The All-on-4 tooth replacement system is a shining example of the way that dental implants have dramatically improved our ability to replace missing teeth. Using advanced digital imaging and cutting-edge surgical techniques, Dr. Vickers can fully replace the teeth in the upper or lower jaw upon a strong foundation of four dental implants.
With this technique, our patients are saying goodbye to poorly-fitting conventional dentures and welcoming a new, full set of permanent teeth.
The All-on-4 Surgical Procedure
The first stage of the All-on-4 procedure involves a full consultation and very detailed records of your current health status and your oral health. Digital images, pictures, and impressions of your gums and remaining teeth will be collected to aid in the development of your treatment plan. In concert with your restorative dentist, we will make plans to remove the remaining teeth, select the size and shape of your new teeth, and identify the exact placement and angle of each dental implant.
In the second stage of the procedure, our team will complete the surgical placement of four dental implants and attach your permanent teeth in our fully equipped surgical suite. The implants are placed in a minimally invasive nature and most surgeries can be performed without the need for bone grafting. This phase can be completed in one day and most patients are able to enjoy a soft meal by dinner time.
The Benefits of All-on-4
Appearance: Teeth that are permanently anchored to the jawbone will provide a visual impression that is more attractive and more stable-looking than any removable appliance. An All-on-4 restoration will also be less bulky than a conventional denture—even without gummy adhesives.
Confidence: All-on-4 dental implants are strong, stable, and easy to clean. With an implant-based restoration, you’ll enjoy the confidence and freedom of knowing that your artificial teeth won’t let you down whether you are laughing with friends or enjoying a nice meal.
Security: Clinical research and trials have established dental implant restorations as the tooth replacement choice that is most likely to remain in place while continuing to function at a high level for a lifetime. This is largely due to each implant’s ability to retain the structure of the jawbone while maintaining a permanent position.
