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.

Affordability

Instead of paying for a dental implant for each missing tooth, patients only need to pay for four implants.

Fast Results

Unlike traditional implant treatment, which can take months, All-on-4 patients can receive a fully restored smile after one appointment.

Broad Candidacy

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.”

All-on-4 dental implants
All-on-4 dental implants allow patients who would otherwise require additional preparatory procedures to receive dental implants in a timely fashion.

Candidacy Considerations

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.

Find Out If You Qualify

If you would like to learn more about whether you qualify for this procedure, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our implant dentist in Albuquerque, NM, today.

During your initial consultation, Dr. James Slaman will perform a thorough examination to determine your candidacy for dental implants. He can help you determine if All-on-4 implants are right for you, or if another solution, such as dental crowns or a bridge, is more appropriate for your needs.

Dr. Slaman Explains Implant-Supported Dentures

Dr. James Slaman discusses the benefits of implant-supported dentures. Patients who have struggled with loose-fitting dentures can experience a new level of comfort and confidence with dental implants. Dr. Slaman can place two implants to secure a loose denture, or four implants to support a fixed dental restoration.
