All-On-Four An Overview
All-On-Four® is a solution for replacing a full arch of missing teeth. For many patients, the All-On-Four method can allow Dr. Datta to replace missing teeth in just a single visit to our Reston, VA area dentist office. All-On-Four is designed to replace teeth with as few as four strategically placed dental implants. Using comprehensive pre-treatment planning and the precise placement of several small implants, All-On-four is a more viable solution than traditional implants for patients with compromised bone structure. The smaller implants can be placed at angles in areas of healthy bone to stimulate bone growth and stabilize a denture.
Dr. Datta Malyavantham is a general dentist with advanced training in implant dentistry. Ridgetop Dental offers full dental implant services under one roof for consistent and convenient care.
All-On-Four is made possible through the use of 3-D digital imaging and a thorough approach to your pre-treatment planning. We use CT scans, digital x-rays, and 3-D digital imaging to create a detailed “blueprint” for the All-On-Four procedure. This implant technique allows your dentist to extract necessary teeth, place implants, and secure a temporary restoration all in one day.
At the completion of the procedure, you will leave with a fully functional smile using a temporary denture. This is to allow the soft tissues to heal after placing the implants while still providing a new smile. Over the next couple of months, your gums and soft tissues will heal and adjust to the new denture. After this period of healing, a new set of dental impressions will be taken and used to create a final cosmetic denture that will serve as your permanent new smile.
The staff, dental hygienists, and doctors are friendly, thorough, and professional. The office has a relaxed spa-like setting and a view of a pond from the dentist chairs.Lauren

All-On-Four What to Expect
Ridgetop Dental will handle all phases of your All-On-four ® treatment process. Our staff will detail all steps before surgery and take the time to answer your questions, so you are fully informed of what the All-On-Four procedure entails. Typically All-On-Four is completed in three phases.
Phase 1: Treatment Planning
Treatment planning is the foundation of a successful ALl-On-Four treatment. Using high-resolution 3-D imaging, Dr. Datta analyzes the health and dentistry of the jaw bone. Strategic placement of implants optimizes healthy bone tissue in patients who may have some degradation. For some patients All-On-Four eliminates the need for bone grafting, reducing downtime and speeding up the process of replacing your missing teeth.
Phase 2: Surgical Implant
All-On-Four allows your implant dentist to extract any needed teeth, place implants and fit a temporary restoration all in one visit to our Reston, VA dentist office. Dr. Datta will surgically place the implants according to your detailed treatment plan. A temporary restoration will be fit on the same day to wear while the implants heal. Dental implants typically take 3-5 months to fully integrate with the jaw creating a stable bond used to support your final restoration.
Phase 3: Final Restoration
Once the implants fully heal, Dr. Datta will begin designing the final restoration. We use high-quality dental materials and 3-D digital images to create a natural, functional, and beautiful smile that will enhance your appearance.
