A technique used to support a fixed denture for either the upper or lower jaw using only four implants. The implants are placed in the anterior region of the jaw, where bone density is higher. The back implants are typically angled to achieve maximum support from the existing bone.
All-on-four dental implants have become an increased demand among patients. Through our expertise, you can learn more about this form of treatment, what factors are expected for patients after treatment, and how all-on-four implants can help replace missing teeth and restore gum and jawbone health.
Dr. Atcha is an expert at this state-of-the-art procedure and has performed more than 10,000 All-on-4 dental implant procedures.
The All-on-4 dental implants replace all your missing teeth on the upper or lower jaw using only four implants, which are inserted using a virtually painless procedure.
In addition to placing implants in your jaw bone, he can make use of your zygomatic bone to anchor longer implants. These longer implants work well for people whose upper jaw is deficient in bone or who wear upper dentures that don’t fit well despite having them fixed multiple times.
The All-on-4 implants procedure requires no bone grafting for most patients, while traditional implants often require bone grafting, a process that can take six months or longer. Traditional implants also require five to eight implants for one arch of teeth while the All-on-4 procedure only uses four implants for your upper or lower arch of teeth.
Dr. Atcha places the implants of the All-on-4 procedure at an angle, allowing them to have an increase in support by using the natural support of your jaw bone.
The procedure is relatively fast, taking approximately two to three hours per arch. Thankfully, published studies show a 98% success rate using All-on-4 dental implants.
Some side effects of the procedure may include pain, swelling, and soreness at the treatment site. Nonetheless, all of these symptoms should subside within a few days.
Dr. Atcha recommends you rest so you can adjust to your new implants for one to two days following the procedure. In addition, you should take care of your new implants the same way you would regular teeth by flossing, brushing, and visiting Dr. Atcha a minimum of twice a year for dental check-ups.
The longevity of All-on-Four implants can vary based on several factors, including individual oral health, oral hygiene practices, and lifestyle choices. When properly cared for and maintained, All-on-Four implants have the potential to last for many years, even decades. However, it’s important to note that the lifespan of the prosthetic teeth themselves may be shorter than the implants. The prosthetic teeth may require periodic replacement due to normal wear and tear or changes in oral health.
