All-On-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants, also known as implant-supported dentures, are an effective way to restore missing teeth on both your upper and lower arches.

All-On-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants are a popular alternative to dentures or full-mouth dental implants. This technique involves placing only four implants per jaw instead of traditional implants, often requiring eight to ten implants per jaw. The all-on-4 method is more efficient and comfortable for patients as it reduces the need for bone grafting, and the implants function like natural teeth.

  • What are all-on-4 dental implants?

    All-on-4 implants are a type of dental implant system that is considered revolutionary. This system supports a complete set of teeth on the upper or lower jaw with just four implants. These implants are placed strategically to ensure the replacement teeth remain stable and secure. The advantage of using this system is that it promotes faster patient recovery and reduces the likelihood of complications from potential implant failures.

  • What is an implant-supported bridge?

    A screwed-in dental bridge is a complete set of upper or lower teeth permanently attached to dental implants. It is the most natural feeling option for patients as it closely resembles the look and function of their teeth. Once installed, it cannot be removed by the patient and should only be removed by a dentist once a year. It allows for the best biting and chewing experience among all the available options.

  • How to clean all-on-4 dental implants?

    To prevent any disease, cleaning all the surfaces above and below the gumline daily is essential, just like natural teeth. Regular dental check-ups are also necessary. You can use a manual or electric toothbrush with soft bristles to clean the implants.
