The All-On-4® procedure is a unique implant solution that allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 implants as “anchors” for the full restoration. This technique offers many advantages over traditional dentures.
Dental implant placement can help alleviate the sunken look that can occur with bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth in the area around the implant. This process is called osseointegration and can also help prevent future bone loss.
With the All-On-4® solution, there is no plate covering the roof of the mouth, so speaking and eating are more natural and comfortable than with a traditional denture.
Easy to care for, this type of restoration can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors. Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures. The All-On-4® implant procedure can often be placed in one office visit, reducing both overall cost and healing time for the patient.
