All on 4 Dental Implants

in Alexandria, VA

All-on-4 dental implants is a popular procedure if you are searching for a solution to a fixed restoration of your teeth. This distinctive procedure only uses four dental implants for support. These four implants will support an entire arch of either an entire upper or lower jaw full of teeth. The All-on-4 treatment offers you a great alternative if you have traditional dentures but would prefer a permanently placed restoration versus the constant maintenance of taking your dentures in and out every day.

The entire team at INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA shares an office goal. With over three decades of experience, we pride ourselves in being old school when it comes to respecting you and your family and giving you the treatment that we would wish to receive ourselves.

Even if you have been denied a dental implant procedure in the past due to jawbone loss you may now be able to have your smile restored with the All-on-4 solution. In fact, not just if you have suffered bone loss, but nearly all denture wearers and patients who have realized that crown and bridgework are no longer effective treatments can now consider the All-on-4 treatment to have a complete and healthy smile.

The Benefits of All on 4 Dental Implants

The team at INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA is now performing this treatment if you were at one time restricted to traditional dentures and did not have the option of dental implants due to the technology failing to meet your needs. With these advancements you can now:

  • Have a healthy and attractive smile.
  • No longer struggle with the frustration of traditional dentures.
  • Allows you to never wear dentures again.
  • Experience more self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • Provide an overall improved quality of life.
  • Experience the ease of dental implants despite having bone loss.
  • Have an affordable solution to their missing teeth.
  • Experience a reduction in the risk of any future bone loss.
  • To leave with a prototype immediately fixed in place.
  • Enjoy implant placement that can be completed in one visit reducing the time from the start of the treatment to its end results.
  • Reduce your recovery time.
  • Reduce the implant cost over single tooth or bridge implant.
  • Deliver easy maintenance, just like your natural teeth.
  • Restore the ability to eat any kind of food.
  • Let you experience long term results.
  • Restore a younger appearance without the sagging from missing teeth.

The All-on-4 dental implants offers some amazing benefits, but the treatment also does not come without its drawback. Instead of each tooth having its own root, the four implants will now replace all these fourteen individual root systems.


Even with the best of diligence to maintain your oral health things don’t go as planned. Once in a while, and you might find that your teeth need to be restored or replaced. Missing, cracked, damaged, or even decayed teeth will dull your smile. Did you know it can also affect your oral health? At Inspire Dental of Alexandria we offer restorative dentistry to ensure that your teeth and oral health are back to their former state.


It is important to feel confident in your smile, because being confident in your smile means being confident in yourself. Despite this, many people walk around every day, resigned to the fact that their smile is what it is and there is really nothing they can do to change it. But what if that was not the case? What if improving the aesthetic appearance and/or functionality of your smile was easier than you thought?


Almost 50 million Americans experience tooth-loss every year. Dental bridges have traditionally been the best option if you are in this situation. However, there have been continual technological advancements regarding different types of dental implants. Dental implants are becoming both a common and popular procedure to restore a missing tooth or teeth.

The All on 4 Dental Implant Procedure

Prior to the introduction of All-on-4 implants, if you wanted a dental implant, you underwent almost a year of treatment when INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA would extract the teeth first, allow six months of proper healing and denture wearing, then necessary bone grafting with more healing, the placing of the implants, six more months of healing time with more denture wearing and then finally placing the artificial crown tooth on the secured implant. Now, with the introduction of the All-on-4 procedure, the entire process, from the extraction to the implant placement to fixed teeth, is actually possible in just one day.

In the past, if you wanted to replace a traditional denture with a full arch, six to ten implants were necessary to properly support all the artificial teeth and offer enough strength and stability. Now, using the laws of physics and even stronger materials, when the two back implants are placed at an angle, their strength is increased, and fewer implants are then required. The two anterior implants, or front implants, stand upright and the two posterior implants, or back implants, are placed at 45-degree angles. The specific placement of these implants is the reason that the All-on-4 is now able to be placed in a mouth that previously required a bone graft because of jaw atrophy. Four to six implants will save you thousands of dollars.

The dense bone found in the front part of the jaw offers an ideal place to support the implants and the approach of placing the other two implants at an angle helps avoid the sinus cavities and the nerve canal. When finished, you have new teeth that do not need to be removed, like traditional dentures. With only four implants, the procedure also reduces any discomfort you might experience. We will place a prototype bridge that can be used like normal teeth until the permanent bridge is installed.

The All-on-4 dental implant is comprised from multiple components. The implant posts are made from titanium because it has been found to deliver the best results when fusing with human bone. The implanted posts replicate the roots of your natural teeth as the bone and posts integrate together. There are abutments or extensions that reach the surface and then the final artificial crown.


5 star

My family has been seeing Dr. White through more than a decade of teeth cleanings, tooth injuries, teeth grinding, cavities, caps, root canal... you name it. The office is 30 minutes away but we wouldn't consider another dentist office. It's not just that Dr. White is a great professional, it's that he and his family run a great office. Scheduling, insurance, hygienists, hours -- everything about interacting with them is first rate.Everybody is knowledgeable, thorough, and kind. They take major insurance, and have even given me advice on which options to select. ...and Dr. White is a big Nats fan, which is a bonus in my book any day.

Proper Aftercare for You All on Four Dental Implants

Research has proven that placing the implants immediately after tooth extraction can indeed improve the outcomes of the procedure. INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA has seen that patients can resume their normal diet in just six weeks after the implants are placed. The more closely you follow our after-care instructions, the better your results will be.

Following any of the more invasive appointments, eating softer foods will help keep you comfortable. Once the healing process has started, you can slowly introduce harder and more abrasive foods. Once INSPIRE DENTAL OF ALEXANDRIA has completed your All-on-4 procedure, and you are fully healed, you will need to continue your daily good oral hygiene practices at home to properly maintain your teeth and your jaw to prevent unnecessary oral health risks.
