All-on-4 Dental Implants
Rather than live with the discomfort of tooth loss or the hassle of dentures, many patients are choosing a better option: dental implants.
If you do not qualify for traditional implants due to jaw recession, you can still enjoy an implant-supported denture with All-on-4®.
Learn why our dentists recommend this incredible technique for our patients in the greater Harrisonburg, VA, region.
Fewer Implants, Same Stability
You're probably aware of the many benefits that come with dental implants. Compared to traditional dental prosthetics, implant-supported restorations are more comfortable, stable, and convenient. Implants also act as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and protecting your oral health. But what makes All-on-4 different from traditional dental implants?
Are Patients Who Choose All-on-4 Happy With Their Results?
"I am so pleased with the dental work I have had done at Smiles for Life. It is great to be able to smile again without being embarrassed about broken, ugly teeth...Those who knew me before tell me how nice and natural my teeth look, almost to the point of embarrassment. I am so pleased with the results, and my family is also very pleased. Many of them have chosen Smiles for Life as well for their dental care. Even my great grandchildren like going to the dentist there. Thank you Smiles for Life for giving me back the ability to enjoy a good meal again and to have a confident smile. I would highly recommend Smiles for Life for any dental care." Charlotte Campbell, Mount Crawford, VA

Candidates for All-on-4
Since implants require a surgical procedure, you need to be in good health to qualify. Certain medical conditions, like autoimmune disorders and uncontrolled diabetes, can put you at higher risk for complications. Make sure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery and tell the dentist if you have a history of adverse effects from anesthesia.
All-on-4 is designed to accommodate jaw recession but only up to a certain point. If your bone density is too low, you face potential implant failure. During your consultation, we will take 3D scans of your jaw to determine if bone grafting is necessary.
We only recommend dental implants for patients who are nonsmokers. If you smoke, you will need to quit several months before implant surgery and refrain from using tobacco products throughout your entire treatment. Your dentist will speak to you about the potential risks and discuss your nonsurgical tooth replacement options.
Save On Your Dental Implants
Smiles for Life Dental Care offers patients in the greater Harrisonburg region several options to make dental implants more affordable.

A Closer Look at the Procedure
What to Expect During Treatment
Before you leave the office, we will attach temporary dentures to your implants. This gives you a functional set of teeth to wear while you heal.
Don't be nervous about the procedure.
Sedation Can Ensure Your Comfort
Does fear of the dentist or worry about pain keep you from scheduling dental treatment? If so, you are not alone. Dental phobia is a real problem for many of our patients in the Harrisonburg region. We understand your concerns and can offer an easy solution with sedation dentistry.
Our dentists are qualified to administer several types of sedation, such as nitrous oxide, oral conscious, and IV sedation. These drugs induce a state of heightened relaxation, allowing you to get through your treatment in comfort. During your consultation, we can discuss your needs and determine if sedation can help you during dental implant treatment.
Maintaining Your Results
Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Make sure to practice good oral hygiene and attend regular checkups with your dentist. Your denture will be made from premium restorative materials and will not stain or break easily. Nonetheless, treat your prosthetic with care and avoid chewing on anything that would damage natural teeth. If you have any questions, please give us a call. We will be happy to provide more detailed instructions for maintaining your All-on-4 denture.
