All-on-4® Dental Implants

Patients often require a bone graft and several months of healing time before their traditional implants can provide function and comfort.

Dr. Daniel M. Whiteman offers All-on-4® dental implants that can support a full denture immediately following placement.

An Expedited Dental Solution With Life-Changing Benefits

Immediate Results

Traditional dental implants must integrate with the jaw over the course of several months before they can support a denture. If a patient needs bone grafting, the procedure will add months to the timeline. All-on-4 dental implants often eliminate the need for a bone graft due to special placement techniques.

Stability

If you’ve dealt with removable dentures, you understand how frustrating they can be when they slip out of place and require frequent adjustments. All-on-4 dental implants function like your natural teeth because they are anchored directly to the jaw. And because implants halt the bone atrophy that follows the loss of a tooth, you can expect to need far fewer adjustments.

Long-lasting Results

With proper care, All-on-4 dental implants can last a lifetime. The dentures themselves will need eventual replacement, but the implants can provide decades of invaluable benefits.

Broader Candidacy

Traditional dental implants often require bone grafting. But All-on-4 implants involve two posterior implants that are placed at angles to maximize contact with existing bone tissue, which often eliminates the need for a graft. This solution places a new set of fully functional teeth within reach for many who would otherwise have to wait close to a year!

Boosted Self-Esteem

Being able to once again speak clearly, enjoy any foods you like, and smile with complete confidence can do wonders for your quality of life. Meanwhile, the replacement teeth that make up your denture will be crafted to look completely natural!

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional dental implants require ample jawbone tissue for support. Patients with bone loss may need a bone graft to qualify for traditional implants. This adds several months to the dental treatment timeline. To replace all teeth on the upper or lower dental arch, six to eight implants are needed. Once the implants are in place, it can take about three to six months to completely fuse with the jawbone and become capable of supporting a denture.

All-on-4 Implants

All-on-4 dental implants require less bone tissue for support, so in many cases, bone grafting is not required for treatment. Once the four implants are in place, most patients can immediately begin wearing a temporary denture that will allow them to chew and speak properly.

Dr. Whiteman is the best dentist I've had in my life, bar none. He's compassionate, humane, conservative, and his technique appears excellent. His office staff is wonderful and takes great care of us. I can't recommend the place highly enough.

My family and I are longtime patients of Dr. Whiteman. He has never met a dental problem of ours that he has not solved, and he is always very thorough in discussing possible solutions/options. Both he and his entire staff are warm, welcoming and thoughtful. I cannot recommend Whiteman Dental too highly.

Are All-on-4 Dental Implants Right for You?

This tooth replacement solution can provide powerful benefits, but it is not for everyone. The best candidates:

Need a full-arch denture to replace the teeth on the top, bottom, or both arches

Have suffered a small degree of bone atrophy, but don't want grafting surgery

Are non-smokers in good overall health

Dr. Whiteman will thoroughly evaluate your candidacy during a consultation to determine if this or another solution is the best way to replace your teeth and meet your goals.

See the Difference

While it takes six to eight vertical traditional implants to support a full denture, two vertical and two angled implants are used to support dentures using the All-on-4 dental solution. The angled implants make this treatment accessible to those who have experienced moderate bone loss.

The All-on-4® Treatment Process

Planning

If Dr. Whiteman determines this solution is right for you, he will begin planning your treatment. This will involve taking x-rays and digital impressions of your gums and any remaining natural teeth.

Anesthesia

Anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area. A sedation method of your choice can also be administered at this time for maximum comfort.

Incision

The dentist will create four incisions in the gum tissue before inserting the implants, which act as prosthetic tooth roots.

Placement

The implants are placed into the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Once the implants are firmly in place, Dr. Whiteman attaches a temporary denture. If you have previously worn dentures, it may be possible to modify your existing dentures to fit your implants. If not, he will have a custom denture created ahead of time.

Recovery

The implants fuse to the jawbone over the next few months. Once this process is complete, Dr. Whiteman can provide permanent dentures.

Sedation Can Maximize Your Comfort

We understand that many of our patients feel anxious in the dentist's chair, while others have conditions such as arthritis that make it uncomfortable to sit for long periods. Our dentistry office provides a range of sedation options to ensure your comfort at all times during treatment. If you feel sedation dentistry or any other accommodations would help you feel more comfortable under our care, please let us know. Dr. Whiteman in Brookline, MA, is known for going the extra mile when it comes to patient satisfaction.
