The All-on- 4® Treatment Concept
Fairbanks, AK


Render image of All-On-4 at Fairbanks Periodontal Associates in Fairbanks, AKHere at Fairbanks Periodontal Associates, our qualified dental professionals use our All-on-4® Treatment Concept, which is an implant retained denture system that uses titanium dental implants to attach your denture on the jawbone. Our patients love it because they don’t have to remove it when going to sleep, there is no caution on the type of food you can eat, and they don’t have to use over the counter adhesives. Our oral surgeons partner with our dentists to ensure the denture stays in place and make it feel as close to the jawbone as possible.

How it Works


Our dental experts first place titanium implant posts into your jawbone before they attach the denture using this treatment concept. Your titanium implant posts will serve as a secure, strong point that holds your denture in place. These implant posts resemble a screw, but they are available in a range of lengths and widths.

However, implant posts used for our All-on-4® Treatment Concept are a little longer than other posts and can reach the thicker bone mass. Our qualified dental professionals also place them at an angle that solidifies the anchor strength. The added placement and length means that grafting the bone isn’t necessary, and the procedure allows our oral surgeons to place your denture device.

The amount of conversation about the safety of having a metal placed in your mouth has increased in the recent past. Our dental implant posts are made with titanium, which is biocompatible, allowing our oral surgeons to perform surgical repairs over the human skeleton. It has features that make it hard for the body to reject it, and we use living tissue that can grow around it and fuse to the bone. Unlike other oral treatment procedures, no mercury is placed in your mouth or involved in our All-on-4® Treatment Concept.

The Procedure for the All-on-4® Treatment Concept


Placing dental implant posts with this treatment concept starts with 3D dental x-rays, which aid in planning the placement of the dentures. After establishing a plan, our qualified medics will use a specialized drill to prepare the jawbone. The oral surgeon will then clear the four spots on the bone to create room for the placement of the implants. Our team of professionals will then place the denture on the jawbone and attach the implants permanently. However, it will take some time for the dentures to heal, and during this period, the patient will have to eat soft foods and be easy on his or her new teeth. The healing process stretches beyond just the surface tissue to include the fusing of the implant. However, medical problems, such as constant smoking, medications, and diabetes, can slow the healing process or halt it.

The All-on-4® Treatment Concept has a success rate of over 95%, but our qualified team of dentists will notice almost immediately if it turns out unsuccessful.
