All-on-4 Dental Implants

Patients with missing teeth can experience a host of benefits with dental implants, but not all patients qualify for traditional implants.

Using the All-on-4® method, patients who would otherwise need bone grafting may qualify for dental implants right away.

Dr. David J. Tasch and Dr. Mike Meek in Austin, TX, can perform this advanced dental implant procedure to make you smile again.

All-on-4 Candidacy

The best candidates for this treatment are:

In Good General Health

To qualify for All-on-4 treatment, you should be healthy enough to undergo oral surgery. Diabetic patients will need to have stabilized glucose levels. Smokers will need to cease smoking since smoking has been linked to an increased risk of implant failure.

Committed to Good Oral Health

Maintaining good oral hygiene is critical to your oral health. It is important to practice good oral hygiene after receiving dental implants and your denture to not only keep your mouth healthy, but also maintain your beautiful new smile for years to come.

Dealing with Some Degree of Bone Loss

Because this treatment can derive sufficient support from a compromised jawbone, it is a great option for patients with a small degree of jawbone recession. During the procedure, one of our dentists will place the two posterior implants at a 45-degree angle, making maximum contact with your existing bone tissue.

Have Significant Tooth Loss

All-on-4 dental implants and implant-supported dentures are for patients who suffer from significant tooth loss. This dentistry treatment is designed to restore an entire dental arch, so patients who require extraction of any remaining teeth can also benefit from this restorative treatment option. A single missing tooth or a few missing teeth can benefit from an implant-supported crown or bridge.

What to Expect During Your All-on-4 Treatment

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation, you will meet with your dentist. He will examine your mouth and overall health to determine if you are a candidate for All-on-4 dental implants. X-rays and a 3D CT scan are performed to get a complete picture of your mouth and jaw for optimal placement of your dental implants.

Impressions

Impressions are taken of your mouth to guide technicians in crafting your custom dentures. Your dentures will be hand-finished before they are returned to our Austin dental practice. This typically takes a few weeks. Each individual tooth within your new denture will look completely natural.

Anesthesia

Before your surgical procedure begins, your dentist will numb your mouth using a local anesthetic so you do not feel any pain. If you require a higher level of comfort or you suffer from dental anxiety, we offer oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide to help you feel at ease.

Dental Implant Placement

Once you are properly numbed, your dentist will place four dental implants directly into the jawbone along the upper or lower arch. 

Denture Placement

Once the implants and abutments are in place, your dentist will secure your dentures to the dental implants using tiny screws. Your dentures will remain in place at all times except for routine exams and cleanings by your dentist.

Recovery

During the recovery period, your implants will fuse to the jawbone. This typically takes about three to six months. It is normal to experience some discomfort and swelling while you heal, and this can be easily managed at home with comfort measures such as over-the-counter pain meds and ice. Your dentist may prescribe pain medication if needed.
If you experience significant pain during recovery that cannot be managed at home, please call our Austin, TX, dental practice immediately. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have about the All-on-4 process and help you schedule your consultation. Send us a message today to get started!

There’s a reason this dental office has such great reviews. The people there are not only extremely good at what they do, but they’re personable and kind. The nurse and doctor patiently listened to me about my complaints and took my pain seriously (which they fixed 100%). I no longer dread going to the dentist.
