What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
If you need to replace an entire arch of missing or severely damaged teeth, All-on-4® dental implants from Nobel Biocare may be the solution for you. All-on-4 dental implants provide patients with a highly convenient, innovative option for full arch tooth replacements.

With All-on-4 full-arch restoration, you can easily enjoy restored biting and chewing power and a gorgeous, natural-looking smile. You can eat what you like and smile with confidence without worrying about your tooth replacement slipping or causing discomfort.

Are All-on-4 Implants Right for Me?
All-on-4 dental implants may be ideal for both the upper and lower arches. This revolutionary tooth replacement option includes four dental implant posts placed securely within your jawbone and a full arch denture appliance that is created to fit your facial shape and jaw specifically. You may be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 implants if you have lost an entire arch of teeth, have teeth that cannot be restored and require extraction, or wish to trade your removable denture for an option that is more permanent. All-on-4 offers a strong biting function and delivers a natural look to your smile.
Replacing your teeth with All-on-4 implants can greatly enhance your self-confidence and create a more youthful appearance. Unlike most implant solutions, All-on-4 can often be suitable even when jawbone loss has affected your mouth. Many patients choose this option over traditional removable dentures as tooth replacement with All-on-4 does not limit the foods you eat nor does it need a special cleaning solution or require adhesive to stay in place.
Since the All-on-4 implant procedure is completed in a single day, patients enjoy the immediate results this option brings to their lifestyle and appearance. If you would like to enjoy the long-term advantages of All-on-4 dental implants, set up a consultation with our team today and see if this might be a good fit for you.

How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Work?
To plan the best locations for your All-on-4 dental implants, we will take 3D intraoral scans of your mouth and jaw. This valuable technology provides detailed information regarding your jawbone and other oral structures and is used to plan your implant treatment. On the day of your procedure, we will numb treatment areas and can offer sedation services to make sure you enjoy a relaxed and stress-free visit. Our periodontist will place your All-on-4 implants within your jaw. Once your implant surgery is complete, a temporary tooth replacement will be attached to your implants by one of our general dentists. Your temporary teeth offer immediate function and aesthetic appeal and will be worn until your implants integrate fully with your jaw (over the course of 3 – 6 months). After this osseointegration process is complete, we will have you return to our office so that we can create and attach your permanent denture appliance to your All-on-4 implants, finalizing your tooth replacement procedure.
What Happens After Dental Implant Surgery?
You may be surprised to learn that receiving dental implants is a relatively minimally invasive process. However, you may notice a little swelling or discomfort in your mouth immediately following your implant surgery. To make certain you remain comfortable during this time, our dentists may give you a prescription for pain medication or suggest using over-the-counter pain relievers. We will provide specific instructions on how to manage your oral health during the recovery phase following your treatment. All-on-4 dental implants are cared for in a similar fashion to natural teeth with regular daily brushing and flossing and routine dental exam and cleaning visits at Made Ya Smile Dental. During your visits, our dental team will check the health of your jaw, gums, and implant sites and ensure your tooth replacement is still meeting your oral health needs.
Are All-on-4 Implants Covered by Insurance?
Made Ya Smile Dental accepts most major PPO dental insurance plans and can submit your claims on your behalf. To learn about your coverage for All-on-4 dental implants, a member of our team will contact your provider for specific plan details. We strive to help all patients get the care they need for better quality living and can help you find a payment solution that fits comfortably within your budget. Our business team is happy to review our convenient payment options and can provide information on third- party financing solutions.
