All-On-4 – Belmont, MA

Replace an Entire Arch at Once

For dental implant work, you may think you need a post for each missing tooth. The truth, however, is more complex. All-On-4 in Belmont can actually replace a whole arch of teeth! That way, you’d get many new chompers with just four dental implants. The service would even let you avoid dentures’ downsides – slipping, falling, etc. If you’d like to learn more, our dentists will happily explain. Just keep reading or call us to book a consultation.

How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?

As you might know, dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement. They mimic natural tooth structure and fuse with your jaw over time. Still, placing a post for each empty socket can be inefficient. Dentists thus strive to get maximum use out of fewer implants.

All-On-4 implants are those that solve this use issue. Per their name, they’re four posts supporting an entire arch of new teeth. Two are placed toward the jaw’s front, and another two near the back at an angle. Once properly fused, all four secure a finalized, full denture.

Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?

If you’ve lost most or all teeth along an arch, you’re likely a good All-On-4 candidate. That said, there are other factors worth considering as well.

Firstly, you can qualify for All-On-4 implants even when ineligible for regular ones. They require less jawbone density due to being placed at an angle. As such, you could get them without the hassle of a preliminary bone graft.

Secondly, All-On-4 implants still depend on good oral health. You’ll need to maintain good oral hygiene for them to succeed. Plus, you must avoid bad lifestyle habits to prevent implant failure.
