How We Plan Your All-On-Four Placement

oklahoma city all-on-fourWhen you suffer from major tooth loss, we want to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function again. Which means instead of traditional removable dentures, we offer a fixed option with dental implants. Our team at our dental implant center in Stillwater, OK is looking at how we plan the placement of your All-On-Four implant dentures.

The Risks of Major Tooth Loss

When we suffer from issues like periodontitis, this could cause the loss of our natural teeth. Missing most of our teeth could lead to serious issues, such as difficulty eating, issues with clear communication, and an older appearance. But with dentures secured with dental implants, we can prevent these complications, so you avoid issues like the loss of mass and density in the jawbone, preventing that prematurely aged appearance.

Examining Your Smile

To begin, we will take a close look at your smile with advanced imaging technology. Typically, if you have lost jawbone mass and density due to tooth loss, you may not be able to receive dental implant dentures without first undergoing grafting or a sinus lift to fortify the jaw. However, with All-On-Four, we use only four specially placed posts per arch, which need less structure to stay in place. We want to make sure this is the right option for you, and to choose the best possible angles, and depths to insert the dental implant posts.

Planning Placement

Our team will plan the process in detail, and when the time comes for replacement, we will numb the area and also administer sedation to ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed. We then guide these posts to the jaw. Unlike traditional implant dentures, we don’t stop here and make you wait for the placement area to heal. We proceed with completing your smile in the same sitting!


All-On-Four provides teeth in a day, so we can insert the posts and then attach abutments to them. Our team will connect abutments to the posts in the same sitting. This could be your final one, or a temporary that we will switch for a final one at a later date. Regardless, you leave our office with a full smile, one designed to fit comfortably and look natural, so you feel more confident in your smile.
