What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants from Nobel Biocare® provide a revolutionary way to secure a full-arch restoration for tooth replacement while increasing biting stability and oral function. This process works by placing dental implant screws in four different areas in the upper or lower jaw, which are then used to support a full-arch set of teeth or denture-like appliance. Our group of talented dentists may suggest All-on-4 implants as an alternative to removable dentures for patients who are looking for a long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. Many Wyomissing, PA patients have reaped the advantages of the groundbreaking All-on-4 treatment, enjoying high-quality outcomes. If you are interested in discovering more about All-on-4 dental implants and custom-made tooth replacements, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics.

"At a time when being a dentist is challenging to say the least, Grove Dental was kind enough to treat me when I needed a root canal. They were extremely professional and also very caring. Defining what a “dental emergency” is during the Covid-19 outbreak is a very difficult task and one not to be taken lightly. Grove Dental took every possible precaution to keep me safe during Covid-19 when I needed dental work and I am very grateful to them for that. Thank you Dr. Jason!"- S.L. / Google / May 02, 2020

Best Candidates for All-on-4 Implants
All-on-4 implants can be used to replace the upper and/or lower arches of teeth. You may be a good candidate for the All-on-4 treatment concept if you prefer the advantages of implant-supported dentures compared to removable dentures, such as few or no diet restrictions, no need for adhesives, and no special cleaning processes. In most implant cases, you will need to have good bone density and gum health to be an ideal candidate since implants rely upon your bone and gums to maintain their position. But in some instances, All-on-4 implants may be placed, even if bone loss in the jaw has occurred. Our dentists can help you determine whether this process is ideal for you and review your treatment choices during your consultation.
The All-on-4 Implant Process
The first step in getting All-on-4 dental implants is to take digital x-rays of your mouth. We will also develop your personal treatment plan and discuss your options for sedation dentistry during your tooth replacement procedure. To begin, the implants will be surgically placed in your dental arch. A temporary tooth replacement appliance will be attached to these implants to help maintain your function and appearance as the implant screws fuse with your jawbone. After several months, you will come back in to have the temporary removed and a custom full-arch appliance connected to your implants. Your tooth replacement will be adjusted as needed to ensure a comfortable fit.
Recovery Following Your Treatment
After your procedure, you might feel some discomfort in your mouth. Our team will give you tips on how to manage any symptoms along with how to clean your implants and full-arch appliance. We will have you come in for regular follow-ups throughout the recovery period so we can check your progress and ensure that your implants are healing into your bone and gums as they should be. You should continue to go to Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics for routine exams and dental cleanings to maintain your tooth replacement and so we can monitor the health of your implants, gums, and jawbone.
Insurance Coverage for All-on-4 Implants
Certain insurance companies may offer limited coverage for All-on-4 dental implants and custom restorations. It is very likely that there will be some out-of-pocket expenses; however, our team will confirm your out-of-pocket cost with your insurance company and do our best to optimize your coverage. If you do not have insurance, Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics accepts numerous payment options, including low-interest medical financing. Our goal is to help you have a healthy mouth so we are happy to work with you to make your All-on-4 treatment fit into your budget.
