Exploring All-on-4 Dental Implants: A Revolutionary Solution for Major Teeth Replacement

Understanding the All-on-4 Dental Implants Procedure: A Step-by-Step Overview

All-on-4 involves inserting four titanium implants to the gum line, and then securing a set of custom-made, artificial teeth into those implants.

  • As in any dental treatment, the All-on-4 procedure begins with a comprehensive oral examination, health history and status evaluation as well as what you need and desire.
  • Once it has been determined and agreed that this treatment is what you decide upon, we will proceed with a work-up involving model work, custom-fabricated prosthesis, custom-ordered implant and restorative parts.
  • The pre-surgery portion may take 2-4 weeks.
  • If you don’t have enough bone to support new implants, you may require bone grafting which needs 6 months to heal before proceeding with implants. 
  • Once everything is in place, the surgery, implant placement, and extractions as well as the delivery of your fixed implant-retained bridge will take place in one day.
  • In most cases, you will come out with teeth that stay fixed in your mouth. There are several options for tooth material, including acrylic, porcelain and zirconia.
  • We will also review care and diet instruction in detail.

Note that immediate prosthesis is transitional while waiting for your body to integrate the implants before we fabricate a more solid long-term prosthesis in the next 6 months. We charge for the whole service and you will not have to pay any extra for the final prosthesis. During the 6-month waiting period, we will see you for follow-up, bite adjustment, etc.

We will be there for you for the whole journey as well as helping you maintain it afterwards.

Frequently Asked Questions related to All-on-4 dental implants

All-on-4 dental implants refer to a procedure where four dental implants are used as the foundation to support a full arch of teeth. This procedure is commonly used for people who have lost most or all of their teeth.

While traditional dental implants typically replace one tooth at a time, All-on-4 dental implants allow for the replacement of an entire arch of teeth using only four implants as anchors. This can be a more efficient and cost-effective solution for those needing extensive restoration.

The ideal candidate for All-on-4 dental implants is someone who has lost most or all of their teeth, or who currently has dentures. A good candidate should also have enough bone in the jaw to support the implants.

As with any dental procedure, some discomfort can be expected during the healing process. However, the procedure itself is performed under anesthesia, so you shouldn't feel anything during the surgery itself.

The healing process varies between individuals but generally, it takes several months for the implants to fully integrate with your bone. During this time, you will have a temporary prosthesis.

Caring for All-on-4 dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth: regular brushing and flossing, along with regular dental checkups. Your dentist will provide specific care instructions for your new implants.

Yes, All-on-4 dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution for tooth loss. With proper care, they can last a lifetime.

If you do not have sufficient bone density in your jaw, you may require a bone graft before you can receive All-on-4 dental implants. Your dentist will assess your situation and discuss your options with you.

The implants themselves are typically made from titanium, a material that is strong and biocompatible. The replacement teeth can be made from several materials, including acrylic, porcelain, and zirconia.

All-on-4 dental implants function like natural teeth. You can eat, speak, and smile confidently without worrying about your teeth. They do not need to be removed for cleaning and do not require any adhesives to stay in place.

Remember, every individual case is unique, and the best source of information about your specific situation is your dentist or oral surgeon.
