All-on-4™ implant supported dentures are a great solution for patients who wish to experience the benefits of dental implants but have suffered bone loss. These are full denture implants that are comprised of a set of four strategically placed dental implants within each arch to get the most use out of available bone mass.

What is All-on-4™?
All-on-4™ full denture implants are designed for patients who have experienced bone loss but require tooth replacement with dental implants. Due to the specific placement of the implants, it is possible to maximize the use of available bone without undergoing a bone graft. Once in place, the implants are able to be used immediately. This treatment has been applied for over a decade with a 98.5 percent success rate after four years.
How does it work?
The All-on-4™ technique uses just four implants to stabilize a full denture. Implants are immediately functional and a temporary denture can be attached right away. In most cases, bone grafting is not necessary which makes this a great solution for patients with low bone density in the jaw.
Before the procedure, Dr. Staadecker will carefully examine the jaw bone to determine which areas have the highest bone density. Then, two implants are placed in the front of the jaw at 90 degree angles and two are placed in the back at 45 degree angles. In this way, it is possible to maximize bone to implant contact and prevent the implants and denture from coming loose.
Once the implants have been placed, a temporary denture will be attached for immediate use. After a period of three to six months, once the implants have been fully integrated in the jaw, a new permanent denture can be attached.
Full denture implants combine the convenience of dentures with the health benefits of dental implants. To learn more about All-on-4™ denture implants in Newport Beach, CA, contact Dr. Staadecker and schedule your consultation today!
Before & After All-on-4
Actual Patient: Mrs. M came to our office because she was dissatisfied with her existing dentures that moved around when eating and speaking. In her words, “my life was transformed in just one morning” after being treated with the All-on-Four™ implant treatment approach. Her teeth are non-removable and she can now eat apples like she did as a young adult after one morning of implant treatment.
