“Dental implants for all your teeth, all in one day”
Today, more than 35 million Americans do not have any teeth. Thanks to advances in implant dentistry, the best and most cost-effective option for total tooth replacement may be a dental implant procedure known as “All-on-Four.” When performed by our experienced Tampa & Clearwater dentists, Nobody will be able to tell that you have All-on-4 dental implants, as they look like your natural teeth.
The All-On-Four procedure is designed to permanently replace all your teeth on a single arch, using only four total implants for each arch. Simply put, it replaces all of your teeth on the upper or the lower with just four dental implants. While it might be conceivable to use more or fewer posts, NuSmile has found four to be the optimal number for each arch.
Benefits of All-on-Four

- Allow you to experience the hot and cold of your food, as well as the taste
- Allow you to bite with increased force, so you can eat all your favorite foods again
- Prevent bone deterioration
- Restore your facial features
All on FourVs Single Implants
Individual implants to replace each tooth are impractical and not recommended. When you consider that there are usually 28 functional teeth (excluding wisdom teeth), replacing teeth individually can be more expensive and may not offer better results. All-on-Four, however, is less costly and takes less time. What’s more, All-on-Four dental implant solutions will allow you to eat any type of food you want. There is no need to avoid certain types of food. Best of all, patients can receive this state-of-the-art procedure in a single day, as NuSmile Dental provides its patients with some of the best all-on-four implants Tampa & Clearwater have to offer.
Initially, NuSmile does a comprehensive work-up that includes taking a set of models, exposing intraoral X-rays as needed, and taking a CBCT (cone beam CT scan) 3D X-ray. We may need to pull one or two healthy teeth in order to make space for the solution. We will also determine if you will need bone grafting to build up the jaw bone.
The implant serves as a replacement for the root of the missing teeth. The implants are strategically placed to offer the most effective support. By rigidly connecting the new teeth to the implants, they stabilize each other. Think of this arrangement like a chair supported by four legs. When positioned near the perimeter of the chair, the legs provide the most stability to the chair, and prevent the chair from collapsing when you sit on it, thereby applying force to it. It’s the same with four properly placed implants.
A replacement tooth called a crown is then created and attached to each implant. Over the next two to six months, the implants and the bone bond together to form an anchor for your artificial teeth. In addition to providing a strong foundation for your implants, bone fusion prevents future bone loss in the jaw, helping you maintain a more youthful facial structure and better oral health. If you're looking for a top dentist Tampa or Clearwater has to offer, look no further than NuSmile Dental.
The cost of All-On-4 dental implants can vary depending on the material used and how many fake teeth you need. All-On-4 dental implants can be quite expensive (up to $35,000), so it’s important to see if insurance or discounts could apply.
