Are you currently wearing a denture, or need to replace all your teeth at one time? An All-on-4 implant treatment is a revolutionary way to give you a confident smile that does away with the need to wear a removable prosthesis.
What is an All-on-4 Denture?
Using just four strategically placed dental implants, the All-on-4® “denture” looks more like an extended bridge. While it doesn’t cover the roof of your mouth, it does follow the contour of your natural anatomy with a “U” shaped design. This frees up extra space in your mouth to speak more clearly and enjoy the taste of your meals again.
You might think that four implants aren’t strong enough to bear the weight of a full denture, but they are! Each tilted implant is set into the bone in a way that allows it to support the forces of multiple healthy teeth.
Teeth in a Day
The All-on-4 process eliminates extra surgeries such as bone grafts or lengthy recovery times. In many cases, Dr. Hanna can place a fixed provisional bridge on the very same date as your implant surgery. After your recovery, you’ll be able to have the permanent All-on-4® denture installed.
Am I a Candidate?
Getting All-on-4® treatment is different than other types of dental implant therapy. Even if you’re not a candidate for traditional implants, you may still be able to successfully complete All-on-4® treatment. Dr. Hanna will want to take an x-ray of your teeth and perform a comprehensive examination to assess your oral health and bone structure just to make sure.
