What are All-On-Four Dental Implants?

What are All-On-4 Implants?


The All-On-4 technique was developed to to immediately replace a full arch of teeth without needing bone grafting. It is often a preferred alternative to removable dentures. As the name suggests, only four implant posts are needed to support the entire set of fixed teeth. In comparison, other more popular methods typically take six to ten implants for fixed implant bridges. Not only is placing fewer implants more cost effective, but it also doesn’t require bone grafting, which means less recovery time for the patient.

How do All-On-4 Implants Work?


To understand this remarkable technique for replacing teeth, you need to understand what a dental implant is. An implant is a small titanium screw that fits inside your jawbone and replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. Minor surgery is required to insert the implants. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a highly realistic-looking and functional prosthetic tooth.

Now, with the All-On-4 method you will not need a dental implant for each of your missing teeth. All you need is four precisely placed implants on the top of your mouth, and four on the bottom, to restore your beautiful smile. Since the implants are made of titanium, it has the ability to fuse to living bone and function as a part of it. This means that the dental implant becomes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong, long-lasting foundation for your new teeth.

Along with ensuring that your implants are permanently fixed in place, this bone fusion prevents future bone loss in the jaw. In the long run this helps to maintain a more youthful facial structure—and better oral health. The best part about the all-on-four is how quickly it can transform your life, and your smile.
