Dental ImplantsThe All-on-4 technique allows four implants to be placed in the upper or lower jaw to anchor a permanent bridge of teeth. It is especially good for patients who have limited bone and do not wish to have bone grafting performed, because the implants are placed in the front of the mouth where most patients tend to have enough bone remaining. This technique can be used for denture patients, or for those who have to lose all of their teeth.
The implant placement is designed using a 3D scan of the jaws and computer software that programs the precise surgical position of the implants and the permanent teeth they will support. Typically, when the bone is sufficient in amount and density, a provisional fixed bridge can be placed the same day as the implants.
Patients TestimonialsHere are some comments from satisfied patients:
- "No matter what I did, I just couldn't stop the bone loss around my teeth. The same day they were removed, the implants were placed and I had permanent bridges. They looked great, I could eat with them, and there was minimal discomfort. After the weekend, I was back in the office." Dr. R.G.
- "I had an upper denture for many years and was losing my lower teeth. I decided to have the implants and couldn't be happier. I can eat anything." Sandra O.
- "I just couldn't afford to take care of my teeth when I was a kid. Now I am working and Dr. Tupac took out my upper teeth and put in the bridge all at once. I have my mouth back." Brian T.
We have been providing this treatment for many years, with great success.
