About All On 4 Dental Implants – Chicago, IL
The “All On 4” dental implant treatment involves surgically placing four implants. The implants are used to support a fixed denture, or overdenture, and maintain your jaw’s structural integrity. The four implants bond with the jaw to mimic the pressure that would be placed on it by your natural teeth.
The name “All On” comes from the fact that the fixed dentures or overdentures are all resting on these four implants, rather than needing an implant for each missing tooth.
Sometimes we may recommend the “All on 6” treatment, which is similar to “All on 4” except it requires the placement of two additional implants. The two additional implants are strategically places in the jaw to help with strength and support. Both “All on 4” and “All on 6” help restore an entire smile in just a fraction of the time. This approach helps your mouth heal faster and is less expensive than replacing all missing teeth with an individual implant.
Someone who was previously unable to afford to replace an entire mouth of missing teeth can now restore their smile at a fraction of the cost. It sounds too good to be true, but we’ve helped hundreds of patients do just that thanks to this innovative treatment.
What To Expect with “All on 4”
The surgery itself takes about two hours and can be completed entirely in our office under general anesthesia. Because all of the implants are placed at the same time, it is a great option for anyone that isn’t too fond of the dentist and just want to get it all done at once, or has a busy schedule and wants to get the process completed in as few appointments as possible.
Using traditional implants to replace an entire set of teeth typically requires about 12 implants, bone grafting, and at least six months of healing before your mouth is ready for overdentures. With the All On 4 dental implants Chicago approach, the implants and temporary dentures are installed at the same time, and permanent dentures are ready within 3-6 months.

“Thanks to Dr Abboud and his personnel for the exemplary care I received. Before my consultation,Dr. Abboud spoke with my dentist in Poland in order to fully understand the type of implant procedure I had in Poland. This is probably not a required practice for dentists, but Dr. Abboud took the time and for this I am very appreciative.” – Jadwiga T. – Yelp
