Restore a Full Arch of Missing Teeth
Patients who are missing a full arch of teeth often assume that their smile is beyond repair. Thankfully this isn’t the case, as the All-on-4 procedure allows Dr. Shlafer to secure a full denture with just four dental implants.
The implants are strategically placed in the densest areas of your jawbone to ensure your dentures remain stable. There’s also no need for bone grafting to qualify for All-on-4, making it an ideal option for patients with limited bone mass.
Best of all, Dr. Shlafer will place all your implants in just one appointment and provide you with a set of fully-functional temporary teeth. This means you won’t have to live with gaps in your smile while you wait for your permanent dentures.

- Doesn’t require a bone graft
- Minimal recovery time
- Looks natural
- Restores chewing function
- Easy to care for
- Secured to your jaw

How Our Technology Improves Your Procedure

By anticipating any potential setbacks in advance, Dr. Shlafer can place your implants with total precision and ensure your safety. Ultimately, our advanced technology will reduce your time spent in the dental chair so you can enjoy your new smile sooner.
Am I a Candidate for All-on-4?
The biggest advantage of All-on-4 for many patients is that it maximizes your available bone tissue, eliminating the need for a bone graft. This allows lots of patients who otherwise wouldn’t qualify for implants to take advantage of this procedure.
For patients who suffer from jawbone deterioration, All-on-4 presents a treatment option that previously wasn’t available or affordable to them. Thanks to this innovative technique, more patients can restore their smile than ever before.
