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.
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.

Common Questions About All-on-4 Implants
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.
