When patients are experiencing severe tooth loss and/or decay, replacing the entire upper or lower arch may be the solution for you. All-on-4 is an excellent choice for many patients because it is a permanent way to restore facial balance while improving oral health and function. Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery specializes in dental implant-based tooth replacement options like the All-on-4.
All-on-4 uses as few as 4 dental implant posts to secure the prosthesis. The implant posts are surgically placed into the jaw bone, which fuse with the surrounding bone to form a foundation that is permanent and secure.
An entire smile can be restored in a single procedure. With All-on-4, a customized prosthesis is secured onto the dental implant posts on the upper or lower arch. With the All-on-4, patients are able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again!
The procedure to place the four dental implant posts is similar to a single dental implant surgery. First, your oral surgeon will prepare you for surgery by administering the anesthesia that was chosen during the consultation appointment. Once you are relaxed and comfortable, the dental implant posts are surgically placed into the jaw. All-on-4 uses as few as 4 dental implant posts to support an entire upper or lower arch of teeth—the placement of the dental implant posts are strategically planned in advance to provide optimal support. Over the next several weeks, the posts will fuse with the jaw bone. Once your oral surgeon has confirmed that the dental implant posts have successfully integrated with the jaw bone, your permanent, customized prosthesis can be placed. A temporary prosthesis may be placed during the recovery period.
