All On Four Treatment FAQ


The All-on-4 treatment is a dental procedure that involves replacing all missing teeth in an arch with a fixed prosthesis supported by four dental implants.

Unlike traditional dentures, which are removable and rest on the gums, the All-on-4 treatment uses dental implants to support a fixed prosthesis. This provides better stability, function, and aesthetics compared to removable dentures.

The treatment duration can vary depending on individual cases, but in general, the All-on-4 procedure can be completed in a few appointments spread over a few months. This includes initial consultation, implant placement surgery, healing period, and final prosthesis placement.

Dental implants have a high success rate and are considered safe. However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. It’s important to discuss your medical history and any concerns with our dental professional before undergoing the All-on-4 treatment.

The All-on-4 treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Afterward, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and proper post-operative care.

All-on-4 prostheses require regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing. Our dentist will provide specific instructions on how to clean your prosthesis effectively. Regular dental check-ups are also important to monitor the health of your implants and prosthesis.

The All-on-4 treatment is suitable for many patients who have missing teeth or those with deteriorated oral health. However, a thorough evaluation by a dental professional is necessary to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. Factors such as bone density, overall health, and specific dental conditions will be considered.

Recovery time for implants normally goes from three to eight months, however with All-on-6 inserts, you’ll probably recover much sooner.

All-on-4 dental implants are meant to be a permanent dental solution. Your implants can last 20 years or even more with proper care.
