All-on-4 Dental Implants
Missing teeth can make everyday tasks like eating and speaking difficult. Left untreated, tooth loss can also lead to serious health issues.
All-on-4® dental implants can restore the smiles of qualifying patients faster than traditional implant procedures.

The Restorative Power of All-on-4 Dental Implants
If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth, an implant-supported denture offers an unrivaled level of stability and strength. However, for patients who have lived with missing teeth for some time, there may not be enough tissue in their jaw to support traditional implants due to bone loss.
All-on-4 dental implants can restore an entire arch of missing teeth using just four precisely placed dental implants, even if you have suffered some bone atrophy following tooth loss. Once the dentist has placed the implants, they are usually capable of supporting a full-arch denture right away. Dr. Steve Ollason offers this advanced dental implant treatment concept at our Albuquerque, NM, dental practice to patients who would otherwise require bone grafting and a treatment timeline of up to a year.
What Is All-on-4?
All-on-4 is a unique method of implant placement that uses two vertical and two angled implants to support a full upper or lower denture. A denture traditionally needs six to eight implants. But by placing the posterior devices at an angle, All-on-4 maximizes implant contact with the jaw for outstanding denture stability. This less invasive treatment method has a 10-year success rate of 94.8 percent.

Candidates for All-on-4
Dentures supported by All-on-4 implants are often an excellent option for those who lack sufficient bone density for traditional implant placement techniques. However, All-on-4 is not right for everyone. Our dentist will review your medical history to ensure that you are in good overall health and that no medical conditions could increase the risks associated with oral surgery.
Other factors that patients of our Albuquerque, NM, dentistry practice should consider before moving forward with All-on-4 include:
Extensive Tooth Loss
Implant-supported dentures are designed to benefit those who are missing most if not all of their natural teeth.
Periodontal disease significantly impacts the health and strength of your smile. It must be treated before our dentist can proceed with All-on-4.
Smoking has a negative effect on your body's ability to heal and can increase your risk of experiencing implant failure. Smokers will need to quit months before surgery and should plan to drop the habit for good.
All-on-4 dental implants are truly life-changing for patients with missing teeth. However, they are a significant financial investment as well. Patients interested in All-on-4 should be prepared to pay several thousand dollars out-of-pocket.
All-on-4 Treatment Can Provide Teeth in a Day
Qualifying patients can have a temporary denture placed the same day as surgery.
