All-on-4 dental implants provide a new and exciting alternative for patients considering dentures or solutions for extensive dental problems. The All-on-Four approach utilizes four dental implant anchors to support a fixed, non-removable prosthesis. This can only be removed by a dentist. This way teeth affected by disease can be replaced with a beautiful prosthetic set.

Rather than living with the constant hassle and preoccupation that comes with owning and wearing a set of dentures, more and more people are choosing to go with the stronger long-term solution of All-On-Four dental implant restorations. Bedford Dental Group has the cutting-edge technology and dexterity to perform this procedure with exceptional results.

What are All-On-Four Dental Implants?

The All-On-Four dental implant surgery is a cosmetic dental procedure for individuals with missing teeth or significant tooth decay. This method involves the strategic placement of four dental implants in the upper and/or lower jaw to support a full arch of prosthetic teeth. A key feature of this technique is the ability to use the natural bone structure without requiring bone grafts, even in patients with minimal bone volume. The implants are placed in areas of the jaw with higher bone density, two in the front and two at the back at an angle, to maximize support and leverage the existing bone structure.

All-On-Four dental implants offer several long-term benefits, including improved oral health and bone preservation. By stimulating the jawbone, similar to natural tooth roots, these implants help to prevent bone loss that typically occurs with tooth loss. This stimulation is crucial for maintaining facial structure and oral health. Furthermore, these dental implants support a fixed prosthesis that is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, providing patients with a natural-looking set of teeth.

While traditional dental implants also replace missing teeth, the All-On-Four dental implant procedure differs significantly in its approach and application. Traditional implants often require one implant per missing tooth, leading to a more extensive surgical process, potentially involving bone grafts for patients with insufficient bone volume. In contrast, the All-On-Four implant dentistry utilizes only four implants per arch, reducing the need for bone grafting and minimizing the number of surgeries required. This approach also allows for immediate loading of the prosthesis in many cases, meaning patients can leave with a set of functional teeth on the same day of surgery.

Ideal candidates for All-On-Four cosmetic dentistry are individuals with significant tooth loss or decay, who are seeking an alternative to dentures or multiple individual implants. Candidates should have sufficient bone density to support the implants; however, due to the strategic placement of the implants, many patients who are not candidates for traditional implants due to bone loss may still qualify for All-On-Four. A comprehensive examination by a dental professional is necessary to determine candidacy.

Patients with existing health conditions or insufficient bone density require careful evaluation before undergoing the All-On-Four procedure. While the technique is designed to minimize the need for bone grafting, some patients may still require additional procedures to ensure the implants can be securely placed. Conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, significant heart disease, or severe osteoporosis may affect healing and implant success. A thorough assessment by a dental professional, including a medical history review and diagnostic imaging, is essential to determine if All-On-Four is a suitable option.


 

The Procedure

The first step involves a comprehensive dental examination, including dental x-rays and sometimes a CT scan to evaluate the patient’s oral health, bone density, and to plan the implant placement. From the information gathered, the dentist comes up with a customized treatment plan. Advanced imaging technology helps in planning the precise location for implant placement to maximize the use of the existing bone structure without the need for bone grafts.

Any remaining teeth in the affected arch are extracted, and the mouth is prepared for the implant placement. This preparation might include minor adjustments to the bone structure to ensure optimal implant integration. For the procedure, four dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone—two straight implants in the front and two angled implants in the back to maximize the use of the available bone structure. This strategic angling is crucial for avoiding the sinus cavities in the upper jaw and the nerve canal in the lower jaw.

On the same day as the implant placement, a temporary fixed prosthesis is attached to the implants. This allows patients to leave the dental office with a functional set of teeth while the implants integrate with the jawbone, a process known as osseointegration.

The patient undergoes a healing period that typically lasts several months, allowing for osseointegration to occur. During this time, patients are advised to follow a soft diet to facilitate healing. Once osseointegration is complete, the temporary prosthesis is replaced with a permanent, custom-made prosthesis. This final prosthesis is designed to match the natural appearance of the patient’s gums and teeth, providing a long-lasting and aesthetic solution.

Before undergoing the All-On-Four procedure, patients must undergo thorough evaluations to ensure they are suitable candidates. This includes assessing overall health, oral health, bone density, and any potential risk factors that could affect the success of the implants. Patients might also be required to undergo dental cleanings and address any outstanding oral health issues.

Advanced technology plays a crucial role in the All-On-Four procedure, from planning to execution. Digital imaging techniques, such as CT scans, provide detailed insights into the patient’s bone structure, allowing for precise implant placement. Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technologies are used to create temporary and permanent prostheses, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance.

One of the most significant advantages of the All-On-Four procedure is the immediate improvement in dental function and aesthetics. Patients can leave the dental office with a full set of teeth on the same day as their surgery, allowing for immediate restoration of their ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. Over time, as the final prosthesis is placed, these benefits are enhanced, providing a permanent solution that closely mimics natural teeth in both function and appearance.

How A Single
Implant Works


First, we should explain how an implant works, for those who don’t know. We implant a small titanium screw that fits snugly into your jawbone, replacing the root of your tooth. Titanium is fully biocompatible, making it a strong-suited material for the treatment. Minor surgery is necessary to insert the implant, but once the implant is in place, a dental crown is positioned to give you the most realistic-looking prosthetic tooth. Your implant and crown will improve the functionality of your teeth and jawbone. This will also promote important bone stimulation to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Potential Risks and Complications

Although rare, there is a risk that the implants may not properly integrate with the jawbone, leading to failure. This risk is higher in patients who smoke or have certain medical conditions. As with any surgery, there is also a risk of infection. Proper post-operative care is crucial to minimize this risk.

Incorrect implant placement can lead to nerve damage, causing numbness or tingling in the jaw, lips, or gums. Issues such as poor fit, fracture, or wear of the prosthesis can also occur, requiring adjustments or replacements.

Although the All-On-Four procedure is designed to help prevent bone loss by providing stimulation similar to natural teeth, ongoing bone loss can still occur, potentially affecting the stability of the implants.

A comprehensive examination, including detailed imaging studies, helps to plan the procedure meticulously and identify any potential issues before surgery. Adhering to the dentist’s instructions for care after the procedure can significantly reduce the risk of complications such as infection or implant failure.

Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential to maintain the health of the implants and surrounding tissues. Lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking and controlling diabetes, can improve the success rate of dental implants.

The Importance of Choosing an Experienced Dental Implant Specialist

Selecting a dentist or oral surgeon with extensive experience and a proven track record in implant dentistry, particularly with the All-On-Four procedure, cannot be overstated. An experienced specialist will:

  • Have a deep understanding of the procedure, including how to avoid potential complications.

  • Use advanced technology for precise planning and execution of the implant placement.
