All-on-4 Dental Implants

Damaged and missing teeth can seriously harm your health and confidence.

All-on-4® implants are a widely popular option for restoring smiles and self-esteem.

Learn more about this advanced treatment offered by Dr. Andy Maples and the West Lake Dental team in Loveland, CO. 

What Are All-on-4 Implants?

Dental implants are metal posts that act as tooth roots, creating strong support to help replace missing or damaged teeth. All-on-4 is an advanced dental implant technique that can replace a full arch of teeth using just four implants. Your implant-supported denture will look and work just like natural teeth.


Some patients have suffered too much bone loss to receive traditional implants. A huge advantage of the All-on-4 technique is that it allows many of these patients to receive the dental implants they deserve.


The All-on-4 method utilizes acrylic and plastic for restorations. Our practice also offers a zirconia option that provides porcelain-like teeth with as few as five implants per full arch. Zirconia is growing in popularity for restorative dentistry because of its strength and durability.

Major Advantages of All-on-4 Implants

A Simpler Solution

Lost tissue in the jawbone prohibits many patients from receiving traditional implants unless they also undergo bone grafting. The All-on-4 method allows dentists to provide implants by utilizing remaining tissue without necessitating bone grafting. 

An Affordable Alternative

All-on-4 implants often cost less than traditional implant-supported dentures. This is because they require significantly less dental implants and avoid costly extra preparation procedures like bone grafting.

Swifter Service

The All-on-4 technique takes less time and requires less surgery than traditional methods. In addition to quicker procedures, with All-on-4 there is only one healing period instead of the typical two. This method provides a full smile faster since a temporary denture can be placed soon after surgery. 

All-on-4 Implant Pathway 

The dental implant process consists of several appointments and procedures. Time invested now pays off later since dental implants can last a lifetime.

Initial Evaluation

Your dentist will examine you to make sure you are a strong candidate for dental implant surgery. Dr. Maples will evaluate your teeth, gums, jawbone strength, and investigate any potential periodontal disease.

Implant Placement

Your dentist makes surgical incisions in your gums and places your chosen dental implants. We offer oral sedation and take great care to ensure that you will be relaxed and comfortable throughout surgery. 

Temporary Denture

Short-term dentures will be attached to your new implants. You will walk out of our office with a new and improved smile. With these dentures you will be able to eat and speak throughout your healing process while you wait for your final restorations. 

Bone Fusion

The next step is a healing process that may take as few as two months, or sometimes a full six. During this time bone growth occurs around the dental implant, allowing it to truly become a part of your mouth.

Final Restoration

Once the implants have fused with your jawbone, they will be ready to anchor your permanent denture. Your new dentures will look, work, and feel just like beautiful natural teeth.

Common Questions About All-on-4 Implants

It is natural to have questions when you are choosing to undergo a life changing treatment. Here are some of our answers that turn worried people into pleased patients right here in Loveland:

How long will my implants last?

In most cases your implants will last for life, providing a strong foundation for all future dental restorations. All-on-4's last as long as traditional implants, while typically costing less, allowing patients to better afford long-lasting restorations they may want or need.

Am I a good candidate?

Many patients that lack the bone density needed for a traditional implant-supported restoration qualify for the All-on-4 technique. This method requires less existing jaw strength than the traditional version. If you smoke, have diabetes, or gum disease these issues may need to be treated before you receive All-on-4 implants.

Is the procedure painful?

Surgeries and implants can sound scary, however there is no need to worry. Dr. Maples is highly skilled in providing oral conscious sedation dentistry. This method helps alleviate all-too-common dental anxiety and is highly preferred by many patients.
