All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Tooth loss can occur for many reasons, including gum disease, trauma, and severe tooth decay.
No matter what the cause, replacing your missing teeth is essential for restoring the functions of your mouth, your oral health, and your quality of life.
Dental implants have become one of the most popular solutions for replacing missing teeth and can be used to replace a single tooth or a whole arch.
At Revive Dental and Implant Center, we offer many implant solutions, including the All-on-4 treatment concept.>> Read more about the dentures vs. All-on-4.

What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants also referred to as implants, involve the use of surgically implanted titanium posts to secure false teeth into place in your mouth. During the recovery phase, your bone starts to fuse to the posts within your jaw. This is known as osseointegration.
Osseointegration allows the posts to provide incredible stability for your new teeth. Thanks to dental implants, we can provide tooth replacement for many different situations. >>Read more about who is a candidate for dental implants?.
Why Your Jawbone Matters
Your jawbone is an important factor in dental implant success. There needs to be enough bone in your jaw for osseointegration to occur. However, without teeth, the bone starts to lose mass and grows weak.
If there is too little bone mass, osseointegration cannot properly, or at all, resulting in wobbly restorations or even complete implant failure.
Bone grafting is a common solution for making implants possible following the loss of too much bone mass. A graft, which requires additional surgery, is a procedure that places bone mass, either from you or from a donor, into the affected regions of your jaw.
Following this procedure, your jawbone regains strength. This helps to increase the success of tooth replacement with dental implants.
Avoid the Need for More Surgery
While bone grafting can help to increase the success of implants, additional surgery can be a major drawback for many patients. Bone grafting tacks on more to your final bill.
For those missing all teeth in their upper or lower jaws and who do not have enough mass remaining in the jaw, the need for a graft can be too much.
What if you could replace your arch of missing teeth without the need for an invasive, expensive graft?
The All-on-4 treatment concept enables you to do just that. With just four implant posts, we can provide you with an implant solution.
You will not need to be stuck with traditional dentures, nor do you need a bone graft.
With All-on-4, we insert two posts at the front of the mouth and two at the back. The two posts at the back are angled to 45-degrees, which ensures there is sufficient contact between them and your remaining bone mass. This assists in proper osseointegration, increasing implant success.
Benefits of All-on-4
The All-on-4 treatment concept provides you similar benefits to other implant solutions.
They are more comfortable, they look completely natural, and they are considered a permanent answer to tooth loss.
There are also other benefits unique to this treatment. First, you need fewer posts.
Fewer posts mean that you require less surgery. With less surgery, your recovery time is shorter.
You also avoid the need for additional surgeries, such as bone grafting, ridge augmentation, or a sinus lift.
All of these factors also help to contribute to a lower cost than a regular implant supported denture.>> Read more about the benefits of All-on-4.
