All-on-Four Implants
Corona

Over 35 million Americans currently suffer from missing teeth. However, thanks to ever-expanding options with dental implants, we can permanently replace all the missing teeth on the upper and lower arch. We provide All-on-4 implants in Corona, CA, an innovative new dental implant technique wherein it only takes four strategically-placed implants to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth, replacing all your missing teeth with minimal surgeries.

What Is All-on-Four?

All-on-4 is a groundbreaking dental implant technique that revolutionizes teeth replacement possibilities for edentulous patients, i.e., patients missing all their teeth. With All-on-Fours, the dentist needs to place four strategic implants in different parts of your jaws to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth. A natural-looking denture can be supported on as little as four implants, all of which can be placed in a single surgical session.

An implant is a titanium screw attached to the jawbone underneath the empty socket of a missing tooth. Your jawbone eventually heals around the implant, making it a firmly rooted part of your dental anatomy. Traditionally, one implant could only support one tooth replacement, i.e., a crown. Edentulous patients would have needed numerous implants on each arch to replace all the teeth, but the method of All-on-Four implants in Corona allows us to replace all the teeth with as little as four implants.

The All-on-Four Procedure

Step 1: Consultation & Preparation

Dr. Huston performs a comprehensive investigation and analysis to determine if you’re a viable candidate for all-on-fours. This requires numerous imaging tests, such as CT scans, 3D X-rays, and impressions of your teeth using dental models. In some cases, the dentist also has to remove one or two teeth because all-on-four is only suitable for patients missing all their teeth. Some patients might also need a preliminary bone grafting procedure to build up the jawbone.

Step 2: Surgery & Implant Placement

As mentioned above, implants replace the root structures of the missing teeth. Dr. Huston carefully examines your dental anatomy to identify the ideal positions for the four implants. The positions are strategically chosen to ensure maximum adherence, support, and longevity. Some patients might also need more than 4 implants. After the implants are surgically driven into the jawbone, the dentist attaches the abutments, i.e., the components that connect the implants to the prosthetics.

Step 3: Recovery & Prosthetic Placement

In most cases, the dentist attaches temporary crowns or prosthetics to the implants during the surgery. It takes up to 6 months for the jawbone to heal around the implants, making them firmly rooted parts of your dental anatomy. After the recovery, the dentist prepares a set of natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing dentures. Traditional dentures tend to slip and slide because they’re supported on the gums. However, implant-supported dentures are firmly attached, durable, and inflexible.

Candidates for All-on-Four

All-on-Four implants are suitable for edentulous patients, i.e., individuals missing all the teeth in the upper or lower (or both) arch. If you have one or two teeth left, the dentist might recommend tooth extraction to make you a viable candidate. The dentist will also gauge your jawbone density — if you have insufficient jawbone tissues, you may need a bone grafting procedure before getting implants.
