What is All-on-4?

The All-on-4 treatment concept is a tooth replacement procedure that provides a permanent, graft-less, and rapid replacement for the entire upper and lower set of teeth. All-on dental implants are best suited for the total rehabilitation of a patient who has lost most of their teeth due to long-standing gum disease or traumatic injury. It is also a viable option for patients whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting conventionally oriented (vertical) dental implants. 

 

Often, tooth loss is accompanied by loss of the jaw bone, for which to be reconstructed will need additional bone grafting surgeries. This All-on technique takes advantage of the dense remnant bone available in the front of the jaws by placing a few dental implants on an angle. This strategic angulation of the dental implants allows them to cleverly maneuver around your sinus cavities in the upper jaw and the nerve canal in the lower jaw.

 

Am I a Good Candidate For an All-on-4?

The following characteristics are those of an ideal candidate, but a dentist will be able to let you know if an All-on-4 procedure is appropriate for your personal situation.

Good Oral Health
Decay can affect the success of implants.

Tobacco Use
Tobacco use reduces the body’s ability to heal after surgery.

Good Overall Health
Chronic conditions such as poorly controlled diabetes can limit healing.

Sufficient Bone Density
All-on-4 implants require less bone than other procedures, but patients without sufficient bone tissue may require bone grafts or an All-on-6.

What Are My Other Options For Replacing Missing Teeth?

Dental implants

Single dental implants are great options for people who are missing only a few teeth. With a success rate of 95%, dental implants are some of the most reliable dental inventions in today’s restorative market.

Dentures

Going the simpler route, dentures can replace your teeth with ease. Low maintenance and affordable, dentures can be great for people who are willing to be a little forgiving, aesthetic-wise.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

If you want to restore a damaged tooth or to replace missing ones, dental crowns and bridges can be brilliant at doing so. By seeking support from adjacent teeth, they can firmly equip your mouth for your daily chewing!

All-on-4 Procedure

An All-on-4 is a minor, outpatient surgery performed in stages. Healing time in between the procedures is also anticipated. The process of placing All-on-4 dental implants involves the following steps:

  1. Your dentist takes a 3D dental tomography or a Dental Cone Beam CT Scan of your dental arches to determine whether or not bone graft, tooth extractions, or sinus lift augmentation will be necessary.
  2. Four dental implants are placed into the jawbone, depending on your needs. 
  3. A provisional or temporary prosthesis will be placed right away to help you eat and talk while you wait for the implant sites to heal. 
  4. The healing period takes four to six months, in which time the implants would integrate with your jaw bone to create a solid and firm connection.
  5. A permanent solution is attached once the surgical site has healed. The procedure takes anywhere from two to four hours to complete.
  6. Following the procedure, your mouth will be healing and you will have to exercise caution when eating hard or chewy foods.
  7. Any swelling or discomfort that follows after the procedure will subside in a few weeks. If they persist, contact your dentist.

Why Do I Have to Wait 4 to 6 Months?

Once the metal implant post is placed in your jawbone, the process of osseointegration begins. The goal here is to have the implant fuse with your bone to acquire additional strength and anchorage. During this healing time, the jawbone grows around the dental implant until the implant has fully been engulfed by the bone. 

This process can take several months but is necessary to provide a solid base for your new artificial tooth. The implants act as your natural teeth roots and stabilize the bridge and denture that is to be placed on them.

Immediately Following Procedure

Your dentist will provide recovery instructions and you will be prescribed pain medications to help manage swelling and discomfort. You will generally be advised to eat soft food for a period of time and commit to a healthy oral hygiene routine.

After Returning Home

Any swelling or discomfort that follows after the procedure will subside in a few weeks. If symptoms persist, contact your dentist.
