What are All On Four Implants?

All-On-4 dental implants are the same procedure as All-On-X. The difference between both is that in All-On-4, only four implants are placed in the jawbone to support the hybrid denture.

In All-on-X techniques, four or more implants are placed in the jawbone at the same time to support a full arch bridge, often called a hybrid denture. Due to their strategic location in the bone spread around the entire arch, they are easily secure enough that the hybrid denture can be applied to the implants at the same time, immediately renewing someone’s smile.

Procedure for All on 4 teeth

The AoX process is similar in procedure to traditional dental implants. The major resemblance is in the preliminary stages. However, the process itself is a little different.

  • Preliminary consultation – During your first appointment with our dental team, which will look like a normal test, you can inquire about something you don’t know. You will receive a treatment plan, and there are likely to be X-rays to ensure that the implants are optimally placed. Extractions could be scheduled, if necessary.
  • Preliminary protocols – This varies for each patient, depending on the treatment plan. Tooth extractions and periodontal treatment are the most common. Gum disease must be thoroughly treated before any dental implantation. If you suffer from it, your dentist can perform scaling and root planing. This can be skipped if dirty teeth are removed. This is another way to deal with periodontal issues. Severe periodontitis can lead to infection and even failure of the dental implant. Our dental team will record your dental impression to make sure your temporary denture is ready as soon as implants are inserted.
  • Surgical method – All-on-4 is usually placed under sedation or local anesthesia. Two dental implants are typically mounted on the front and two on the back at a 45° angle. This gives enough support to the entire fixed arch. Thanks to this, additional procedures such as bone graft are not always required.
  • Fitting the prosthesis – The denture could be provided on the same day, depending on the condition of your mouth. Otherwise, you will go home with the implants and maybe a temporary denture. In such a scenario, the final prosthesis is usually placed 3-6 months later, when healing is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions on All-OnX Dental Implants

Why All On Four dental implants should be considered as a treatment option?

Dr. Adatrow will provide you professional guidance for choosing the ideal treatment.

Which one is better? All On 4 or All-On-X dental implants?

Both the procedures have been shown to provide excellent results, offering a sound bite, a comfortable fit, and a life-like appearance. However, All-on-X uses one or two more implants to provide extra safety.
With aging, the bone density in the jaw will gradually decline in areas without implants. All-on-X guarantees that this process does not affect the integrity or longevity of a patient's hybrid denture. It's deliberately over-engineered, which is an incredibly common phenomenon in all sorts of fields that produce lasting products. The goal is to create an incredibly strong foundation for a patient's hybrid denture. If one implant is not correctly integrated, 4 or 5 remains to support a full arch bridge.

How will I know if I am eligible for implants?

Anyone above 18 years of age, with missing teeth and sufficient bone, are eligible for implants. Schedule an appointment with us to assess your oral conditions and get a consultation with Dr. Adatrow. Our dental team will take your medical, family, and habit history in detail.

An optimal treatment plan will be devised for you after doing all these procedures. When teeth are lost due to damage or removal, a hole is left in the jawbone. As gums heal, they are going to do so unevenly to conform to the wound contours that rise and drop. This causes difficulties with any form of rehabilitation, such as dentures, which can cause unevenness, soreness, and pain. For dentures, an alveoloplasty is needed to prepare the jawbone for dental implants. The surface of the bone would need to be adjusted to an exact shape or level.
