Imagine a beautiful and complete smile in one day!
With the remarkable All-on-4®1 method of care, we can help patients who have either already lost, or are scheduled to have all of their upper and/or lower teeth extracted, quickly rebuild their smiles to speak, smile, and eat with renewed confidence and ease!
What is All-On-4®1?
The All-On-4 treatment concept offers an implant-based solution to patients who have lost all of their upper and/or lower teeth. This remarkable method of care helps patients quickly rebuild complete and beautiful smiles. With All-On-4, your new, and complete set of implant-supported replacement teeth feel secure, stable, and much like your very own.
Is All-On-4® right for me?
If you currently wear complete upper and/or lower dentures or are slated to have your remaining teeth extracted, you may be a candidate for All-On-4. First Performed by Dr. Paulo Malo in 1998, the All-on-4 treatment concept has helped hundreds of thousands of patients quickly reestablish attractive smiles that look, feel, and function just like a set of natural teeth!
What is the difference between All-On-4® and dentures?
The All-On-4 treatment concept offers a fixed and permanent alternative to removable dentures. Unlike dentures, All-On-4 does not rely on messy dental adhesives or natural suction to hold your new set of teeth in place. With All-On-4, your replacement teeth are permanently secured by dental implants, giving you a smile that looks not only great but also feels secure and stable. You’ll feel comfortable and confident as you speak, smile, and chew with ease.
How is All-On-4® different from other types of dental implants?
While traditional full arch implants also achieve outstanding results of care, the All-On-4 treatment concept does not involve bone grafting and requires fewer implants to support a full set of teeth. With just four strategically placed dental implants needed to support an entire set of upper or lower teeth, the All-on-4 treatment concept offers a cost-effective and satisfying solution for rebuilding a complete smile. Thanks to this remarkable method of care, patients can experience the satisfaction of having teeth placed the same day as surgery. This key feature allows patients to smile and function with confidence until healing is complete and the permanent restorations installed.
What’s the procedure for All-On-4® treatment?
Once it’s been determined that you’re a candidate for treatment with All-On-4, the process of treatment planning and designing your new smile begins. 3D diagnostic records provide the detailed information required to determine the exact positions of the four supporting dental implants. Then, on the day of surgery, we’ll remove any remaining teeth, place the 4 implants, and insert a set of attractive, sturdy, and functional set of temporary teeth. With All-On-4, temporary teeth can be placed right away with a customized, permanent set to follow once the implants become fully integrated with the surrounding bone.
Will I have teeth right away with All-On-4® treatment?
With All-On-4, temporary teeth can be placed right away with a customized, permanent set to follow within just a few months after the implants become fully integrated with the surrounding bone.
Will All-On-4® give me a natural-looking smile?
Thanks to All-On-4, patients enjoy permanent teeth that look, feel, and function just like real teeth. And with a patient satisfaction rate that exceeds 95%, the All-on-4 treatment concept restores your smile, your confidence, and allows you to enjoy once again the foods you love!
How do I take care of my new All-On-4® smile?
Maintaining your All-On-4 smile requires the same care as a natural smile. By cleaning your teeth twice daily, after meals as possible, and scheduling appointments for routine checkups as well as care, you can keep your new smile strong and healthy for years to come. Our office will demonstrate the most effective methods of oral hygiene and answer all your questions as to how to care for your new smile.
