All-on-4 dental implants are a full set of implants designed to replace your entire upper or lower set of teeth. They act as a more permanent and natural-looking alternative to dentures. With an All-on-4 implant, you don’t need to replace each lost tooth individually. Instead, a dental professional will surgically insert four titanium posts into your jawbone as the main anchors. They can then attach a permanent denture at those four areas for a seamless look across your entire mouth.

There are many advantages of implant-supported full bridges over conventional dentures.

Superior to Dentures – According to The American Academy of Periodontology, when it comes to bone and dental health, full-mouth dental implants are vastly superior to dentures. The implants replace some of the tooth roots and integrate with the jawbone, which better preserves the bone.

Greater Comfort and Stability – With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded your tooth deteriorates over time. Implants are securely attached to your jawbone, making them much more stable and comfortable than dentures. They look, feel, and function very much like natural teeth.

Simple Maintenance – Regular maintenance is accomplished by brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily.

Planning for the Surgery

3-D technology is used to determine exactly where in your jaw the implants should be placed. A surgical guide will be created to aid in the implant placement procedure. 

The Procedure

The first step in the procedure is the extraction of any remaining teeth. Implants are simultaneously placed in your jaw. Typically, 4-6 implants are placed per jaw. A temporary fitted set of teeth will be secured to the implants and worn during the healing phase (generally lasts 4-6 months). During this healing phase, the bone integrates with the implants. This process is called osseointegration. After the healing phase and implants are securely anchored in the jawbone, Dr. Fernandez will place the permanent implant-supported bridge or denture. This final step will require a series of try-in appointments and then your permanent set of teeth will be delivered. Your beautiful smile will be restored and you will have fully functioning teeth once again.
