All-On-Four Dentures Q & A
What is all-on-four dental implants?
All-On-Four dental implants refers to a specific implant denture technique where your dentist strategically places four (or more) dental implants in the gums of your top and bottom arch to anchor and support a full set of dentures. The implants are placed in areas of the gums with the highest bone density to overcome any deficiencies or anatomical structures. The procedure provides a permanent, screw-retained, same-day replacement for the entire upper and/or lower set of teeth with a bridge or denture.
Am I a candidate for all-on-four dental implants?
This procedure is best for patients with significant tooth loss or decay, and for people whose bone loss in the jaw area prevents them from getting conventional dental implants. Tooth loss is often followed by loss of the jaw bone, which then requires bone grafting for reconstruction of the the jaw bone. All-On-Four takes advantage of the dense bone that is left in the front of the jaw and angles the posterior implants to avoid having to deal with jaw reconstruction and bone grafting.
what are the benefits of all-on-four dental implants?
All-On-Four Dental Implants provide a plethora of benefits over traditional dentures:
- No slippage or shifting
- Improved gum comfort
- Natural-looking results
- Easy maintenance
- No messy pastes or adhesives
All-On-Four dental implants allows patients to chew and speak with confidence, knowing that their dentures are securely held in place, while providing a natural look and maintaining the shape of the patient’s jaw and face structure.
what to expect during the all-on-four process?
While Anna Vaysman, DMD, and her team of specialists at Scottsdale Dental Bottega create a custom, individualized plan for each and every All-On-Four patient to fit his/her oral needs, schedule, and lifestyle, the majority of patients will have a similar process. The two main stages are:
- A surgical procedure to place the necessary implants
- Delivery and placement of custom-made implant dentures
Upon completion of the implant surgery, patients are given temporary restorations to wear during the fusion process of the implants to the jawbone. This means that patients will have a set of functioning, stable dentures to wear the same day as their procedure! Once the fusion process has progressed and the implants have healed, patients return for their custom-fitted dentures to get the best possible look and feel for their new smile.
