All-on-4 Dental Implants

Patients who choose implant dentures often cannot receive standard dental implants without first undergoing bone grafting surgery.

Drs. John M. Pinnix IV and George A. Betancourt offer All-on-4® dental implants, which can usually be placed without preliminary grafting.

Why do patients at our Charlotte, NC, practice choose this advanced technique?

4 Implants Are All You Need

If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth on either arch, this treatment can completely restore your bite with a denture that will stay firmly in place at all times thanks to four strategically placed dental implants. 
All-on-4 can be especially beneficial to those who would otherwise need a bone graft before receiving an implant-supported denture but desire a faster and more cost-effective solution.

Wow! Had an amazing smile transformation thanks to Doctors Betancourt and Pinnix. I had an issue with 2 older implants and didn't think much could be done. I was a complicated case to say the least! They worked out a solution and my smile (and ablitity to chew properly) was fully restored! I'm very grateful and highly recommend them!

Do I qualify for All-on-4 dental implants?

Good Candidates Have:

Complete Tooth Loss

Our doctors will always try to save any remaining teeth if possible. However, there are cases in which removing and replacing all the teeth on a dental arch is the best option to restore your health.

Jawbone Atrophy

This method is especially helpful for patients who have experienced tissue loss in their jaw–a natural side effect of missing teeth. This technique can help you avoid the need for a bone grafting procedure.

Otherwise Good Oral Health

Certain oral health issues, such as gum disease, can interfere with the success of your implants. Our dentists can recommend additional dental treatments to restore candidacy.

But the treatment is not right for everyone...

All-on-4 implants are specifically designed to replace an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. We do not recommend this type of dental implant for patients missing a single tooth or those who have retained the majority of their natural teeth. If you have less extensive tooth loss, an implant-supported crown or bridge may be a more effective solution. When you arrive at our practice for your consultation, we will help you determine if traditional implants or All-on-4 implants are better for you.

Let's Compare All-on-4 with Traditional Implants...

Patients do not have to compromise the quality of their results if they are unable to get traditional dental implants. All-on-4 treatment is highly effective when performed by an experienced oral implantologist such as Dr. Pinnix or Dr. Betancourt.

Why is implant treatment at your practice so successful?

We Use Cutting-Edge Technology for Superior Results

Dental software

At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, serving Charlotte, Ballantyne, and nearby areas, we use advanced dental technology to ensure the most successful implant results possible.

For example, Dr. Pinnix and Dr. Betancourt can utilize our CAD/CAM system to take digital impressions and create 3-D images of your smile. These images allow for more precise planning and conservative treatment. We can also take digital x-rays to accurately visualize the supporting structures of your smile while designing your implant treatment plan. 

What will my treatment timeline look like?

Once you and your dentist have determined this method of tooth replacement is right for you, the procedure can be completed in a single visit. Here is what you can expect when you arrive at our Charlotte, NC, office on the day of your procedure...

For your comfort, we will apply local anesthesia to the treatment area. Dental sedation is available to help particularly anxious patients stay relaxed during treatment. 

Implant Placement

The four titanium implants will be strategically placed in the jawbone in predetermined locations based on your x-rays.

Denture Placement

Temporary teeth will be attached to the implants, providing immediately restored function and comfort. We will provide instructions on how to care for your restoration.

Permanent Teeth

Once the dental implants have completely integrated with the jaw, around four to six months later, you will return to the dentist's office to have your permanent denture attached.

This has to be expensive, right?

Many Patients Find All-on-4 Is More Affordable

While the many important benefits of dental implants are no secret, some candidates may hesitate to seriously consider treatment due to the cost. Although every patient's unique needs dictate how much treatment will cost, it is generally more affordable than restoring your smile with traditional implants because:

  • It requires fewer implants
  • It usually requires only one surgery
  • It can allow you to undergo placement without preliminary dental bone grafting

Paying for All-on-4 Dental Implants 

Third-Party Financing

While some insurance plans will pay for parts of the treatment, All-on-4 implants are rarely completely covered. However, you can reduce your initial out-of-pocket expenses with affordable financing plans through CareCredit® and Citi® Health Card financing.
