All-on-4 Dental Implants
Do you want an implant-supported denture, but have been told you don't qualify for implant placement?
The All-on-4® technique can restore your candidacy for this life-changing dental solution, without the need for bone grafting.
Dr. Mason Pirtle at Precision Dental Partners serving Charlotte, NC, can comfortably perform every step of your All-on-4 procedure.
How All-on-4 Works
Traditional implant-supported dentures are typically secured using 6-10 dental implants. However, many patients do not qualify for treatment because they have lost too much bone tissue to support implant placement.
If you have low bone density due to significant atrophy, you may be a good candidate for All-on-4. The All-on-4 method uses just four implants placed at strategic angles in areas with the most bone density.

Missing All Your Teeth? You Are Not Alone
Don't Put Yourself at Risk For the Effects of Tooth Loss
Thirty-six million Americans do not have any teeth, therefore 36 million Americans are at risk for concerns like:
- Jawbone atrophy
- Weakened jaw muscles
- Changes in facial appearance
- Heart disease
Implants, an implant-supported denture, and a good oral care routine can help stave off these concerns.
Paying for Your Implants
Though Precision Dental Partners is not in-network with any insurance providers, you may still be able to apply your benefits to your treatment. Implants are not covered by insurance, but your insurance may contribute to the cost of your denture.
Out-of-pocket expenses can be managed through CareCredit® financing. This third-party lender allows patients who qualify to create payment plans. This allows you to plan treatment around your budget.

Is All-on-4 Right for You? Exploring Candidacy for Treatment
Be In Good Health
Patients who are considering any type of dental implant must be in good oral and overall health. You should be free of gum disease and healthy enough to undergo surgery. Patients with uncontrolled diabetes or who are undergoing radiation therapy may not be candidates for All-on-4.
Be a Nonsmoker
Patients who are nonsmokers or who are willing to quit make the best candidates for any kind of surgery. Tobacco hinders the body's ability to heal and can increase your risk for implant failure. We recommend quitting tobacco products for several weeks before your surgery and recovery or kicking the habit altogether.
Have Sufficient Bone Density
Though the All-on-4 method requires less jawbone density than traditional dental implants, it still requires a certain degree of bone density to be effective. Our Charlotte dentist will evaluate your jawbone to determine if you're a candidate for these dental implants during your consultation.
Be Committed to Good Oral Care
Even though you'll have prosthetic teeth, you must still maintain a good oral care routine to maintain a healthy environment for your denture and implants. Perform consistent at-home care and attend checkups with your dentist.
What to Expect Throughout the Implant Placement Process
Many patients who have undergone All-on-4 treatment feel comfortable navigating the world with a radiant smile.
Making Your Dental Implants Last
Following an At-Home Routine
We recommend brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and using an oral rinse regularly. You may also benefit from tools like a floss threader or water flosser to help you clean under your denture and around your implants.
Visiting Your Dentist Regularly
Attending regular checkups with our dentist in Charlotte, NC, will allow him to keep an eye on the health of your mouth and the condition of your denture and implants. He can help maintain a healthy environment for your dental restoration and let you know when it's time to replace your denture.
We Also Offer Traditional Implants
Though many patients are good candidates for the All-on-4 method, some would be better suited to traditional dental implants. Our Charlotte office is proud to offer both types of dental implants, and our dentist will help you explore each solution.
