So All-on-Four is a coined term. We like to call it 'All-on-X' in our practice because many times we don't just place four implants in an arch. We like to place as many implants in there as we can so we have backup insurance policies for the patient. So if you did have down the road, if you had an implant that did not work out or did not make it through the All-on-Four process, then we would have ... If we have five or six or seven implants that actually is okay. Still we have that stability. But All-on-X, All-on-Four, implant supported dentures is really what it is. It has completely changed the face of dentistry. And it's completely opened up opportunities for patients who, in the past, would have to wear a denture. They had no other option, but a denture. And what that does for somebody's quality of life is, when you can give them back that function, the aesthetics, when you can give those things back to a patient, it's a complete life changer for somebody, and it's highly rewarding for our practice.
We love doing them because the before and after effect of that on somebody's life is just tremendous. So the fact that they can now eat an apple, they can eat whatever they want, they can smile without worrying about their denture coming down or falling down. So psychologically that's huge for somebody who has had to deal with wearing a denture for decades. If you're in a denture or if you have missing teeth, where you have a partial denture, it would be highly beneficial to get into your dentist. Give us a call so we can see if it's something that we can actually fit you for some sort of implant retained prosthesis that can tremendously affect your life.

Achieve Your New Smile Quickly With All-on-4
You can’t beat dental implants when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Implants are small posts or screws that your dentist will place in your jaw. For most implant procedures, the patient must wait months for their jaw to heal and the implants to fuse with the jawbone before getting their new teeth.
However, the All-on-4 procedure is different:
- We’ll place just four implants per arch, two vertically and two at precise angles.
- This setup allows us to anchor new teeth to the implants at the same appointment.
- Your waiting period is eliminated, and you can leave our office with a set of temporary teeth the same day.
- When your final restorations are ready for placement, you’ll come back to the office and we’ll switch out your teeth.
Just as with all implant restorations, your All-on-4 implants will help protect the integrity of your jawbone. The implants will stimulate the bone to produce new cells, keeping it strong and helping ensure that your facial structure doesn’t change over time due to bone loss.
