All-on-FourAn All-on-Four procedure is an alternative option for a tooth replacement in El Segundo that can give you a full set of healthy and beautiful teeth in a short period of time. The procedure is the perfect blend of the non-invasive and convenience that dentures can bring with the durable nature and permanence of dental implants.  If you are missing teeth, we recommend that you visit our dental office to discuss what your options are and whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.

The Benefits of the All-on-Four Procedure


If you need to replace your teeth in El Segundo but are crunched for time, traditional dental implants are not the best solution for you.  With implants, a post needs to be inserted under the gums and secured to the jawbone for every tooth that is being replaced.  This is a significant procedure that can take a lot of time, depending on how many teeth are being replaced.  Once the titanium posts have been secured to the jawbone, the process of osseointegration needs to take place.  This is where the bone and metal fuse together so that a new root system is created.  This is what makes traditional dental implants so durable. The challenge is that with traditional implants the surgery and be extensive with a new post needing to be placed where every missing tooth was.  Depending on how many you are getting, this surgery may need to be completed over several sessions.  With an All-on-Four procedure, your entire set of new teeth can be placed in one visit.   


The All-on-Four procedure will give you a natural looking set of replacement teeth that is truly beautiful.  They look like normal teeth so no one will be able to tell that they are not the set of teeth that you were born with.  To create them, we will make an impression of your mouth, take measurements, and go over a shade card with you so that you can determine how white you want your teeth to be.


 If you are looking for teeth that will remain in place, regardless of the type of food that you are eating or the activity you are engaged in – the All-on-Four procedure is exactly what you need. This is the ideal solution because your replacement teeth are secured in your mouth by attaching to the metal posts.  This is far superior to traditional dentures that have to come out at night and are likely to slip out of place from time to time.  That risk is completely eliminated with this procedure.

Given how quickly this procedure can be performed and the durability that it provides you, the All-on-Four solution is truly the best hybrid between dentures and dental implants.  In essence, it gives you the best of both worlds while ensuring that your smile is intact and that you can enjoy life without thinking or worrying about your teeth.  You clean them like you would natural teeth so there are no additional maintenance requirements either.  To learn more about this modern solution in El Segundo, call and schedule a consultation.
