All-On-4 is a type of implant-supported bridge that can restore a patient’s entire smile permanently with as few as four dental implants. This revolutionary treatment involves the placement of a minimal amount of dental implants necessary to support a permanent, fixed porcelain dental bridge that replaces a full arch of missing teeth.
The procedure itself takes only a single appointment, but multiple consultations may be required during the treatment planning process. Dr. Griffin will take an impression of your mouth and images of your jaw in order to plan your All-On-4 treatment with precision and accuracy.
That's the goal! All-On-4 uses a special type of placement method that allows the doctor to place implants at an angle in order to provide strong support for your full arch dental bridge. The objective is to place as few implants as necessary to properly support your restoration. Depending on your case, you may require more than four dental implants. But Dr. Griffin and the team will do whatever is necessary to ensure you end up with a functional, beautiful result.
