All-on-4 in Farmington, CT
What Makes All-on-4 Implants Revolutionary?
All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary solution for those who have lost most of their teeth. The All-on-4 method utilizes four strategically placed implants to support an entire arch of replacement teeth. This method is so revolutionary because it allows patients to have a complete set of teeth in just one day. In addition, the All-on-4 implants are designed to be more stable and comfortable than traditional dentures, making them a popular choice for those who want a more permanent solution for their missing teeth. The procedure is also less invasive and typically has a shorter recovery time than other implant methods.

Explaining the All-on-4 Treatment: How Does it Work?
The All-on-4 treatment revolutionizes full arch restoration by placing four dental implants to support replacement teeth. Our experienced dental team strategically places the implants in the jawbone, positioning two towards the front of the mouth and two towards the back for optimal support and stability. This approach minimizes the need for additional implant surgery or bone grafting.
Once the implants are placed, we attach a temporary set of replacement teeth to the implants to allow for normal function and aesthetics during the healing process. Once the jawbone fully integrates with the implants, we affix a permanent set of replacement teeth to provide a natural-looking and functional smile.
We prioritize each patient’s unique needs and goals at Gorgeous Smiles of Farmington. We work closely with them throughout the treatment process, utilizing the latest techniques and technologies for All-on-4 implant treatment for a successful outcome.
All-on-4 Treatment: What to Expect Before and After
Before the All-on-4 treatment, our team at Gorgeous Smiles of Farmington will thoroughly evaluate your oral health and take diagnostic images of your teeth and jawbone. This information will help us create a personalized treatment plan for you.
On the day of the procedure, you will receive a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the implant placement. Sedation options may also be available to help you relax during the procedure.
After the treatment, it is normal to experience some discomfort and swelling. Our team will provide instructions on how to care for your new teeth, including a soft food diet and proper oral hygiene techniques. We will also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and ensure your new teeth function correctly.
Once the implants have fully integrated with your jawbone, we will attach the permanent replacement teeth. You can expect your new teeth to feel and function like natural teeth; with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

How are All-on-4 Dental Implants Different from Traditional Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants differ from traditional implants in several ways. While conventional implants typically require one implant for each missing tooth, the All-on-4 method uses four implants to support an entire arch of replacement teeth. Additionally, All-on-4 implants are angled to maximize the existing bone structure, which may sometimes eliminate the need for bone grafting.
Another difference is that the All-on-4 procedure typically allows for same-day teeth replacement. With traditional implants, patients may need to wait several months for the implants to fuse with the jawbone before the replacement teeth can be attached.
At Gorgeous Smiles of Farmington, we can help you determine which implant option is best for your needs and goals. Our skilled dental team has extensive experience in traditional and All-on-4 implant procedures and is committed to providing personalized care to each patient.
