All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth, you might be interested in dental implants but have been told you require bone grafting.

Our All-on-4® method maximizes the existing bone tissue, allowing even more patients to qualify for this exciting procedure.

Sharp Smile Center serving Kalamazoo and Portage, MI, provides All-on-4 style implants to restore your smile with a shorter healing time.

Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you have researched dentures and implant-supported dentures, you may already know that implants are the only restorative dentistry treatment that can stop or prevent bone atrophy following tooth loss. While All-on-4 implants use the same titanium post as implant-supported dentures, there are a few key differences that make them a superior treatment option for patients with bone loss.

Accelerated Treatment

Since bone grafting is typically unnecessary for All-on-4 treatment, you can cut months of time from your implant treatment timeline. With our All-on-4 dental implants, you don't have to wait for the implants to fuse to the jawbone before your dentures are placed. Most patients leave the surgery with a secured set of temporary dentures while they wait for their permanent set.

Easier Recovery

Fewer dental implants mean a less invasive surgical procedure, which reduces your recovery time. Where traditional implant-supported dentures may require six to eight implants, All-on-4 uses just four per arch. By strategically placing the All-on-4 implants, patients can walk out with fixed dentures in as little as one appointment.

Improved Appearance 

All-on-4 dentures can restore the function and appearance of your smile. All-on-4 dental implant dentures are natural-looking, and you don't have to worry about them moving out of place when you talk or eat. Even better, you won't have to hide your smile any longer.

All-on-4 Procedure

During an initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate whether All-on-4 dental implants are the right dental solution for you. Dr. Sharp will assess your oral health and also go over your medical history. 

Implant procedures are technique sensitive and require a high level of precision. That's why we make it a priority to use the best technology in the dental industry for our implant patients in Kalamazoo and Portage.

High Tech Precision

Sharp Smile Center uses state-of-the-art digital imaging technology for diagnosis and treatment planning. This allows our dentists to craft a custom treatment plan to fit your unique dental needs. Planning begins by using cone-beam imaging to assess bone density and identify the ideal locations for your dental implants for maximum stability. 

Comfort First

The All-on-4 surgery can be performed under local anesthesia. However, our practice also offers sedation options to ensure your comfort. During surgery, four dental implants are placed along a full arch. Two of the four implants are placed at strategic angles to provide maximum support for the denture. Dr. Sharp creates custom surgical guides to use during this stage  to ensure the implants are placed at the optimum angle and depth.

Walk Out With a Smile

You won't have to go without teeth during the healing stage. As part of his planning, Dr. Sharp also designs a custom prototype denture made of high-quality PMMA acrylic. This temporary restoration is typically attached to the implants on the same day as surgery so you can enjoy the security of a fixed denture until your permanent restoration can be placed.

Do You Have Questions?

No Messy Adhesives!

Our All-on-4 dentures are natural-looking and will function much like natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that use messy adhesives, your All-on-4 denture will be anchored to implants just like other implant-supported dentures.

Does the All-on-4 Procedure Hurt?

During dental implant placement, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area, which is usually all patients need to feel comfortable throughout the procedure. However, we also offer sedation options to ensure you do not experience pain or discomfort during the procedure.

After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and discomfort during the healing process. This is typically manageable with over-the-counter pain medications.
