About All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants from Nobel Biocare™ provide a comprehensive way to secure a complete restoration for full-arch tooth replacement. This procedure works by strategically positioning four dental implants at specific locations within the upper or lower arch, which fuse with the jaw to provide biting strength and stability. Compared to other implant-supported solutions, All-on-4 generally uses fewer implants to provide a secure, stable fit and can be placed even if bone loss in the jaw has occurred. Our general dentists at Avon Dental Group may recommend All-on-4 implants if you are looking for a long-term alternative to dentures or need to replace a full-arch of missing teeth. Many patients who choose this innovative tooth replacement solution enjoy lasting benefits and a confident, healthy smile. If you are interested in finding out more information on All-on-4 and custom-made dentures, we invite you to make an appointment at Avon Dental Group.
Candidates for All-on-4
You could be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 dental implants if you need to replace most of all of your teeth in one or both arches or prefer the long-term advantages of an implant-supported solution compared to traditional, removable dentures. Many patients choose this implant option over traditional tooth replacements since it carries no diet restrictions, messy adhesives, or special cleaning processes. Since All-on-4 uses four dental implants to support a full-arch set of teeth, you can avoid having to place individual implants at each missing tooth site, enjoying significant cost-savings. Unlike other implant procedures, which may not be suitable for patients with bone loss, All-on-4 implants are positioned at strategic angles to utilize available bone for lasting support.

"Heidi is an excellent hygienist."- K. / Google / Jul 26, 2023
"I have always had issues with plaque build up and tartar. My dental cleanings involve heavy scraping and what seemed like forever in the dentist chair trying not to jump too high or out of the chair due to sensitivity. My last cleaning showed extensive plaque and tartar build up. I was offered this new treatment called Hybenx, which is like a liquid applied to your affected teeth. After 30 seconds, it literally softens the plaque and tartar so that the hygienist can then amazingly so gently just literally rinse and use the scaler/pick to slide it right off of your teeth. It does have a strong taste of vinegar but you can rinse after the 30 seconds and for me the vinegar taste was worth not going through pain! The hygienist then goes back around your teeth to make sure it is all removed. It was the easiest, painless cleaning I have ever had. And a much shorter time in the dentist chair. There is a private cost of $60.00 but so worth it for me. Also, there is a consent form to sign regarding side effects however I experienced no side effects at all. HIGHLY recommend trying this product if it is an option for you. I will be using this method for all my future cleanings!"- S.F. / Google / Jul 21, 2023

The All-on-4 Implant Process
The first step in the All-on-4 process is to take digital x-rays and impressions of your jaw so that our team can plan the precise location for your implants. Before surgically placing your implants in your jaw, our team will numb your treatment sites and can provide sedation to enhance your overall comfort. Once your implant placement is complete, we will attach a temporary tooth restoration that can be used immediately and will allow for normal function and appearance as your implants integrate with your jawbone.
After Your Procedure
It is normal to experience some discomfort and swelling in your gums after implant surgery. Our team will provide instructions on how to increase your comfort and care for your mouth as you heal. It will take about 6 – 9 months for your implants to fully integrate with your jawbone. After this occurs, we will have you return to make your custom permanent tooth replacement. Our on-site dental lab uses the finest dental materials and personalizes each tooth replacement to match the jaw structure, facial features, and cosmetic goals of each individual patient. We recommend that you attend routine dental cleaning and exam visits during this time period and thereafter, so that our team can monitor your progress and make sure the implants are healing into your jawbone and gums as they should be. All-on-4 dental implants can last for many years, with proper maintenance, and are cared for just like natural teeth.
Certain insurance plans may offer partial coverage for All-on-4 implants and custom restorations. While there will likely be some personal expenses, our team will work with your insurance to optimize your coverage. Avon Dental Group wants to help you get the quality care you need and is pleased to accept a variety of payment methods, including no-interest flexible financing plans.
