They are suitable for patients that has no teeth present on the upper or lower arch and want a fixed prosthesis that looks a feel just like their own teeth.

What are they?
Typically for implants are placed in one jaw that has no teeth. These implants will support a fixed prosthesis that will simulate the missing teeth and gum
What the difference between all-on-4 implants and removable full dentures?
All-on-4 implants are not removable unless by a dentist. They have the advantage over dentures as they are more stable as they are fixed to the jaw and more comfortable as they are less bulky.
How are they done?
An initial examination is done and a 3D x-ray is ordered to assess available bone for implant placements. If there is insufficient bone width or length then a bone graft procedure may be required for 6 months. The implants are then placed and allowed to integrate for 3-4 months. The prosthesis are then custom fabricated to fit on the implants and are ready for use.
How do I clean them?
It is important to clean both above and below the prosthesis. Above the prosthesis can be done with conventional toothbrushing. Below the prosthesis is trickier but can usually be done by using a super floss where you thread it underneath the flanges and slide it from side to side. Additionally, you should visit your dentist yearly to have them removed and cleaned directly.
