The All-on-4 procedure uses four titanium posts implanted in the jaw to permanently and securely hold a dental appliance that replaces your missing natural teeth with a full set of porcelain teeth. This method is far superior to and much more convenient than wearing dentures. An All-on-4 procedure could be the perfect solution to your dental health needs.
On All-on-4 procedure is where we utilize four dental implants and then build porcelain teeth that are permanently attached to those dental implants. Typically, a patient that’s a candidate for an All-on-4 procedure may be wearing full dentures already. Another candidate would be a patient that has advanced periodontal disease or gum disease and maybe facing the complete loss of their teeth.
The All-on-4 procedure can be performed for any of these patients in a quick, painless and comfortable fashion. One way to restore teeth with dental implants is to use a single technique where we place a single dental implant and build a single tooth on top. With the All-on-4 procedure, we can do it more conservatively by placing four implants in each jaw and then we can build a full set of teeth onto those four implants.
The All-on-4 procedure is a permanent, durable alternative to conventional dentures. The teeth are permanently secured into the jaw. You clean them just as you would your natural teeth. With conventional dentures, they may become loose. The patient has to take them out and clean them at night. It could really be a source of aggravation. So, whether you have many missing teeth or you’ve been struggling with dentures for years, the All-on-4 procedure could be the perfect solution for you.
