About All-on-4 Dental Implants
The All-on-4 treatment concept from Nobel Biocare™ offers a unique way to replace a full arch of missing teeth with a limited number of implants. The groundbreaking process positions a set of four or six specially designed dental implants at certain angles in the top or bottom jaw. These implants can then be used to support a natural-looking restoration that replaces an entire arch of teeth. All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants from ACE Dental of Harker Heights can enhance oral function and may be an attractive alternative to other implant solutions or traditional tooth replacement options.

Who Is a Candidate for All-on-4 or All-on-6?
Patients who have lost all or most of their teeth in the top and/or bottom arches, who need to have teeth removed, may be good candidates for All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants. This implant dentistry solution may also be desired by those who prefer a long-term tooth replacement solution over traditional removable appliances. Dental implants bond with the underlying jawbone, which helps them feel more secure, offers a more a natural-looking smile, and allows patients to enjoy their favorite foods. In many cases, All-on-4 implants may be ideal, even if bone loss in the jaw has occurred. A dental implant option may not be recommended for individuals who use tobacco products or who have certain health issues.
The Treatment Process
Before beginning the All-on-4 or All-on-6 treatment process, our Harker Heights, TX team will take cone beam scans and x-rays of your jaw. Our dentists can then curate your custom treatment plan and talk with you about the process, including sedation dentistry services. On the day your procedure, your mouth will be numbed and a series of four or six implants will be placed at precise positions in your jawbone. A full-arch restoration will then be secured to your implants (likely the very same day). You will wear this set of natural-looking replacement teeth over the next several months as your implants fuse with your jaw. Once this occurs, we will create and attach a new restoration that can help to bring lasting function and confidence to your smile.
Recovery Following All-on-4 or All-on-6
Following the placement of your All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants, you may notice minor swelling or tenderness in your mouth. Nonprescription pain relievers and cold packs to the jaw can help enhance your comfort as you recover. Tips on caring for your gums, implants, and replacement teeth will be provided to you by our team. Keeping up with good oral hygiene each day and attending dental checkups at ACE Dental of Harker Heights can help you maintain your tooth replacements and oral health over time. When you visit us for routine care, we will use special instruments to clean your implants and evaluate the gum and bone tissues supporting your tooth replacements.
