All-on-4 Dental Implants

After significant tooth loss, All-on-4 dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for a full or complete denture in the upper or lower jaw. It’s a lifesaver for people dealing with the stress of a loose denture, or for those who are on the brink of total tooth loss. Dr. Ari Kakkar along with Board Certified Oral Surgeons provide the treatment in the state-of-the-art Skylands Dental office — keep reading to learn more, then schedule an appointment to discuss the treatment option for your smile!

What Are Dental Implants?

A comprehensive option to tooth loss, dental implants replace the missing tooth’s root as well as its crown, or the portion you can see.

A traditional dental implant is comprised of three parts:

  • The titanium implant, which is inserted beneath the gum and takes the place of the root.
  • The dental crown, which restores the dental implant.
  • An abutment that connects the implant and its crown.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants

The process for traditional dental implants can take anywhere from four to eight months to complete. First, the implant is surgically placed beneath the gum, and after healing has occurred several months later, the connecting abutment is placed. The implant is restored soon after.

For patients who are missing an entire row of teeth, securing a denture with traditional dental implants or individual crowns would be highly invasive and time consuming, not to mention very costly. All-on-4 offers a wonderful alternative.

All-on-4 dental implants are longer than the traditional variety, so there is no need for a connecting abutment to connect the crown and the implant. Using precise surgical guides, your dentist places each implant with a highly strategic approach. By inserting the All-on-4 dental implants at an angle in the mouth, your dentist ensures they draw maximum support from the jawbone for a sturdy, complete smile.

Unlike with traditional dental implants, restoration of All-on-4 dental implants or Teeth In a Day can occur immediately after the placement of the implants, or very soon after — so you get to enjoy your new, complete smile in no time.

Benefits of Teeth In a Day

Patients who have lost all of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw enjoy a multitude of benefits when they choose the Teeth In a Day replacement option. Some of the most considerable advantages of All-on-4 include:

  • Same-day restoration
  • Costs less than placing individual dental implants
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Can secure an existing denture
  • Often eliminates the need for time-consuming preparatory procedures
  • Restored ability to eat, speak, and smile
