With the All-On Four technique, it is now possible to have a new smile in just one visit to our Plano, TX dentist office.
All on Four® is a dental implant technique that requires as few as four dental implants to secure a full arch of teeth. Combining modern dental technology and precise pre-treatment planning, Dr. Bradley Dean can provide dental implant secured dentures to patients who were once unable to receive dental implants. Patients with compromised bone structure can now enjoy the long term benefits of dental implants.
Some people who currently wear dentures are unhappy with how they look and feel. Dentures do not allow some people to eat or speak comfortably. Most denture wearers tell us that they don’t smile as much as they used to because they are afraid the dentures will slip, or that others will notice their dentures. The use of dental implants has developed in recent years to offer new techniques like All-on-4 dental implants to address a larger number of patients with missing teeth and poor fitting dentures.
Is All-on-4 right for me?
This method of replacing missing teeth is recommended for patients who need all or most of their teeth replaced and they suffer from low bone volume. Since no bone graft is needed for All-on-4, it is recommended for people suffering from diabetes or osteoporosis who are unable to undergo a bone graft. Dr. Dean will need to do a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you quality for All-on-4 implants. Age is generally not a factor in having the procedure done.
How is this different from an implant-supported denture?
The All-On-Four technique places only four dental implants at a precise angle and optimizes any healthy bone tissue. A traditional denture implants uses anywhere from six to eight implants. For many patients, this technique eliminates the need for bone grafting and you can have any necessary teeth removed, implants placed, and a temporary dental restoration fit all in one surgery. This saves patients time and months of healing time. All-on-4 implants also save the patients money. This is because fewer implants are required and the entire process is done at one time. All-on-4 offers the same durability and support as a regular denture implant but with less implants and a faster treatment time.
