All-on-4® is an implant supported denture system designed to replace an entire row of missing teeth. Using four strategically placed dental implants to secure each new row of teeth in place, these state-of-the-art dentures offer exceptional stability, comfort, and reliability. The All-on-4® method allows patients to avoid many of the inconveniences associated with traditional dentures and enrich their overall quality of life.

What Are the Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants?

Although traditional dentures may serve as an effective form of tooth replacement, some individuals experience several downsides to that solution. Slippage, messy adhesives, food restrictions, and gum irritation can become frustrating and embarrassing, and ultimately prevent patients from focusing on the present moment. All-on-4® dental implants are designed to provide a number of unique advantages that can address those concerns, including:

  • A secure, precise, comfortable fit along the gums
  • The ability to eat and smile without worry
  • No adhesives or pastes
  • Easy maintenance
  • Natural-looking results

The All-on-4® method may also be ideal for patients who are not candidates for a full set of dental implants. Because this denture system uses just four dental implants per row to secure the restoration in place, patients do not require the same level of bone density as they would for an entire set of single implant restorations. In addition, patients rarely need to undergo a bone graft prior to receiving All-on-4® dental implants. All-on-4® can also be a more cost-effective method of replacing teeth compared to an entire set of dental implants while still retaining many of the same advantages. This procedure has a very high satisfaction rate and has helped many individuals achieve their goals with beautiful results.

Great place!!! Makes going to the dentist feel like you’re not going to the dentist. Very clean and state of the art office in beautiful Spring Lake with very friendly and personable staff. Dr. Ciampi is extremely knowledgeable and professional and I would never go to anyone else.

Am I a Candidate for All-on-4® Dental Implants?

Ideal candidates for All-on-4® dental implants are typically patients who:

  • Need full teeth replacement on the upper and/or lower dental arch
  • Are considering full-arch teeth replacement options that offer a more stable and secure alternative to traditional dentures
  • Are in reasonably good overall health
  • Have adequate jawbone density in several areas of the mouth in order to effectively accommodate the dental implants
  • Do not smoke or have a plan in place to quit the habit before the procedure and refrain from smoking after the procedure

In some cases, the All-on-6 implant denture option may be recommended for individuals who may require additional dental implants for sufficient support of the custom denture. During your initial consultation, our dentists at Spring Lake Dental Care will evaluate your needs and determine whether All-on-4®, All-on-6, or another option may be best for your needs.

All-on-4® vs. Traditional Dentures

All-on-4® implant dentures and traditional dentures are designed to essentially serve the same purpose; however, the techniques the two options utilize are quite different. All-on-4® uses four dental implants placed in strategic areas of the jaw to secure and stabilize a custom denture, allowing the denture to feel and function more like a natural set of teeth. This method can also work to prevent future bone loss caused by missing teeth. By contrast, traditional dentures typically rely only on the denture prosthesis plus pastes or other adhesives for stabilization. They are also removable at any time. While today’s denture options have advanced over the years, the lack of dental implants to secure them on the gums can present a significant drawback that affects form, function, and jawbone health. Traditional dentures do not stimulate bone preservation, and bone deterioration over time may cause issues with the fit of the dentures. Ultimately, All-on-4® presents the opportunity for a more durable and comfortable solution with less maintenance required, often making it a worthwhile investment for eligible candidates.

What Should I Expect During the All-on-4® Procedure?

All-on-4® dental implants are designed to replace an entire row of teeth. Oftentimes, candidates for All-on-4® will not have any teeth on the row receiving the restoration, though any remaining teeth can be extracted before the procedure begins. Four titanium posts are then surgically implanted in the gums where they should fuse to the bone underneath, allowing the innovative denture appliance to be fastened and secured in place. Each full-arch restoration is custom-designed for a comfortable fit and natural-looking results, restoring lost function with an aesthetically pleasing look.

  • Upper Arch Replacement: used to replace the upper row of teeth and secured with four dental implants.
  • Lower Arch Replacement: used to replace the bottom row of teeth and secured with four dental implants.
  • Full Mouth Restoration: used to replace both the upper and bottom rows of teeth and secured with a total of eight dental implants.

The All-on-4® method is occasionally customized further when needed, using six dental implants per row rather than four. A “one-size-fits-all” mentality is never used at Spring Lake Dental Care, and our cosmetic dentists will determine whether a patient might better benefit from this All-on-6® method after a thorough oral examination. In some cases, patients may also opt to wear temporary fixed dentures immediately after their implant surgery while the dental implants fully heal. Once the healing process is complete, the permanent restorations can be attached.

What Can I Expect During All-on-4® Dental Implants Recovery?

Recovery after All-on-4® dental implant surgery typically involves a few key stages. Some swelling, bruising, and soreness can be expected for several days after the procedure. These effects can typically be well-managed with medication. Our dentists generally recommend a soft-food diet for a brief period following treatment to minimize stress on the implants during the healing process. As healing progresses, we will schedule regular follow-up appointments to ensure the implants are integrating properly with the jawbone. This process, known as osseointegration, is the step in which the implant fuses to the jawbone in order to provide long-term (potentially lifetime) results.

Throughout recovery, maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to prevent infection and promote healing. Our team will provide specific care instructions for your needs, and adapting these practices will be crucial for successful recovery and long-lasting outcomes.

How Long Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants are designed to serve as permanent artificial tooth roots. Therefore, All-on-4® implant dentures may conceivably last decades into the future. With that in mind, very good care of the implants and the custom dentures must be taken over the long-term. Patients should always follow recommendations on regular at-home oral hygiene routines and attend routine dental check-ups to maximize the longevity of outcomes for their All-on-4® implant dentures.

How Much Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Cost?

This restorative dentistry procedure will vary from patient to patient. Each implant-secured denture is customized, and no two restorations are the same. Variables that impact the cost of All-on-4® dental implants may include the location and number of implants used during the procedure; whether a patient chooses upper arch replacement, lower arch replacement, or full mouth restoration; laboratory costs to manufacture the implant-secured denture; the experience and skill of the dentist; and geographic location of the dentist’s office. Patients who might benefit from a flexible payment method with monthly installments may qualify for one of our dental financing options.
