All-on-4 dental implants are an advanced dental technology that allows for replacement of large sections or a full set of teeth, using only four implants. The procedure, done by an oral surgeon, consists of placing four titanium dental implants into the jawbone.
These implants act as a foundation for placement of a new set of teeth, which is attached to the embedded posts for support. This allows for a more cohesive and natural look than when teeth are replaced with individual implants.

Dr. Wadhwa, a highly esteemed oral surgeon at Coxsackie Dental Arts, specializes in the placement of All-on-4 implants. He takes time to discuss whether this option meets your oral health needs, and answer any questions you might have about All-on-4 implants.
The process requires multiple visits, starting with your initial consultation.
During your initial consultation, you have an oral assessment, X-rays are taken of your jaw and mouth, and you and Dr. Wadhwa discuss his recommendations for your All-on-4 implants. Measurements and color matching are done to prepare your new set of teeth.
If you need to have teeth extracted before your new teeth are placed, this can be done on a separate visit, or it could be done the day of your oral surgery. The day of your surgery, Dr. Wadhwa places the titanium posts while you are sedated for comfort.
You will leave with a temporary set of teeth to wear while your titanium posts heal and fuse to your bone. You will return later for placement of your new, permanent set of teeth.
