A New Smile in a Single Day

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots, but does that mean you need one for each missing tooth? Not necessarily. In fact, with the innovative All-on-4 treatment, our Parma Heights, OH, dental team can use just four implants to replace a full arch of missing teeth. This remarkable method is also fast — we may be able to give you a new smile in a single day! Continue reading this page to learn all the basics about All-on-4, and then contact Advanced Dental Center when you are ready to book your tooth replacement consultation. We look forward to serving you!

How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Work?

During the All-on-4 surgery, we place four dental implants into the jawbone, carefully inserting them in areas where the bone is naturally strong and thick. Two go toward the back of the mouth at an angle, and two go toward the front of the mouth. This strategic placement often allows us to avoid the need for a bone graft. Plus, All-on-4 implants can support a denture right away. In a single day, we may be able to remove your remaining natural teeth, place your dental implants, and provide you with a beautiful new set of teeth! A few months after the initial procedure, your temporary denture will be replaced by a permanent one.

Am I a Candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants might be suitable for you if:

  • You are missing all or most of your teeth throughout a dental arch.
  • You have adequate jawbone density to support dental implants. (Most patients meet this requirement even without a bone graft.)
  • You are free of active gum disease and other conditions that might interfere with your implants’ long-term success.
  • You have good habits that will reduce your risk of dental implant failure.

Most patients who are interested in All-on-4 can qualify for the procedure, either immediately or after some preparatory restorative services.

Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants offer many of the same benefits as traditional implant procedures, including:

  • You can enjoy a strong bite force that enables you to eat virtually any food.
  • All-on-4 dentures are permanently fixed to the implants that support them, making them feel like natural teeth.
  • Jawbone preservation. Because they act as prosthetic tooth roots, dental implants can stimulate the jawbone and prevent it from deteriorating.
  • Our team carefully designs All-on-4 dentures so they complement each patient’s natural features. They should look incredibly natural!
  • Easy maintenance. In some ways, caring for All-on-4 dentures is just like caring for natural teeth.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants

There are a few key differences between All-on-4 and traditional dental implants:

  • All-on-4 tends to be faster because it allows you to get your new teeth right away. It also usually requires just one surgery as opposed to two or more.
  • All-on-4 may be more cost-effective and less invasive because it often requires fewer implant posts than full-arch replacement with traditional implants.
  • Traditional implants can replace any number of missing teeth, while All-on-4 is exclusively for full-arch replacement.
  • Traditional treatments may be sturdier in some cases due to the use of more implants.

Our team will help you determine which dental implant treatment is right for you.
