What are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

All-On-4 dental implants offer a groundbreaking solution for patients looking to restore their smiles after losing all or multiple teeth. This innovative technique involves using four strategically placed dental implants to support a full arch of prosthetic teeth, providing a stable and permanent solution for tooth loss. Dr. Mariam and Dr. Yara offer All-On-4 dental implants in Glendora, CA, combining their expertise with the latest technology to transform smiles and lives. Unlike traditional implants, the All-On-4 method can often bypass the need for bone grafting, making it a quicker and more accessible option for many patients. Known for their ability to provide "teeth in a day," All-On-4 implants are charting a new course in the world of dental restoration.

What Issues Do All-On-4 Dental Implants Address?
  • All-On-4 dental implants are designed to address the significant challenges associated with severe tooth loss or decay. This includes difficulty eating, speaking, and the lack of confidence that often comes with missing teeth.
  • Traditional dentures can slip and cause discomfort, whereas All-On-4 implants offer a fixed and more natural-feeling solution. 
  • By anchoring a full arch of prosthetic teeth to just four implants, this method also mitigates the jawbone degradation typically associated with tooth loss, preserving facial structure and oral health. 
  • The All-On-4 technique is particularly beneficial for patients who may not have enough bone density for individual implants, providing a viable and effective alternative.
What Are the Benefits?

There’s a reason the All-on-4 approach has become so popular amongst patients and it comes down to the many advantages they have over other tooth replacement solutions. 

  • One of the most immediate advantages is the "teeth in a day" concept, where patients can walk out of their appointment with a fully restored smile in just one visit. 
  • All-On-4 implants offer improved comfort and functionality over traditional dentures, eliminating the worry of slipping or uncomfortable wear. 
  • From an oral health perspective, these implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing the bone loss that often accompanies tooth loss. 
  • Caring for All-On-4 implants is similar to caring for natural teeth, simplifying oral hygiene routines. 
  • Ultimately, patients enjoy a permanent solution that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth, significantly enhancing quality of life.
What you should know about All-On-4 before visiting our office:

What is the process?

While everyone’s journey is unique to their case, here's a general overview of the process:

  • Initial Consultation: This first step involves a thorough examination, including X-rays and 3D imaging, to determine if you're a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants. Your cosmetic dentist in Glendora will discuss your goals and outline the treatment plan.
  • Preparation: On the day of your procedure, any remaining teeth in the affected arch may need to be extracted to prepare for implant placement.
  • Implant Placement: The four implants are then surgically placed into the jawbone at specific angles to maximize support and stability.
  • Immediate Load: A significant advantage of the All-On-4 technique is the ability to attach a temporary set of teeth on the same day as the implants are placed, providing immediate function and aesthetics.
  • Healing Period: Although you'll have functional teeth immediately, the implants will need several months to fully integrate with the jawbone. During this time, you'll follow a soft food diet and return for check-ups to monitor healing.

Permanent Prosthesis: Once healing is complete, you'll return to Foothill Family Dental Group to have your permanent, custom-made prosthetic teeth attached to the implants, completing your smile transformation.

How long do All-On-4 implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, All-On-4 dental implants can last many years, often a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene, and avoiding harmful habits like smoking can extend the longevity of your implants.

Is the implant placement surgery painful?

The procedure is performed under sedation, ensuring comfort throughout. Post-operative discomfort is typically mild and manageable with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers. Most patients report minimal discomfort, especially compared to the benefits they experience.

Can I eat normally once I’ve healed?

Yes, one of the greatest benefits of All-On-4 dental implants is the ability to eat a wide range of foods without the restrictions often associated with traditional dentures. After the initial healing period, you can enjoy your favorite foods with confidence.

How do I care for my All-On-4 implants?

Caring for your All-On-4 implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. Daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are essential. Special attention to cleaning around the implant sites is important to prevent infection and ensure the longevity of the implants. You can purchase special dental floss for implants or use interdental brushes to ensure no food remains trapped under the prosthetic.
