All-on-4 implants are custom restorations used to replace a full arch of teeth. Unlike traditional implants that require one metal post for each missing tooth, All-on-4 implants use four posts to support a full arch. This means less surgery, quicker recovery times, and increased convenience.
All-on-4 implants present a variety of advantages, including:
All-on-4 implants are also convenient. They snap into place and stay there. This means you don’t have to worry about messy or sticky adhesives like you do with dentures.
Getting All-on-4 implants begins with an initial consultation. During this appointment, the team conducts an oral exam, reviews your oral health history, and asks you about your goals for treatment.
Next, they take digital X-rays of your teeth and gums to measure your bone volume and to look for signs of infection. If your teeth and gums are healthy and you have plenty of bone volume, they move forward with treatment.
The second step in the All-on-4 implant treatment process is surgery. Before placing your implants, the team administers a local anesthetic to numb your gums and mouth. Once the anesthesia sets in, they surgically place a series of implants — four on your top arch and four on your bottom arch — into small incisions in your gumline.
Following surgery, you return home and your mouth heals. While your mouth heals, your bone grows around the implants, fusing them to your jaw.
Several months later, you return to Dental Arts of Beverly Hills. At this appointment, your provider takes impressions of your gums and sends the impressions to a lab that manufacturers the base for your All-on-4 prosthetics.
Once this process is complete, your provider attaches your new arches to your implants. You leave the office with a vibrant, radiant smile.
You care for your All-on-4 implants like you would your natural teeth. To keep them in great shape, the team recommends brushing and flossing daily and visiting Dental Arts of Beverly Hills every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning.
