The All-on-4® Fixed Denture System


All-on-4® dentures at Delta Family Dentistry in Oakley, CA, are a way for patients to get dentures placed using four permanent posts instead of 6 or 8 posts. People who opt for All-on-4 dentures can often leave with their fixed dentures in place on the same day. As a result, the beautiful smile they missed can be restored in a single dental visit.

What Makes All-on-4 Different?

All-on-4 dental implants are a type of denture that the dentist mounts permanently using four posts. Using this method, they can complete the patient’s upper or lower arch with a fixed denture that feels natural. Once the four posts are in place, the denture is mounted directly to the four posts. This creates a permanent denture that can stand the test of time. Many reasons exist for patients to choose the All-on-4 system. Most patients who come to Delta Family Dentistry in Oakley, CA, are looking to replace old implants or excessively worn dentures with a more permanent solution. Other great candidates for the All-on-4 system are patients who would otherwise need bone grafting procedures but are looking for a more budget-friendly way to get a permanent solution. All in four dentures fit the bill in more ways than one.

Post-Visit Care and Recovery

It’s essential to continue your general hygiene regimen after your visit. After placing the posts and mounting the fixed denture, your dentist will recommend gentle washing on the first night. Make sure you understand their instructions entirely and remember to stay consistent with the instructions you are given. Once the posts are firmly in place and completely healed, you can treat the fixed denture system like your regular teeth. Continuous hygiene, frequent brushing, flossing, and a recommended mouthwash will help your All-on-4 dentures last for many years. Be sure to maintain your dental cleaning schedule and follow other treatment recommendations your dentist gives you.
