All-on-4™ dental implants were created specifically for patients with low bone density. Whether bone loss has occurred from gum disease or ill-fitting dental appliances, this technique was designed to make the most use of available bone with just four strategically placed implants. This solution has been in use for over a decade and has a success rate of 98.5 percent after four years.
The All-on-4 technique is specifically designed to use only four implants that are available for immediate function. All-on-4 dental implants do not typically require bone grafting, so they are an ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume.

This innovative technique uses just four implants to stabilize your denture and prevent further deterioration from occurring. The success is in the placement of the implants. After determining which spots have the greatest density, our doctors will place two implants at 90 degree angles in the front of your mouth and two implants at 45 degree angles in the back of your mouth. This will provide enough leverage to allow normal biting and chewing functions without enabling the implants to come loose on their own.
Once the implants are in place, the Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute doctors will attach a temporary set of dentures to be used immediately. After a three to six month healing period, you will be given a new set of permanent dentures.
