What are All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants, also known as "teeth in a day" or "full arch dental implants," are a revolutionary solution for individuals with multiple missing teeth or those facing complete tooth loss in one or both arches. This innovative technique involves securing a fixed prosthesis, typically a full set of teeth, to just four strategically placed dental implants. These implants serve as sturdy anchors, offering remarkable stability and functionality that is unparalleled by traditional dentures.
What is the procedure for placing All-on-4 dental implants?
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is a well-planned, streamlined process designed to minimize discomfort and recovery time. It typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation: Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with our oral surgeons, Dr. Naghibi or Dr. Jones. During this appointment, they will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for All-on-4 implants.
- Treatment Planning: A personalized treatment plan will be developed if you are a candidate. This plan includes the placement of four dental implants per arch strategically positioned to provide maximum support and stability.
- Implant Placement: On the day of the procedure, your oral surgeon will carefully place the dental implants into your jawbone. These implants will serve as the foundation for your new set of teeth.
- Temporary Prosthesis: A temporary prosthesis is usually attached to the implants immediately after placement, allowing you to leave our office with a functional set of teeth on the same day.
- Healing Period: Over the next few months, the implants will fuse with your natural bone through osseointegration, ensuring a strong and secure fit.
- Final Prosthesis: Once the healing process is complete, a permanent, custom-crafted prosthesis will replace the temporary one, providing you with a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
How long does it take to complete the All-on-4 implant procedure?
One of the remarkable advantages of All-on-4 dental implants is the speed at which the procedure can be completed. Unlike traditional implant treatments, which may take several months, All-on-4 implants often allow you to leave our office with a temporary set of teeth the same day as the surgery. This efficient process saves you time and minimizes discomfort and disruption to your daily life.
Who is a suitable candidate for All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are an excellent solution for individuals who:
- Have multiple missing teeth or are facing complete tooth loss.
- Desire a permanent and stable solution.
- Wish to avoid the inconveniences and discomfort associated with removable dentures.
- Have sufficient bone density to support the implants or can undergo bone grafting if necessary.
- Are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.
During your consultation with Dr. Naghibi or Dr. Jones, they will assess your situation and determine if All-on-4 dental implants are the right choice.
Are All-on-4 dental implants a permanent solution for missing teeth?
All-on-4 dental implants offer a permanent and long-lasting solution for missing teeth. The titanium implants fuse with your natural bone, creating a stable and durable foundation for your new teeth. With proper care and maintenance, All-on-4 implants can give you a beautiful smile for many years.
What is the success rate of All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants boast an impressive success rate, with most patients experiencing excellent outcomes. The procedure's success depends on various factors, including oral health, post-operative instructions adherence, and regular follow-up appointments. Our experienced oral surgeons, Dr. Naghibi and Dr. Jones, will ensure that you receive the highest quality of care to maximize the success of your All-on-4 implant treatment.
What is the cost of All-on-4 dental implant treatment, and does insurance cover it?

While dental insurance plans may not always cover the entire cost, our Maryland Oral Surgery Associates team will work with you to explore financing options and make this life-changing treatment as affordable as possible.
