The Many Benefits of All-on-4® Dental Implants

It’s estimated that as many as 178 million people in the United States are missing at least one tooth, and 40 million are missing all of their teeth. Whether one or all, missing teeth can affect your speech, your ability to eat what you want, and your self-confidence.

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you have many options beyond dentures and bridges. At The Dental Studio, with offices in Summit and Westfield, New Jersey, we can replace your missing teeth using dental implants, which we consider the next best thing to your real teeth.

But if you’re missing several, or even all of your teeth, you may feel a little apprehensive about having several implants surgically placed into your jaw, which can take weeks to months. Well, we have an even better solution.

We can restore a full smile without the need for extensive surgery, a long recovery, or even the need to wait for placement of your new teeth with All-on-4® dental implants. Whether you’re looking for solutions to restore your smile or thinking about replacing your dentures, consider the many benefits All-on-4 implants offer you.

Only four implants

With traditional dental implants, each tooth generally gets its own implant post placed into your jawbone. If you’re missing many teeth, this may mean several surgeries spread out over weeks or months.

But, as you may have guessed by the name, with All-on-4, we only need to place four dental implants to place a full arch of either upper or lower teeth. Each implant is strategically placed to provide the best support and balance in your mouth to securely hold a fixed full-arch prosthesis.

Get your new smile today

Nothing makes us happier than seeing you walk out of our office with an ear-to-ear smile. With All-on-4, we can restore your smile in just one day.

Because of the way the dental implants are placed, there’s no need to wait for the bone tissue to fuse with your implant as you do with traditional dental implants. As soon as we’ve placed your dental implants, we attach the full, natural-looking arch to complete your smile. 

No need for bone grafting

When you’re missing teeth, you’re at greater risk of bone loss because your jawbone is no longer getting stimulation from your tooth. With traditional implants, bone grafting is often required to replace the lost bone before the implant post can be inserted. This adds an additional step, not to mention more time, until you can get a complete smile makeover.

The All-on-4 system is designed so bone grafting isn’t necessary, yet you still get a secure, permanent fit. This is because the dental implants we inserted in the back of your mouth are placed at an angle, which allows us to use more of your natural bone. This means we don’t have to do any bone grafting, and it also makes for a more secure fit. 

Eat, drink, and be merry

The reason we consider dental implants the next best thing to your own teeth is because they’re as secure and strong as your natural teeth. They’re comfortable, you don’t have to think twice about eating the corn on the cob, and they look just like your natural teeth.

Like traditional dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants are permanent. You can eat without worry and socialize with friends and family without concerns about garbled speech or your teeth falling into your dinner plate. Plus, All-on-4 gives you back your confidence and self-esteem.
