Implant-retained prosthetics, such as Nobel Biocare's All-on-4 dental implants, are changing the lives of patients who have dentures. All-on-4 dental implants offer a comprehensive way to fasten dentures for a full-arch restoration. This treatment works by inserting the screws (implants) into four areas on each arch. In contrast to other implant dentures, All-on-4 utilizes fewer implants to get a secure fit. We generally recommend All-on-4 implants if you want a fully restored mouth without the hassle and dietary restrictions that come with removable dentures. Many San Diego, CA patients have enjoyed the advantages of the All-on-4 procedure because of the high-quality results. Want to learn more about All-on-4 implants and custom-made dentures? Give us a call to make an appointment at Dental Express!
For patients tired of dealing with removable dentures, All-on-4 implants might be a great choice. One of our dentists will place four titanium implants into your upper and lower arch. Generally, All-on-4 implants are more secure since they integrate into the bone and attach to custom dentures. You may be an good candidate for All-on-4 if you prefer the benefits of implant-supported dentures over removable dentures, which include no or few dietary restrictions, no messy glues, and no special cleaning. Additionally, patients will need sufficient bone and gum density to receive implants because the screws rely upon your gums and bone to hold them in position. If necessary, bone and/or gum grafts may be performed before implant surgery. We can determine if this procedure is best for you during your consultation.

"This is Joseph M. I don't have Yelp so I'm using my girlfriends. This team and office were so outstanding I felt I had to leave a nice review. I had an urgent issue with my teeth today and I couldn't find any dentist to take a look except for Dr. Marwa Najar. She made room for me in her busy schedule on such a short notice. Not only was she patient and careful she explained every step of the way thoroughly. She went above and beyond what I could afford and she didn't have to. She was professional, had a good sense of humor and showed a tremendous amount of empathy. I'm incredibly grateful and highly recommend Dr. Marwa Najar or any other incredible staff here."- A.B. / Yelp / Dec 02, 2019
What to Expect
First, we will take digital scans and x-rays of your teeth. After reviewing the x-rays, we will develop a unique treatment program and go over your options for sedation. During your first treatment, one of our dentists will place the implants. Once we anchor the implants, we place a temporary denture over the implant to allow your mouth to heal and give us time to create your custom dentures. In several months, you should return to have your custom dentures attached and fitted.
After implant surgery, you may feel some discomfort and pain in your gums. When wearing your temporary dentures, you will have a few diet restrictions and cleaning instructions to follow. Additionally, patients should come in for routine follow-ups throughout the healing process so we can check your recovery and make sure implants integrate into your bone socket and gums. As soon as your custom dentures have been set, you can clean them just like natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. You should continue to visit Dental Express for annual exams and biannual cleanings to maintain your dentures, and so we can monitor the health of your gums and jawbone.
Some insurance companies may provide partial coverage for custom dentures and All-on-4 implants. It's likely that you will have some personal expenses, but our staff will work with your insurance to maximize your coverage. If you don't have insurance, Dental Express accepts numerous payment methods, such as low-interest financing. Our team can help make the All-on-4 procedure fit into your budget.
