All on 4 Implants

Image of an older couple smiling. The absence of teeth can be not only embarrassing but also a source of frustration, posing risks to your oral health. Historically, various methods such as removable dentures and dental implants have been used to replace missing teeth. However, when it comes to replacing an entire set of teeth, the options can become more complex. Among the most effective, rapid, and durable teeth replacement solutions available today are All-on-4 dental implants.

Discover the All-On-4® Treatment Concept

At Bijan Family Dental Practice, we firmly believe in providing a wide range of high-quality dental options to everyone. That's why we offer dental implants and innovative solutions like the All-On-4® Treatment Concept. All-On-4® offers you the opportunity to replace your dentures with permanent dentures supported by dental implants, giving you a natural-looking and functioning set of teeth. No more worries about removing your dentures at night, special adhesives or cleaning supplies, or dietary restrictions. All on 4 dental implants offer you peace of mind.

What Is the All-On-4® Treatment Concept?

All-On-4® is a comprehensive tooth replacement concept designed for fully edentulous (without teeth) patients. Similar to dentures, the All on 4 enables you to eat, speak, and appear as if you have a full set of natural teeth. As the name suggests, this revolutionary approach involves supporting permanent dentures with just four dental implants per arch. There are two on the upper arch and two on the lower arch of your mouth. With only four dental implants, you can regain control over your eating habits and appearance. Traditional dental implants usually require at least six to eight implant posts.

How All-On-4 Works

All-On-4 stands out as the optimal choice for addressing the loss of a full set of teeth. This treatment involves securing four implant screws or posts directly into the jawbone. Two of these implants are vertically positioned in the front teeth area, while the remaining two are placed in the back teeth or molars at a slightly tilted angle, ensuring the dentures' strength and stability.

Benefits for Your Health

Tooth loss can have significant health implications, and even traditional dentures offer limited health benefits. The issue arises from the absence of natural tooth roots. Natural teeth consist of a root below the gumline in the jawbone, and a crown which is the visible part of the tooth. When a tooth is lost, it ceases to stimulate the jawbone, leading to bone recession over time. This bone loss occurs because the bone no longer receives the necessary stimulation to stay healthy. While dentures address the absence of tooth crowns, they do not replace the missing tooth roots.

With the All-On-4® Treatment Concept, we strategically place dental implants in your jaw to support permanent dentures. These dental implants mimic the function of natural tooth roots, interacting with the jawbone and promoting its health. All-On-4 offers additional distinct advantages over other alternatives, including:

Restoring Confidence in Your Smile

Tooth loss not only affects your ability to chew and speak effectively but also takes a toll on your self-esteem. Many individuals who have lost teeth often feel self-conscious about their smiles. All-On-4® restorations are designed to restore your confidence in your smile!

Promoting Jawbone Health

Natural teeth stimulate the jawbone during chewing, encouraging bone growth. All-On-4 implants replicate this healthy pressure and stress on the underlying jawbone, facilitating its continued development.

Simple Maintenance

Traditional dentures require removal during sleep and for cleaning, often involving soaking them in a special dental solution overnight. This routine can be cumbersome. In contrast, All-On-4 treatment provides a permanent solution that is easy to maintain, requiring only regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. This is the same as with your natural teeth.

Strength, Stability, and Longevity

Conventional dentures can shift or slip out of place while eating or speaking, leading to potentially embarrassing situations. All-On-4 implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, providing strength, stability, and durability. They feel like natural teeth and allow you to confidently chew your favorite foods, even hard, crunchy, and tough foods.

Bone Grafting

The All-on-4 technique is specifically designed to maximize the use of available bone. In some cases, patients may have sufficient jawbone density in the areas where the implants will be placed, eliminating the need for a bone graft. In a majority of our patients, there isn't need for a bone graft before receiving their All on 4 dental implants.

Apart from density, the quality of the existing bone is also important. We will assess the bone's strength and suitability to support your dental implants. If the quality of the bone is good, a bone graft may not be necessary.
The All-on-4 technique strategically positions the dental implants at specific angles to take advantage of the available bone. This careful planning can often avoid the need for bone grafts.

The All on 4 Procedure

Planning the All-On-4® procedure may take some time, but our practice utilizes cutting-edge dental technology to expedite the process with precision. We place four dental implants in each arch of your jaw – two vertically and two diagonally into your jawbone. This placement maximizes the stability of your implant restorations, allowing you to eat and speak confidently.
After the dental implant placement, a healing period follows. Once the healing process is complete, we will finalize your All-On-4® restorations.
