FaceLab Clinic is excited to offer our dental clients the new ‘All on 4 plus’TM procedure for permanent replacement of all teeth. All on 4 plus is a significant improvement over previous forms of full-mouth tooth replacement, including removable dentures and standard dental implants. For many years, removable dentures were the only option for people whose original teeth were in such poor quality that they required extraction. However, many people find dentures difficult to wear due to discomfort in the gums and the tendency for the dentures to move or fall out of place.

In the last decade or so, the popularity of dental implants has grown tremendously. This technology has allowed for the permanent replacement of teeth by means of inserting small metallic screws into the jawbone and then attaching the new teeth into place on them. Patients no longer have to remove their false teeth at night or worry about them falling out and causing embarrassment. One downside with the traditional dental implant approach for full-mouth tooth replacement is the requirement for inserting numerous pieces of hardware in the jawbone. The All on 4 plus procedure accomplishes the same thing most often with only four dental implants.

What is ‘All on 4 plus’ ™ ?

The term All on 4 means that our dental surgeon places an entire set of upper and / or lower teeth on four implants. Two are in the back of the jaw and two in the front of the jaw. What makes this process unique is that the back implants are tilted at a 45-degree angle rather than being installed vertically like those at the front. By angling the implants, our doctor is not hindered by bone deficiencies that most people have in the back of the jaw due to sinus spaces and poor quality bone. With traditional dental implants, many patients have to undergo bone grafting to prepare the back of the jaw to receive the implants.

Benefits of All on 4 Dental Implants

Because most of the time we use only four implants to help support the new teeth, it gives patients more freedom to choose the look and feel of the new teeth. They are easier to clean and maintain than removable dentures and conventional implants, making them so worry-free that you may even forget they are not your natural teeth. Having only four implants to keep your teeth in place means you can continue to enjoy the foods you love. Unlike removable dentures that can affect the way your speak and pronounce words, All on 4 implants and teeth have almost no impact on speech at all, and patients who have undergone these treatments often refer to having improved speech and eating ability following treatment.
