All-On-Four® Dental ImplantsAn Overview
At the office D. Bradley Dean, DDS, near Dallas, TX, Dr. Dean offers the All-on-Four dental implant procedure. This new technique offers dental implants for patients who need to replace most or all of their missing teeth.
The All-on-Four dental implant denture procedure is best suited for replacing the lower set of missing teeth. Typically, placing dental implants on the lower jaw is difficult due to anatomical insufficiencies and location of nerves. All-on-4 places dental implants on an angle, avoiding these areas and eliminating the need for bone grafting thus saving time for healing and money.
The use of dental implants has developed in recent years to offer new techniques to address a larger number of patients with missing teeth and poor fitting dentures.
What are All-on-Four Dental Implants?
The All-on-Four technique uses four dental implants to secure a denture. This creates a modern permanent denture that improves function and stability without the worry of issues that come with traditional dentures.
This unique treatment approach can bring back full function without the need for daily maintenance, dietary restriction and garbled speech that often accompany traditional dentures.
All-on-Four dental implants are a revolutionary type of dental implant procedure that maximizes the use of available bone. Dr. Bradley Dean is a highly trained periodontist with years of experience providing quality results from the comfort of our Dallas dentist office.

All-On-Four® Dental Implants What to Expect
About the All-on-Four Procedure
The first phase of your treatment is the treatment planning at our Dallas dentist office. Dr. Dean will use 3D CAT Scanning and Cone Beam Scanner to determine the precise angle and location of the implants.
This technique will take advantage of the healthy bone tissue for a secure, lasting result. Dr. Dean will also create molds of the mouth by taking impressions. These are used to fabricate a dental restoration that will be attached to the implants.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Dean will remove the necessary teeth that are damaged, decayed, or compromised in a comfortable operatory setting using sedation dentistry.
Next, Dr. Dean will place around 4 dental implants depending on the patient’s needs and specific circumstances. A temporary dental restoration will be secured to the dental implants to restore esthetics and function.
The dental implants will take about 3-6 months to heal and then you will return to our Dallas periodontist dentist office. When the dental implants are fully integrated with the jaw bone, the temporary bridge will be removed and the final, permanent, custom designed dental restoration will be secured.
