All On 4 Q&A

What are All-on-4 dental implants?

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.

Who is a candidate for All-on-4 dental implants?

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.

What’s the process for getting All-on-4 dental implants?

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.

What is recovery like after getting All-on-4 implants?

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.

How do I care for my All-on-4 implants?

You care for All-on-4 implants like they’re your natural teeth. The Smile Boutique recommends:

  • Brushing twice daily
  • Flossing regularly
  • Visiting the dentist every six months
  • Avoiding habits like nail biting and chewing on ice cubes

With proper care, dental implants are permanent tooth replacements.
