the All-on-4® Dental Implant Solution
ALL-ON-4® dental implants allow for a full-arch prosthesis to be permanently attached to both of your jaws. During the surgery, you can have your entire top or bottom row of teeth, or both secured with just 4 implants instead of attaching a dental implant for each missing tooth. Two straight implants are placed in the front of the mouth, and two are positioned at 45-degree angles in the back of the mouth.
Temporary teeth will be put on the implants. Over the next couple of months, the bone fuses around the implant, and the final prosthesis is created with customized teeth that have the shape and color or your own. It is generally made in acrylic denture teeth, however, high-quality porcelain or zirconia are available options. Once implants are fully secured and the healing process is finished (3 to 6 months), your permanent teeth that look and feel like your own will be attached.
