If you are missing all of your teeth along an arch, you basically have two ways to replace them: a traditional denture or an implant-supported prosthesis. We often recommend dental implants because of the superior longevity, stability, and oral health benefits they provide. Moreover, the process for restoring a smile with implants isn’t always as complex or time-consuming as many patients believe. Thanks to the patented All-on-4 technique, you may be able to regain all of your teeth in a single day!
At a single appointment, just four dental implants are placed at specific angles along the jawbone, and then they are topped with a temporary full denture. The location of the implant posts enables them to provide maximum stability for the new teeth, helping patients recover their smile much faster compared to other methods.
The ideal candidates for All-on-4 dental implants:
Even if you believe you are not an “ideal” candidate for All-on-4, it’s still worth your time to visit our team for a FREE consultation! After we thoroughly examine your mouth and talk to you about your goals and preferences, we’ll recommend the treatment that we believe is the best fit for your circumstances.
Some of the most outstanding benefits of All-on-4 dental implants include:
A normal implant process usually involves two surgeries. First, there is the placement surgery. Then, a few months later, there is another minor procedure wherein the dentist exposes the implants and attaches abutments to them (the abutments connect the implants to the final restoration). Since All-on-4 provides you with provisional teeth on the day of your first surgery, no second surgery is necessary.
