Most of those who experience tooth loss because of gum disease or tooth decay will also experience some amount of bone loss. Not only can such loss been seen in changes to the contours of your face, but it can also jeopardize your chances of qualifying for tooth replacement procedures in the future. Bone grafting is an option, yet if you fail to qualify for this procedure or are searching for an alternative, then the All-on-4™ dental implant technique is definitely one that you should consider.

The All-on-4™ takes maximum advantage of the limited amount of bone in your jaw by utilizing just four implants. Not only does this eliminate the need for a bone graft, but it offers near instantaneous results with fast post-procedure recovery times and long-lasting results.

Explaining the All-on-4™ Procedure

The procedure works as follows:

• You are given an anesthetic to numb the treatment area
Dr. Scott or Bradley Ross will then locate the four areas on your upper jaw with the highest bone volumes
• The four implants are placed and a temporary set of teeth is attached
• Once the implants are fully integrated with the surrounding bone (typically in about six months), a final, permanent set of dentures is placed

Your new implant supported dentures can stand up to any of the rigors of normal teeth. Past recipients of this procedure have reported no difficulty with chewing and eating any of the foods that they enjoyed before they received their implants. Plus, unlike with traditional dentures, you don’t have to deal with any removable hardware. Along with the increased self confidence that you will experience after going through the All-On-4™ technique, you will also see the bone levels in your jaw start to stabilize, further improving your overall oral health.

A bone graft is not the only way for you enjoy the benefit of high quality dental implants. Drs. Scott and Bradley Ross can help restore your smile with dentures affixed via the fast and efficient All-on-4™ technique.
