What Is the All-On-4 Dental Implant Procedure?

If you’re missing one or several teeth, you’re not alone. About 178 million people in the U.S. are missing one or more teeth, and 40 million are missing all their teeth. In the past, the only solution for missing teeth was dentures, but now dental implants are increasingly popular. As dental implants gotten more common, they’ve also improved, giving you an even better option when you want a way to improve your smile after losing teeth. The All-On-4 dental implant procedure is one example of a new take on the idea of dental implants. Here’s what you should know about All-On-4 implants before you decide which option is best for you.

Benefits of Hybrid All-On-4 Implants

  • You won’t need an implant for every tooth you lost.
  • The procedure typically costs less money and takes less time compared to installing a separate implant for every tooth.
  • It easier for you to get the smile you want as quickly as possible.
  • The titanium in the implants allows them to fuse to your jawbone over time so they eventually become part of it. This can help you avoid more jawbone loss in the future so you can retain the shape of your face, which means the area around your mouth won’t have the telltale sunken look it often does when people lose their teeth and part of their jawbone.

How It Works

Hybrid All-On-4 dental implants work similarly to traditional dental implants, but with a twist. First, you should know that a typical dental implant is a titanium screw that is secured to your jawbone in order to replace the root of your missing tooth. After a dental professional screws in the implant, he or she will cement a crown on top of it so it looks and feels like a real tooth.

But the Hybrid All-On-4 dental implant procedure is a little different, because it means you only need four implants for each jaw, not a separate implant for every missing tooth. So once you get four implants secured to your top jawbone and four secured to your bottom jawbone, you’ll have a full set of teeth that look realis

    Should You Get Hybrid All-On-4 Implants?

    Most adults who have lost their teeth could benefit from this procedure. In general, if you want to replace the teeth you’ve lost, but don’t like the idea of using dentures for life, dental implants are a good idea. The All-On-4 implants allow you to get the procedure done quickly and efficiently so you can start seeing results as soon as possible.

    At the same time, not everyone is a good candidate for this dental procedure. You need to be in good health overall, with a strong immune system and enough bone left in your jaw to support the implants. When you let your dentist know you’re interested in this dental option, he or she will perform some x-rays to determine if you have sufficient bone in your jaws, or if you’d need a bone graft first. Then you can start preparing to undergo the procedure—and look forward to getting the smile you want.

    Hybrid All-on-4 vs. Hybrid All-on-6 implants

    In addition to Hybrid All-on-4 dental implants, there’s another permanent solution for missing teeth: All-on-6 dental implants. Both types involve the same implant procedure and healing time, and both will restore the look and function of a full arch of natural teeth. However, there are differences between the two different dental solutions. 

    The primary difference is the number of implants involved. Hybrid All-on-4 implants use a total of four implants, with two near the back of the arch and two near the front. All-on-6 implants use six implants, with three on one side of the arch and three on the other side. 

    Another major difference between the two options is the prosthesis involved. Hybrid All-on-4 dental implants are used to secure a denture-like prosthesis, including gums and teeth. Hybrid All-on-6 implants are used to anchor multiple dental bridges.

    When deciding which option is right for you, keep in mind that using more implants will help distribute pressure and force more evenly throughout the arch, so if you’re looking for a more secure option, All-on-6 implants might be ideal. However, patients who might not have sufficient jawbone density to support several implants might do better with All-on-4 implants. Otherwise, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary. 


    Snap on Dentures vs. All-on-4 implants

    Like All-on-4 dental implants, snap on dentures are designed to replace a full arch of missing teeth. And while the All-on-4 implant prosthesis looks similar to dentures, there are significant differences between the two restoration options.

    Snap on dentures involve prosthetic teeth and gums attached to a plate that fits comfortably against the roof of your mouth. Instead of attaching to the mouth with adhesives like traditional dentures, snap on dentures are anchored with two to four dental implants with specialized implant abutments that snap the plate into place. 

    Snap on dentures are not permanent—you can snap them in and out for sleeping and cleaning. They are also much stronger and more durable than traditional dentures, and they won’t slip when talking or eating. Another advantage to snap on dentures is that because they involve dental implants that are fused into your jawbone, they prevent the natural deterioration of jawbone tissue that occurs when there is no natural tooth root or implant screw in place.

    There are a few things to consider when deciding between All-on-4 implants and snap on dentures. Because the denture plate covers the roof of your mouth, it will take some time to get used to talking normally with the dentures in place. All-on-4 implants are a bit trickier to clean as well. A water flosser is sometimes necessary for removing particles of food that become trapped under the prosthesis. Snap on dentures, in contrast, snap out for easy cleaning, although it’s still important to clean around the implant abutments because tartar buildup can prevent the denture from snapping into place correctly.

      Everyone was very friendly and professional, only two things on the negative, 1. They were 40 minutes behind my appointment time and never apologized, and I was a half hour early to do paperwork as instructed to do so, 2. Wanted to talk … More to me in front of other patients about my care and costs, should have somewhere private to do so, but other than that all good.

      Need a dentist? Five stars, baby! This morning I woke up with the most horrific toothache and thought I was going to end up in urgent care. I decided to called Dr Hage’s office and he made time for me within a couple hours. Dr Hage has … More great skills, he’s honest, has all the modern technology, and his whole staff is personable, professional, and always accessible (very important these days). The care you'll get here is excellent I have been a patient here for over 10 years (when Dr Patch was practicing) and Im one lucky girl to have found them. The hygienist is also very helpful, thorough and she remembers everybody! Truly grateful to have found this group of fantastic folks.
