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.

Learn how Dr. Steve Ollason at New Mexico Smile Center in Albuquerque, NM, can rebuild your smile with All-on-4 dental implants.

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.

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.

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.

Healthy Gums

Periodontal disease significantly impacts the health and strength of your smile. It must be treated before our dentist can proceed with All-on-4.

No Smoking

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.

Initial Consultation

Our dentist will evaluate your candidacy by reviewing your medical history and current oral health. Dr. Ollason can answer any questions you may have while discussing your dental goals.

Implant Surgery

On the day of surgery, our dentist will administer local anesthesia and sedation to ensure that you are relaxed and comfortable. Using the surgical plan created with our imaging software, Dr. Ollason will precisely place your dental implants. We use premium implants crafted by Straumann and other trusted manufacturers. 

Temporary Denture

Many patients will qualify to have a temporary restoration placed on the same day as surgery, allowing them to leave our Albuquerque, NM, dental office with a full set of teeth.

Healing Period

In the next four to six months, the bone tissue in your jaw will fuse with the dental implants in a process called osseointegration.

Final Restoration

Once osseointegration between your jawbone and your implants is complete, our dentist will place your permanent denture.
