Smiling All-on-4 patient

All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you are missing most or all of your teeth, dental implants are an amazing treatment option to restore your smile. 

However, patients with jawbone deterioration may not initially qualify without bone grafting. 

Learn how Drs. Thiago Morelli and Teebok Choe in Raleigh, NC, can place implants without bone grafting using the All-on-4® method. 

What is All-on-4?

Traditional implant dentures require six to eight dental implants per arch, and many patients will not qualify for treatment without preparatory bone grafting to build up the jawbone.

All-on-4 is a method of implant placement that needs fewer implants, and less bone tissue. With All-on-4, your dentist will strategically place four implants along a single arch. Two of these implants are inserted at an angle to maximize your existing jawbone. A set of dentures is then attached to restore the function and appearance of your smile.

See How All-on-4 Dental Implants Work

Your dentist surgically inserts four implants directly into the jaw. Two of these are placed at a strategic angle. In most cases, a temporary denture is then attached to the implant posts on the day of implant placement.

Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants

Same-Day Restoration

All-on-4 typically places a temporary denture on the same day as implant surgery, meaning you don't need to go without a smile while your implants heal. 

Restored Function

For patients missing most or all of their natural teeth, All-on-4 dental implants paired with a custom denture can restore the function of their smile. 

Restored Appearance

Patients with missing teeth often report feeling self-conscious about their smile. Implant-supported dentures can give you the smile you've been dreaming of.

Maximum Stability

Traditional dentures rely on suction and denture adhesive and can slip when you eat or speak. Implant-supported dentures are secured to the implants for maximum stability.

No Preparatory Bone Grafting

The All-on-4 method can help patients with mild-to-moderate jawbone loss qualify for dental implants without preparatory bone grafting. 

Jawbone Health

Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry procedure that can stop and prevent jawbone atrophy that can occur after tooth loss.

Very friendly and caring staff. Best decision I've made concerning my teeth. Was nervous and scared at first. The whole team took time to walk me through the process. Definitely was less painful than I thought it would be. Dr. Morelli did an awesome job on my top and bottom implants. Very happy to have my smile back. I strongly recommend.

All-on-4 Candidacy

You may be a candidate for All-on-4 dental implants if you:

Have Extensive Tooth Loss

This method is used to restore an entire arch of missing teeth. Patients only missing one tooth or even a few teeth should instead consider an implant-supported crown or bridge.

Have Sufficient Jawbone

Patients with severe jawbone deterioration may still require bone grafting, as dental implants need sufficient bone material to graft to. Our Raleigh dental office offers bone grafting to help patients qualify for implant placement.

Are in Good Oral Health

If you have oral health concerns such as tooth decay or gum disease, they must be addressed before implant placement to ensure a healthy foundation. We offer periodontal therapy to help those with periodontal concerns.
