What is All-on-4 dental Implants?
The dental implants made by Nobel Biocare, All-on-4, offer an advanced method to fasten dentures to get a total restoration. This procedure works by implanting the screws (implants) into four areas on each arch. In contrast to other enhancement dentures, All-on-4 uses fewer implants for a secure hold. Dr. Rick Campbell at Sunrise Smile Design suggests All-on-4 implants for patients who are looking for a fully restored mouth without the bother and dietary limitations that come with removable dentures. Several Phoenix, AZ patients have reaped the benefits of the groundbreaking All-on-4 procedure, enjoying high-quality outcomes. If you're interested in finding out more about All-on-4 implants and custom dentures, then we encourage you to make a consultation at Sunrise Smile Design.
Am I a Candidate for all-on-4?
Dental implants by All-on-4 can be used to substitute one or both arches together with dental implants connected to dentures made custom for you. You could be an ideal candidate for All-on-4 implant dentures in the event you prefer the benefits of implant-supported dentures compared to traditional, removable dentures, which include few or no dietary limitations, no messy glues, without any denture soaking. You will have to have good gum and bone density to be a candidate since the screws rely upon your bone and gums to keep them in place. If needed, gum and/or bone grafts may be performed before implant placement. Dr. Campbell can determine if this treatment is right for you in your consultation and will help discuss all your options.

The all-on-4 Implant Procedure
The first step in the All-on-4 process is to take digital scans and x-rays of your teeth. Dr. Campbell will create your unique treatment program and talk about your choices for sedation during your procedures. During your first appointment, the implants will be placed in your dental arch. Dr. Campbell will place a temporary cover to protect the dental implants as your gums and jawbone recover and your custom dentures are being created. In several months, you will return to get your custom dentures connected and then adjusted for a good fit.
What Can I Expect After My all-on-4 Procedure?
You may feel some pain and discomfort in your mouth following implant surgery. During the time you are using temporary dentures, there will be some diet restrictions and cleaning instructions to follow. You'll also schedule routine follow-ups throughout the healing period so Dr. Campbell can check your progress and ensure that the implants are healing into your jawbone and gums as they should be. Once your custom dentures have been placed, you can clean them just like natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing. You should continue to go to Sunrise Smile Design for yearly exams and biannual professional cleanings to maintain your dentures, and so Dr. Campbell can track the health of your implants, gums, and jaw.
Does INsurance Cover All-on-4 Implants?
