All On 4 Dental Implants

All on 4 dental implants is a type of implantsupported fullarch restoration for the replacement of a full set of teeth or both the upper and lower arches.

WHAT ARE ALL ON 4 IMPLANTS?

All-on-4 technology refers to placing four strategically planned implants to keep a denture in place. This prevents the need for more than just four implants to be used and all of the implants can be placed in one or two appointments. The procedure helps your denture to fit more securely and prevents the need for creams, adhesive strips and gels. The procedure is safe, easy and most implants heal fully in about six months.

 

WHY WOULD ALL ON 4 IMPLANTS BE NEEDED?

You may want or even need all-on-4 implants if your current prosthesis is constantly slipping and falling out. Likewise, your prosthetic appliance might be uncomfortable or ill-fitting, causing you to feel pain or discomfort whenever you put it in. The implants easily keep the denture in place so that it won’t slip or budge. This allows for a more natural and realistic-looking smile.

 
Four dental implants refer to a procedure that replaces all of the teeth in either the upper or lower arch of the mouth.

WHO'S A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR ALL ON 4 IMPLANTS?

The majority of patients who want all-on-4 implants can safely have the procedure done. Keep in mind that implants rely on healthy underlying bone mass to bond fully. If you have bone loss, we may suggest a bone grafting before the surgery can be done. We will go over your health and medical history before placing implants and you should be healthy enough to undergo the procedure and heal from it.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE FOR ALL ON 4 IMPLANTS?

The first step is discussing your sedative options so that we can provide you with the comfortable experience you expect. We then administer this sedation and begin the surgery. Small incisions are made through the gums and the titanium implant posts are inserted deep into the bone. The sutures may be sutured to close the area and help promote proper healing. Over the course of about three to six months, your implants will naturally begin to fuse with the surrounding bone and become secure, stable and virtually permanent. You’ll then come in and have a specially made denture for you after taking impressions. We’ll show you how to remove and place the dentures as needed throughout the day.
