At Texas Oral Surgery Specialists in Colleyville, TX, Dr. Christopher Tye, D.D.S., M.D., can provide you with secure and natural bite. All-on-4 features a custom set of upper or lower prosthetic teeth that are affixed to the jawbone with four permanent dental implants. The restoration is not removable, and it does not require special adhesives for long-term stability.
Take a Look at the Ideal All-on-4® Candidate
Our All-on-4® tooth replacement system may be the ideal option for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. Without any teeth, these individuals will experience such significant bone loss that they may be unable to wear a traditional denture. Though implants do require some bone density for complete support, All-on-4 posts are much smaller than traditional implants. Furthermore, Dr. Tye will place them at an angle. Thus, he can maximize the remaining healthy tissue and often eliminate the need for bone grafting. Consequently, All-on-4 can also be right for patients who are not candidates for traditional dental implants due to bone loss.
Finally, this procedure is appropriate for anyone who would prefer permanent teeth over dentures. Traditional dentures are removable and require adhesive. Therefore, denture wearers often have pronounced dietary restrictions, and they suffer from embarrassing slippages when eating or speaking. Because All-on-4® implants are permanently set in the mouth, the denture will never move around once it is in place.
Nonetheless, patients must meet appropriate health standards to qualify for implants. Candidates should have overall good health with no autoimmune diseases, diabetes, or related conditions that could affect healing.

All-on-4 Allows for Immediate Dental Function
Although we provide traditional implant-supported dentures, All-on-4 offers distinct advantages to qualified patients. Along with a reduced need for bone grafting, perhaps its biggest benefit is that you can enjoy an immediately restored smile. Collaborating with your general dentist, who will provide the restoration, Dr. Tye can make sure that a temporary but highly lifelike denture is attached the same day. This prosthetic will allow you to eat normally with few dietary modifications, if any. When you have made a complete recovery, your dentist will attach your permanent denture. Dr. Tye will monitor your healing and determine when you can receive the final prosthetic. Typically, a complete recovery will take about four to six months.
