All-on-4 ®

Why All-on-4®?

Dental implants are the best solution for the loss of teeth, but not all patients are candidates for traditional implants. Patients who lack bone mass are often discouraged from implants or told they need to undergo time-consuming bone grafts.

For these patients, we suggest the All-On-4 ® method: a revolutionary process in implants that basically angles four implants into the jaw so even those with virtually no bone can securely support a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. Virtually anyone can have beautiful new teeth in a day — even if you have been told you are not a candidate for traditional dental implants.

What To Expect

Placing a dental implant is a relatively quick, minimally invasive procedure. Patients who come to Bergen Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery undergo a comprehensive evaluation that includes x-rays and a consultation with our Doctors.

The procedure to place implants typically requires less than an hour. Prior to surgery you may receive antibiotics and intravenous sedation or nitrous oxide, as well as a local anesthetic in the areas where the implants are placed.

Once you have received the implants, a restorative dentist will prepare an impression of your upper and lower jaws. This impression is used to make the model from which the crowns or dentures are created.

Follow-up examinations with Bergen Oral & Maxillofacial surgeons and a restorative dentist will take place to chart your progress.
