What is All-on-4®?
All-on-4® is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that allows us to give you a full mouth of fixed, non-removable, natural-looking replacement teeth.
The All-on-4® technique uses only four dental implants that are permanently fixed into your jawbone and support a full upper or lower arch.
All-on-4® gives you a complete set of teeth after one surgery, which can typically be performed in our office during one appointment under local anesthesia. For patients who have lost teeth or who have compromised teeth that need to be pulled, this is an amazing opportunity to have their dental work completed quickly, without undergoing multiple procedures or waiting the undesirable lengths of time that can be required between removing diseased teeth and receiving dentures. All-on-4® dental implants give patients the kind of teeth that look real and act like their original teeth (none of the shifting that is often experienced with removable dentures!).
Who Should Get All-on-4®?
Anyone who has missing or compromised teeth and wants a permanent set of replacement teeth can benefit from All-on-4® dental implants. An ideal candidate for All-on-4® dental implants is someone who already wears dentures or is missing multiple teeth. All-on-4® is also an alternative for people who do not have the jawbone density required to support a full set of individual dental implants, the time to have individual implants placed, or the budget to pay for them. Thanks to the All-on-4® technique, a full set of replacement teeth is faster and more affordable than ever.

The Process of Getting All-on-4® at Premier Dental Center
Surgery typically takes approximately 2.5 hours for each arch. We can install your All-on-4® dental implants on your upper arch, your lower arch, or on both arches at the same time. While Dr. Nazarian’s skill makes the process look easy, the surgery is a complex procedure that we complete at an efficient pace.
The process of getting All-on-4® dental implants can be laid out in four steps:
The first step is a detailed examination where we will look at your dental records and existing conditions, and whether you have dentures. We will assess your facial structure needs and discuss any other pertinent factors that may come into play when placing your dental implants.
The second step usually involves getting CT scans (3D pictures) completed of the jawbone. The scans will include the positions of the replacement teeth and give the surgical team critical information about where the bone sinuses and nerves are located for the implants.
The third step involves creating a computer simulation of the implants. Taking the time to digitally position the implants into the jawbone allows us to place your All-on-4® dental implants at the location that will give you the most support from your replacement teeth. We will adjust the implants as needed and fabricate your new set of teeth.
The fourth step is the most important step: oral surgery. During surgery, we will provide you with anesthesia and then place the dental implants directly into your jawbone to secure your new set of teeth.
