All-on-4 Dentistry – Have Teeth in One Day!
All-on-4 implant procedure, performed at Park 56 Dental, is the result of significant advancements in dental technology and technique. It allows us to restore an entire arch of missing or damaged teeth in a single appointment. Dr. Rabinowitz performs all on 4 procedures routinely for our NYC patients.
What are All-on-4 Implants
This technique was developed by Dr. Malo and Nobel Biocare to immediately replace a full arch of teeth without needing bone grafting. It is an alternative to removable dentures. As the name suggests, only four implant posts are needed to support the entire set of fixed teeth. For the sake of comparison, other more conventional methods typically take six to ten implants for fixed implant bridges. Not only is placing fewer implants more cost effective, it also doesn’t require bone grafting.
How All-on-4 Implants Work
This procedure uses what is called “tilted implants.” Four posts are placed strategically at a 45-degree angle. There are two reasons for this. First, it increases strength and stability. Secondly, it avoids damaging the sinus cavity around the upper jaw as well as the nerve canal in the lower jaw. Because the implants are tilted, they are able to anchor better into the jawbone, improving support. We also use longer dental implants so that the need for bone grafting is reduced. For the sake of clarification, bone grafting is when the jawbone is supplemented to provide a better base for implants.
Our skilled doctors work with the top labs in the country with 3-D digitally guided plans to expertly post placement. Once those posts have been placed, we create a custom fixed bridge to support prosthetic teeth.
All-on-4 Success rate
All-on-4 has been clinically proven to have a very high success rate when using NobelBiocare implants. Clinical studies published by National Institute of Health have shown 98% percent overall implant success after 3 years for all-on-4 procedure. None of the 36 patients wearing 44 arch prosthesis had a prosthesis failure after 3 years. Journal of Oral Implantology reported even better results with 99.6% implant success rates when using NobelActive implants made by Nobel Biocare (our practice uses exclusively Nobel Biocare implants). Keep in mind that this often quoted research was done utilizing Nobel Biocare implants. The efficacy and success rate of other implant brands is unknown for this procedure.

What’s the difference between “Teeth-in-a-day” and “All-on-4”
All-on-4 procedures is one of several options of “immediate load” (“teeth in a day”) procedure when 4 implants are placed per arch. Depending on your dental needs, we may place more than 4 implants per arch but you will still walk out with new functioning teeth right after your procedure.
How much does All-on-4 cost?
In general, it is difficult to determine the exact price without seeing the patient and taking 3D digital scan. There are some parameters which apply to any case. All-on-4 is more cost effective than a more “old school” procedure of placing a larger number of implants and having a patient wear a denture until the implants heal. If you do both upper and lower arches (the full mouth) at the same time, the cost may be lower per arch because you only need to pay anesthesiologist once. This price includes surgery, anesthesiologist fees, implants, dental lab work.
