If you are embarrassed by your smile due to damaged or missing teeth, the All-on-Four technique may be the right treatment for you. It uses as few as four strategically placed dental implants that will secure a cosmetic denture for a functional and stable smile. This method optimizes healthy bone structure to replace a full arch or set of missing teeth. The All-On-4 technique makes it possible for patients with a compromised bone structure to receive dental implants without the need for extensive bone grafting. With the four small titanium dental implants a custom designed denture is secured, restoring a patient’s confidence, oral health, and quality of life. This unique treatment approach can bring back full function without the need for daily maintenance, dietary restriction and garbled speech that often accompany traditional dentures.

- More affordable than other options
- Restores your smile with only four dental implants
- You can get a full set of teeth in one day
- Typically no bone graft is needed
- Implants are securely placed deep in the jawbone so the denture will not slip or fall out
