One-Day Smile Restoration
All-on-4 is an implant-supported denture system. It replaces a whole arch of teeth with a denture that is supported by four to six dental implants. The restoration is permanently fixed, so there is no traditional denture to remove. Best of all, your restoration can be placed on the same day as your implants, so you don't have to wait to get the beautiful, functional smile you deserve.
All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are supported by gums, whereas All-on-4 restorations are load-supported by bone. This allows you to eat and speak just as if you had your natural teeth—nothing is off limits! Additionally, dental implants help to maintain the density of your bone structure, so you are less likely to have bone loss around your replacement teeth.
All-on-4 at La Paz Dentistry
During your initial consultation at our Laguna Hills dental office, Dr. Tanaka or Dr. Yang will review your expectations, cost/risk vs. benefit analysis, and medical viability of the procedure. As long as there is the ability to heal bone and can medically have a dental extraction, you can get implants.
Compliance with hygiene maintenance is essential to the long-term success of All-on-4 teeth replacement, so understanding the ongoing maintenance requirements is very important before committing to the procedure. This includes keeping the area around the dental implants clean using a water flosser or interproximal brush, as well as periodic visits to our office to monitor the health of your gums.
If you decide that All-on-4 is right for you, we will take 3D images and design a plan for the precise placement of your implants. With this computer-generated guide, four to six implants can be placed in about an hour, most times with no cutting or suturing. After the implants are placed, we can attach your dental prosthesis.
