How All-on-4 Works

A Fixed Denture for an Entire Arch with Only 4 Dental Implants

The All-on-4 denture is a fixed denture that covers your entire upper or lower jaw by using only 4 dental implants. All-on-4 gives you a usable denture on the same day as your procedure. Your new denture is not just for looks, although it looks really good! Even more important, All-on-4 does not require bone grafting in advance, saving you both time and money, yet still giving you the benefits of an implant denture.

Benefits of Implant Dentures

  • An implant denture can be fixed in place. It does not rely on the shape of your jaw, putty, springs, or glue to stay put.
  • Implant dentures encourage strong jawbones by transmitting the forces from chewing into your jaw. That preserves bone and helps restore and maintain your appearance.
  • Once the implants are fully biointegrated, they have the same strength as your original teeth. You can eat the same foods you used to eat with a full set of teeth.

All-on-4 Is a Permanent Repair

The All-on-4 procedure creates a permanently fastened denture. It is not a snap-on denture that may pop on or off unexpectedly due to wear. All-on-4 is therefore the closest thing to real teeth that you can find from a Yuba City dentist.

On the day of your procedure, you receive a healing denture that you use for 4 to 10 months as your body solidifies the connection between your jaw and your new dental implants. After the healing period is complete, you return for the installation of your permanent denture. The cost of your procedure includes the installation of dental implants and the provision of both the healing denture and the permanent denture.
