All-On-4 – Canton, MI
Secure Your Denture with Dental Implants
Despite the latest innovations in dentistry, 35 million Americans have lost all their natural teeth in one or both arches. Traditionally, a full denture is used to treat complete tooth loss. While several improvements have enhanced their look and fit, they will always have their limitations. Implant-retained dentures stabilize the arch to give you the next best thing to your natural smile. Unfortunately, if you’ve experienced bone loss, you might have been told you’re not a candidate for dental implants. You’re not out of options. All-On-4 in Canton allows you to enjoy the benefits of dental implants without needing to undergo an additional procedure. Dr. Robison can secure your denture using 4 implant posts to recreate your natural smile.
How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?
A traditional full denture is held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Over the years, their fit has been improved to allow them to closely mimic your real teeth, but there will always be some degree of slipping and irritation. Not to mention, they only last for a few years before needing to be replaced.
As an alternative, an average of 8 dental implants posts are inserted into the jawbone to anchor the denture in place. While this is effective, it requires you to have adequate bone density in your jaw to support the posts. As a result, some patients aren’t a candidate for dental implants because they’ve experienced bone loss.
All-On-4 differs because only 4 posts are used. They are placed into the thickest parts of the jaw, eliminating the need for bone grafting without compromising their success.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4 Implants?
If you’ve lost all your natural teeth in one or both arches and a traditional denture didn’t give you the results you wanted, you might be a candidate for All-On-4. Your dentist in Canton, Dr. Robison will perform an extensive examination and review a CT scan to assess your oral health. He will also discuss your medical and lifestyle history to ensure All-On-4 is the right option for you.
What are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?
Although fewer implant posts are used to support the denture, you’ll still enjoy the same benefits, including:
- Over a 95% success rate to last for several decades.
- Looks natural to smile confidently.

All-On-4 VS Traditional Dental Implants
Traditional dental implants in Canton require you to undergo a multi-phased treatment that can take several months to complete. All-On-4 simplifies the process because the implant posts and restoration can often be placed the same day, so you won’t need to go without any teeth while you heal.
