Have You Been Told You Aren't a Good Candidate for Implants? It's Time to Get a Second Opinion
Lack Sufficient Jawbone?
If you've been told you lack the necessary jawbone tissue required for traditional dental implants, you may still qualify for this newer, more advanced technique. Because the implants are smaller and strategically placed, they require less bone mass as an anchor.
Cost Is Holding You Back?
If you cannot afford traditional dental implants, the All-on-4 method avoids the excessive cost, additional procedures, and lengthy recovery period that comes with traditional implants.

All-on-4 Dental Implants: A More Affordable Alternative to Traditional Implants
With just four dental implants, you can enjoy many of the same benefits as a traditional implant-supported denture, including a stable base for your denture and a fully functional smile that looks like natural teeth.
All-on-4 dental treatments place implants at strategic places along the jaw. It's a valuable option for dental patients who have lost bone in their jaw and do not qualify for traditional implants. With fewer implants, the technique is less invasive and it may even cost less than a denture that requires eight or more implants. Treatment costs at our practice average $2,500 to $3,500 per arch.
If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, Dr. Dustin J. Hopkin can restore your smile using the All-on-4® dental implant treatment at his Salt Lake City, UT, office.
How All-on-4 Is Different
Dentists sometimes advertise All-on-4 implants as same-day teeth because they can attach restorations immediately so patients don’t have to live with missing teeth during the healing phase.

Excellent staff and doctor! Got in and out fast, Dr. Hopkin does excellent work. Worth every penny and virtually painless!

Dr Hopkins and his staff were kind and professional. They answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease. The procedure was quick and painless (after the numbing of course) and I have been extremely happy with my implant.View On Google
All-on-4 Treatments Offer a Satisfying Solution to Patients
Less is More The Case For Fewer, Strategically Placed Implants
With traditional dental implants, you may need as many as eight posts to support an entire dental arch. Additionally, traditional implants require adequate bone tissue and a lengthy recovery period of three to six months after the initial surgery, which may leave you without a replacement for your teeth while you wait for the surrounding tissue to heal. Only after this recovery period is complete can you attach implant-based restorations like dentures, crowns, and dental bridges.
By comparison, All-on-4 implants can support a full arch of teeth with as few as four implants, resulting in fewer office visits. In most cases, our dentist can attach tooth restorations to your implants on the same day as your surgery so you don't have to go without your smile during the recovery period. These implants also don't require the same amount of bone tissue as traditional dental implants, so they are also a great option for patients who have lost a lot of bone due to atrophy or periodontal disease.
"I am a general dentist and have had referred many cases to Dr. Hopkin. He is a gifted surgeon who has amazing interpersonal skill ... After seeing his work for the past two years, if my family or I needed to see an oral surgeon, we would be going to Dr. Hopkin (and I don't say that about all the dentists and specialists I have worked with)."

Recovery and Aftercare
The recovery and aftercare process for All-on-4 implants is very similar to traditional implants. The average recovery time varies for each patient, but it usually takes from three to six months for the tissue around the implants to fully heal and integrate with your body.Once the implants are fully fused with your jaw, your temporary denture will be replaced by a custom final denture. To maintain both the implants and your restoration, you should practice good hygiene and schedule regular checkups with Dr. Hopkin.
The Latest Techniques and Technology At Our Salt Lake City Practice
Finding the right placement for each implant is an important step and helps ensure a long-lasting solution. Dr. Hopkin uses 3D imaging technology to create an accurate map of your mouth and determine the optimum location for each implant and maximize your results.
Unfortunately, dental anxiety can deter patients from seeking the treatment they need. As a remedy, we offer various forms of sedation dentistry to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during treatments. We offer nitrous oxide gas, oral sedation, and intravenous sedation.
Concerned About Cost?
All-on-4 implants are typically less expensive than traditional implant-supported dentures, but we understand that cost can still be a concern. To help as many people as possible in the Salt Lake City area receive the dental care they need, Dr. Hopkin's oral surgery practice offers both CareCredit® and in-house financing.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants Using the All-on-4 Method
Does it hurt?
You will receive anesthesia before your procedure begins, so you will not feel any pain during placement. However, implant placement is a surgical procedure, so some post-operative discomfort should be expected. This pain is typically managed easily with ice, over-the-counter pain medication, and prescription medication if needed. It is recommended that you eat a soft diet while your incisions heal to reduce irritation. If you experience extreme pain or pain that cannot be managed, please contact us immediately so we can address your discomfort as soon as possible.
How long will my implants and restoration last?
Implants are made of durable titanium and are designed to last a lifetime. Your custom dentures will wear over time and will eventually need to be replaced. However, with proper care, your dentures can last for a decade or longer. Your dentist will provide you with all the information you need to keep your new smile beautiful for years to come.
Do I need to remove my dentures to clean?
Implant-supported dentures do not require adhesives and remain in place except during routine dental exams and cleanings. Your dentist will secure the dentures directly to your dental implants, and you will treat your new smile just as you would your natural teeth. Because the dentures are attached to the implants in your jaw, there is no need to remove them and no risk of embarrassing slippage.
