All-on-Four is a revolutionary way to replace a full set of teeth, restoring your healthy and beautiful smile. It’s perfect for individuals who have a number of missing or broken teeth, but want to avoid the inconvenience and discomfort that tends to accompany removable dentures.
Restoring smiles. Renewing lives.
“Nothing brings me more joy than restoring my patients’ smiles and renewing their self-esteem with the All-on-Four procedure.”
Dr. Omid Barkhordar
Advanced age often accompanies tooth loss, which can create profound physical and psychological challenges. It can be immensely difficult to enjoy socializing and dining out when you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth or uncomfortable with the stability and function of your removable dentures.
When this occurs, Dr. Barkhordar commonly recommends All-on-Four as a permanent way to restore your healthy and fully functioning smile. He is an enormous fan of the procedure because he’s seen the incredible ways it has transformed the lives of his patients. Using only the highest-quality materials and specialized x-ray equipment, Dr. Barkhordar is able to create a flawless smile that will endure for years – so you can laugh, eat and lead your life with confidence once again.
“I’m so happy I chose Dr. Barkhordar for my All-on-Four dental implants. Not only was he kind and compassionate, but he gave me back the confident smile I thought I’d lost for good. I’ve never been happier – and I owe it all to the team at See Me Smile.”
How All-on-Four works
All-on-Four can replace a full set of teeth in just one day, making it the fastest and most comprehensive way to address tooth loss. With this procedure, your entire dental bridge is supported by just four dental implants, or tiny screws that fit inside the jawbone and provide a strong foundation for your new teeth. A customized crown is then attached to those screws, creating a fully functional and extremely realistic restoration.
What to expect during your All-on-Four procedure
Before your All-on-Four procedure begins, Dr. Barkhordar will have you visit our Santa Barbara office so we can evaluate your mouth and compose a treatment plan. During this meeting, we will collect detailed x-rays, photos and dental impressions. We will then create the dental implants out of titanium, because this material will fuse to your existing bone and create a strong foundation for your new teeth.
To begin your actual procedure, Dr. Barkhordar will administer anesthesia to ensure you’re completely asleep. He will then prepare your mouth for the dental implants, carefully extracting any remaining teeth and cleaning the damaged jaw and gum tissue. From there, he will insert your first two implants near the front of your jaw, because bone tissue in this area is less likely to atrophy. He will then place the final two implants near the back of your jaw at a 45-degree angle, to ensure optimal support. After placing the implants, he will carefully clean the area and close the incisions with sutures. Once you wake up, Dr. Barkhordar will attach your fixed teeth to your implants – creating an exquisite, natural-looking smile that will last for years.
In most cases, the recovery from the All-on-Four procedure is minimal. During the first few days, it’s important to rest and avoid exercise to allow yourself ample time to heal. You also want to stay hydrated, eat exclusively soft foods and apply an ice pack regularly to minimize swelling. For the first 24 hours, it’s completely normal to see some blood in your saliva, however it will subside very quickly. Within a few days, most of these side effects will disappear, and you’ll be free to enjoy your beautiful and functioning new teeth.
