The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a modern approach that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Traditionally, when a patient has lost all of their natural teeth, the only option was loose dentures, barely held in place with suction or adhesives. Most standard dentures are unsecured, and that comes with inherent limitations for the patient, leading to frustration, embarrassment, and even physical sores. Dentures are known for being painful, inconvenient and unstable, making it difficult to chew, and feel comfortable in social settings. Modern dentistry can help. Our team at Woodland Hills Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, can permanently stabilize your denture device with the All-on-4® Treatment Concept.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a contemporary design on your traditional denture. Using dental implants, Dr. Robert G. Hale and Dr. James P. Jensvold, can stabilize your denture permanently. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported with at least four, sometimes six, dental implants. Patients love this system, because with fewer implants needed, there is a reduction in both the overall treatment time and cost, while vastly increasing your overall comfort with your denture device.
Many patients find that they are surprised to learn that they are candidates for All-on-4® Treatment Concept. Though the process is a surgical procedure, it is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning that even our more medically delicate patients are candidates. The most important factor in this procedure is the ability to heal properly. If you suffer from a condition or take a medication that limits your ability to heal, it does not eliminate you as a candidate, but it will mean that we will want to make adjustments to promote healing. This may include working with your physician or asking the patient to make adjustments to their health, including stopping the use of tobacco products.
In most implant procedures, it is necessary to bulk up the patients bone before implantation. The unique All-on-4® treatment concept solution often does not require the step of placing a bone graft, saving considerable time to the overall healing and completion. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is designed to reach the more substantial bone, ensuring greater stability in the bone. Most patients will be able to have an either your denture device or a temporary set of teeth, to be placed on the same day of surgery. After your denture or temporary teeth are in place, this will allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery.
