For patients who have lost multiple teeth, All-on-4® implants are one of the most advanced dental restoration options available, and their many advantages make them a popular choice. All-on-4 is a type of implant-supported denture that replaces a full arch of missing teeth using just four implants.
Our team at Bucktown Wicker Park Dental takes pride in bringing Chicago patients the latest, most innovative dental options, along with tried-and-true services that keep smiles bright for the entire family. Our compassionate dental providers Melissa Daza, DDS, and Michelle Schwartz, DDS, can help you with everything from routine checkups and cleanings to gum disease treatment and dental restoration.
If you’re missing several teeth, read on to learn how the advantages of All-on-4 implants make it an easy choice!
New smile in a day
Imagine getting an appealing set of replacement teeth in one visit. All-on-4 implants do just that. Patients leave our office with their new smile the same day as their implant procedure. The All-on-4 dental implant procedure maximizes the bone you have available, which allows for immediate function. This makes it possible to have a full restoration in a day.
Our team will attach the new teeth to the newly inserted dental implants during that same appointment, eliminating the need to wait. All-on-4 implants significantly reduce the number of visits and allow you to enjoy your new smile immediately.
Protects and preserves jawbone
When a tooth is missing, biting force is thrown off balance in the area where the gap remains. Even bite force is necessary to keep your jawbone strong and stable. Because All-on-4 dental implants are fused to the jawbone, the underlying bone is less stressed. This helps to keep the jawbone healthy and supports growth.
Maintenance is a breeze
You don't have to remove your dental implants when you’re sleeping or cleaning them because they're attached securely to your jawbone. They function just like your tooth roots, which makes them easy to maintain by simply brushing and flossing daily as you normally would, along with arranging regular dental checkups.
All-on-4 dental implants feel, look, and function like natural teeth. You won’t need to worry about replacing your implants every few years. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. They blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, giving you the confidence to put your best smile forward.
Instead of receiving one implant at a time, All-on-4 dental implants allow you to leave our office with a fully functional and healthier set of teeth. The healing and recuperation process is accelerated because of this.
Strength and stability
Even if your traditional dentures are custom-made to suit your mouth exactly, they can still fall out of place, especially when chewing, speaking, or laughing. All-on-4 implants are implanted into the jawbone, giving them the same strength and durability as your natural teeth. This means you'll be able to chew, speak, and laugh normally and without concern or discomfort.
No bone graft needed
Because All-on-4 dental implants maximize existing bones, a bone graft is unnecessary unless you lack adequate jawbone to support the implant. Traditional implants require a bone graft. Since the four implants are placed at different sites along the jaw where the bone is denser, most patients won’t have problems.
