All-on-4® Dental Implants

Bid farewell to the challenges of painful, failing, or missing teeth, uncomfortable dentures, and the self-consciousness caused by decayed teeth. Our office proudly offers the remarkable All-on-4® treatment, designed to provide you with a natural-looking, strong set of non-removable teeth. Supported by four or more dental implants, this innovative full-arch solution offers a life-like alternative that will revolutionize your dental experience.

It takes multiple dental appointments over several months to place All-on-4® implants, but the functional and natural-looking results are worth it!

Here’s how the process works.

  1. Consultation: the All-on-4® implant procedure is safe and effective, though it’s still vital that we ensure every patient is a good candidate to undergo the process. Dr. Charles Dennis consults with you thoroughly on what you can expect from the procedure, including its risks and benefits. He then follows up with X-rays and digital scans of your mouth. We examine the state of your teeth, jawbone, and mouth to ensure the environment can support All-on-4® implants.
  2. Preparatory Procedures: Depending on your oral health, Dr. Dennis may have to perform some preliminary procedures prior to the All-on-4® implant. For example, we may have to extract some remaining teeth to make room for the implants and permanent bridges. Bone grafts are possible at this point if your jawbone can’t support the implants, but the All-on-4® treatment minimizes and, in many cases, eliminates the need for bone grafting. This not only saves valuable time but also reduces financial burdens.
  3. Implant Placement: To guarantee your comfort during the procedure, we’ll give you a local anesthetic or even sedation if the surgery is complicated. We then place the four titanium implants in your jaw’s arches, two on the bottom and two on the top. We place the two back screws at an angle so they use as much bone as possible without the need for time-intensive bone grafts.
  4. Temporary Dentures and Recovery: We send you home with a set of temporary dentures over the implants, since the four posts won’t be ready for permanent dentures yet. Your jaw will need up to six months to recover from the surgery. During that time, the implants will fuse to your jawbone so they’re strong enough to hold the permanent dentures.
  5. Mouth Impressions and Implant Abutments: Once you return to the office, we take impressions of your mouth so we can fit you for permanent dentures. We also install small pieces called abutments in your four implants to hold the dentures.
  6. Permanent Prosthesis Placement: Once we have your custom-fitted dental prostheses, we place them into the abutments on the top and bottom of your jaw, ensuring you have the proper fit and bite. After that, your All-on-4® treatment is finished! You can go out and enjoy your functional and beautiful new smile!

The groundbreaking All-on-4® treatment ensures optimal functionality and stability, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and activities confidently. This process’s functional improvements are just the beginning of the comprehensive health, aesthetics, and confidence benefits you will experience. Say hello to a life-changing dental transformation by choosing Abington Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry for your All-on-4® journey.

Safe and Functional Single Dental Implants

We are also experts in placing single dental implants when you don’t need full-mouth implants.

Much like the All-on-4® treatment, our procedures begin with the placement of titanium posts into your jawbone, expertly performed under local anesthesia. Over the course of three to six months, these screws naturally fuse with the bone, creating a sturdy foundation. We securely attach a crown or artificial tooth to the top of the post, perfectly aligning with your gumline, just like a natural tooth.
