Learn If You’re Right and Ready to Replace Missing Teeth with All-on-4 Implants

Senior woman in the dental office.

If you have missing teeth, you no longer need to miss out on the confidence and comfort of having a perfect smile. Today, All-on-4® implants can restore your full smile with ease. See if this treatment option is the smile solution for you.

The Case for Candidacy for All-on-4 Implants

While removable dentures were once the only way to replace lost teeth, now All-on-4 implants let you permanently restore your entire smile with a single surgical treatment. Often referred to as All-on-4 dentures, this treatment can replace all of your teeth with only four dental implants. In addition to being faster and easier than other replacement options, All-on-4 implants are considered to be the most practical and efficient form of full smile replacement today. Yet in order to be a candidate, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Need to be missing most or all of your teeth
  • Enough healthy gum tissue to support All-on-4 dentures
  • Sufficient bone density to allow All-on-4 implants to be in the jaw
  • Good medical and dental health

The Commitment to Care and Cleaning

While traditional dentures are removable, All-on-4 dentures are permanently placed into your jawbone for ideal security and comfort. As a result, they require the same regular oral hygiene as natural teeth. Follow these tips to uphold the appearance and strength of your All-on-4 implants:

  1. Maintain excellent oral hygiene at home
  2. Get regular professional check-ups and cleanings
  3. Treat any dental problems as soon as they arise to avoid them affecting the integrity of your All-on-4
