All-on-4 Dental Implants | Boerne

Rebuild Your Entire Smile

If you’ve lost all your teeth, you can improve your overall health and permanently restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently with All-on-4 implants from Complete Dental Studio.

Using these innovative implants, Dr. Alghadban can replace an entire arch of teeth on the bottom or top of your mouth to rebuild your smile and restore function to your bite.

What Are All-on-4 Implants?

All-on-4 implants are a revolutionary type of full-mouth dental implant requiring fewer implant posts surgically inserted into your jawbone, resulting in a much faster treatment than the traditional implant-supported denture procedure.

How All-on-4 Implants Work

All-on-4 implants work similarly to regular dental implants. They still require a dentist or oral surgeon to surgically insert tiny metal rods into your jawbone. The implants will support a set of permanent dentures instead of a crown. And you’ll need to wait a few months for the rods to successfully fuse to your bone tissue.

The difference between All-on-4 implants and traditional full-mouth dental implants is that All-on-4 implants only require four implant posts strategically placed inside your mouth — instead of one implant per tooth.

This not only results in a much faster osseointegration process, but unlike traditional dental implants, your dentist can provide you with a set of temporary dentures for you to wear while waiting for your implants to fully fuse to your bone.

That means you can walk out of our Boerne office on the same day as your implant procedure with a full set of teeth. Dr. Alghadban will then schedule a follow-up procedure to install your permanent dentures once they’re ready.

The All-on-4 Advantage

Let’s take an in-depth look at some of the benefits of All-on-4 dental implants.

Easy Care

Unlike with traditional dentures, you won’t remove your All-on-4 implants. You simply brush and floss your new teeth as you normally would.

Permanent Solution to Tooth Loss

If you properly care for your teeth and practice good hygiene to prevent gum disease, your dental implants can last for several decades — or even a lifetime.

Teeth Shifting Prevention

When you’re missing a tooth, it’s natural for your other teeth to shift in place to fill in the gap. An implant prevents this from happening by keeping your teeth straight and your bite properly aligned.

No Slipping

Other tooth replacement options — such as bridges and removable dentures — can move and slip inside your mouth. But because implants are fused to your jawbone, they stay put.

Shorter Treatment

Because All-on-4 implants only require our dentist to surgically insert four posts into your jawbone — instead of one post per tooth — your implants won’t take as long to fuse to your jawbone.

All-on-4 implants also allow you to use temporary dentures as soon as your procedure is over, so you don’t have to wait until your permanent replacement teeth are ready before you can enjoy a restored bite and smile.

Strong Bite Force

Dental implants allow you to use the same bite force as you would with natural teeth. This isn’t the case with bridges and dentures, since they sit on top of the gums and are not inserted in the jawbone the way that implants are.

Preventing Bone Loss

If you’re missing several teeth, you’ve most likely experienced bone loss as well. Implants prevent this from happening by stimulating your jawbone and increasing bone density.

Are All-on-4 Implants Right for You?

All-on-4 implants are very much like getting a brand new set of natural teeth. But it’s important to keep in mind that these innovative full-mouth dental implants may not be the best choice for everyone.

However, if any of the following conditions apply to you, then you might be a good candidate for All-on-4 implants:

  • You’re currently missing all of your upper teeth, your lower teeth, or both your upper and lower teeth.
  • Your jawbone is strong enough to support the implants.
  • Your overall health is good, and you’re capable of undergoing a bone-grafting procedure if necessary.
  • You practice good oral hygiene habits daily.
  • You currently wear conventional dentures but are unhappy with your appliance.

If you fall into one of the above categories, schedule an appointment at our Boerne office today. Dr. Alghadban and our team will meet with you to diagnose your current condition, assess your needs, and discuss your concerns to determine if All-on-4 implants are the right choice for you.
