Regain Your Full Smile with All-on-4
Dental implants have revolutionized the way we replace missing teeth. From a single tooth to an entire arch, implants can help you regain your full smile. At ImplantWide we specialize in the All-on-4 treatment concept, a high-quality restoration that completely replaces a full-arch of missing teeth.
What Is the All-on-4 Treatment Concept
Before the All-on-4 treatment concept, a full-arch restoration required a minimum of six to eight dental implants. As the name suggests, All-on-4 only requires four precisely placed implants to support a permanent set of prosthetic teeth. All-on-4 also eliminates the need for bone augmentation, because we place the posterior (back) implants at an angle that utilizes existing bone.
During a consultation appointment, Dr. Greenlee will perform an extensive exam to determine if you are a suitable candidate for All-on-4. This may include a series of photographs, x-rays, and CBCT scans. Once we develop an appropriate treatment plan, we can schedule the procedure.
The All-on-4 procedure is generally broken down into a few appointments. During the first appointment, we will remove any remaining, problematic teeth, and place the implants deep within the jawbone. The two anterior (front) implants are placed at a completely vertical angle from the bite plane. The two posterior implants are placed at a 35-45 degree angle to maximize support. Once the implants are in place, we will attach a temporary set of beautiful and functional teeth.
The recovery time for All-on-4 typically takes several months. During this period, the implants and your jawbone will fuse through the process of osseointegration. Osseointegrations allow your implants to mimic the natural relationship between tooth root and jawbone. In other words, your All-on-4 restoration will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
Once the healing process is complete, most patients need or choose to install a more permanent restoration. The permanent restoration is fabricated using porcelain or zirconia, two durable and esthetically-pleasing materials. Your new restoration will also allow you to enjoy a completely unrestricted diet.
