All-on-4 Q & A

What is All-on-4 implants?

All-On-4 implants are an implant-supported denture system that makes your replacement teeth more steady and secure with just four dental implants. Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to secure your dentures to your jaw. By strategically placing your implants, your dentist can help protect your bone structure and keep your jawbone healthy and strong.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are small posts that your dentist embeds in your jaw. They’re made from biocompatible materials, which enables them to fuse with your jawbone and function as artificial tooth roots. Just like a tooth root, a dental implant provides a strong foundation for a tooth replacement, like dentures.

Why should I get All-on-4 implants?

All-On-4 implants have several benefits, including:

  • More secure than suction- or adhesive-based dentures
  • Easier to speak and chew
  • Makes your dentures feel less bulky in your mouth

The biggest benefit of All-on-4 implants, however, is that they provide healthy stimulation to your jawbone. Because your dental implants are connected directly into the bone tissue, they help to keep your bone healthy and strong and prevent the deterioration or resorption that can sometimes happen with traditional dentures. This helps to maintain the shape and appearance of your facial features. 

What are the steps in getting All-on-4 implants?

First, the team at Insight Dentistry places your dental implants. This involves a minor surgery where your dentist embeds the implant in your jawbone.

After you’ve healed from your implant surgery and your implant has fused with the bone tissue in your jaw, your dentist fits you with an abutment. Your abutment is a tiny rod that connects to your implant, sticks up out of your gums, and eventually attaches to your dentures.

Once your abutment is set, your dentist takes a digital impression of your smile, which is sent to a lab that uses it to fabricate your dentures. When your dentures are ready, your dentist seals them to your abutments.
