The Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants

Losing multiple permanent teeth can impair your dental and overall health and lower your self-confidence. If you’ve lost any teeth, dental implants are the restoration solution that most naturally bring back the functioning and appearance of your smile.

If your tooth loss extends to several teeth in the same area, Sean Pierce, DDS, of Pierce Robotics in Beverly Hills, California, can handily restore an entire portion of your smile at once using the All-On-4® implants. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of this revolutionary technique and whether it’s right for you.

Understanding All-On-4 implants

All-On-4 implants work just like traditional dental implants, except that instead of replacing an individual tooth, they replace an entire section of missing teeth with four implants. Before the adoption of this advanced technique, you would have needed to replace your missing teeth with individual implants.

Thanks to the exceptional All-On-4 technique, Dr. Pierce can instead replace an entire arch of missing teeth at once. This gives you the same benefits of traditional dental implants, but with greater convenience and at a reduced cost.

The All-On-4 implant benefits

All-On-4 implants come with a number of advantages. These are some of the main ways you’ll benefit from replacing lost teeth with All-On-4 implants.

Functions just like your natural teeth

Like individual dental implants, All-On-4 implants are the most natural replacement for your teeth. They’re fixed permanently into your gums, which saves you the hassle of having to take out dentures at night or deal with adhesives to keep in false teeth.

Once inserted, All-On-4 implants function just like your original teeth, giving them a natural appearance and making it easy to speak and chew. Dental implants are also the only teeth replacement solution that promotes gum and bone health.

Convenience

Getting All-On-4 implants is more convenient than individual implants when you have multiple teeth to replace. Instead of getting individual implants over multiple appointments, you can have your full area of missing teeth replaced by Dr. Pierce in just two appointments.

Cost savings

Your All-On-4 implants are usually less expensive than getting multiple individual implants. All-On-4 typically costs less than getting an equivalent number of individual implants.

Comfort

All-On-4 implants fit into your gums and work exactly like your previous teeth. This makes them feel natural and comfortable in your mouth at all times.

Long-lasting

There’s usually no need to replace All-on-4 dental implants. When properly taken care of with good oral hygiene, they typically last for a lifetime.

Getting All-On-4 implants

Dr. Pierce starts the process by ensuring you’re a good candidate for All-On-4 implants through performing an examination and taking 3-D digital X-rays of your jaw and bone. Once you’re approved, getting All-On-4 dental implants takes two visits.

At the first visit, Dr. Pierce takes digital impressions of your mouth after doing an oral exam. The impressions get sent to a laboratory where techs create implant-retained dentures Dr. Pierce attaches to your implants.

The second appointment takes place under local anesthesia. At this appointment, Dr. Pierce places four posts in your gum, followed by placing four implants into the post and your implant-retained dentures.

If you’re missing additional teeth, Dr. Pierce repeats the process on your other jaw. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Pierce provides you with detailed after-care instructions and sends you home with a family member or friend.
