All-on-4 is a specific denture type that can replace most or all of your teeth in your upper or lower arch. While you might need one or more extractions for any teeth remaining in the arch, All-on-4 gives you beautiful and functional results with just four implant posts.
Getting All-on-4 implants is similar to getting a single dental implant. You go through the meticulous planning process and may need to get a bone graft if your jawbone isn’t dense enough to accommodate the titanium posts.
All-on-4 is also called teeth in one day because the process of placing the implants and attaching the custom denture takes just one day. Your dentist surgically places four implants at even intervals across your arch.
Planning your All-on-4 implant treatment involves advanced diagnostic and planning technology. The team at LA Dentists Group invites you in to get cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, which produce detailed images of your mouth and jaw.
Along with computer imaging and 3D models, the team plans the locations and angles for each of the four implants in your All-on-4 treatment. Your treatment also involves getting a custom denture, which the team designs according to the dimensions and appearance of your original smile.
If you’re missing every tooth in either your upper or lower arch, you have a few options for what to do next. One of those options, and perhaps the most beneficial if you’re a candidate, is All-on-4 dental implants. Other options are dentures or simply going without teeth.
Some of the benefits of All-on-4 and of dental implants in general include:
Your dentist can address any cosmetic complications with natural teeth by designing your All-on-4 denture to look pristine yet natural when you grin. After you’ve had your All-on-4s for a while, you might not even notice a difference between the feel of using them versus your original teeth.
