What is All-on-4?

All-on-4 is a dental implant solution that replaces a full arch of teeth with only four implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that replace natural tooth roots. They hold your prosthetic teeth in place to restore your tooth function and chewing abilities if you have missing teeth.

The All-on-4 approach reduces the time and cost of dental implant surgery while creating a supportive foundation for your replacement teeth.

What is the difference between All-on-4 and traditional dental implants?

Unlike traditional implant procedures that require individual implants for each tooth, the All-on-4 technique uses just four implants to support a full set of upper or lower teeth. The All-on-4 procedure is often less invasive and requires less time for surgery and recovery compared to traditional implant procedures.

What can I expect from All-on-4 implant surgery?

All-on-4 typically requires a local anesthetic and sedation to keep you comfortable. Once your mouth is numb, Dr. Ilyabayev makes small incisions in your gums to strategically place the four implants along the jawbone to provide stable support for an entire arch of replacement teeth. The procedure takes a couple of hours.

You leave Dr. Ilyabayev’s office with a full set of temporary teeth. While your mouth heals, Dr. Ilyabayev uses digital impressions to create your custom-made replacement teeth, which he places at your final visit. The implant-supported device isn’t removable, allowing you to speak clearly and chew comfortably without worrying about slippage or movement.

How should I care for All-on-4 implants?

Caring for All-on-4 implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. These implant-supported restorations look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, so they require no special care. To properly care for All-on-4:

  • Brush twice a day
  • Floss after meals to remove food buildup
  • Invest in a water flosser for hard-to-reach areas
  • Schedule teeth cleanings twice a year
  • Follow post-operative instructions carefully
  • Avoid hard and sticky foods

You can enjoy the benefits of All-on-4 dental implants for more than 20 years with proper care.

All-on-4 allows you to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile with minimal downtime. Call Bayside Dental Arts: Andrey Ilyabayev, DDS, today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
