Until the 3 on 6™ came along, the All-on-4 had been the dental restoration procedure of choice for edentulous patients (without teeth). We generally encourage patients who are pursuing a full mouth restoration to consider the 3 on 6™ but for some patients their level of bone loss disqualifies them as a candidate. In those cases, the All-on-4 is the next best option because it can be placed in scenarios where the patient has already sustained significant bone loss.
How it Works
Step 1: Free Consultation
Everything begins with a free consultation in our office. We will take scans of your mouth which we use to determine if you are a candidate for the All-on-4. At this initial consultation, we will go over payment and financing options with you and determine if and when you would like to begin treatment.
Step 2: Implant Surgery
At the following appointment, the implant surgery will take place. This can be done with local anesthesia or you can choose to be sedated. After this surgery, the implants will need to heal for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. During this time you will receive a temporary denture so that you are not toothless while you heal. Our dental lab will use scans of your teeth or pre-designed models to design your new smile. You will have input on the design including the shade of the teeth.
Step 3: Restoration
After your implants are healed, you will have your All-on-4 restoration placed. You will leave our office with a beautiful new smile that you can bite, chew, and smile with confidently.
