What is All-on-4?
This dental treatment is specifically beneficial for patients who want to replace all of their teeth or their old, ill-fitting dentures. Instead of requiring the dentist to install numerous dental implants, All-on-4 lives up to its name – just four dental implants are needed to replace all of the teeth on the top or the bottom of your mouth, instead of the six to eight implants required by traditional approaches!
The secret of All-on-4 is that two of the implants are tilted an up to 45° angle. This enables your dentist to use more of your existing bone structure, thereby eliminating the need for invasive bone grafts. In most cases, you will be able to go home on the day of your procedure with a fully-functioning temporary set of teeth. Once your mouth has healed, you will come back to our dentist’s office to be fitted for your brand new pair of firm-fitting dentures.
Most of our patients are simply thrilled with the results of their All-on-4 treatment, and say they would highly recommend it to their friends and family! Here are just some of the benefits they report:
- You will enjoy having the ability to get a brand new smile in just one day.
- Minimal dental surgery is required, with minimal discomfort and recuperation time.
- Patients experience improved dental functioning – most find they are able to eat and even talk more easily.
- This is a permanent solution to difficult dental problems – it feels just like your natural teeth.
- Because of its revolutionary technology, All-on-4 is less invasive and less time-consuming than traditional approaches to dental replacement. This means it takes less time and costs less than other treatment modalities.
- You will gain more confidence and a great new smile!
A great side benefit is that the titanium implants we use will fuse to your underlying bone structure over time, and actually end up making this crucial foundation even stronger. This helps to prevent future bone loss in the jaw, which means you will be able to retain your youthful appearance even longer!
Because there is no bone grafting and only four implants are utilized, the All-on-4 treatment is generally much more cost-effective than traditional dental treatment approaches. Each patient presents different dental challenges, however, and costs will vary from one patient to the next. Your preparation work may be different from that of other patients undergoing the same procedure, and there are different types of materials which can be used in fabricating your permanent replacement teeth.
In general, though, a full mouth treatment will usually fall somewhere in the range of $23,000. This includes all of the pre-work and dental imaging, the cost of the dental implants, the surgical placement of your implants, temporary replacement teeth, follow-up appointments, and permanent replacement teeth. Ask for a full consultation and written cost estimate to assist in your decision-making process.
If you have dental insurance, it may be able to cover some or most of the costs of your All-on-4 treatment; however, you will be responsible for any remaining amounts. Our dental office staff has a great deal of experience in working with dental insurance companies, and can work with your insurance company on your behalf to determine your out-of-pocket responsibility.
For any remaining amounts due after insurance, most patients qualify for some type of financing assistance with this treatment. This will allow you to break down the cost of the procedure into low, monthly payments. Our dental office has experience dealing with several reputable lending companies. A patient coordinator can explain all of the available options, and the financing costs involved. You will need to balance the anticipated costs against the benefits you receive of having your beautiful smile restored. Schedule a consultation to learn more about the treatment before making a final decision.

To most of us, our smile is a virtual extension of our personality. It lets others know how happy we are to see them, shows an enjoyment of life, and makes us feel good about ourselves. But, if you are suffering from missing teeth, cracked or yellow teeth, or old, wobbly dentures, you probably do not feel very good about your smile right now.
If you have finally decided to stop being embarrassed about your smile, then it is time to correct this situation. You might be aware of dental bridges and dentures, and perhaps you have even heard about dental implants. You might be interested in how they work, or you might be concerned about some of the negatives you have learned about them. You could be worried about the surgery associated with traditional dental implants, or you might be surprised to find out that your expensive dentures need to be replaced every ten years or so.
But have you heard about All-on-4®, the revolutionary dental treatment concept to replace missing teeth and outdated dentures? More cost-efficient and far less invasive than traditional dental procedures, this solution can leave you with a fixed, full-arch dental prosthesis on the day of your procedure! This treatment was successfully pioneered by Dr. Paulo Malo in 1998. Since that time almost two decades ago, hundreds of thousands of patients have reaped the benefits of this impressive dental replacement technology.
Am I a good candidate for All-on-4?
As with any medical procedure, each patient is different. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your oral health and medical status to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Age in itself is not necessarily a deciding criterion, but some of the areas your dentist, endodontist or prosthodontist will consider include:
- Your full medical history – be sure to tell your dental professional about any previous treatments or surgeries you underwent, and explain how you responded to them.
- Your expectations – what are you hoping to achieve by having this treatment?
- Dental history – what is your history of oral care? Have you experienced severe periodontal disease? Do you clench or grind your teeth, especially when you sleep?
- Diagnostics – your dental professional will perform a thorough evaluation of your mouth, teeth and bone structure. We may then order X-rays or specialized digital imaging of these areas to determine the amount of bone structure available for the implants.
- Your ability to perform the necessary activities involved in the recuperation process.
Once these areas have all been taken into consideration, your dentist will make a recommendation to you as to whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. Be sure to ask any questions you may have, listen carefully to the responses, and express any concerns you have about the procedure. Ask the dental team to clearly explain what happens before, during and after the treatment.
If you have any teeth remaining, they will need to be extracted before this treatment. Any gum infections will also need to be treated and cleared before we can begin. Once your mouth is ready for the All-on-4 implant, you will be scheduled for a dental appointment that will last about two to three hours. You may be under a general anesthetic for this procedure, or your dental professional may be able to use conscious sedation, depending on your individual situation and tolerance levels. Make sure that you understand the difference, so you will know if you need to have someone with you to drive you home. During the treatment, your dentist will:
- Drill into the bone structure to create a hole for the dental implants.
- Install and tighten the dental implants.
- A temporary set of teeth will be attached to the part of the implants that protrudes from your gums. These should already begin to look and feel like your original, natural teeth.
- During your recovery, the dentist may advise you to stay on a soft food diet to encourage healing. You may be asked to come in for several post-operative check-ups to determine how well your mouth is healing. If you experience intense pain or notice unusual bleeding, contact our dentist immediately.
- When your mouth has finished healing, and the new dental implants have become stabilized in your mouth, your temporary teeth will be replaced with new, permanent, custom-fitted teeth. The entire process usually takes about six to eight months from start to finish, depending on your body’s healing capabilities.
How are these All-on-4 implants different from traditional dentures?
This procedure gives you a permanent set of teeth that will look and feel like your natural teeth. Some of the differences between All-on-4 dental implants and traditional dentures are:
- These are permanent teeth that are brushed and cleaned like your natural teeth. They don’t have to be soaked in special solutions.
- They have a natural feel, unlike dentures which can sometimes feel unreal.
- They are permanently installed in your mouth and do not have to be taken out.
- No more need to use messy adhesives because they are securely attached to your jaw.
- They don’t press down on your gums, so they are more comfortable to wear and don’t result in “wear bumps.”
- You have more force for biting down, so you can eat more of your favorite crunchy foods again!
- Because they are permanently installed, the implants help to prevent bone deterioration and restore your beautiful facial features
Unlike crowns or dentures that might need to be replaced, implants provide a life-long solution, so you’ll want to be sure to take good care of your new smile! Don’t think of these as dentures – think of them just like your natural teeth. Establish a daily routine of flossing and brushing to keep your new teeth in tip-top condition. Our dental hygienists can review oral hygiene instructions with you, if you would like. We will recommend the most appropriate oral hygiene routine to fit your needs.
What if I only need my lower or upper teeth replaced?
It is possible that you might only need to have your upper or lower teeth replaced right now, and the All-on-4 implants can be placed accordingly. However, if it is likely that you will need to have the other teeth replaced at some point in the future, it might make sense to consider having both done at the same time. This will save you time, healing, and money by eliminating the second procedure.
Because it is less invasive, the All-on-4 treatment is considerably safer than other approaches; however, as with any medical procedure that involves a surgery, there is a general risk of infection, nerve damage, or bleeding. Inform your dental professional if you have allergies, or are prone to these conditions, as that will be taken into consideration when determining if the treatment is right for you.
