All-on-4 Dental Implants

You may be wondering what All On Four Los Angeles means.

All on Four Los Angeles is placing a partial or full denture on four implants instead of placing implants on every tooth that needs to be replaced.

All on Four saves you time and money because you don’t need bone grafting, which may be necessary for the traditional implant. Your healing time means that you can return to work without discomfort. Bone grafting is a way of building up the jaw making it a strong enough to receive an implant.

Where does the donor’s bone come from?

You can be your own donor by having it harvested from your hip or other areas of your body. This procedure is called Autograft bone donor. It’s the best graft material because it contains your own body cells and carries no foreign disease.

So what’s the bad news? Pain in your donor site and that second area means two surgical procedures. Healing takes several weeks and discomfort is on both sites. How many grafts do you need? As many as it takes to restore your complete arch. It takes weeks between implants to be completely healed and ready for implants.

Make an appointment

There’s another way of getting a donor graft and it’s called Allograft bone. There’s a big advantage in getting donor bone because it doesn’t require the second surgical site so pain in two areas is cut by half.

How effective is the donor’s bone?

There’s a long history that has proven donor’s bone is a really good source to receive graft materials. Best of all, the donor’s bone is readily available for use so making an appointment for grafts isn’t going to take weeks.

Not having a bone graft is probably the best news of all. Not using bone grafting means that you can have your teeth rehabilitation done in one day. You won’t have to wait for the healing of the jaw bone before moving to the next stage. Yes, there are several stages to any implant procedure.

If you think that you are a candidate for the All on Four Los Angeles procedure, mention your concerns and questions during your appointment and we will be glad to explain and show you the difference between the traditional partial or full denture and the All on Four.

Don’t forget, even though implants and dentures don’t decay, your oral hygiene and physical health improve your ability to maintain your dental implants for a lifetime.
