All-on-4® Dental Implants
Missing an entire arch of teeth can negatively affect all areas of your life, from proper nutrition to your sense of self-confidence.
At Norwalk Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we offer All-on-4® treatment, which allows us to place a full denture using only four implants.
All-on-4 Offers the Benefits of Implants in a Shorter Timeline
This procedure is a unique implant solution that allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 implants as “anchors”. This technique offers many advantages over traditional dentures. Easy to care for, this solution can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors. Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures. Patients can often leave the same day with a full arch of teeth, reducing both overall cost and healing time for the patient.
A Technologically Advanced Solution
All-on-4® is a specialized method of restoring a full arch, using implants as supports. This technique involves placing four implants into the jaw. Because two of the four implants are placed at an angle into the jaw using specially designed implants, even patients with diminished jawbones may be eligible for this treatment option. Two anterior implants are placed vertically and two posterior implants are placed at an angle to take advantage of the existing bone density. This allows the prosthesis, which is fixed to the implants, to be held in place more securely than a traditional denture and using fewer implants than other full arch restorations. All-on-4® implant surgical placement and prosthetic attachment can often be completed in a single day.
