How All-on-4 Works
Step 1: Locate and Place Implants
We examine your mouth to find the location with the best support for the implant. Then we surgically place the implantWe begin All-on-4 treatment by strategically placing four dental implants in strategic locations in your jaws where the implants will receive maximum support.
Step 2: Attach Abutments to Implants
After the implants are placed, we attach abutments, which are devices that attach the All-on-4 bridge to the implants.
Step 3: Attach All-on-4 Bridge to Abutments
Finally, we attach the All-on-4 bridge to the abutments. The All-on-4 bridge is designed to match the shape of your mouth to fit comfortably and look natural.
