Dr. Carroll can give you implant-supported full-arch replacement teeth that are stably fixed-in, provide near full chewing power, look natural and won’t slip or irritate your gums. The procedure is known as “All-on-4®,” as only four implants are needed to support an entire arch of fixed-in new teeth.
All-on-4 is a highly advanced procedure which allows patients with an even severe bone loss in their jaw to receive fixed-in new teeth without the need for bone grafting. It also designed so you can have any necessary extractions done and collect your implants and new replacement teeth all on the same day!
The All-on-4 treatment protocol was developed in the 1990s by Nobel Biocare, a world leader in innovative dental implant solutions, in conjunction with Portuguese dentist Dr. Paolo Malo. Nobel and Dr. Malo dedicated to finding a system that could adequately provide implant-supported, full-arch replacement teeth to patients who had lost a lot of bone in their jaw and to be able to do so without having to rely on bone grafting.
They developed a specially tapered implant that had top-to-bottom threads that would optimally integrate with the jawbone. They then found that placing the rear implants at a slanted angle would take the best advantage of the available bone in the jaw and eliminate the need for bone grafting in most patients.
Dr. Carroll can help you restore your smile to full health and visual aesthetics with the All-on-4 procedure.
All-on-4 has many advantages which make it a superior option for fixed-in new teeth:
All-on-4 is not just for people who have broken teeth that need to be extracted and replaced. People who have already lost all their teeth and are already wearing dentures can benefit equally from the procedure.
In traditional implant treatment, patients who need bone grafting have to wait three months without functional teeth for the bone to regrow. The implants are placed, and they have to wait several more months for the implants to heal before they can have good new teeth. It makes the tooth replacement procedure extraordinarily long and very expensive.
Conventional methods are also a lot more taxing on the patient. They require several sessions, which means more time in the surgical chair and multiple recovery periods.
We use the latest in dental imaging technology for accurate diagnosis and detailed treatment planning. With our All-on-4 procedure, the patient has only one surgery visit which includes the placement of all implants to provide new, functional teeth.
We have intravenous conscious (IV) sedation and general anesthesia available on all All-on-4® dental implant cases. Our dental implant procedures start with a comprehensive dental consultation. At the discussion, you will be examined by Dr. Sam Carroll who has the experience of performing dental implant surgery (implant placement) for over a decade. He is looking forward to meeting with you.
Dr. Carroll is passionate and generous about helping patients to get their smile back. Along with his extensive training in oral implantology, Dr. Carroll possesses a unique eye for smile design assisting patients in looking younger.
When you’re on this path, you’ll be working with the same team of dental implant professionals throughout the entire process. First, you’ll receive a 3D CAT scan and consultation with the team to determine the best course of treatment.
You’ll also get one fixed price that covers the entire procedure. When you return to our dental office, the surgery will be done in one day—and you’ll walk away with fully functioning teeth. At your follow-up appointment, you’ll again meet with the same team.

We may recommend for you to send over a CT scan and a panoramic radiograph for Dr. Carroll to review it before your arrival.
