What are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

Traditional dentures use clamps or glue to secure your tooth replacements to your smile. For a sturdier tooth replacement option, dental implants secure your new teeth with small metal screws that attach to your jaw. With All-On-4 dentures, though, your dentist will secure an entire arch of teeth using four implant locations.

When you get All-On-4 dentures, you’re investing in a natural-looking and secure-feeling smile. Also, since you only need four implants, the process is quick and easy.

The Procedure

When you visit us for All-On-4 dentures, your first step is a consultation with Dr. Martirossian. During this process, you’ll meet with your dental team to discuss your options. We’ll also examine your smile during this visit and learn about your dental history. If you decide that All-On-4 is right for you, we’ll start your treatment.

First, we’ll insert four titanium screws into your jaw. In time, your jaw will grow to accept these replacement roots just like natural dental roots. Next, we’ll attach permanent dentures to each of these anchors. These anchor teeth root the rest of your replacement teeth to your jawline and ensure a stable fit.

For full dental implants, recovery usually takes several months. However, since this treatment method only utilized four implant locations, your jaw will heal much quicker.

The Benefits of All-On-4

With All-On-4 dentures, you’ll feel and look younger, regaining your confidence along the way. Since dental implants help structure your jaw, All-On-4 diminishes sagging and sunken jaws as well. Additionally, your beautiful new tooth replacements will take years off your smile.

In addition to looking younger, you’ll feel more comfortable with All-On-4 dental implants. Losing teeth over time is normal, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have comfortable, natural tooth replacements. When you get All-On-4 implants, you can eat, sleep, talk, and laugh just like you would with natural teeth.

Another bonus is that your bone structure remains intact with All-On-4. With missing teeth or traditional dentures, your jaw will experience bone loss over time. This adds to an older, sunken appearance. However, with All-On-4, you can restore your young looks and keep them for years to come.

Long-Lasting Tooth Replacements

All-On-4 dental implants last a lifetime if you clean them properly. Unlike traditional dentures, you don’t have to remove your dentures to clean them. In fact, you can clean your dental implants by just keeping good oral hygiene.

To keep good oral hygiene, make sure you brush your new teeth twice a day. When you eat sugary or sticky foods, you might want to brush your teeth after your meal. Additionally, floss daily to remove any other sticky residue. Furthermore, ensure that your dental implants stay beautiful by visiting your dentist every six months for routine cleanings.
