All-On-4® Dental Implant Procedure

For our purposes today, we will concisely simplify the process, but we will go into greater detail once it’s determined you’d be a great candidate for dental implants. All-On-4® are popular because these innovative implants require less bone density than traditional dental implants. All-On-4® dental implants capitalize on your existing bone density, which means that most people will be viable candidates for this appealing tooth replacement option.

After Dr. Goodling reviews your medical and dental history, our team will take 3-D x-rays and digital scans of your mouth. Goals are discussed, and Dr. Goodling creates a treatment plan to restore teeth with cutting-edge dental implants. With All-On-4® dental implants, all of your teeth will be replaced in one day. With only two implants in the front of your mouth and two angled implants in the back, a full arch is created and supported in just one day. Traditional dental implants require longer to become fully secure and stable in your mouth, and traditional implants require more than four implants.

The one-day process of these dental implants makes them a perfect tooth replacement option for busy patients who are missing teeth. Bone grafts are unnecessary with this type of dental implant, and that’s excellent news for our patients.

If, after a comprehensive evaluation, All-on-4® appears to be the best option to replace your missing teeth, Dr. Goodling will extract any remaining teeth that need to go and prepare your jawbone for the four dental implants. We will evaluate your implants’ stability once they are placed. After just a few days, you’ll be able to bite and chew normally, and your implants will heal over three to six months. You will get a permanent implant denture once your implants are fully integrated into your jawbone.

Benefits of All-On-4® Dental Implants

Having teeth in just one day is a massive advantage of the All-On-4® dental implants, but there are so many others:

  • The angled implants are more comfortable than other implants
  • The All-On-4® dental implant procedure is less invasive than traditional implants
  • You’ll spend less time at the dentist’s office with this type of dental implant
  • Because less bone density is needed, patients with osteoporosis can have All-On-4® implants
  • You won’t face the embarrassment of missing teeth; you won’t have to hide your smile with your hand; and you won’t have to avoid social situations any longer
  • Your oral health will improve
  • You will have a more youthful appearance than you would with dentures or missing teeth
  • Your self-confidence will skyrocket
  • You will be able to enjoy all the foods you love (dentures come with several dietary restrictions)
  • You will have a full set of natural-looking teeth that function and feel just like your natural teeth

You may see and hear the term “implant-supported denture” as you research dental implants. An implant-supported denture replaces several teeth at once. While it’s similar to a traditional denture, it attaches directly to your jawbone using dental implants rather than sitting on top of your gums like dentures. All-On-4® dental implants have been changing lives one mouth at a time, and we encourage you to meet Dr. Goodling to learn more about how these dental implants can restore your smile and improve your quality of life.
