THINKING ABOUT All-on-4?
No other full-arch restoration provides the benefits you get with All-on-4®. They’re attractive, easy to care for, and they promote good health. Unlike single tooth replacement implants, All-on-4® never requires bone grafting. That means that almost everyone who wants to restore an arch is eligible for All-on-4® treatment.
Why You Don’t Need Bone Grafting with All-on-4
Traditional dental implants are designed to restore a single tooth. The titanium implant fixture that supports a single-tooth dental implant takes the place of the patient’s natural tooth root. This requires a substantial amount of bone mass to be present where the implant is affixed.
When there’s not enough bone mass to support a single-tooth dental implant, dentists frequently reinforce the surgical site through a process called bone grafting. This is a procedure where a small piece of bone matter is attached to the jaw to form a stable platform for the dental implant.
However, the need for bone grafting is not necessary with All-on-4® treatment. We use a dynamic strategy that consists of inserting the implants directly into the jawbone at strategic angles. That’s how we can secure a whole-arch prosthetic using just four dental implants.
IS ALL-ON-4 THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOU?
All-on-4® is a potential treatment for anyone who’s interested in restoring one or both arches. When you meet with Dr. Stockdale, he’ll give you a free examination, including a cone beam scan. Then he’ll explain your options and recommend the best course of treatment for you.
Patients who can benefit from All-on-4 include:
- Patients who wear full dentures
- Patients who are missing all their teeth in one or both arches
- Patients who have lost most or all of their teeth due to an accident, decay, or gum disease
- Patients with missing teeth whose remaining dentition, gums, or jawbone is severely damaged

It’s time to start living without restrictions. Eat what you want, go where you want, and be who you want to be. All-on-4® doesn’t just restore your smile, it helps you reclaim the life you used to know.
