The Benefits of All-on-4® Implant Dentures

Schedule an Appointment

If you wear traditional dentures, you know that they don’t feel or act like your natural teeth. Conventional dentures rub against the gums and force you to learn a whole new way to approach food. They can limit the foods you eat and make you feel nervous about eating with friends. Patients who’ve made the switch to All-On-4® implant dentures will tell you: they are more comfortable and natural-feeling than traditional dentures.

What Makes All-on-4 Special?

Standard implant dentures are a great alternative to traditional dentures, but they require a long healing period and they aren’t possible for everyone. If you’ve been without your teeth for several years already, you may require extensive bone grafting surgeries to be able to qualify. Many patients who did not qualify for implant dentures find they can still get a better set of teeth, with All-on-4.

How does it work? All-on-4 makes use of a special tapered implant with top-to-bottom threads that integrate well with the jawbone. Using a slanted angle for the back implants takes advantage of the bone you have, so bone grafting is not required. Patients who opt for All-on-4 get a fixed set of stable implant dentures, all in one day.

Benefits of All-on-4 Dentures

All-on-4 dentures are a permanent solution to tooth loss, with a success rate of over 90 percent. If you take good care of your prosthetic teeth, they will last you for many years. This is a stark contrast to the constantly-changing fit of traditional dentures. Patients report many other benefits, including the following.

Greater Comfort

The greatest benefit of All-on-4 is that they feel more natural than dentures. They do not rub against the gums because they are attached to your jaw bones. You will be able to eat mostly as you did when you had a mouth full of healthy teeth.

No More Bone Loss

With implants firmly in place, your jawbone will not deteriorate any further. This is a huge relief to dental patients who are concerned with losing their facial structure after the loss of their natural teeth. All-on-4 ensures you will continue to look like you—and won’t experience the shrinking-jaw phenomenon that is inevitable without implants.

Easier Care

Because All-on-4 is a fixed denture, you can brush and floss the dentures to keep them clean. Flossing around your implants is a bit different than flossing natural teeth, so we will show you how to do it after your surgery. You don’t need to use an adhesive to keep them in place, and you don’t need to soak them at night. With simpler care, many patients find All-on-4 an easier solution to fit into their lives.

More Natural Biting and Chewing

Traditional dentures change how you look at eating. If the foods in front of you aren’t soft or small enough, you may dislodge your dentures trying to eat them. That’s no way to enjoy the best years of your life! Implant-based All-on-4 dentures give you back the freedom to choose the full range of foods you enjoy.

Instant Teeth

Perhaps the most tempting benefit of All-on-4 is that you get your new teeth the same day. With standard implant-based dentures, you must wait through a long osseointegration period, in which new bone grows around the implants. Due to All-on-4’s patented system, you get to wear your new teeth home on the same day as your surgery.

Better Value

All-on-4 is the most economical choice for implant dentures. This means patients find the entire process faster, more gratifying, and more affordable than other implant options. It’s such an attractive proposition, that Yuma Smiles receives many patients from out-of-state who come here for All-on-4.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"
