Replace a Full Arch of Missing Teeth With Four Implants

All-On-4 is an advanced dental implant technique designed to restore full arches of teeth with only four strategically placed implants per jaw. This procedure utilizes angled implants to maximize contact with existing bone, often eliminating the need for bone grafting. By securely anchoring a customized prosthetic dental bridge, All-On-4 provides patients with a stable, natural-looking smile, improving oral function, aesthetics, and overall quality of life.

Advantages of All-On-4 dental implants:

  • Only four implants per jaw are needed, reducing surgical time and complexity
  • Strategically utilizes available bone, often eliminating the need for bone grafting
  • Improved stability and support for the prosthetic teeth
  • Temporary teeth can be attached to the implants on the same day as the surgery
  • Requires fewer appointments compared to traditional implants
  • Lower treatment costs compared to getting single implants for each individual tooth
  • Restore optimal chewing capability and speech clarity
  • Look, feel, and function like natural teeth

All-on-4 Dental Implants Vs. Single Implants

Single implants necessitate an individual implant for each missing tooth, often leading to a higher number of implants and potentially extensive surgical procedures. Meanwhile, the All-On-4 method only requires four implants per jaw to support a full arch of teeth, significantly reducing surgical complexity, treatment time, and associated costs. Furthermore, traditional implants often require bone grafting, but the All-On-4 technique minimizes the need for bone grafting by utilizing available jawbone, which further reduces treatment complexity.

How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Work?

All-On-4 distributes implant force evenly across the jawbone. By placing two vertical implants at the front of the jaw and two tilted implants towards the back, the procedure maximizes contact with available bone, often eliminating the need for bone grafting. This allows for the support of a full dental arch without relying on individual implants for each missing tooth.

Once the implants are placed, the surrounding bone undergoes osseointegration, where the bone fuses with the implant surfaces, creating a strong foundation for the denture, which is made to resemble the patient’s natural teeth. This provides stability and mimics the natural function of tooth roots, allowing patients to comfortably eat, speak, and smile.

Aftercare Guidelines for All-on-4:

  • Brush teeth and gums gently at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Clean between teeth and around the implants using dental floss
  • Rinse with an antimicrobial mouthwash to reduce bacteria and prevent infection
  • Visit your dentist for routine examinations and professional cleanings
  • Refrain from biting down on hard or sticky foods to prevent damage to the implants
  • Smoking can increase the risk of implant failure, so quit smoking
  • Wear a mouthguard during sports activities and avoid habits like teeth-grinding
  • Eat a balanced diet rich in nutrients to promote healing and maintain overall oral health
