About All-on-4 Dental Implants
ACE Dental of New Braunfels offers the All-on-4 treatment concept from Nobel Biocare™ as a tooth replacement option for patients with full-arch tooth loss. This revolutionary approach entails the unique positioning of four or six dental implants in the top or bottom arch that can then be used to support a lifelike full-arch restoration. When compared to other types of dental implant choices, All-on-4 or All-on-6 requires a smaller number of implants yet can still provide a stable solution for replacing a whole arch of missing teeth. Our skilled general dentists are pleased to provide All-on-4 dental implants as an alternative to traditional tooth replacement methods. If you or a loved one have multiple missing teeth, please arrange for a consultation at our practice to learn more about this exciting implant option!
"I have hated going to the dentist forever. All of them judging me for the condition of my teeth. I changed dentist every time because of this. I went to Ace with the intent of another extraction because I wait too long. Dr Park wasn’t judgemental at all. She listened to me and heard my story and provided me a treatment plan. I’m 2/3 done. I can smile without being ashamed. There’s more work but she is patient with me. I will complete my treatment plan and go to Ace and their wonderful staff always. Big thanks to Dr Park and everyone at Ace for turning my smile back on."- T.D. / Google / Apr 10, 2021

Are You a Candidate for All-on-4 or All-on-6?
Patients who need to replace most or all of their teeth in one or both arches may be good candidates for tooth replacement with All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants. Many individuals find the All-on-4 treatment concept to be an attractive option over removable appliances, thanks to the long-term benefits of implant solutions. Since implants form a secure bond with the jaw, they can allow for increased stability when eating and enhanced confidence when speaking. In a number of cases, All-on-4 dental implants can be placed even when there is bone loss in the jaw, making this option ideal for a number of New Braunfels, TX patients. Implant dentistry might not be recommended for those with certain dental or medical issues or who use tobacco products.
What Is the Treatment Process?
Before getting started with All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants, our team will take advanced digital images of your mouth and plan out your procedure. We will numb the treatment sites with local anesthetic for comfort but may also provide nitrous oxide sedation to help you feel even more relaxed. Our highly trained team will then precisely position four or six implants at certain angles within your jaw. In most cases, a temporary full-arch restoration will also be attached to your implants the same day to maintain the look of your smile and your oral function. This restoration will be worn over the next few months while your implants fuse with the underlying bone. After this occurs, a custom set of replacement teeth will be made and connected to your implants for a beautiful, secure tooth replacement result.
Recovery Following All-on-4 or All-on-6
It is normal to notice jaw tenderness and swelling after having dental implants placed. You may use over-the-counter pain relievers or cold compresses to enhance your comfort as you heal. Tips on caring for your mouth, implants, and replacement teeth will be provided by a member of our team. It is essential to keep up with good oral hygiene each day. Routine dental visits at our New Braunfels, TX practice can also help maintain your oral health and tooth replacements over time. When you visit us for routine cleanings, we will use special instruments to clean your All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants and monitor the condition of your bone and gum tissues.
Insurance Coverage for Implants
A portion of the All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implant treatment may be covered under some dental insurance plans. Though there will probably be some out-of-pocket expenses, we will help maximize your insurance coverage and assist you in finding a comfortable payment solution for any treatment costs. ACE Dental of New Braunfels offers a variety of budget-friendly financial options, including low-interest financing plans.
