Defeat Extensive Tooth Loss with Robust, Dependable, and Natural-looking All-on-4 Dental Implants

Do you need help with ill-fitting dentures? Have you heard about All-on-4 dental implants? If not, the All-on-4 technique is one of the scientifically proven treatments for full-mouth rehabilitation that uses four implants to restore your smile and oral health. Implant-supported dentures in My Dental and Implants have transformed hundreds of patients’ smiles, enhancing their aesthetics, oral health, and confidence.

What are All-on-4 dental implants?

Conventional dentures are an option when you have lost all teeth in one or both arches, but they tend to become loose over time as your gums deal with bone loss. If you are tired of dealing with standard dentures, consider All-on-4 implants. This revolutionary hybrid system combines dentures’ beauty with implants’ stability.

Unlike placing an implant for every lost tooth, the All-on-4 technique uses four implants per jaw to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. The implants are strategically placed in the front and posterior region of the mouth to support a prosthesis that can hold the number of implants placed by the dentist. The All-on-4 technique remains secure in the mouth and doesn’t wobble or fall out when eating or smiling.

Has your implant dentist turned you away due to bone loss? Don’t worry! You can benefit from All-on-4 implants without bone grafting unless you suffer from severe bone loss. Such individuals may require additional bone augmentation. We place the implants at an angle in the densest areas of your jawbone. We maximize the available bone to ensure patients with bone loss can still achieve a complete smile without costly bone grafts and sinus lifts.

What is the procedure for All-on-4 dental implants?

Placing All-on-4 implants begins with a comprehensive exam of your smile to ensure it is free from cavities, gum disease, and other issues. We want your new smile to be built upon a strong, healthy foundation for long-lasting effects.

The next step is to insert titanium posts in strategic positions in the jawbone surgically. Dr. Nima Afzalian uses advanced techniques and materials to ensure superior and effective outcomes. After implantation, the doctor attaches a temporary restoration over your implants to ensure you don’t stay without teeth as your implants heal.

Over the next 4-6 months, your implants will biologically fuse with the jawbone to form one solid structure. However, note that the duration of the healing process can vary from individual to individual. Keep up with follow-up appointments and practice good oral hygiene during this time to guarantee a successful osseointegration.

Once your implants heal, you’ll visit our office for a permanent and custom-made restoration. Your new teeth offer a fixed solution (non-removable), improving comfort, eating, and speech ability.

Denture options for patients with tooth loss

Implant Dentures Vs Dentures explained by Dr. Nima Afzalian of My Dental & Implants

Types of dentures

Today, I would like to discuss about implant dentures and what are patient options as far as implant dentures and dentures. There are three options for patients that they can choose from based on how well they want to smile, if they care about the security of their denture, meaning that if it’s removable or secure, and also their chewing function, how they want to chew and obviously finance part it’s a big part of it as well.

The first option is obviously traditional dentures. Traditional dentures is with no implants and basically the top and bottom are typically loose but the top is more secured because you have the palate or roof of the mouth that creates a suction between the denture and your gum. But the lower, there is no palate on the lower so there is no security and the lower dentures are always more loose compared to the top ones. Snap-in dentures, they are still removable like traditional dentures but they do have implants similar to implant hybrid dentures. So, snap-in denture is an option that basically on the top three to four implants is placed and then on the bottom two to three implants is placed and you’ll get the same dentures as traditional dentures but they will snap in and they’re secured so they’re not typically as loose as traditional dentures. However, sometimes as you eat and chew on it, you may get a rocking motion on snap-in dentures but for the most part they’re pretty secure and much better option than traditional dentures.

The final option and the third option is basically implant hybrid denture or all on egg. This option is not like snap-in denture or traditional denture that are removable. This option is secured so four to top and four to six implants on the bottom and your prosthesis which is much nicer looking than those traditional dentures will be tightened in and secured in with those implants. However, they do have maintenance like your natural teeth because they mimic your natural healthy teeth up to 70 to 90 percent and with that comes maintenance. So, every six months the cleaning and every year those prosthesis are removed and we clean on journeys.


Implant Hybrid Dentures - Case Study explained by Dr. Nima Afzalian of My Dental & Implants

Dr. Nima Afzalian explian about veneers

Hello everyone.
Today we just want to go over one of our big smile transformation.This patient came in to us, she wasn’t. Her main concern was she’s not able to eat and chew.  And also she was very self-aware of her smile. She was like, I have missing teeth and it’s not working for me.
So we went over her options and she decided to go with the implant hybrid bridges or all on four, all on X. All of them are the same term for the same treatment,
different terms for same treatment.So I just wanted to share with you the before and after patient loves her
results and she’s able to eat too much better.And this is just her temporaries and we’re still going through some modification
for her final while she’s in these temporaries. But she absolutely loves her smile and she sees the big difference.
Great seeing you all. Thank you.

FAQs

What is an implant-supported denture?

This is the best treatment you can get if you are missing all your teeth or your teeth are at a stage where all need to be removed. Implant-supported dentures, full-mouth dental implants, implant hybrid, or All-on-X dental implants are all different terminology for the same treatment. This treatment involves the placement of four to six implants and getting your new smile within 24 hours after surgery. Implant-supported dentures are fixed, and you don’t need to worry about it being loose or coming out.

How well can I eat with them?

Implant-supported dentures mimic the natural healthy teeth dentition in biting and chewing forces up to 80% to 90%.

What are the advantages of All-on-X over traditional dentures?

We look into three factors that make them different. First is chewing function, second is retention (how well they stay in your mouth), and third is how your smile will look like. All-on-X implants are superior to traditional dentures in all three factors. You can eat steaks and apples with them, you don’t need to use denture adhesives, and you can enjoy a natural-looking smile with the shade and shape you want for your teeth.

What do I need to know about Implant Supported Dentures or All-on-X?

We highly recommend doing this procedure under sedation. This is an extensive procedure, so we always include it as part of treatment for all our patients.

The second important thing is the final material. The final prosthesis can be made of acrylic, similar to denture teeth, or zirconia, similar to dental crowns. In general, acrylic is not nearly as strong as zirconia nor as natural-looking as zirconia.

The third thing to consider is maintenance. We always tell our patients it’s not just about removing teeth and placing implants. It’s also about care. We get a lot of patients who have these denture implants but don’t know that they need maintenance. These implant-supported dentures need regular cleaning, along with having the prosthesis removed and cleaned underneath once a year.
