Procedure Details

To fully understand this remarkable technique for replacing teeth, you should first understand what a dental implant is. An implant is a small titanium screw that fits inside your jawbone and replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. Minor surgery is required to insert the implants. Once the implant is in place, a crown is attached to give you a highly realistic-looking and functional prosthetic tooth.

Here’s where it gets really interesting: You do not need a dental implant for each and every one of your missing teeth. All you need is four precisely placed implants on the top of your mouth, and four on the bottom, to restore your full smile. That’s the beauty of the all-on-four. And because the implant is made of titanium, it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone and function as part of it.

So eventually, the dental implant becomes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong, long-lasting foundation for your new teeth. Besides ensuring that your implants are permanently fixed in place, this bone fusion has another important benefit: it prevents future bone loss in the jaw. This helps to maintain a more youthful facial structure—and better oral health. But perhaps the biggest surprise about the all-on-four is how quickly it can transform your life.

The All-on-4 treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graft less solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. Characteristics include: Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants ; Two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior for immediate function (fixed provisional bridge). For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants graft less procedure bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone. Dr. Cantu will evaluate your case and take a 3D scan to make sure you have available bone and are good candidate for the all on four. If you are not happy with the teeth that God gave you, if you are in pain with your teeth, if you are looking for a long term solution with your teeth call Crown Dental to see if you are a candidate for the all on four dental implants or implant dentures.
