The All-on-4 Dental Implants Procedure uses four dental implants, with the back dental implants angulated to take maximum advantage of existing bone. Special dental implants also were developed that could support the immediate fitting of replacement teeth. This treatment is attractive to those with dentures or in need of full upper and/or lower restorations.
With the All-on-4 Dental Implants Procedure, qualified patients receive just four dental implants and a full set of new replacement teeth in just one appointment without bone grafts! The real appeal is how quickly permanent implants can be placed so that patients can leave the same day with fixed, non-removable replacement teeth.
Traditional approaches to restoring a full arch of teeth usually involved bone grafts, six or more dental implants, and as many as 18 months of treatment. That meant that a patient often would be without any teeth, or with ill-fitting temporary dentures for more than a year. All-on-4 Dental Implants patients always leave with teeth!
