For the all on 4, this dental implants procedure uses four implants, with the back implants angulated to take maximum advantage of existing bone. Special implants also were developed that could support the immediate fitting of replacement teeth. This treatment is attractive to those with dentures or in need of full upper and/or lower restorations
On the day of your procedure your restorative dentist will place the dental implants and a new set of teeth called a “long-term provisional” prosthesis. This provisional set of teeth is fixed in place, is fully functional, and provides you with a beautiful smile. You will laugh, talk, play sports, and be normally active, without having to worry about your teeth.
This provisional set of teeth is made entirely of acrylic resin, which places less stress on your new implants during their first few months of use. We will ask you to be selective in the foods you eat the first few weeks following your procedure, but you will soon be back to a normal diet (without hard, tough, or brittle foods for a while longer).
Once your gum tissues have healed and the dental implants have become completely stable (usually about six months) your restorative dentist will fabricate a permanent bridge with porcelain or zirconia teeth. This permanent set of teeth is carefully adapted to your healed gum tissues and is adjusted to be sure we achieve an ideal fit in your mouth and that your bite and smile are perfect.
Published studies indicate a 98.2% implant success rate when using the All-on-4 technique in the lower jaw. Similar studies show a 97 to 98% success in the upper jaw for the same procedure.
Occasionally, an implant will fail. If this happens, I simply place a new implant in a slightly different position to take advantage of existing bone, and the fixed bridge is adjusted to align with the new implant.
