All-on-4 Dental Implants – Arlington, TX
Get Your Teeth Back in a Single Day
For people missing multiple teeth along a single arch, it’s no longer necessary to restore each one with an individual dental implant. Now, patients can benefit from this technology’s enduring health and aesthetic benefits while saving time and money thanks to the All-on-4 dental implant technique. With it, just four implants are placed strategically into the jawbone.
Thanks to this approach, many patients are able to avoid the need for time-consuming bone grafting procedures that would have been necessary in the past. This treatment enables a patient to receive their implants as well as a brand new prosthetic at the same appointment, helping them achieve improved oral comfort and function right away. This way, a patient will enjoy all of the benefits of an implant denture, including better speech and chewing, and they never have to worry about the prosthetic shifting out of place.

Restoring Your Smile with All-on-4 Implants
If you’re interested in getting All-on-4 dental implants, the process will start with Dr. Doctor giving you an exam, during which he’ll check to make sure your jawbone is strong enough to support the prosthetic roots. The success of the procedure largely depends on this, as it’s the jawbone that will provide the foundation for the new denture. Just like with regular implants, All-on-4 implants are positioned within the bone, and then they will fuse with it through a process call osseointegration.
The Foundation of a Beautiful Smile
The reason All-on-4 dentures only require four implant posts is because they are placed at specific locations within the jawbone, namely right towards the front and the very back. This is where the bone is naturally thicker, so the treatment is able to take advantage of a patient’s bone density as much as possible without the need for preparatory procedures.
On the day of your treatment, the implants will be placed, and then they will be topped with a temporary denture. This will restore your oral function immediately as well as protect your gum tissue during the healing process. This can take several months depending on the condition of your mouth and jaw. Once you are fully healed, you’ll return to Dr. Doctor, and he’ll attach your permanent denture in place using a metal carriage that’s designed to fit securely (and discreetly) over the implant posts.
Enjoy a New Smile for a Lifetime
All-on-4 dental implants are not only extremely secure and reliable, but they’re easy to maintain as well—you just need to brush and floss your teeth as normal as well as attend regular dental checkups. With that, you can look forward to your new smile lasting for decades to come.
