality with an increased quality of life.
This is accomplished through a row of teeth held permanently in place by four dental implants (the “All On 4” Procedure) which improves the functional security that a client with traditional dentures is likely to be missing. It also preserves bone within the jaw, which normally decreases over time without teeth.
The “All On 4” procedure eliminates the day-to-day frustrations and discomforts of dentures, and clients can once again enjoy the dietary freedom of those with natural teeth. It is the most sophisticated solution there is to tooth loss.
Traditional approaches to restoring a full arch of teeth usually involved bone grafts, six or more implants, and as many as 18 months of treatment. That meant that a patient often would be without any teeth or with ill-fitting temporary dentures for more than a year.
With the All On 4 Dental Implant Procedure, the client has one or two visits to our office to allow our team to gather information for a treatment plan (e.g., bone scans, x-rays, impressions, photos). Following this complimentary consultation, the client is scheduled for surgery implantation and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted during the same appointment (even when extractions are necessary).
The client will be required to return for occasional check-ups over the next several weeks and months. After almost six months, when the gums have fully healed and the implants are fused to the natural bone, our team will take new impressions of the client’s mouth and prepare their final, stronger, permanent set of teeth adjusted to a perfect fit and bite. This helps ensure the longest life of the teeth, and provide maximum support, beauty, and function to the client!
