All-on-4 Dental Implants
Are you missing a full arch of teeth but lack bone to support traditional implant-supported dentures? Are you tired of loose dentures?
If you have severe bone loss or just can’t afford multiple implants, All-on-4® dental implants may be the faster, more affordable answer.
Gerald Grossman, DDS, in Westbury, NY, has years of experience using this proven method to restore patients' smiles and confidence.
How All-on-4 Implants Are Positioned
All-on-4 Versus Traditional Dental Implants
Traditional implants are placed vertically and integrate with the surrounding bone tissue over time. With All-on-4, two implants are placed vertically at the front of the mouth, and two implants are placed at an angle at the back of the mouth.
All-on-4 implants fuse to the surrounding bone tissue, but due to the strategic placement of the posterior implants, stability is achieved much quicker. Using the All-on-4 method, the fixed denture can often be attached on the same day.
The unique design, smaller size, and limited number of implants used in this treatment process enables people with poor bone density to avoid undergoing a bone graft.
All-on-4 dental implants are less expensive than traditional implants because only four implant posts are placed. Fewer implants typically lowers the cost of dental treatment, saving you money. In addition, this approach can help patients avoid the need for preparatory procedures like a bone graft.

Anyone who is seeking dental implant treatment must be free from active tooth decay o periodontal disease. While implants won't decay, they will fail if surrounding tissues become compromised. Therefore, any necessary restorative treatments must be completed first.
Other candidacy factors:
- Are you missing most or all of the teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both?
