You do not need a dental implant for every one of your missing teeth! That’s the beauty of All-on-4® dental implants. This technique uses only four dental implants that act as secure anchors for a removable prosthetic. All-on-4® has earned the name of Same Day Dental Implants because of the dentist ability to take scans in the morning, create a mold to prepare the procedure, then surgically place the dental implants, all in one day! At Fillmore Dental, you’ll walk out of our office the same day with a temporary prosthetic over your freshly placed dental implants.
No longer do you have to worry about traditional dentures. No more excessive cleaning, no sticky adhesives, no more embarrassment! All-on-4® alleviates all the problems that come with dentures, and significantly improves your wellness. Thanks to All-on-4®, you’ll be able to enjoy the simple things like eating and socializing with friends without feeling self-conscious of your missing teeth.
The All-on-4® procedure starts with your initial Free Consultation at Fillmore Dental. Using only the latest medical technology, Dr. Fonrodona will take a complete CT scan and X-Rays of your mouth to plan for the actual surgery. If you’re dental health is on point, Dr. Fonrodona will place all four dental implants at the same time, the same day. You’ll receive a temporary denture to place on top while the dental implants take time to osseointegrate with the jawbone.
Afterward a healing period of four to six months, Dr. Fonrodona will follow up with you and replace the temporary with a permanent prosthetic. During future dental appointments, the dentist will make sure your All-on-4® dental implants are behaving correctly.

Existing medical conditions, such as diabetes, can also affect the success rate of your All-on-4® dental implants. Dr. Fonrodona will discuss this with you during your initial Free Consultation.
Just about everyone is a candidate for All-on-4® dental implants. In most cases, our patients are without most or all of their teeth in one or both arches of their mouth. During your initial Free Consultation, Dr. Fonrodona will overview your current oral health, past medical history and existing medical conditions to determine if any steps need to be taken prior to the implant procedure.
