All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants, also known as implant-supported dentures, are an effective way to restore missing teeth on both your upper and lower arches.
All-On-4 Dental Implants at Haslam Dental
All-on-4 dental implants are an alternative to dentures or full mouth dental implants. In most cases, this procedure requires only 4 implants, but can require 6 or 8 depending on the health of your gums and the condition of your jaw bone. The all-on-4 technique reduces the need for bone grafting and the implants act just like natural teeth, making this procedure quicker, easier, and more comfortable for patients.
Will I Have Teeth During the Process?
You will walk out with secured temporary teeth. Once we place the implants, we will provide you with a temporary set of dentures to use until the implants have fully healed. Once the implants are fully healed, we will provide you with the permanent dentures to use.

How Long Does the All-On-4 Implant Process Take?
After you have completed your consultation and decided that all-on-4 dental implants are right for you, we will schedule an appointment to get the implants placed. This procedure normally takes 1-2 hours. After the implants have been placed, we will wait several months before fitting you for the implant-supported denture. On average, the entire process takes 4 – 6 months from start to finish. The time it takes can vary slightly depending on any prior dental work that needs to be done.Request Your All-On-4 Implant Consultation
Are All-On-4 Dental Implants Safe?
Yes, we have adopted many forms of technology allowing us to have a more predictable and safe outcome for the patient. We use surgical guides to design implant placement and 3D printers to fabricate teeth. This allows us to give patients a beautiful smile the day of their surgery.

All-On-4 Implant Aftercare
Following the procedure, you may experience some of the typical discomforts associated with any oral surgery, including swelling of the gums and face, pain near the implant site, and minor bleeding. These symptoms should subside gradually within a week.
- Minor Bleeding. It’s common to have a small amount of blood in your saliva for a day or two after your procedure. If you are experiencing bleeding, bite on a moistened gauze pad for 30 minutes. If bleeding persists for more than a couple days, call our office at (801) 479-1700.
- Swelling. To minimize swelling, place an ice pack on the cheek near the surgical area for 10 minutes, then remove the ice pack for 20 minutes and repeat.
- Oral Hygiene. Properly caring for your implants will help them last a lifetime. You should treat your implants as you do your natural teeth. This means that you should brush and floss, twice a day. We also recommend getting a water irrigation device (water flosser) for cleaning. Following the implant placement it is important to be gentle when brushing near the surgical site. You should also have regular dental checkups for implant maintenance and wellness checks.
- Pain Management. We will prescribe you pain medication following your surgery. You will likely want to take pain medication regularly for the first couple of days following your procedure. Any pain you experience should gradually subside over the first week following the procedure.
It is important to avoid spitting, sucking on straws, or smoking for at least a week following your surgery. This can dislodge the blood clot and slow the healing process. It is also important to stay hydrated and eat plenty of nourishing food to help you heal quicker. Eating can be challenging following the surgery, so we recommend eating soft, cool foods and chewing away from the implant site to avoid disturbing the healing process. If you have any questions about the recovery process, contact our office and we will be happy to answer your questions.
