All on 4 implants is a cutting-edge tooth replacement option that utilizes just four dental implants to secure a full row of prosthetic teeth. One dental implant is usually needed for each individual tooth being replaced. With All on 4 technology, only a minimal number of implants are needed. All on 4 is available at Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, MD where Dr. Frederick Asuncion can determine if you are a candidate for this exciting tooth replacement option.

All on 4 Tooth Replacement

All on 4 utilizes four strategically placed dental implants to securely anchor bridgework or dentures in place. Dental implants are small metal posts that function similarly to the roots of natural teeth. They are surgically placed in bone tissue, which is one of the reasons dental implants are so durable and strong.

Natural teeth each have their own individual root to hold them in place. With All on 4 implants, it is possible to replace most or all of the teeth along the top or bottom arch with only four dental implants rather than needing one for each artificial tooth. This is possible due to the location in the jaw where the implants are placed, as well as the angle at which they are positioned in the jawbone.

Candidates for All on 4, and dental implants in general, must have healthy gums, and enough bone density to support placement of the implants. The skilled dentist at our office in Frederick can determine if All on 4 implants is an option for you.

Benefits of All on 4

All on 4 delivers numerous benefits. Since just four dental implants are able to secure a full row of replacement teeth, fewer surgical incisions are needed. Additionally, the implants have more contact with bone tissue because they are placed at an angle. More contact means they are even more secure because the implant and bone naturally fuse together over time. Additionally, since your dentures are anchored by implants, they will remain in place without the use of an adhesive. Plus, you never have to take out your dentures.

Another benefit of All on 4 implants is that they help preserve bone tissue, which is important because bone loss often occurs following tooth loss. Regular dentures not supported by dental implants can actually contribute to bone loss due to the constant pressure of the dentures pressing down. As bone disappears, many patients need to have their dentures relined. All on 4 does not put pressure on the gums or jawbone so there is never a need to have your dentures repeatedly relined.

All on 4 implants is a state-of-the-art solution to tooth loss. You can restore your smile and regain normal tooth functioning. Schedule a consolation with Dr. Asuncion to learn more about All on 4 by calling Asuncion Dental Group in Frederick, MD at (301) 620-8882.

More about All-On-4 Implants

So, what’s so special about All-On-4 dental implants? This new system only requires 4 dental implants to support a full denture, instead of 6 to 8 dental implants.

All-On-4 dental implants can do a lot for you, including:

  • Save you money, because there are fewer dental implants placed, making them far less expensive than traditional dental implants
  • Give you a beautiful, natural-looking, full smile, because the implant materials look just like natural teeth
  • Provide great stability, because the dental implants are placed at an angle, giving them greater contact with the bone
  • Produce quick results, because dental implant treatment only takes 2 to 3 hours per arch

Dental implants may even help you look younger, by helping you produce more bone which fuses with the dental implants. More bone means a firmer jawline and more youthful facial contours, with less facial sagging that can happen with dentures.

Dental implants also fit in with your lifestyle, because you brush and floss them just like your natural teeth. With implants, you won't have to suffer the embarrassment of removing them for cleaning, or when you sleep. Imagine the convenience of having a permanent complete smile that is always in place!
