What is the All on Four Dental Procedure?

If you need to replace missing teeth, but would rather not have to deal with dentures, All on Four may be the right choice for you.  All on Four is an alternative teeth replacement option that has gained immense popularity in recent years, because it is more comfortable and convenient than dentures.

What is the All on Four Dental Procedure?

All on Four is an advanced dental implant technique, in which 4 implants are used to provide support for a full arch of replacement teeth.  The implants are precisely placed on the upper or lower jaw as required, and provide the foundation for the dental arch.  The All on Four procedure is done in one day, so patients are able to go home with a full set of temporary teeth.

The implants are inserted during an in-office procedure that is typically done under twilight anesthesia.  Once the implants heal and form a stable bond with the bones, the temporary teeth are replaced with permanent teeth (learn more).

Benefits of All on Four Dental procedure

The All on Four procedure minimizes the number of implants needed for securing fixed bridges, which makes it a more cost effective approach.  Unlike dentures, All on Four keep the teeth securely in place so there is no slipping or shifting, and they don’t have to be taken out for brushing and flossing.  In addition, the results look and feel natural.

If you are thinking about having All on Four teeth replacement, be sure to choose a dentist that has significant experience performing the procedure.
