All-on-4® in Houston, TX

For patients missing many or all of their teeth, the All-on-4 treatment concept is a life-changing opportunity to achieve a new, fully functioning smile. At Alfi Oral, Dental Implant & Facial Surgery, Dr. Alfi and Dr. Hassan use the latest imaging and surgical techniques available to provide patients with superior outcomes. By using only four dental implants, our oral surgeons can provide you with the healthy, beautiful smile you've always dreamed of. If you struggle with missing teeth or are looking for a healthier alternative to removable dentures, contact us to see how All-on-4 can restore your health and confidence.

What is All-on-4?

All-on-4 is a type of full-arch restoration procedure that involves using four dental implants to support a fixed denture. Designed by Nobel Biocare, this revolutionary solution helps patients who are struggling with missing teeth achieve a fully functioning, natural-looking smile after just one surgical visit.

Compared to a similar procedure that involves placing multiple individual implants to restore every tooth, full-arch restoration is faster and more cost effective because only one procedure is necessary. Traditional dental implant treatment typically requires bone grafting to improve bone density at the implant site. Even if bone loss has occurred, All-on-4 treatment eliminates the need for bone grafting because the implants are positioned at an angle in denser areas of the upper jaw bone.

Edentulous or soon-to-be edentulous patients are ideal candidates for dental implants and All-on-4 treatment. If you still have some healthy teeth in your mouth, you may only require a few individual implants or an implant-supported fixed bridge.

Benefits of All-on-4

  • Improve Oral Health

    • Dental implants fuse to the jaw and stimulate the bone while chewing, keeping it healthy. This prevents bone resorption caused by tooth loss, protecting your long-term oral health.
  • Restore Function

    • With strong dental implants supporting your new teeth, you can enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about slipping dentures or removable appliances.
  • Easy Maintenance

    • To maintain good oral hygiene, simply brush and floss your new teeth regularly, just like natural teeth. There are no special care routines or products necessary.
  • Convenience

    • Whereas removable dentures slip and must come out during meals, an implant-supported denture stays in your mouth at all times.
  • One Procedure

    • Only one surgical visit is necessary to place the dental implants. You can achieve a brand new set of teeth in just 1 day!

All-on-4 Procedure

Dr. Alfi or Dr. Hassan will design a custom treatment plan based on your needs during the consultation. The All-on-4 treatment only requires one surgical procedure and a healing period, while the implants fuse to the jaw bone. The total duration of this process can take anywhere from 4 to 6 months.

On the day of your procedure, we will administer the anesthesia to make sure you are comfortable. Your surgeon will extract any remaining teeth in the dental arch, place the dental implants, and attach a temporary prosthesis.

If your final prosthesis is ready by the time of surgery, we will attach it after we place the implants. Otherwise, you will visit your restorative dentist after the implants heal to receive your final prosthesis.
