All-on-4 dental implant - What is it?

The All-on-4 dental implant technique is a innovative solution designed to restore an entire arch of teeth using just four implants per jaw. This approach is particularly beneficial for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth and seek a more stable and permanent alternative to traditional dentures. Unlike conventional implants that require multiple implants and sometimes bone grafting, All-on-4 implants utilize strategically placed implants, typically with two implants placed straight and two angled in the posterior of the jaw. This placement maximizes the existing bone structure, reducing the need for additional procedures like bone grafts in many cases.


  • Comprehensive consultation and evaluation, including imaging (e.g., CT scans).
  • Placement of four implants per jaw, typically without the need for bone grafting.
  • Attachment of a temporary set of prosthetic teeth on the same day as the implant surgery.
  • Follow-up visits for adjustments and placement of permanent prosthetic teeth.


  • Suitable for patients missing most or all teeth in one or both jaws.
  • Those seeking a permanent, fixed alternative to removable dentures.
  • Patients with sufficient bone density in the jaw to support the implants.

Key Differences:

  • Fewer implants required compared to traditional methods.
  • Immediate placement of temporary teeth on the same day as surgery.
  • Reduced need for bone grafting due to the strategic placement of implants.

What are the benefits of six monthly cleanings?

The All-on-4 dental implant technique is a revolutionary approach to restoring a full arch of teeth using only four dental implants per jaw. This method was developed to provide a solution for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth and seek a more stable and permanent alternative to traditional dentures. The "All-on-4" name derives from the fact that a full set of prosthetic teeth (an arch of teeth) can be supported by just four strategically placed implants.


What is the difference between all-on-4 and regular dental implants?

Unlike traditional implants, which require more implants and often necessitate bone grafting, the All-on-4 technique utilizes angled implants at the back of the jaw. This takes advantage of the available bone, reducing the need for bone grafting procedures in many cases. Once the implants are placed, a temporary set of prosthetic teeth is attached to the implants immediately after surgery. This allows patients to leave the dental office with a functional set of teeth on the same day as their implant surgery.


What is the process for receiving all-on-4 dental implants?

The process begins with a comprehensive consultation and evaluation by a dentist or oral surgeon. During this phase, the dentist assesses the patient's oral health, bone density, and overall suitability for dental implants. Advanced imaging techniques, such as CT scans, may be used to precisely plan the placement of the implants.


What are the advantages of all on-4-implants?

The advantages of All-on-4 implants are significant. They provide a fixed, stable solution that functions and feels like natural teeth, allowing patients to eat a wide variety of foods comfortably. The streamlined treatment process typically requires less time and fewer appointments compared to traditional implant methods. Additionally, All-on-4 implants can improve facial appearance and restore proper speech and chewing function, enhancing both oral health and overall quality of life for patients who have lost multiple teeth. This technique has revolutionized full-arch restoration, offering a reliable and efficient solution for patients seeking a permanent and aesthetically pleasing alternative to removable dentures.
