Dentures have been a go-to solution for patients who need replacement teeth since the 1700s, when George Washington made them popular. One of the custom solutions available to dentures patients is called the "All-on-4" technique. Learn more about this special procedure and how it can benefit you from Rancho Cucamonga, CA dentist Dr. John Stockdale, D.D.S.

What is the All-On-4 Denture Technique?
Standard dentures are designed to fit over the jawline with an adhesive. With the All-on-4 technique, the dentist uses four dental implants, carefully installed in certain places throughout the jawbone, to support a denture appliance. Once the implants are securely in the jaw, the denture can be attached to the top with four screws. It’s a straightforward and more permanent solution for people who need tooth replacements and don’t want to deal with the inconveniences and potential embarrassment that comes with removable denture appliances.

Are You a Candidate for this Solution?
Every person's mouth is different, so not everyone will be the best candidate for All-On-4 dentures. Rancho Cucamonga, CA dentist Dr. Stockdale will do an initial examination and review your X-rays to make a decision on whether this system is right for you. The first requirement for this denture solution is that a full row of teeth needs to be replaced. The All-On-4 denture is made to fit over the entire jawline. The second requirement is that your gums and jawbone have to be in good condition—the bone has to be strong enough to heal over the implants and hold them in place.
