Overview

All on 4 DiagramAll-on-4 dental implants are specifically designed for people in need of full upper and/or lower restorations to treat failing teeth or replace removable dentures. All-on-4-qualified patients receive a full set of non-removable teeth in one appointment (after the initial consultation and prosthodontic exam).

1. What are All-on-4 Implants?

The All-On-4 is an FDA-approved technique which now utilizes high-tech planning software, a specialty of EON Clinics. A high resolution 3-D CT Scan is used with our virtual planning software to facilitate the design and fabrication of the final replacement teeth. EON Clinics is a leader in All-On-4 dental implants procedures, offering exceptional restorations of upper and/or lower teeth. Unlike other approaches, which typically involve bone grafting and six-to-eight implants per arch, EON Clinics uses a proven technique that involves only four specially placed implants and typically avoids the grafting phase altogether. The All-On-4 technique allows better diagnostic planning and more predictable results. The highly-predictable implant placement and avoidance of bone grafts allows the All-On-4 procedure to maintain a success rate of nearly 98%, as opposed to the estimated 93% success rate of implants placed with traditional approaches.

2. How Are All-On-4 Implants Better Than Dentures?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing or cracked teeth. Removable dentures do not feel or function like real teeth. They can also affect your speech, making it difficult to talk naturally. Partial dentures are detrimental to adjacent teeth as well. Dentures can be uncomfortable and have to be continuously adjusted. They also make some foods difficult to eat and can cause a whistling sound when speaking. Dental implants are a one-time investment that will avoid all of the aforementioned issues and give you a permanent solution.

3. How Long Does It Take to Get All-On-4 Implants?

The All-on-4 procedure provides the benefit of a smooth transition for the patient. Patients are amazed by how quickly their dentures or failing teeth can be replaced with fixed, non-removable teeth that look natural and feel comfortable. It can be done in just one day! Our all-inclusive clinics allow more steps to be taken with fewer visits, which significantly reduces the hassle involved with implant treatment, thus you can undergo the procedure quicker than at other clinics. The typical procedure for a single arch can be two to four hours, whereas a full mouth of implants, in other words the upper and lower jaw, typically takes four to six hours. We have a team of prosthodontists and board-certified oral surgeons that will perform your procedure with the utmost care and expertise. Prior to the day of your appointment, you will get to know the staff and carefully go through your patient instructions. You will pick up antibiotics, pain management medication, and be advised to eat soft foods prior to your procedure visit. The day of your implant surgery at EON Clinics will been arranged with your schedule and comfort in mind. A responsible adult must be available to drive you home from your procedure or greet you at the door if transportation is arranged by your clinic. Post-op patients are typically able to return to work and normal daily activities after two to four days with minimal discomfort.
