A Life-Changing Procedure

All-on-4 is a method of dental implantation in which the upper or lower set of teeth is replaced with just four strategically-placed implants that act as a support system for the placement of a new set of false, fixed teeth. This procedure restores the entire set of prosthesis teeth with only those four implants. The prosthesis remains in your mouth permanently and looks very natural.

Key Benefits to All-on-4

Dr. Maddahi's All-on-4 implants in Beverly Hills offer several key benefits:

  • A permanent alternative to dentures
  • Looks very natural
  • An entire set of teeth can be replaced in just one day
  • Restores function: you can eat foods that you otherwise couldn’t
  • Easy to clean 
  • Feel very strong and secure (no shifting around)
  • The healing process is shorter than with traditional implants
  • Patients feel revived and like themselves again

What’s the Difference Between Traditional Implants and All-on-4?

In traditional dental implants, each one has a small titanium screw that is inserted into the patient’s gums. The false teeth are then placed one-by-one to each screw. With the All-on-4 implant, the false teeth are not placed one-by-one. Instead, four titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone as the main anchors and support system for a permanent denture. With traditional implants, a full arch restoration requires 6-8 implants to support a full fixed bridge. With All-on-4, only four implants are needed for this. In addition, because All-on-4 is less invasive, the healing and rehabilitation process is shorter.

Who is a Candidate?

If you’re interested in the All-on-4 implants in Beverly Hills, you may be a candidate for this procedure if you:

  • Have lost all or most of your teeth 
  • Need to have all of your teeth removed
  • Have experienced bone loss 
  • Have enough bone available to hold the implants in place
  • Understand that you will not be able to see or feel the new teeth before the procedure
  • Understand that the implants cannot be placed in the molar area, where the bite is the strongest
  • Fully understand the procedure, risks, and what to expect

The All-on-4 Procedure

Be sure to arrange a ride home after your All-on-4 procedure because of the anesthesia. Whether you’re having your upper arch worked on, your lower arch, or both, just four implants will penetrate each arch. Before the procedure, you will be given anesthesia and any remaining teeth will be extracted. Incisions into the gums will then be created so that the titanium rods can be inserted. Your surgeon will then attach the titanium rods into these incisions, connect abutments to the rods, and stitch up your gums.

Recovery Following All-On-4 Implants

Your anesthesia will wear off in about 4-5 hours. Most patients are able to go back to work in 2-3 days, but must follow a liquid and soft food diet as they heal.

It’s incredibly important to closely follow your instructions, as the first three months after the All-on-4 procedure is the time in which your implants are integrating. After about six months, the implants will have integrated with your bone.

  • You’ll need to avoid activities that may disrupt the stitches
  • Brushing gently and patiently, with a soft toothbrush
  • Do not rinse with water on the first day
  • Avoid touching any tender areas 
  • Avoid smoking, as it will impact healing
