Dr. Roderick Garcia provides a variety of dental procedures for his patients which includes All on 4 implant restorations. All on 4 Implant restoration is a procedure that allows a full complement of teeth upper or lower or both to be secured on 4 implants. Four implants are strategically placed in whichever jaw is being restored then a temporary hybrid bridge is secured immediately over the newly placed implants or, a removable denture is placed over the new implants for 3-4 months while the bone heals around the implants.

After 3-4 months of healing a permanent modified hybrid bridge is precisely fabricated to be securely attached to the healed implants. The Hybrid Bridge is secured to the 4 implants via implant screws. This hybrid bridge can only be removed by the dentist. All on 4 restorations allow the patients to fully function as if they had their own teeth. All on 4 restorations not only renew the patient's confidence, but they also enhance the quality of life.
