All-on-4 Dental Implants

Have you looked into dental implant-supported dentures only to be told that you would need a bone graft in order to qualify?

All-on-4® is a dental implant placement technique that can replace a full arch of teeth, often without the need for a bone graft.

At Malki Dental in Bergen County, NJ, Dr. Stephen J. Malki can restore your smile with All-on-4 dental implants.

Why does Dr. Malki recommend All-on-4 for our patients in River Edge, Paramus, and Bergen County, NJ?

All-on-4 Offers Distinct Advantages

Fewer Implants

Four to five implants are placed, some at an angle, to maximize the existing jawbone tissue, often eliminating the need for bone grafting.

Immediate Results

A high-quality temporary prosthesis can be placed the same day as your procedure so you never have to go without a complete smile.

Can Treat More Patients

If you have jawbone recession, you might have been told you do not qualify for traditional dental implants. In these cases, All-on-4 dental implants may be a good alternative for you.

Lower Cost

Since fewer implants and preparatory procedures are needed, the All-on-4 method is typically a lower cost implant treatment than full arch replacement with traditional dental implants.

How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?

All-on-4 implants are strategically placed to maximize contact with the remaining bone tissue.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants

All-on-4 implants

All-on-4

With this technique, we can anchor your denture with only four strategically placed implants. All-on-4 is specifically designed to maximize contact with your available bone tissue to achieve stability. The two back implants are placed at an angle, rather than vertically. This means that some patients with jawbone atrophy can qualify for this treatment without undergoing preparatory dentistry procedures like bone grafting or a sinus lift.

Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional dental implants can require the placement of six to eight implants per arch, but it is important to note that the number of dental implants depends on the unique case. These dental implants are placed straight into the bone rather than at an angle. Because of the vertical placement and number of implants required, this treatment option requires more bone density. As a result, many patients require bone grafting, a sinus lift, or both.

The Treatment Process

At Malki Dental in River Edge, NJ, serving Paramus and other areas of Bergen County, you can undergo the entire implant treatment process at our office.

Planning & Preparation

Dr. Malki can develop a surgical plan, create a surgical guide, and perform any preparatory procedure you need, including bone grafts and periodontal treatment.

Anesthesia

On the day of your dental procedure, we will first make sure you are completely comfortable by administering local anesthesia. Sedation can also be provided, if necessary.

Incisions

Next, Dr. Malki will make small incisions in your gums to access the jawbone.

Implant Placement

Dr. Malki will strategically embed four or five implants into the jaw. With the All-on-4 method, the two implants in the back of the jaw are placed at an angle to maximize contact with the remaining bone tissue and create a stable foundation for your dentures.

Immediate Dentures

If you qualify for immediate placement, Dr. Malki will attach a temporary prosthesis to your implants on the same day as your surgery.

Osseointegration

After implant placement, it takes three to six months for the implants to fuse with the surrounding bone tissue. This process, known as osseointegration, ensures your implants are stable enough to support your permanent dentures.

Custom Dentures

When your implants are healed, we will take digital impressions of your mouth at our practice so your custom denture can be fabricated to fit over your gums and look like natural teeth. The dentures will be crafted according to these impressions for a precise and comfortable fit.

Recovering after Surgery

We don't recommend heading straight to the steakhouse right after surgery. Instead, plan to go home and rest for a few days, eating only soft foods.

Although you will leave our office with a fully restored smile and stable dentures, you must remember that your implants and jaw are still becoming integrated, the recovery time for which will take about three to six months.

This doesn't necessarily mean an occasional steak is off limits while you heal, but it does mean you must take time to cut it into very small pieces in order to avoid straining the implants and bone tissue.
