All-on-4 Implants in Torrance, CA
At the office of Drs. Steven and Michelle Okamoto, we are proud to be providers of All-on-4 implants in Torrance, CA. With the innovative treatment approach of All-on-4, we are able to completely restore an entire arch of teeth with minimal implant surgery and without the hassle of utilizing loose, ill-fitting prosthetics. With All-on-4, patients receive secure and permanent replacement teeth, which prove to be truly life changing.
What Makes All on 4 Different?
When you are missing all natural teeth in your upper and/or lower jaw arch, you have a small handful of options for repairing your smile. While many patients choose removable dentures, these prosthetics are infamous for coming loose during wear, making patients uncomfortable, and preventing them from enjoying a wide variety of foods to maintain proper nutrition. Dental implants provide a more secure and permanent way to replace teeth, but full implant treatment for an entire arch of teeth can be costly, especially if patients require pre-treatments, like bone grafts.
All-on-4 makes the process of restoring your entire smile through implant dentistry more affordable and less invasive, while still providing lasting results. Instead of a full arch of implants, Dr. Okamoto places just four implant posts at strategic locations to permanently anchor a full arch of prosthetic teeth. These implants are longer and placed at specific angles to better incorporate into areas of reduced bone density, negating the need for a bone graft. When attached to implant posts, your new teeth through All-on-4 are non-removable, except by our implant dentist, and feel more like your own teeth.
Full Smile Restorations with All on 4 in Torrance
Dr. Okamoto recommends All-on-4 for patients who have existing removable dentures and are interested in finding a way to replace teeth with an alternative that supports better oral health and includes less daily maintenance. As a skilled professional in implant placement and restoration, Dr. Okamoto can surgically embed all of your implants right at his office and provide your life-like comprehensive restoration as well.
Patients who are missing most of their natural teeth and are facing comprehensive extraction and replacement due to damage, gum disease, or even complications from cancer can also be candidates for All-on-4 implant treatment. Dr. Okamoto evaluates all patients’ oral health, including gum tissue, bone density, and condition of existing teeth to recommend a plan of care that meets your needs.
