All-On-4® Dental Implants

Everyone deserves to have a smile they are proud to flash anywhere they go. One of the main reasons that people are hesitant to smile is because of their teeth. Patients who have experienced tooth loss in the past, and are holding back their smile, as a result, should consider the innovative All-on-4 dental implant procedure. This procedure is similar to getting an individual dental implant, but can actually replace the entire upper or lower arch with just four implants. The end result is having a natural smile with a full mouth of natural-looking teeth anyone can be proud of.
Many patients don’t like dealing with dentures. However, patients with missing teeth can’t just ignore it. When patients visit our practice, we will go over the All-on-4 procedure with them in depth and explain the science behind the results, as well as what the patient can expect from the very beginning. Not only does the procedure provide aesthetic benefits, but there are many long-term health benefits associated with it as well.

How the All-on-4 Process Works

Our doctors will insert four dental implants strategically and precisely into the top or bottom of the jaw, or even both at the same time if patients need both arches replaced. What makes the All-on-4 process a permanent solution is the use of titanium implants that fuse with the existing bone in the jaw. Each implant will continue to fuse to the bone over time to give a solid foundation for the new arch of teeth. Once the implants have fused and set permanently, then patients can get their permanent teeth inserted. A dental implant bridge will be installed to create a brand new look and a full mouth of great looking teeth.

Comparing All-on-4 to Traditional Dental Implants

Patients who are familiar with traditional dental implants may not understand the advantages of the All-on-4 procedure. One of the main differences between the two has to do with the number of implants used. With the All-on-4 approach, only four implants are needed per arch. With traditional dental implants, up to eight implants may be needed per arch. Traditional dental implants also typically require bone grafting in order to ensure the procedure is effective, but due to the technology and the innovative technique with the All-on-4 procedure, no bone grafting is required.

Ideal Candidates for All-on-4

The ideal candidate for the All-on-4 procedure will have multiple missing teeth or could be missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch. If this is the case, the patient will likely already be using dentures, and are simply tired of dealing with them. The other main criteria is for the patient to be in good health. Age is not necessarily a determining factor in this regard. Our doctors will do a complete evaluation of every patient prior to doing any work, just to ensure the procedure will be successful.

Caring for the New Teeth

Once patients get their new teeth, it’s only natural to want to show them off to the world. When patients look in the mirror, they are ecstatic to see a mouth full of healthy and shiny teeth that only took one day to achieve. However, these new teeth still need to be cared for like real teeth for them to last a lifetime. In most cases, routine dental hygiene practices are sufficient. Brushing and flossing are always recommended, but our dentists will also put together a dental hygiene plan for patients to follow after the All-on-4 procedure is completed.

Enjoy Natural Looking Teeth for Years to Come

Since the All-on-4 procedure is a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth, patients can enjoy their natural looking teeth for a lifetime as long as they are cared for properly. With the implants being placed permanently in the jaw, the bone fusion process will prevent bone loss in the future. Not only will this help keep a patient’s new teeth strong and healthy, but it will also maintain their youthful facial features. The benefits of the All-on-4 procedure go well beyond simply replacing missing teeth. It can truly transform a patient’s life by improving their confidence and self-esteem.
At Fort Worth Oral Surgery, we want every patient who walks through our door to leave feeling great about their oral health. We enjoy performing the All-on-4 procedure because it essentially transforms a patient’s life in a matter of a few hours. No one should have to go through life feeling self-conscious about their teeth, and our doctors are here to ensure it doesn’t happen.

    I have have one tooth at a time pulled.A good thing I wear a mask when in public. Not working now so I can have teeth pulled over period of time. I have been tramatized and spent fortune on root canals, caps etc over many years. I am now 72 and have receding gums, caps falling off etc. I think God for Dr. Scheidleman. He is brilliant and he CARES about his patients.He is patient and gentle. I feel confident and I am not scared. Five more to pull then implants. Thank you Dr. Scheidleman and God Bless. His office team also 😃👍 great.

    I have the worst fear of doing anything with my teeth. Dr. k and his staff really knew how to make me feel comfortable and assured me that I was in the right hands. I had the best experience here and it definitely changed the way I dental treatment in the future. Thank you to the staff that were professional, punctual and so very kind. And a big thank you to Dr. K for taking such great care of me!! Highly recommend!!

    I always have a hard time with dentists. I hate the tools and most of the time, I feel as if the staff is constantly judging me but the staff here is amazing! I came in today(they fit me in within 2 days) for wisdom tooth removal after an infection. My jaw had been shifted, couldn’t eat, constantly in pain but they put me to sleep, pulled the two teeth, and walked me out to my car. All done within 15 minutes. I’m in no pain at all and even got a checkup text from Dr. Scheideman. I still have two more wisdom teeth to be pulled so I will DEFINITELY be using them again!

    Dr. Scheideman and his staff were fantastic! I had a wisdom tooth infection and horrible pain and my dentist referred me to FWOS. They were able to fit me in for a consult within 2 hours of my dentist calling, which was amazing. Yesterday I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted. The nurse/tech (I think her name was Jennifer) was super friendly and confirmed all my information and put me at ease to prep me for surgery. Dr. Scheideman checked on me before we started and was very comforting. He even numbed the spot on my arm where the IV was placed so I literally felt no pain for the entire procedure. I woke up a little dizzy and numb but pain free. I was sent home with thorough instructions, pain medication, and aftercare supplies. Dr. Scheideman even texted me to check in on me the next day. I am shocked how little pain and swelling I've had, and I feel surprisingly good! Obviously I hope to never have oral surgery again but if I did I would run to FWOS. 10 of 10. Would recommend!

    No nonsense, get er done dentist office made ya feel like everything will be OK, and they were right. Good job to all of you thank you. I will use yall for all my dentist stuff.

    Would love to rate much much higher than 5 stars! From the second I was welcomed, I felt like family. Dr.Runyon and his staff, were more than accommodating to my needs. Got me in immediately (less than 24 hours) for wisdom teeth extraction. Dr. Runyon even called me the night of, during his personal time to check up on me. I had no swelling- and even went to work the next day! Thank you all for all of your hard work. It doesn’t go unnoticed. ♥️

    Initial interactions were professional and thorough, I had two extractions for implants. My bone structure was good so no need for a bone graft. Dr. ScheidimenExplained the process in simplistic terms. The whole process took about 30-40 minutes. Shawna, my nurse patiently answered all of my questions and concerns. This was a very positive procedure. I am grateful to the team.
