All-On-4 Dental Implants
Are you looking for a secure, attractive alternative to traditional dentures? Our Tempe, Arizona dental office offers All-On-4 full mouth dental implants to replace missing teeth. All-On-4 implants provide an excellent alternative to conventional dentures.
What is All-On-4?
All-On-4 treatment combines the complete tooth replacement of dentures with the stability and strength of implants. With All-On-4 treatment, we provide full arch restoration. Teeth are permanently attached to the mouth through 4-6 implants which are secured to the jaw. All teeth are connected to the jaw at the same appointment, allowing you to fully heal and enjoy your new smile in the fewest possible visits.
While All-On-4 is not a bridge, the teeth follow the contour of your bite like a bridge rather than spanning the roof of your mouth like traditional dentures.
Without bulky plates or fixtures to remove every night, All-On-4 provides the comfort of dentures with the functionality of dental implants.
Benefits of All-On-4 Implants:
Traditional dentures and partials tend to slip during wear, and don’t reliably remain in place while eating or speaking.
Patients who opt for All-On-4 implants experience:
Better Speech - since the implants are attached to the jaw, there’s no need to worry about slippage while speaking.
Long-term Reliability of Dental Implants -Traditional dentures must be replaced every 7-10 years. Designed to provide a lifelong solution, dental implants last decades - and with proper care, many can expect their implants to last a lifetime.
Increased Comfort and Stability - Because the implants integrate with your jaw bone and become a permanent part of your smile, they look and feel similar to natural teeth. The implants are “rooted” into your mouth - you should not feel any slipping or movement once the implants are placed.
No Food Restrictions - Since implants mirror natural teeth, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods. There’s no worrying about bite size or food textures as you would with conventional dentures.
A Permanent Part of Your Mouth - Unlike dentures that require nightly removal, All-On-4 implants remain in your mouth at all times. No awkward nighttime removal or worrying about embarrassing slippage at the wrong time.
Prevent Premature Aging - All-On-4 implants support your facial tissue and prevent your lips and cheeks from sagging. This added support prevents the sagging of your facial tissue - one of the leading signs of aging.
High Success Rate - Using state-of-the-art dentistry techniques, All-On-4 dental implants have a very high success rate. Most patients enjoy a beautiful, strong smile for a lifetime.
What Should I Expect During the All-On-4 Procedure?
Every All-On-4 treatment begins with an initial consultation to confirm you’re a good candidate for implants. During the consultation, we’ll perform an exam and create a specific treatment plan. This plan outlines the exact treatment steps and total cost for the entire process.
We begin treatment by placing implants. Once they’re placed, we provide an interim prosthesis as your implants integrate and your mouth heals. Following the healing process, we install your permanent restoration, and you can fully enjoy your beautiful new smile.
How Much Do All-On-4 Implants Cost?
The exact cost of All-On-4 implants depends on your specific dental needs and which procedures you’ll need during the implant process, including bone grafts, gum augmentation, extractions, sedation, and which level of restoration you need.
Before treatment, our treatment coordinator creates a plan outlining all treatment steps and costs. This thorough plan will include a specific cost breakdown, including factors such as insurance. When we present the treatment plan, we can discuss financing options and break the cost into monthly payments if desired.
Before beginning treatment, our team will present all information - including the total cost and number of visits.
