The All-on-4 treatment concept provides many benefits to those who are suffering from severe tooth loss or decay. Having few or no healthy functioning teeth can drastically affect your quality of life. Simple tasks like eating and speaking normally can become difficult, and the pain with broken or missing teeth can be extremely uncomfortable. With All-on-4, an entire upper or lower arch of teeth can be placed in just one procedure. The All-on-4 is gaining popularity as a convenient tooth replacement option that restores the look and function of natural teeth.
The All-on-4 works by placing a natural-looking prosthesis on top of four dental implant posts. During the surgical procedure, the implant posts are strategically placed into the upper or lower jaw. Just like regular dental implants, the posts are made of medical-grade titanium, which will fuse with the jaw bone over the next several weeks. A temporary but fixed prosthesis can be placed while the implants are healing. Once your oral surgeon has confirmed the posts have successfully integrated into the jaw bone, your permanent prosthesis can be placed.
