All-on-4® Dental Implants: An Alternative to Dentures
Replace all of your teeth in just ONE day!
• shorter treatment times
• less surgical risk
• lower costs
Many patients who have “soft” teeth caused by advanced cavities, poor gums because of advanced periodontal disease or a bad bite (occlusal disease), find themselves with a diminishing number of options when it comes to restoring their smile one tooth at a time.
Often times, patients find themselves with a “terminal dentition” through no fault of their own. Medication side effects, medical conditions and genetics all play significant roles in the deterioration of a smile. For most patients with a terminal dentition, the dreaded prospect of needing a removable full set of dentures is very real.
For patients with terminal dentition, a full mouth tooth extraction and dentures are typically what is prescribed. For years, this was the only option.
Patients who may be candidates for full dentures often fear the embarrassment of having missing teeth, bad breath or dentures that can fall out at any time. They often suffer for years with denture soreness, loss of taste sensation, compromised bites and loss of a confident smile. In addition, there is always the fear of embarrassment of being seen without their dentures.
Is there another solution? All-on-4® implants could be the answer.
All-on-4® is a treatment option for replacing all of your teeth on the upper or lower jaw, with just four dental implants. Yes, it is possible to replace all of your teeth in just ONE day. In 1998 Dr. Paulo Malo successfully treated the first patient with the All-on-4® treatment concept. Since then hundreds of thousands of patients have been treated with this concept.

Benefits of All-on-4® Implants: Some of the amazing benefits of this process are not only a fixed in position, full arch of teeth on the day of surgery, but shorter treatment times, rapid improvement in the quality of life, less surgical risk and lower costs than conventional treatment modalities.
With proper planning, implants can be placed at angles to avoid interferences with sinuses and nerves thereby reducing the surgical risk but also avoiding costly sinus and nerve relocation surgeries.
Additionally, supporting a full arch of teeth on four implants helps to maintain bone and tissue levels thereby reducing the need for tissue and bone grafting. Unlike natural roots that support teeth, implants don’t split, need root canals and won’t decay. For those with a terminal dentition, this predictability and durability greatly reduce the risk of long-term and ongoing costs.
