All-On-4 – Arlington Heights, IL
Enjoy the Benefits of Dental Implants
Have you lost all your upper or lower teeth? You’re not alone. At least 35 million Americans don’t have any teeth. Traditionally, a full denture is used to replicate the portions of the teeth visible above your gum line. Although it’s effective, it will never quite feel natural. As an alternative, you can stabilize your denture with dental implants in Arlington Heights. We can secure your denture using just 4 implant posts to enjoy a nearly perfect replica of your real teeth.
How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
A traditional denture rests on top of your gum tissue and is held in place using suction or an adhesive. Dentures have undergone several improvements over the years, but they will always have their limitations. To resolve the common complaints of the traditional method, dental implants can be used to support the denture. Typically, 8 to 10 posts are needed, which also requires a lengthy treatment plan.
You can benefit from an implant-supported denture using a streamlined process with All-On-4. Only 4 implant posts are needed to support the denture. They are placed into the thickest part of the jaw to eliminate the need for bone grafting. After just 1 day, you can have a complete, beautiful smile.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?
If a traditional denture didn’t give you the results you wanted, you might be a candidate for All-On-4. Even if you’ve lost density in your jawbone, you can still benefit from the treatment. Generally, if you have good oral and general health, you can get dental implants. We’ll perform a thorough consultation to ensure All-On-4 is the right option for you.
What are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?

- Over a 95% success rate.
- Looks natural.

- Long-term, cost-effective solution.
All-On-4 VS Traditional Dental Implants
When replacing missing teeth with a traditional implant-retained denture, it requires a multi-step treatment process that can take several months to complete. Not to mention, you might need bone grafting before your placement surgery, which can add several weeks to your plan. All-On-4 simplifies the process because everything is done in one day without compromising the results.
You won’t need bone grafting because the posts are strategically placed into the thickest part of your jaw. After the posts are in place, special fixtures are attached to each one to connect a temporary denture. You won’t need to go without any teeth while you heal, so you’ll walk out of the office with a beautiful smile.
