All-on-4 Dental Implants

Dental implants have helped millions reclaim health and confidence, but not everyone is a candidate for traditional implants.

All-on-4® implants placed at our Knoxville, TN, practice make the benefits of implants accessible to a greater number of patients in need.

What makes All-on-4 different?

All-on-4 restoration

Complete Your Smile in a Single Visit

Skip the Bone Grafting

While jawbone atrophy may disqualify you from traditional dental implants, the All-on-4 technique can often be performed without the need for a bone graft. This can allow you to receive a more secure restoration faster.

Fewer Implant Posts

With All-on-4 dental implants, only 4 posts are needed to secure your denture. This is because the posts are strategically placed with two positioned vertically and the other two at 45-degree angles to maximize surface contact with bone tissue.

An Instantly Restored Smile

Many patients are concerned about going without teeth between dental implant surgery and final restoration placement. With All-on-4, you will receive a high-quality temporary restoration that fits comfortably on the same day as surgery.

A New Smile for Patients Who Have:

Removable Dentures

Eating, speaking, and smiling all become more complicated without teeth. Dentures supported by dental implants stay in place, eliminating the embarrassment and discomfort of unstable traditional dentures. In addition, implants are uniquely capable of mimicking the actions of natural tooth roots, protecting your jaw against atrophy.

Full Arch of Missing Teeth

Whether you are missing all of the teeth in your upper jaw or lower jaw, All-on-4 can help your denture feel more secure and look more natural. Our surgeons work closely with a lab to create dentures that match the color and shape of your remaining teeth.

Complete Tooth Loss

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, over 36 million Americans are living without any teeth. If you are a completely edentulous patient, implant-supported upper and lower dentures can look, feel, and function just like natural teeth, dramatically enhancing your quality of life.

More Information About All-on-4

For patients missing a full arch of teeth, the All-on-4® dental implants method supports a denture using only four implants instead of six or eight. This technique saves time and money and can eliminate the need for bone grafting. At Knoxville Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, P.C., in Knoxville, TN, our doctors can provide All-on-4 to qualifying patients who need to replace all of their teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Drs. Turner P. Emery and Michael D. Wooten can strategically place implant posts to create a stable base for your dentures. In many cases, All-on-4 implants can support a denture immediately after they are placed.

Why Choose All-on-4?

For qualifying patients, All-on-4 is:

  • Cost-effective
  • Graftless
  • Efficient
  • Stable

The posterior implants are angled to achieve maximum surface contact with the jaw. This gives the implants the strength to provide superior support even if your jaw has experienced some degree of atrophy. Your doctor can also place a temporary restoration immediately after your implant surgery, allowing you to enjoy immediate function and an improved quality of life. 

The Placement Process

On the day of your appointment, Dr. Emery or Dr. Wooten,  will perform your All-on-4 procedure in our private surgical center. They will create small incisions into your gum tissue while you are under sedation and insert the four posts into your jaw bone. The front two posts are placed vertically, while the back posts are placed at a 45-degree angle. We can determine the ideal locations for your implants in advance by using scans and x-rays of your jaw. 

The All-on-4 technique saves time and money, and can eliminate the need for bone grafting. 

At the end of your appointment, you can leave our office with a full set of functional, natural-looking teeth. You can wear your temporary restoration for the next three to six months. During the healing period, the implants will fuse with the surrounding tissue in a process called osseointegration. Once your jaw fully heals, you will return to your dentist’s office for placement of your final restoration. 

Financing Your Treatment

Typically, dental implant procedures are not covered by insurance. However, we accept financing through CareCredit® to help ensure that you are able to afford this treatment. Our friendly staff will be glad to explain this option so you can choose the most compatible financing plan.
