Are All-4-One Dental Implants Right for You?
When it comes to replacing a full arch of missing teeth, implant dentures are the superior solution. However, if you also suffer from jaw bone loss, you may not qualify for traditional dental implants. Dental implants require a sufficient amount of bone structure to secure the implant posts and successfully anchor your denture. Therefore, if you have poor bone density or short bone height, you may be told that a bone grafting procedure is necessary before getting implants. This only adds to the already lengthy time, cost and recovery of getting traditional implants.
if you are suffering from tooth loss and do not qualify for traditional dental implants, All-on-4® can be the perfect alternative. Using this advanced technique, we can place four dental implants to support an entire dental arch (upper or lower). The All-on-4 system allows patients to take advantage of the unparalleled denture support, improved oral health and minimal daily maintenance that implant dentures offer.
How Does All-on-4 Work?
All-On-4 is a less invasive and more effective approach to conventional implant-supported dentures, especially when bone grafting is required. Instead of six to eight dental implants, we can replace a full dental arch using only four implant posts. To accommodate patients with less jaw bone structure, the All-On-4 implants are designed with longer posts and can be strategically placed at an angle into areas of the jaw where the strongest and healthiest bone exists. In result, patients can achieve full confidence in their implant-supported denture with this method, without having to undergo bone grafting surgery and the surgical placement of additional implants. For some patients, we can even provide the All-On-4 implants with same-day results!

- Good overall health
