All-on-4® dental implant therapy is an advanced and innovative procedure used for smile rehabilitation. Consequently, it may also help improve the quality of life for our Wantirna patients with missing teeth who are currently wearing removable prosthetics. This also applies to patients with a degenerative dentition that has a poor prognosis.
With an All-on-4 implant procedure, you can gain the confidence of a fully-functioning smile without a removable prosthesis, such as full dentures. The unique process incorporates the latest dental implant technology, predictability, and support to provide full mouth reconstruction in a predictable and minimally-invasive manner.
The All-on-4 dental implant approach was developed over many years and was more a modification to implants rather than a new invention. Since 1990 experienced implant providers world wide delivered a solution for full mouth rejuvenation that allowed the use of strategically placed implants and a hybrid restoration in lieu of bulky dentures.
Because of the integrity of modern titanium dental implants and the angulation of placement in the posterior jaw, we can place them into weak or thin bone without compromising their supportive capabilities. As a result, you enjoy better biting and chewing forces and reinforce the structures that frame your facial profile.
The results give you a permanent new smile that’s easy to care for and outlasts other popular restorative procedures. The proven success rates ensure the best outcome for your oral health and appearance.
Most All-on-4 implant protocols require 1-3 days for completion, depending on the difficulty of your case. Because each of the four supporting implants are placed in selective locations, there is no or minimal bone grafting necessary (allowing for faster and gentler post-operative recovery.)
After your four implants are installed by one of our experienced Wantirna dentists, we will attach a permanent, full-arch hybrid restoration that spans the entire width of your smile. It will be attached the same day, or 1-2 days after the implant surgery.
This rather straightforward approach brings an invigorating alternative to care, for our patients who want a fixed alternative to removable dentures. All-on-4 treatments are not removable by the patient, instead, they’re a new and permanent part of your best accessory — your smile.
Using innovative implant strategies, we can place a full arch of teeth onto just four or more dental implants.
This rehabilitative method is useful for both upper and lower jaws, depending on your needs. Once completed, your new smile will look and feel as closely to a natural set of teeth as possible.
Thanks to fewer implants being needed (rather than one for each missing tooth,) All-on-4 is easier to clean and maintain while making the overall process as streamlined as possible.
Because our Wantirna dentists are able to strategically place each of the four implants, we can eliminate the need for additional or unnecessary surgeries, such as bone grafting or sinus lifts.
If you’ve lost all of your teeth or need to replace the ones you have, we encourage you to consider full arch rehabilitation with the innovative All-on-4 process.
