All-On-4® is an alternative to placing a top or bottom set of replacement teeth, called a full arch. Four dental implants are placed in available bone, avoiding the need for bone grafting. Special abutments are used so that a temporary set of replacement teeth can be placed the same day. You follow a modified diet while the gum tissues heal and the implants bond with your natural bone. After about six months, the permanent replacement teeth will be placed and you can resume a regular diet.
The All-on-4 approach involves multiple appointments, typically including one or two consultation and planning visits, one to place the dental implants and temporary teeth, check-ups during the six month healing period, and another appointment to place the final bridge.
If all your lower teeth are missing, another option may be to stabilize your removable denture using a small number of implants. After healing, abutment posts are attached to the implants. Your current denture can sometimes be modified, or a new denture can be created. The denture is snapped into place and can be removed daily for cleaning.
