How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?

The All-on-4 procedure involves carefully placing four dental implant posts into specific parts of your jaw so that they can act as artificial tooth roots. The goal is to take advantage of the thickest parts of the jawbone. To that end, the two implants placed near the back of your mouth will be inserted at a specific angle. The implant posts will ultimately be used to secure a personalized denture, thus letting you enjoy the benefits of a full set of teeth once again.

Am I a Candidate for All-on-4 Implants?

Many people who would be unable to have traditional dental implants placed due to a lack of bone density can still be candidates for All-on-4 even without bone grafting. This is thanks to the way that the implants are strategically placed in your jaw for the All-on-4 procedure. Of course, before moving forward with the dental implant process, we will need to examine your mouth to make sure you aren’t suffering from gum disease or other oral health issues.

Benefits of All-on-4 Implants

When an entire arch of teeth has been lost, you do have the option of re-completing your smile with traditional dentures. However, there are several advantages to getting All-on-4 dental implants instead:

  • All-on-4 can keep your new teeth permanently anchored in place, allowing you to brush and floss like you normally would.
  • You’ll be much more confident thanks to a new smile that feels as natural as it looks.
  • With the additional bite force provided by the dental implants, you won’t have to worry about diet limitations.
  • Tooth loss often leads to deterioration of the jawbone, but the stimulation that dental implants provide can prevent this from happening.

All-On-4 vs. Traditional Implants

With traditional dental implant methods, as many as eight implant posts may be needed to replace an entire row of teeth. All-on-4 only requires four posts, making it a less invasive option. On top of that, All-on-4 can potentially eliminate the need for bone grafting, thus taking months off your treatment plan. Finally, with All-on-4, there’s a good chance that a denture can be placed on the same day as your implant surgery, thus letting you enjoy the benefits of new teeth sooner.
