All-On-4® Dental Implants

Illustration of All-On-4 Dental Implants

A mouth restoration with dental implants can be extremely costly, and sometimes insurance companies won’t adequately cover the procedure. If a full mouth of dental implants isn’t in your budget, try our less expensive All-On-4 dental implants in Phoenix. With only 4 surgically placed implants, you can restore or replace all of the natural teeth on the top or bottom jaw.

As many as 35 million Americans are missing all of their teeth on their top or bottom jaws. Many patients living with missing teeth elect to use uncomfortable and inconvenient dentures, but many find that dental implants are a more comfortable option. Instead of living with uncomfortable dentures, or non-functional teeth, try an All-On-4® dental implant surgery.

Why Not Dentures?

Not only are dentures uncomfortable to wear, but many patients report issues talking and chewing. Instead of wearing dentures, a surgically placed dental implant will allow patients to talk and chew as they would with all-natural teeth!

Dentures don’t prevent future bone loss in the teeth and jaw as dental implants do. A dental implant procedure can help keep your jaw bone strong and healthy.

Dentures often limit the types of foods you can eat comfortably. All-On-4® implants restore full chewing power, allowing you to enjoy a varied diet without restrictions.

What Are All-On-4® Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium rods that are surgically implanted into your jawline in the place of every tooth. By attaching them to the jawline, the dental implant is just as strong as a natural tooth would be. As soon as the implants have adhered to your jaw, a custom crown is attached to the implant to make your smile look completely natural.

Eventually, the dental implants will completely fuse with the jawbone to provide patients with a naturally functioning smile.

With All-On-4® dental implants, you don’t need an implant in place of every tooth, you just need 4! Four implants perfectly placed on your top (or bottom) jawline are all you need for a fully restored smile. Patients will see improved appearance and functionality in their teeth with less out-of-pocket expense.

Unlike traditional implants that may require multiple surgeries and extended healing periods, All-On-4® implants allow for immediate placement of temporary teeth. This means you can walk out with a functional smile on the same day as your surgery.

With All-On-4®, there’s no need to worry about dentures slipping or clicking. The implants provide a secure foundation for your new teeth, ensuring a natural and confident smile.

What to Expect During the All-On-4® Procedure

Consultation and Planning: Your journey begins with a thorough consultation where we assess your oral health, take detailed scans, and create a personalized treatment plan.

Surgical Placement: On the day of the surgery, the four implants are placed in your jaw. Temporary teeth are attached to the implants immediately, so you leave with a functional smile.

Healing and Final Restoration: Over the next few months, the implants will fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once fully healed, your permanent, custom-made teeth are attached, completing your smile transformation.

Aftercare for All-On-4® Implants

Oral Hygiene: Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial. Brush and floss daily, and use an antimicrobial mouthwash to keep your mouth clean.

Regular Check-ups: Schedule regular dental visits to monitor the health of your implants and ensure they remain in excellent condition.

Healthy Habits: Avoid smoking and limit your intake of hard or sticky foods to prolong the lifespan of your implants and prosthetic teeth.
