Did you know that more than 35 million Americans live without all of their upper and/or lower teeth? Living with tooth loss that is this significant affects the ability to eat and chew, not to mention the impact on self-esteem.

At Glen Park Dental, we can replace an entire dental arch of teeth in a single day, thanks to the All-On-4 restorative system.

What are All-On-4 implants?

The All-On-4 implant system includes the following parts:

  • Replacement teeth, matched in shape and color to look like natural teeth.
  • Four dental implants, which are installed at strategic locations in the mouth to support the replacement teeth.

All-On-4 implants prevent bone deterioration, which occurs over time in any person who experiences loss of permanent teeth because the jawbone is no longer stimulated by the roots of the now-missing teeth. This also protects the facial structure; many patients who receive All-On-4 implants report looking years younger following the installation of the implant system.

What can you expect from an All-On-4 procedure

We can replace an entire dental arch of teeth in a day.

First, impressions of your mouth are taken, and the four implants are installed. After the replacement teeth are made, they are installed by being permanently attached to the top of the implants.

With a regular dental implant, a patient could have to wait as long as 6 months to complete healing before a permanent tooth replacement is installed. The All-On-4 implant system uses smaller implants that do not have to be placed as deep into the jaw bone. An All-On-4 is also much more economical, compared to having a dental implant installed to replace each and every missing tooth.

A dentist who is an expert in restorative dentistry, and also has experience in oral surgery should perform the installation of an All-On-4 implant system. The staff at Glen Park Dental has the experience to perform this complex procedure.

If you have been living with the loss of all your teeth, regain your teeth, your smile, and your confidence with the All-On-4 system. Contact our office at (415) 585-1500 to schedule an appointment.
