What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® dental implants are uniquely designed to use just four implants that provide immediate functionality. With the All-on-4® technique, there is usually no need for bone grafting. This makes it an ideal solution for patients who have lost bone mass for any reason.
How does it work?
Before starting the procedure, Dr. Kharmouche will administer a local anesthesia to reduce any pain or discomfort that may occur. Then, four dental implants will be placed in specific strategic locations. Two implants in the front of the mouth will be placed at 90 degree angles wherever bone mass is highest. Then, two more implants will be placed in the back of the mouth at 45 degree angles. This will allow the implants to absorb natural bite forces without coming loose.
After the implants have been placed, a temporary set of dentures will be attached and ready to use that same day. After a period of three to six months, the implants will become fully integrated and a permanent set of implant supported dentures will be put in place.
