What Are ALL-ON-4 Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants allow for a full-arch prosthesis to be permanently attached to the jaw. Instead of getting a dental implant for each individual missing tooth, you can get your entire top or bottom row of teeth with just 4 implants. Two straight implants are placed in the front, while two are positioned at a 45-degree angle in the back. This allows for the use of all your natural available bone instead of relying on grafts to bolster the underlying jawbone. All-on-4 implants can be placed on just the upper or lower arch, or both.

Unlike dentures, All-on-4s are secured in place, don’t have to be removed, and don’t need adhesive. This makes it easier to eat, stimulate bone growth, clean like natural teeth, and allows them to last a lifetime. All-on-4 provides stability and lasting effectiveness to the everyday functions of your teeth.


Other benefits of All-on-4s include comfort because All-on-4s don’t push down on gums. They also prevent bone deterioration, restore facial feature and muscle tone, and are cost-effective.

What’s involved in the All-on-4 procedure at Awesome Dentistry?

  • During your consultation, we’ll create a customized treatment plan and use state-of-the-art Pre-Operative diagnostic aids (CT Scan planning).
  • All-on-4 dental implants are placed on the top arch, the bottom arch or both during surgery.
  • Temporary dentures will be put on the implants. Osseointegration will occur over the next few months.
  • The final prosthesis will be created at our office.
  • Once the implants are fully secured and the healing process is finished (3 to 6 months), your permanent dentures will be attached.
Who Should Get All-On-4s?
Those who currently wear dentures or will need them in the future should consider All-on-4s. Ideal candidates should also have teeth healthy enough for immediate loading of implants.
How Should I Care For All-On-4 Implants?
You should treat your All-on-4s as you would natural teeth, which includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. Be gentle but thorough, just as you should with your natural teeth.
