All-on-4 Dental Implants
In the past, patients missing an entire arch of teeth had to choose between unstable, uncomfortable dentures or lengthy implant treatment.
Now, those patients can visit Dr. James Slaman in Albuquerque, NM, and restore their smile in a single appointment with All-on-4® implants.
Why is this such an exciting innovation in dentistry?
The Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants
Complete Smile Restoration
The All-on-4 method replaces a full arch of missing teeth with a lifelike, securely fastened denture.
Instead of paying for a dental implant for each missing tooth, patients only need to pay for four implants.
Unlike traditional implant treatment, which can take months, All-on-4 patients can receive a fully restored smile after one appointment.
With this technique, implants are placed at a strategic angle, so even patients with compromised bone density can qualify without a bone graft.
What Is All-on-4?
The All-on-4® dental implant concept is a landmark procedure involving a fixed denture supported by just four implants. Typically, two vertical implants are placed in the front of the jaw, and two angled implants are placed in the back of the jaw. Because the implants are strategically positioned, even patients who have suffered some jawbone atrophy can benefit from this teeth replacement solution. Patients can often receive their permanent restoration immediately following dental implant surgery. For this reason, you may hear this technique referred to as “same-day-teeth” or “teeth-in-a-day.”
A Need for Full Arch Replacement
If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth on the upper arch, lower arch, or both, you are probably a good candidate for this dental implant treatment. Whether you have been wearing traditional dentures for years, or you are exploring denture options for the first time, All-on-4 dentures could be life-changing.
Good Overall Health
For optimal success, patients should be in good physical health before undergoing any kind of dental surgery in order to minimize the risk of complications. Patients who smoke will be required to abstain from using any tobacco products until full healing is complete. Ideally, they should plan to quit for good.
