At BridgeView Dental, we believe that everyone deserves a functional smile that they want to show off. Damaged or missing teeth can affect your quality of life, making it difficult to eat, talk, and smile comfortably. Some people turn to traditional removable dentures to solve these problems, but find that they are not a sufficient substitute for healthy, natural teeth.
Dr. Lance Loveless is proud to offer the non-removable All-on-4® treatment to give you back your smile in as little as one visit. All-on-4® dental implants create a strong foundation for long-lasting, functional, and aesthetically pleasing dentures.

Benefits of All-on-4® Implants
All-on-4® dental implants, also known as “teeth in one day,” are changing the way that people smile. Traditional dentures are typically secured with messy adhesives and can be a hassle. They can come loose and even fall out unexpectedly, leaving many individuals wanting a more stable, long-lasting solution.
The benefits of All-on-4® implants include:
- Natural-looking results that can be seen in one day
- Long-lasting, non-removable restorations
- Minimal office visits are necessary
- You can eat whatever you want with ease
- They prevent jaw bone collapse and sagging
- Many people report increased confidence after the procedure
- Immediate placement is possible, often without bone grafts
- You may eliminate any oral discomfort you were experiencing prior to treatment
All-on-4® implants are often a great option for patients who have missing or severely damaged teeth. The treatment consists of placing four tilted implants per arch of teeth. These implants are made of small, biocompatible titanium posts that can fuse with the jawbone and act as a replacement tooth root.
All-on-4® Implant Candidates
Many patients can benefit from the comfort, security, and stability that All-on-4® implants offer. During your individualized consultation, Dr. Loveless will determine your candidacy for these effective restorations. Dr. Loveless prioritizes patient comfort and satisfaction and will work with you to find an appropriate dental treatment to suit your unique needs.
There are many factors that can influence your candidacy for this treatment. Ideal candidates for All-on-4® implants have enough jaw bone structure to support the implants. However, many patients who are not candidates for other implants may still be eligible for All-on-4® implants. The titanium posts are placed at an angle, allowing for greater treatment flexibility.
Dr. Loveless will perform a variety of diagnostic tests to determine your candidacy. If you have any remaining teeth, Dr. Loveless will determine if any extractions are necessary.
What to Expect from the All-on-4® Procedure
Detailed & Customized Treatment Plan
Based on your diagnostic visit, Dr. Loveless will create a detailed and customized treatment plan to help you achieve your smile goals. This plan will include the exact depth and position that your implants will be placed. The goal of the procedure is to stop irreversible bone loss and provide a solid foundation for your non-removable dentures.
On the day of your implant placement, Dr. Loveless will use your customized treatment plan to ensure that each post is positioned in its optimal location. He will place a minimum of four implants per arch. Then, a functional and natural-looking temporary denture will be placed, giving you a new smile in just one visit!
Temporary Functional Denture & Healing Time
You will wear this temporary denture as your implants heal. It will allow you to talk, chew, and smile with confidence. While every patient is different, you will likely be ready for your permanent denture after several months. Dr. Loveless will work with you to monitor your healing progress.
Your final denture will be artfully crafted to mimic natural teeth and to compliment your facial proportions. Once your All-on-4® denture is placed, you will be able to enjoy all of the daily benefits that natural-looking, non-removable teeth have to offer.
