All-on-4 Dental Implants
Are missing teeth making it difficult for you to chew and speak clearly? Are you self-conscious about your smile?
The All-on-4® method allows patients previously ineligible for implants to restore the health, function, and look of their smiles.
Dr. Danny O’Keefe can perform the All-on-4 method at our Flowood, MS, office to give you a healthy, beautiful smile.

What Is the All-on-4 Method? A Restorative Dental Solution
The All-on-4 Method
All-on-4 dentures may look like traditional dentures, but instead of being supported by the gums they attach to four dental implants. This allows them to stay in place even when you eat hard or chewy foods. In many cases, All-on-4 dentures can be placed immediately after implant surgery.
Strategic Placement Creates Secure Results
Am I a Candidate For the All-on-4 Technique?
Extensive Tooth Loss
For this method, you need to replace most or all of your teeth in your upper or lower arch. Our dentist will always attempt to save your natural teeth. However, the All-on-4 method is a good treatment if your teeth need to be extracted due to decay or another oral health issue.
Good Overall Health
You need to be in good overall health before this dentistry procedure. Implant placement is a surgical process. Being in good health minimizes your risk of complications and increases your ability to heal.
Good Oral Health
You should be free from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or any other oral health issues. If needed, your dentist can provide dental treatments before implant surgery.
Adequate Jawbone Tissue
In the prolonged absence of tooth roots, the jaw will begin to atrophy. If you have experienced advanced jaw atrophy, you may still need a bone graft before your implant placement.
Committed to Oral Health
You need to be willing to maintain your dentures with excellent daily oral hygiene habits and regular dental visits. With proper care, your dentures can last for more than a decade and your implants can last a lifetime.

Anxious About Dental Treatment? Ask Us About Our Sedation Options
Fear of the dentist can keep many patients from receiving dental care. That is why our Flowood practice offers three forms of sedation dentistry: nitrous oxide, oral conscious, and IV sedation. Dr. O'Keefe will discuss these options with you at your consultation. Don't let the fear of dental work keep you from a healthy, beautiful smile.
Discomfort, swelling, bleeding, and bruising are all common side effects patients experience following dental implant surgery. Contact your dentist if you experience severe side effects or signs of infection.
Taking plenty of time to rest will aid the healing process. Avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting until you have been cleared by Dr. O'Keefe.
There will be a brief adjustment period for you to get comfortable with your new dentures. Most patients find they can speak and chew confidently within the first week.
You will need to maintain good oral hygiene. You should clean your dentures and any natural teeth twice per day. Routine dental exams at our Flowood practice will help maintain the health of your teeth, gums, and restorations.
