All-on-4® Dental Implants: Why They May Be Right for You

All-on-4® Dental Implants: Why They May Be Right for You

Posted By Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center || 7-Nov-2014

Missing teeth can have a strongly negative effect on a person's ability to enjoy life. Unless you are comfortable with your smile, how can you laugh and experience joy to the fullest? That is one of many reasons why All-on-4® dental implants may be right for you. San Diego implant dentist Dr. Roya Mirkhan has performed this procedure countless of times for her patients at Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center.

What are All-on-4® dental implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are a trademark of Nobel Biocare®. The procedure involves a full arch replacement that is far superior to standard dentures. All-on-4 implants consist of a customized full-arch prosthesis that is attached to the patient's jawline using four titanium implants.

This process may sound daunting, but the truth is that All-on-4 is a faster and less-invasive form of full arch replacement. The procedure is rated as one of the best when it comes to patient comfort and long-term satisfaction. Patients receive their fixed full-arch prosthesis on the same day as their surgery, minimizing the number of appointments, office visits and procedures. You will walk in with missing teeth and walk out with a full, comfortable, and lasting smile!

Why not just get dentures?

Before dental implants became available, the only option for full arch replacement was dentures. These are not sturdy, nor are they comfortable since food often gets lodged underneath. Dental implants are a sturdy and far more permanent alternative to dentures, allowing your prosthesis to be attached directly to your jaw using titanium screws and implants.

Dentures vs. Implants

  • Dentures – Insecure
  • Implants – Permanent
  • Dentures – Uncomfortable
  • Implants – Comfortable

Bone Augmentation – Get Your Beautiful Smile No Matter Your Bone Type

Most other forms of dental implants require patients to have dense bone in their jawline due to the titanium implants. The All-on-4 procedure only requires four implants for the entire prosthesis, which makes these dental implants possible for nearly anyone.

With the All-on-4 procedure, Dr. Roya Mirkhan can perform bone augmentation or "bone grafting" for patients with thin jawbones, allowing patients of all bone types to get dental implants. Dr. Mirkhan is very experienced in bone grafting and is highly-recognized for her work in this area.
