All-on-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants offer permanent, non-removable teeth in just one day.The innovative procedure places a complete arch of permanent teeth on just 4 dental implants.

Dental Implants are a natural choice to replace missing teeth.

Single Tooth Implants

When you have one tooth missing, a single dental implant is inserted into the bone to replace the root part of that tooth; a crown then goes on top to simulate an actual tooth.

Replace Multiple Teeth

When you have more than one tooth missing, dental implants provide an ideal replacement mechanism. You don’t even need one implant for every missing tooth.

Implant Supported Dentures

Dental Implants can even make removable dentures more comfortable, effective and healthier to wear.

Nobel Biocare® All-on-4™ “Teeth in a Day” Treatment

Chapko and Shah Modern Dentistry serves the Belvidere and surrounding communities in Boone County, Butler County, McHenry County, Ogle County, and Winnebago County

Dr. James Chapko is proud to provide the highest standard in dental implant treatment — Nobel Biocare® All-on-4™ — for patients who have lost all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch or will soon be losing all of their teeth. This remarkable solution is called “All-on-4” because a hybrid denture can be fixed on as few as four dental implants.* The entire process of inserting the dental implants and having the hybrid denture attached can be accomplished in the same day. And, due to the unique design of the Nobel Biocare All-on-4 implant system, patients can typically receive this treatment without need for costly bone or sinus grafting.

Nobel Biocare’s multi-unit abutment allows for the tilting of the two back implants. This means longer implants can be positioned in the front part of the jawbone, rather than in the back where the bone is often resorbed. This reduces the need for vertical bone augmentation. Anchoring the implants in better quality bone improves support for the denture. The forward placement helps avoid critical nerves, and in the case of an upper denture, helps avoid the maxillary sinus.

Both the upper and lower arch can be treated in this manner, although more patients are eager to replace their lower removable denture with an All-on-4 hybrid denture because removable lower overdentures have a great tendency to slip and become dislodged while speaking and eating.

All-on-4™ may be your solution to better oral health. For more information about All-on-4™ implants schedule your consultation with Dr. Chapko today!

The Advantages of Nobel Biocare® All-on-4™ Treatment versus a Removable Overdenture

  • Dental implants preserve jawbone quality and bone density, and thus your facial structure and appearance. You don’t have to look 80 years old when you are 50 years old and become a denture-wearer anymore!
  • You will once again be able to enjoy the foods you love and taste them as well. A very common complaint of denture patients is that they had no idea they would lose upward of 75% of their taste when the roof of their mouth was covered with a traditional full upper denture. The All-on-4 treatment eliminates the coverage of your palate and greatly improves quality of life. Eat what you want with confidence and enjoy your food once again.
  • You will no longer need to use messy creams or adhesives to secure your denture in place.
  • Dentures fixed on implants do not move. Slippage and gum tissue irritation are eliminated.
  • The strength of your bite will be so increased that you will be able to eat all of your favorite foods. Your health will improve as you drink more water without fear of loosening your denture and as you eat the full range of nutritious foods.
  • Hybrid dentures are so stable they feel and function like natural teeth. You’ll even floss and brush them like natural teeth.
  • With proper care, hybrid dentures that are supported and fixed on implants can last the rest of your life.
