Missing an entire arch of teeth can significantly affect your health, comfort, and confidence. And if you have jawbone recession, you might have been told you do not qualify for dental implants.
All-on-4® is an innovative dental implant placement technique offered at Malki Dental. It allows our team to restore a full arch of teeth on four implants – in just one day.
Why does Dr. Malki highly recommended All-on-4 for his patients in River Edge, Paramus, and Bergen County, NJ?
All-on-4 Offers Distinct Advantages
Two implants are placed at an angle to maximize the existing jawbone tissue, often eliminating the need for bone grafting.
A high-quality temporary denture can be placed the same day as your procedure so you never have to go without a complete smile.
Since fewer implants and preparatory procedures are needed, the All-on-4 method is typically a lower cost implant treatment.
How do All-on-4 implants work?
A Reliable Solution
Do I Qualify for All-on-4?
The All-on-4 method is designed for patients missing most or all of their teeth. But while it is more accessible than traditional implants, the technique is not appropriate for everyone. In some cases, extensive bone loss in certain areas of the jaw may still necessitate a bone graft.
In order to determine if All-on-4 implants are a good fit, Dr. Malki will meet with you during a consultation at our office. After a discussion of your health history and goals for treatment, we will use our 3D cone beam imaging system to take a three dimensional image of your teeth, gums, and jaw that we can use to plan your treatment.
The doctor will also perform a comprehensive examination of your smile to check for gum disease or other health conditions. We can provide treatment for these problems before your procedure to maximize your chance of success.
The Treatment Process
At Malki Dental, you can undergo the entire implant treatment at our office. Dr. Malki can plan your care and perform any preparatory procedure you need, including bone grafts and periodontal treatment.
The All-on-4 implant procedure can make treatment more accessible to those who have lost bone tissue.
On the day of your procedure, we will first make sure you are completely comfortable. Then, Dr. Malki will make small incisions in your gums to access the jawbone and strategically embed four 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 take advantage of the densest bone tissue and create a stable foundation for your dentures.
If you qualify for immediate placement, Dr. Malki will attach a temporary restoration to your implants on the same day as your surgery. 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. When your implants are healed, we will take digital impressions and then craft and place your final restoration.
