About All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants, manufactured by Nobel Biocare, provide an advanced way to replace a whole arch of missing teeth with the benefit of implant technology. This procedure works by surgically positioning four specially designed dental implants into strategic locations in the upper or lower arch, which are used to securely support a natural-looking set of beautiful replacement teeth. At Cranston Dental Group, our exceptionally skilled team can complete the entire All-on-4 implant procedure from the comfort and convenience of our dental practice. All-on-4 dental implants offer an alternative to removable appliances and may be an ideal solution for Cranston and Warwick, RI patients who have experienced total tooth loss.

Ideal Candidates for All-on-4
All-on-4 dental implants may be placed in the lower and upper arches to replace multiple teeth or a full arch of non-restorable or missing teeth. You may be a good candidate for All-on-4 treatment if you need to have most or all of your teeth replaced in an arch and prefer an implant-supported alternative to traditional, removable dentures. Unlike other implant options, All-on-4 implants can often be placed even if bone loss in the jaw has occurred. Many Cranston and Warwick, RI patients who choose this implant option are pleased by the biting stability, cosmetic appeal, and oral function improvements this tooth replacement option often provides.

What Is the Treatment Process?
On the day of your All-on-4 dental implants procedure, our team will numb the treatment sites and surgically position the dental implants in your jaw. We will then attach a temporary set of false teeth to your implants the very same day, which you'll wear while your implants integrate with the jawbone over the next few months. When your implants have solidly fused with the bone, we will remove the temporary teeth and attach a new, custom full-arch appliance. Our skilled team will adjust your replacement teeth as needed to ensure comfort and a natural-looking appearance for your smile.
Caring for All-on-4 Dental Implants
Following implant surgery, any jaw tenderness or swelling can generally be managed with over-the-counter pain medications or cool compresses against the face. Our team will show you how to properly care for your temporary and permanent replacement teeth with proper at-home care techniques. Unlike traditional removable tooth replacement options, All-on-4 dental implants and appliances do not require adhesive to remain secure and in place. Even with total-arch tooth replacement with implants, it is still important to attend regular dental cleaning and exam visits at Cranston Dental Group so that our team can monitor your implants, as well as supporting gum and bone tissues.
Is All-on-4 Covered by Insurance?
Before starting your care, our team will contact your insurance company to learn whether they will cover your All-on-4 treatment. If you do not carry insurance or if you have out-of-pocket costs, our team can help you find a payment solution compatible with your needs and budget. Cranston Dental Group accepts numerous payment methods, including low-interest medical financing, to help make your treatment as convenient and affordable as possible.
