All-on-4 implants is a state-of-the-art system that secures an entire arch of dentures with just four strategically placed dental implants. The All-on-4 system is a more comfortable method for holding your dentures in place that also provides benefits to your oral health.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into your jaw. They’re made of titanium, which your body doesn’t recognize as a foreign substance.
This enables them to fuse with your jawbone as you heal from the surgery and create a sturdy foundation for a restoration, like a crown, bridge, or dentures.
The All-on-4 system supports an entire arch of dentures with four strategically placed implants.
Two implants are placed in the interior of your mouth, while the other two are positioned at a 45º angle in your posterior, utilizing more of your available bone and eliminating the need for bone grafts.
All-on-4 implants are connected to your jawbone, unlike traditional dentures, which are held in place by suction or adhesive. This setup is closer to the natural structure of your mouth, which makes your All-on-4 implants more feel more comfortable and natural.
Dental implants in general also carry a significant oral health benefit by providing stimulation to your jawbone.
This stimulation to your bone tissue prevents the jawbone deterioration that’s typical in most denture patients and effectively prevents your facial muscles from caving in and giving you a “sunken-in” appearance.
First, your dentist determines the exact placement of your implants using X-rays or a CT scan. Once they’ve decided on the location, they make a small incision in your gum, drill a tiny hole in your jawbone, and insert your implant.
They stitch you up and send you home to heal, while your implant fuses with your jawbone over the next few months.
Once your implant has fused, you come back to affix your abutment, which is a tiny post that sticks up out of your gumline and attaches to your dentures.
With the abutment in place, your dentist takes an impression of your mouth that’s sent to a lab where your dentures are designed to attach comfortably and securely to your implants.
