What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
The All-on-4 treatment concept from Nobel Biocare™ offers an innovative tooth replacement solution to patients with multiple missing teeth. As an advanced procedure, this option includes four or six special titanium implants positioned precisely within the top or bottom jaw that are then used to support a full-arch set of lifelike replacement teeth. When compared with other implant solutions, All-on-4 or All-on-6 is able to provide stable, total-arch tooth replacement often with fewer dental implants. At ACE Dental of Belton, our well-trained dentists are pleased to offer All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants as an alternative to dentures to help patients enjoy the long-term benefits of implant technology.

Is All-on-4 or All-on-6 Right for Your Smile?
If you have lost most or all of your top or bottom teeth, you may be a good candidate for All-on-4 dental implants. A number of patients find All-on-4 or All-on-6 to be a viable alternative to traditional removable tooth replacements, as implants can offer longer-lasting results. Dental implants also fuse with the jawbone, providing greater stability and biting power. This can enable you to eat a wider variety of foods and speak with increased confidence while gaining natural-looking smile results. All-on-4 implants from ACE Dental in Belton, TX can even be ideal when bone loss in the jaw has occurred, making this implant option a reality for a number of patients. Implants may not be recommended for those with certain dental or medical issues or individuals who use tobacco products.
What Is the Treatment Process?
Before getting started, we will take cone beam scans of your jaw and use these digital images to precisely plan your procedure. On the day of your implant surgery, we will numb your jaw and may administer sedation to further increase your comfort. Our team will then insert four or six special dental implants at exact areas in your arch. A temporary (yet lifelike) full-arch appliance will likely be attached to your implants during the same appointment, providing function and appearance for your smile as you implants integrate with the jawbone. When this integration process is complete, our dentists will customize and affix a permanent restoration to complete your procedure for a natural-looking, lasting result.
Recovery Following Implant Placement
It's common to experience minor swelling or tenderness in your jaw for a few days following an All-on-4 or All-on-6 procedure. During this time, over-the-counter pain medication and cool compresses can ease discomfort. Our team will provide instructions on how to care for your implants, temporary restoration, and mouth as you heal and after your final restoration is in place. Keeping up with good at-home oral care efforts along with routine dental check-ups at ACE Dental of Belton is important to maintaining your oral health and tooth replacement over time. Our team will use special implant instruments during your routine dental cleanings and will track the health of your jawbone and the gums supporting your tooth replacement.
Are Implants Covered by Insurance?
Your dental insurance may partially cover certain parts of All-on-4 dental implant procedures. Though there will likely be some out-of-pocket costs, we will advocate on your behalf to maximize your treatment coverage. ACE Dental of Belton accepts several affordable payment options for any personal expenses. We can also help you apply for medical financing and design a payment solution to fit your budget.
