All-on-4 Dental Implants

Are you tired of dentures that slip, but have been told you do not qualify for implant-supported dentures?

All-on-4® dental implants could change your world. This advanced method is faster, more affordable, and allows more people to qualify.

Let Hopkin Oral Surgery in Salt Lake City, UT, share how the proven All-on-4 method can securely restore your smile... 

Have You Been Told You Aren't a Good Candidate for Implants? It's Time to Get a Second Opinion

Even if you've been told you don't qualify for an implant-supported denture, you still may be a good candidate for All-on-4 dental implants that can support a full arch of teeth, either top or bottom. 

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.

Poor Health?

If you've been told you are not healthy enough to undergo multiple surgical procedures, you may still qualify since the new method often does not require the added steps of bone grafting and sinus lifts.

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. 

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

This innovative method developed by Nobel Biocare® allows for a long-lasting solution in less time and for less cost than a traditional implant-secured denture, which requires a dentist to place as many as eight dental implants.
All-on-4 implant placement
Because All-on-4 dental implants are placed at an angle instead of directly down, they can support an entire arch of teeth and are generally a more affordable option.

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! As fun as it is to need work done, Hopkin Oral made my experience exceptional. For a specialty doctor office I was surprisingly in and out fairly quickly, and excellent work done. Thank you again!

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.

All-on-4 Treatments Offer a Satisfying Solution to Patients

Less is More  The Case For Fewer,  Strategically Placed Implants

Traditional 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. 

All-on-4 

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)."

Steps to a Better Smile

Dr. Hopkin can give you life-changing results with a single procedure. 

Consultation 

During a consultation with Dr. Hopkin, he will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for All-on-4 implants based on your current oral health and your needs. 

Planning

We will scan your mouth with 3D imaging technology to create a precise model so our dentist can locate the best spots to place your implants.  

Placement 

Similar to traditional implants, patients receive anesthesia before small incisions are made to reach desired sites for the implants. Our surgeon will then place the implants before sealing the incision. 

Recovery

In most cases, we can immediately attach restorations to your implants on the same day of your surgery. The average recovery period lasts from 3-6 months.

Permanent Restoration 

Once the tissue surrounding your implants has fully healed, we can attach your personalized, permanent denture to restore your smile.

Hopkin Oral Surgery Staff
Dr. Dustin J. Hopkin and everyone at Hopkin Oral Surgery strive to make patients comfortable and answer all their questions. Dr. Hopkin is fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese.

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

Sedation Dentistry

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.

All-on-4 implants are typically less expensive than traditional implant-supported dentures, but we understand that cost can still be a concern.
