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
Restoring your smile with the All-on-4 method allows you to replace 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 titanium implant posts.
Unlike traditional implant-supported denture treatment, which can take months, All-on-4 patients never have to go a day without teeth.
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.
Find Out If You Qualify
If you would like to learn more about whether you qualify for this dental implant 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.

Sedation & Financing Are Available
Oral Conscious Sedation
In order to help anxious patients relax during treatment, oral conscious sedation is available before any surgical procedure. Oral conscious sedation offers a moderate level of sedation and is administered as a pill taken before your appointment. Because oral conscious sedation can cause drowsiness, patients will need to arrange transportation to and from their appointment.
Flexible Financing Options
We make dental treatment more affordable through in-house financing and CareCredit®. CareCredit provides financing for dental procedures and offers monthly payment plans for up to 60 months. With the help of CareCredit and our in-house financing, patients can receive the treatment they need to reach their oral health goals while managing out-of-pocket expenses.
