All-On-4 dental implants are more stable and secure than standard dentures.

The All-On-4 dental implant is an option for patients who need numerous teeth replaced, or even a whole upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure is a relatively new technique in dentistry and allows patients to receive an entire arch of prosthetic teeth in a single appointment with a surgeon. By using just 4 dental implants instead of one implant per tooth, the procedure is minimally invasive and can replace an entire set of teeth without the need for repeat surgical visits.

About All-On-4 Dental Implants

The All-On-4 treatment is used to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth. The procedure creates a permanent prosthesis by using 4 dental implants which act as an anchor for a bridge or overdenture of 12 to 14 teeth. All-On-4 dental implants can replace both damaged and missing teeth and provide a long-term, permanent alternative to dentures.

About the All-On-4 Procedure

Four screws are placed into the jawbone and gums and left to heal sufficiently, before the implant bridge can be secured in place. Once implanted, the bridge will never need to be removed and will resemble the appearance of your natural teeth.

As with all dental implants, All-On-4 dental implants are placed during an outpatient surgical procedure in Auburn Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery’s office. Most patients will want to take advantage of some sort of sedation for this procedure, in addition to the local anesthetic that will be used. Learn more about Sedation Dentistry – or “Sleep Dentistry” – here.

Before leaving Auburn Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery’s office, the patient is fitted with the prosthetic arch. After the implants have fully integrated with the bone, the patient may return to receive a second, stronger denture.

In the days immediately following the All-On-4 placement procedure, patients should use common sense to determine what they can and cannot do to avoid complications and problems with the implants. Maintain a soft diet for a few weeks and be gentle with your oral hygiene routine (but still keep up with it to minimize the presence of potentially infection-causing bacteria!).

In addition to the short treatment timeframe, All-On-4 dental implants have a number of advantages over conventional dentures. All-On-4 implants are more stable and secure, greatly reducing the jawbone resorption that occurs with standard dentures, which have no root-like structure to anchor the bone. An implant-supported arch will not slide out of place, and it’s more effective at chewing so patients can maintain a varied diet.

If you think the All-On-4 solution is right for you, schedule a complimentary consultation today with Auburn Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
