All-on-4® treatment concept

Dental Implant Options

The All-on-4® treatment concept procedure is a process that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. The vast majority of people who wear or who have worn dentures will attest to the problems that come with them. Dentures are often painful, inconvenient and unstable. They can make chewing foods extremely difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed.  There is also nothing more humiliating than having a denture unseat and fall out of your mouth when eating at a restaurant with friends! the sad reality is that as time passes, the jaw bone dissolves away due to the lack of teeth and the pressure that the denture places onto the jaw bone; this will eventually lead to the denture no longer fitting and may progress to the point that a  denture will not stay in place no matter how much adhesive is used.

For more information about the All-on-4® treatment concept or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Spanganberg, Dr. Petersen and Dr. Shoemaker, call our Gilbert office at ☎ Gilbert Office Phone Number 480-279-3113 or our Yuma office at ☎ Gilbert Office Phone Number 480-279-3113.

While All-on-4® treatment concept can be completed for patients that are already wearing dentures and are unhappy with their fit, many patients who opt for an All-on-4® treatment concept are patients who still  have all or some of their teeth and having been fighting in desperation to avoid having to wear a denture. These people are termed “terminally dentate”, meaning it’s not a question of whether they’re going to lose their teeth, it’s a matter of when. This tooth loss can be the result of trauma, decay, medication, gum disease and bone loss, eating disorders or a number of other issues. Regardless of the cause, the prospect of losing their remaining teeth can be devastating to a patient!

All-on-4® treatment concept replaces your missing teeth within the upper or lower jaw with a full set of teeth supported by only four dental implants. Compared to outdated concepts that required 6-8 implants, with less implants needed, the overall treatment time and cost is reduced. With over 15 years of use of this specific technique, All-on-4® is well documented and has a success rate that is comparable to, or higher than, all other treatment options for a fixed, implant supported, implant retained prosthesis. The Bar Attachment Denture solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, eliminating additional bone loss and reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.

Typically, a temporary set of teeth is placed on the same day of surgery. Patients are routinely surprised by how little discomfort occurs after the procedure. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist, working with an experienced dental lab, will fabricate and place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, your smile restored, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.

All-on-4® treatment concept offers you many advantages.

  • A cost effective solution. Your new replacement teeth require only 4 implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
  • Reduced need for bone grafting. The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, typically making bone grafting unnecessary.
  • Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
  • Scientifically proven and documented. All-on-4® treatment concept is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies over a decade with favorable results.

Dr Spanganberg has changed my whole life. When I meet him he explained what was really wrong with my teeth and said he thought that it was even going to help my diabetic condition. Within two weeks my numbers went down 225 points and I use only a quarter of the medicine. That amount of a drop is lifesaving. His staff is the best group I have ever met. They are so professional and so so kind. Sonoma could do nothing to make the organization any better. It is already the best!!!

I have always had problems with my teeth and was embarrassed to smile. No matter what I did to try and save my teeth, there always seemed to be another problem. I had researched the All on 4 and felt like this would be the answer to my problems. Dr. Spanganberg came highly recommended and it was obvious the first time that I met with him that he understood my concerns and would be able to help me get a new smile. I have been so happy with the results, I have already recommended friends to come see him.
