What Are All-on-4 Implants?

what are All-on-4 implants

  • It is a full mouth restoration procedure where four dental implants or artificial root screws support the full-arch prosthesis/denture.
  • It consists of 2 front implants and 2 rear implants. While the front ones are placed vertically, the rear ones are tilted for better support.
  • Teeth implants mimic your natural tooth roots. Along with the jawbone, they form a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
  • Unlike dentures, 4 on 1 implants won’t wobble or shift in your mouth, allowing you to speak and eat comfortably.
  • A dentist will examine your case to confirm your need for All-on-four implants.

Stepwise Procedure of All-on-Four Treatment

Depending on the case and individual preference, the All-on-four procedure can be completed in 1 to 3 visits.

All-on-4 procedure

Step 1: Evaluation and Treatment Plan

The dentist will examine your oral cavity. They will take pictures, CT scans, and X-rays to plan the treatment. In addition, they will take note of your pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, allergies, etc.

Step 2: Preparation

The dentist will perform optional or prerequisite procedures that may increase the success of implants. Procedures such as scaling, RCT, and filling reduce the chance of infection.

Step 3: Implant Placement

Your dentist will give you local anesthesia or conscious sedation as required. They will use a dental drill to make space for implants.

Implant placement in All-on-4

Implants will be placed in the bone, on top of which artificial teeth arch (acrylic prosthesis/ denture) will be fitted.

You can start using your new teeth for eating after the anaesthesia wears off . Learn what to eat after surgery here.

The implants will take 6-9 months to heal (depending on your case). During these months, the implants and the jawbone integrate with each other in a process known as Osseointegration.

For candidates with average biting force, the acrylic denture may be the last step of this procedure. If you have a strong biting force or chew hard food, you may need a porcelain denture, which is placed after your implants have healed.

Step 4: Porcelain/ Permanent Denture (Optional)

After your bone has healed, you can schedule another appointment for porcelain prosthesis/ permanent denture. Porcelain prosthesis/ denture is stronger and is recommended if your biting forces are strong.

Bone Loss After All-on-4 Treatment

On losing teeth, bone loss in the surrounding area is inevitable, which causes facial shrinkage. All-on-four minimizes bone loss and also reduces facial shrinkage as a result.[2]American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

Cost It depends on the dental condition. For example, the need for pre-surgery procedures like sinus lift and bone graft may increase the cost of crown on implants. All-on-4 does not require these procedures. Also, the brand of implants plays a major role.
Infection Control Infection may occur due to poor oral hygiene. In the case of All-on-4, the denture is removed to control the infection. In the case of crown on implants, only the affected crowns are removed, making it relatively easier to cure the infection. Learn more about infections in All-on-4.

Post-Surgery Complications

Immediate problems after surgery

Bleeding at the implant site

Bleeding may occur for the first 2 weeks after surgery. Apply pressure at the bleeding region with a clean gauze for 20 minutes to stop bleeding.

Swelling and bruising

These symptoms are normal and can last for 2 – 3 days following the surgery. You may apply ice packs intermittently to reduce swelling.

Pain

Pain may last for a few days after the surgery. Your dentist will prescribe you pain relievers to decrease the pain.

Long-term problems

Although All-on-4 has a high success rate, it is good to stay informed about the problems that may arise after your surgery. The knowledge of the possible problems will also help you take better care of your implants.

Breaking or loosening of artificial teeth

Problems in All-on-4 treatment

Your dentist can fix the loose denture by tightening the screws. Fracture in the denture may happen due to tooth grinding (bruxism) or biting on something too hard. [5]PubMed – NCBI.

Infection

Infection in gums:

  • Infection in gums arises due to poor oral hygiene. Symptoms include inflammation, bleeding or pain in gums, bad breath, pus, and fever. A gum infection requires immediate medical attention else it may spread to implants.
  • Your dentist will prescribe antibiotics and may remove the permanent denture to treat the infection. The denture is fixed back again after the infection is cured. 

Infection in implants:

  • Poor oral hygiene can result in infection around implants. You should consult your dentist immediately if you experience inflammation, bleeding or pain in gums, bad breath, pus, and fever. 
  • Your dentist may recommend implant curettage (cleaning around the implant) along with antibiotic treatment. If these methods fail to control the infection, they may have to remove the implant. [6]PubMed – NCBI.

Poor healing

In rare cases, the implant may fail to osseointegrate. It may be the result of smoking or an unhealthy diet.

Implant failure

Dental implants have a high success rate and implant failure is extremely rare. Implant failure may occur due to peri-implant infection, chewing tobacco, smoking, or failed osseointegration.

Do All-on-4 implants minimize bone loss?

Yes. Dental implants replace the natural tooth roots and exert appropriate forces required to maintain the bone in the surrounding region. As a result, they are effective in minimizing bone loss. [2]American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

How long does it take to complete the All-on-4 surgery?

Scenario 1: When pre-surgery procedures are not needed

Your surgery might be completed within 24 hours, giving you “new teeth in a day”.

Scenario 2: When pre-surgery procedures are needed

You can read the steps involved in the surgery here.

It is suggested to stay for a week following the surgery to get proper post-treatment care if needed.

What should I eat after dental implant surgery?

First 24 hours after surgery

Soft foods like cereal, mashed potatoes, boiled vegetables, and ice cream Hard and sticky foods like meat, candies, nuts, and cheese
Cold foods/ liquids like shakes and smoothies Hot/ spicy foods and aerated drinks

24 – 48 hours after surgery

How can I keep my mouth clean after the implant surgery?

Follow an oral hygiene routine strictly to avoid infections.

  1. Brush your mouth softly after every meal, making sure your gums don’t get hurt. Hard brushing can be bad for implants.
  2. Rinse your mouth twice a day with a non-alcohol mouthwash.

What else should I know about taking care of my implants?
