The technique for total rehabilitation of the edentulous, known as the All-on-4® treatment concept, is a surgical and prosthetic medical procedure. It consists of the rehabilitation of the edentulous maxilla and mandible with fixed prosthesis by placing four implants in the anterior maxilla, where bone density is higher, allowing the highest success rate. The four implants support a fixed prosthesis with 12 to 14 teeth and it is placed immediately on the day of surgery.
Dental Implants by Dr Johnston. Dental implants are rapidly becoming the new stars of the dental industry. Dental implants preserve bone and are a long-lasting tooth replacement option in dentistry. Studies have shown a 97% success rate at 30 years after placement, meaning 97% of implants placed are still functioning 30 years down the road. No other restoration has that kind of success.
Dental implants feel and function just like a normal tooth. They replace both the root and crown portion of the tooth, so they do not rely on other teeth to support them.
Dental implants can be used to replace single and multiple teeth, as well as support dentures. When a tooth is lost, bone is continually lost over time in that area. This can create sunken areas in facial appearance where there is no longer bone to support your facial features, making patients appear older than they really are. This also weakens the jaw, putting it more risk for fracture later on. Dental implants can prevent this from happening.
Dental implants are the most natural looking tooth replacement dentistry has to offer. Benefits include:
Improved confidence and self-esteem
Improved chewing ability
Dental implants provide a strong foundation for biting and chewing and can rejuvenate your smile, giving you the confidence you need and deserve.
Dental Implant Cost
The cost of dental implants depends on several factors, including how many dental implants you need. However, the benefits of implants can be invaluable, as they can prevent bone loss and the shifting of existing teeth, which can lead to expensive dental issues down the road.

Dental Implants Consultation
The first step in the dental implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by Dr Johnston and a team of specially trained and experienced in restorative dentistry. This team approach provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for
Dental implant Procedure
Next, the tooth root implant, which is a small post made of titanium, is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process can take from six to 12 weeks.
Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post — called an abutment — is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. To make the new tooth or teeth, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). The new tooth or teeth is based on this model. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.
Instead of one or more individual crowns, some patients may have attachments placed on the implant that retain and support a removable denture.
Dr Johnston will match the color of the new teeth to your natural teeth. Because the implant is secured within the jawbone, the replacement teeth look, feel, and function just like your own natural teeth.
How Do I Care for Dental Implants?
Dental implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups.
