All-on-4 is an efficient solution to restore your missing teeth and give you back your confidence. This process is called “All-on 4” because it uses just four dental implants and singular restoration pieces to restore a full arch of teeth. All-on-4 is a great alternative to dentures if you’re looking to gain the freedom to talk and eat in public without concern.
We understand how important it is for you to feel comfortable with how your smile looks and feels when you’re with friends and family. All-on-4 implants have the potential to help you look and feel your best throughout the entire implant process, while cutting back on time and costs. Here are some of the many benefits of All-on-4 dental implants:
No need for supplemental procedures – For patients who have worn dentures or dealt with missing teeth for an extended period of time, gum tissue recession and jawbone deterioration is not uncommon. All-on-4 makes use of your existing gum tissue and bone structure, so you don’t have to undergo a supplemental procedure to increase your chances of implant success.
Cost Effective – Because Dr. Reger only uses four implants to secure your restoration, the cost of your implants is significantly reduced.
Protection Against Tooth Loss Related Health Issues – All-on-4 also provides better protection against tooth loss-related health issues such as gum disease, jawbone deterioration, and misalignment than non-implant restorations.
Durability – Like other implant solutions, All-on-4 implants can last twenty years to a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and regular dental exams at Reger Family Dental.
Stability – Your All-on-4 implants will fuse to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Even though the All-on-4 method uses fewer implants, the osseointegration process ensures your implants stay stable and secure in your mouth. This will allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Shorter Installation Time – Fewer implants means your installation time will be greatly reduced.
Don’t Go Toothless – Dr. Reger will provide you with a fully functional set of temporary prosthetic teeth to wear while your implants are integrating, so you don’t have to continue going without teeth.
Easy Maintenance – You can care for your All-on-4 dental implants the same way as your normal teeth– with proper oral hygiene and regular dental exams at Reger Family Dental.
Even if you’ve been told in the past that you couldn’t get dental implants, All-on-4 may be right for you. You may be a candidate for All-on-4 dental implants if:
To see if you’re a good candidate for All-on-4 treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chris Reger. He’ll be happy to sit down with you, examine your teeth, hear your concerns, and help you find the perfect solution for your smile.
No, the All-on-4 treatment isn’t painful because Dr. Reger will apply local anesthesia to numb the surgical area before your treatment. This will ensure you don’t feel any pain while your implants are placed.
As with any surgical procedure, you’ll likely experience some discomfort for a few days after treatment. Most patients only report mild symptoms, but we can prescribe pain medication if needed.
In a few months, when the implants have fully integrated with your jaw, you can return to our office for your final restoration. Once your dentures are attached, you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile for many years to come.
