The All-on-4® procedure is an alternative option for dental patients that’s great for patients with little jaw bone density. Instead of dealing with the inconvenience of removable dentures, this technique gives patients a new set of teeth that they can treat just like their natural teeth. The minimally invasive procedure is one of the most appealing options for those seeking to return their teeth to how they once were.

How the Procedure Works

Despite the impressive results, All-on-4 is a relatively simple procedure. It is similar to the traditional dental implant procedure, where just four dental implants are placed into the jaw to support a dental prosthesis or bridge. The implants actually fuse together with the bone, causing a strong and permanent hold. Poor jaw bone density is typically not a problem for candidates considering this procedure. In fact, it was developed specifically to be possible with minimal jaw bone density. The All-on-4® procedure boasts an impressive 98.5% success rate.
