If you’ve lost most or all of your permanent teeth to extractions, injury, or poor oral hygiene, All-on-4® dental implants can restore your smile. At The Smile Boutique in Phoenix, Arizona, our oral surgeon and general dentist specializes in placing and restoring All-on-4 dental implants. Also called full-mouth rehabilitation, the treatment is pain-free, presents no risk of infection, and offers permanent tooth replacement. Call the office today to request an All-on-4 consultation, or book your appointment online.
All-on-4 dental implants are small titanium posts that an oral surgeon inserts into your upper or lower jaw.
All-on-4 implants are a safer, less painful alternative to traditional dental implants. Instead of inserting a single implant into each missing tooth socket, your Smile Boutique provider places four implants at specific points in your jaw.
All-on-4 implants are “immediate load,” meaning you can eat with them right after placement. Moreover, All-on-4 implants require no bone grafting, which makes them appropriate for most patients.
Your Smile Boutique provider reviews your dental records, completes an oral exam, and takes 3D X-rays using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). About 95% of people with or without teeth qualify for All-on-4 treatment.
Before moving forward with surgery, your provider takes scans of your mouth. They then develop a virtual implant placement plan that allows you to see your results beforehand.
At the end of the visit, your provider sends your scans to a dental lab that manufactures a set of implant-anchored dentures.
When the lab completes your implant-anchored dentures, you return to The Smile Boutique for the implant-placement procedure.
Your Smile Boutique provider numbs your mouth with a local anesthetic and inserts four dental implants into your upper or lower jaw. The implants immediately integrate with your bone, providing a base for implant-anchored dentures.
Your provider attaches the dentures to the All-on-4 implants and checks your bite. They adjust them to ensure a perfect fit and provide recovery and care instructions.
After getting All-on-4 implants, it’s normal to experience mild swelling and sensitivity. There’s little risk of infection or pain, and any discomfort should improve within a day or two.
Like dentures, speaking with All-on-4 implants takes some practice. But most people adjust within a week.
You care for All-on-4 implants like they’re your natural teeth. The Smile Boutique recommends:
With proper care, dental implants are permanent tooth replacements.
