Millions of Americans are missing all of their teeth, which makes it incredibly difficult to chew or smile with confidence.
All-on-4® dental implants placed at our Ridgewood, NJ, practice can fully restore smiles in a single appointment.
Here's why so many patients throughout Bergen County are taking advantage of All-on-4 treatment...
The Top 3 Benefits of All-on-4® Implants
Shorter Treatment Timeline
All-on-4 implants provide many of the same benefits as traditional implants in a shorter time. Because this technique makes the greatest use of your remaining bone tissue, most patients at our Ridgewood dental office can qualify for All-on-4 treatment without a bone graft. This can reduce your total treatment timeline by several months.
Immediately Improved Function
Missing teeth can affect your ability to eat your favorite foods and properly enunciate certain words. Dental implants restore your dental function by keeping your denture comfortable and securely in place at all times. By replacing teeth, All-on-4 dental implants also reduce your risk of jawbone recession, periodontal disease, and other oral health complications.
Instantly Higher Self-Confidence
In many cases, our dentists can send you home with a temporary denture on the same day of your surgery. This means you never have to go without teeth and can start to enjoy a complete, natural-looking smile soon after treatment. By replacing a full arch of teeth, you may also be able to speak, smile, and dine with confidence for many years to come.
What Makes the All-on-4 Technique so Groundbreaking?
All-on-4 is an advanced implant technique in which four implants are strategically placed in the jawbone to support a full denture in the upper or lower jaw. The technique was originally developed by Nobel Biocare® and is now one of the safest, most effective treatments for patients who are missing most or all of their teeth and lack sufficient bone tissue to support traditional dental implants.
During a traditional implant procedure, your dentist will place six to eight posts in your jawbone to support a full denture. To qualify for this procedure, you must have adequate bone tissue to support traditional implants. This may entail a prerequisite surgery such as a bone graft or sinus lift to ensure optimal results. In addition, this treatment requires that your gums fully recover after your implants are placed before your dentist can secure your customized restorations. This can take anywhere from three to six months.
However, All-on-4 requires just four strategically placed implants to support a full denture and can often eliminate the need for a bone graft if you have experienced moderate jaw atrophy. During your procedure, our team will place four posts at precise angles to evenly distribute the weight across your jawbone and alleviate stress on weaker areas. The two anterior posts will be carefully placed straight into the jawbone and the two posterior posts will be inserted at a 45-degree angle to make maximized use of available bone. In addition, the specialists at Ridgewood Dental Associates in Ridgewood, NJ, can attach temporary dentures immediately after surgery to help you achieve your desired results in a single appointment.
For the right patient, All-on-4 is a faster, safer, and more cost-effective method of replacing a full arch of teeth—in just one day!

Important Details About All-on-4® Implants
Ridgewood Dental Associates, serving Bergen County, offers the All-on-4® dental implant procedure to quickly restore the aesthetics, health and function of your smile.
At our practice in Ridgewood, NJ, patients have two possible treatment tracts to follow. The first option is to be a regular private patient. We also offer a second tract, which is to serve as a patient as part of our continuing education course (CE). For all of our patients, our experienced specialists use state-of-the-art technology to help provide a beautiful, radiant smile.
Private patients will undergo treatment as any typical dental implants patient would. You can schedule appointments and procedures at your own convenience and your treatment timeline is shorter than continuing education (CE) patients. Private patients can also experience additional benefits of privacy because you will only work individually with Dr. Jin Ha Joung and/or Dr. Mark Samani.
Continuing Education Course Patient
Patients who decide to participate as a CE course patient will receive a significant reduction in the cost of their treatment. The total cost is set at an all-inclusive price per arch of $25,000 or $28,000, depending on individual circumstances. This includes all extractions, surgical placement of four implants, the screw down temporary and the CAD/CAM bar supported final restoration. In return for this reduction, CE course patients will be part of a hands-on course with participating dentists observing. As a result, you will need to schedule your treatment approximately every four weeks to coincide with course dates. You will also be videotaped and photographed to effectively document your case for educational and PR purposes.
Our Patient Results
The All-on-4 technique provides a safe and effective alternative to traditional dental implants for patients missing most or all of their teeth.
Why Choose Ridgewood Dental Associates?
At our practice, we use the most advanced technology and latest dental techniques during our implant procedures. Our office is equipped with a dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) device, which creates a 3-D scan of your jaw to ensure precise implant placement. As your comfort is a top priority, we administer a local anesthetic during your procedure and can provide you with sedation options including intravenous (IV) conscious sedation or nitrous oxide depending upon your needs.

The Cost of All-on-4
Although All-on-4 is not the most affordable solution for full-arch tooth replacement, it is less expensive than supporting an entire denture with traditional dental implants. This is largely due to the fact that it requires less hardware. Like traditional implants, insurance plans rarely cover the cost of All-on-4. Under many plans, you can expect that at least a portion of the cost of the denture itself will qualify for some coverage. For any out-of-pocket expenses, our Ridgewood practice serving all of Bergen County can help you arrange financing.
