All-on-4 Q & A

What is All-on-4?

All-on-4 is a dental implant system created by HiossenⓇ, a leader in the dental implant industry. This system replaces a full upper or lower arch of teeth using just four individual dental implants in the top or bottom jaw.

This system offers the chance to restore your smile without requiring individual dental implants for each and every tooth. It’s a great alternative to dentures and a popular treatment option for individuals who are considering full mouth restoration services. 

How does the All-on-4 dental implant system work?

The process begins with a comprehensive dental exam and imaging. This gives your provider the information needed to determine which restoration approach offers the best potential results. 

In order for All-on-4 dental implants to be a good fit, it’s important that you have sufficient bone tissue to securely anchor the four dental implants. The All-on-4 system uses implants placed in the front portion of your jaw, where most people have the highest degree of bone density. 

The front two implants are placed at an angle that closely aligns with the angle of your natural teeth. The back two implants, however, are angled toward the rear of your mouth to provide the greatest support for the arch of false teeth. 

The angled positioning means that less bone is needed to anchor those implants. This makes  All-on-4 a great option for people who might not have enough bone tissue for traditional individual implants.

On the day of your procedure, you can have a set of temporary teeth attached to the implanted posts. Once your permanent set of teeth are crafted by the lab and your bone tissue has fused to the implants, you’ll return to have the permanent set attached.

How long do All-on-4 dental implants last?

The All-on-4 dental implant system is designed to last a lifetime. With proper care, your implants will restore your smile, allow a healthy bite, and preserve normal eating and speech patterns for the rest of your life.

While your new smile will never be subject to decay, it’s important to understand that you still need to embrace a solid daily dental hygiene routine. Unlike traditional dentures, you won’t be able to remove your teeth for cleaning, and allowing plaque and bacteria to accumulate can cause or worsen gum disease.

Untreated gum disease can eventually weaken your bone tissue, which in turn can destabilize the connection between bone and implant. Your provider will advise you on how to care for your All-on-4 system to prevent negative outcomes.
