Find out more about All-on-4 dentures with Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

What are All-on-4 dentures?
All-on-4 dentures utilize dental implant technology to securely and permanently hold a denture in place. Implants, which dentists place within the jawbone during an oral surgery, integrate into the bone over time. This creates a permanent foundation on which the denture fits. Dental implants are safe and effective, requiring several appointments to place and maintain, but lasting a lifetime with the proper care. Since the implants replace the teeth's roots, they stimulate the bone enough to decrease the chances of bone atrophy. Additionally, replacing your missing teeth will make eating and speaking easier and more effective. All-on-4 fit permanently into the mouth, not requiring you to take them out for cleaning.

What can I expect from an All-on-4 procedure?
The procedure will take place in two main phases. The first phase will include the actual placement surgery and the healing time between the surgery and placing the denture. In some cases, your dentist may be able to place the denture immediately after placing the fixtures. Since the rear two implants lie at a 45-degree angle to take advantage of the remaining bone, bone grafting is not often required for an All-on-4 procedure. While the procedure will require significant healing times, your implants should last a lifetime and allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence for years to come.
