All-on-4® Treatment Concept

The All-on-4 treatment concept is a permanently fixed denture system. Whether you are new to dentures, or have been wearing them for years, we can upgrade your experience. Using implants, we can stabilize your denture to stay firm and constant in your mouth. The All-on-4 implant system is an innovative solution for individuals who need dentures that work and feel like your natural teeth.

The All-On-4 Difference

Traditional dentures provide limited support and function. Patients often find them equally helpful and frustrating. We can secure your denture, preventing rocking, shifting and coming loose, with dental implants.

Dental implants have changed the way we use dentures. Patients can now have their dentures stabilized through a fixed but removable system including the bar overdenture or a fixed ball overdenture. Additionally we offer the All-on-4 system which is a non-removable fixed denture.

A dental implant is a metal or ceramic post that we can surgically embed in the jawbone for permanent retention. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept uses between four and six implants that are placed through the denture and into the bone. In fact, this system uses implants that are designed to be longer, so that thicker bone is captured for a very firm, stable hold.

Am I Eligible for All-on-4?

The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. We often do approve our older or medically fragile patients for surgery as long as they are able to heal appropriately. Being able to heal in a moderate amount of time is an important criteria. Patients who smoke, have uncontrolled diabetes, taking certain medications or are currently undergoing cancer treatment, may need to make some adjustments before surgery, we are happy to discuss this with your personal physician if needed.

Many implant procedures require a bone graft, but because of the length and placement of the implants, it is generally not required before the All-on-4 treatment. This includes patients who have already been wearing their dentures for years.

Benefits of All-on-4

Having your denture secured using the All-on-4® Treatment Concept comes with benefits that will greatly increase your overall happiness, including:
•  Permanent: Your denture is staying right where it belongs, no shifting, no rocking, no slipping.
•  No Bone Graft: A bone graft is a simple procedure, but it takes months to grow new bone. The All-on-4 often doesn’t require this step, saving you months of wait.
•  Realistic: Your denture will work and feel so natural that with time, patients often forget they have dentures at all.
•  Increased Function: Following a period of healing, you’ll be able to eat a wider range of foods without the fear of your denture coming loose.
•  Increased Speech: A common downside of dentures is losing some sounds or the ability to speak properly. Because your denture stays in place, your speech will quickly become much more like your natural style.
