    My wife and I had been going to a general dentist for many years. After having repeated problems with sensitive teeth we were referred to Dr. Akef, who diagnosed extensive bone loss around one of my teeth, something that should have been done earlier before it became so extensive. To remedy my bone loss Dr. Akef did bone graft, which make it possible to do dental implant. We are totally satisfied with all procedures performed. Thank you Dr. Akef.

    I am a retired medical doctor and have been a patient of doctor Akef for over 15 years. he has done a total of 6 implants for me on 3 different times over the years. Although I have been living in Los Angeles area for the past 9 years, I will drive to San Diego to see him for all of my dental problems and implant follow ups. I do the 5-6 hours round trip drives because I have a firm belief in his knowledge, expertise, and care. His office staff are wonderful. - Michael Fassihi, M.D.

    Dr. Akef promises and delivers. I had a missing back tooth for many years and did not even bother to try getting dental implants because I was told that there was not enough bone and that bone grafting was not an option for me. However, after receiving a Sinus Lift Surgery 6 months later an implant was placed successfully.

    Could not be happier. I am a whimp and cannot stand pain. Dr. Akef reassured me that the dental implant process would be not be very painful. Since I did not need any bone the process was completed in one day. I am very pleased and have recommended Dr. Akef to family members

All on 4 Dental Implants FAQs

How do All on 4 dental implants differ from traditional implants?

While traditional implants require six to eight implants per arch, All on 4 require only four implants per arch. These implants are placed at an angle. This provides stronger support for the implants by maximizing contact between the implants and your natural bone. All on 4 implants are also minimally invasive and use fewer implants, lessening recovery time compared to conventional implant methods.

How do All on 4 dental implants differ from dentures?

Dentures may be either fixed or removable and can cause discomfort due to slippage or changes in the contours of your mouth. All on 4 dental implants are a fixed solution, providing you with greater comfort and stability. All on 4 implants are a set of prosthetic teeth surgically placed into the gums and jawbone. Because of this, All on 4 implants look and feel like natural teeth and are cared for in much the same way. And because All on 4 implants are placed into the gum, they help to stimulate the gum tissue and bone better than dentures, which may lead to deterioration over time.

How long does it take to complete All on 4 dental implants?

When placing All on 4 dental implants, each arch takes approximately two and a half hours to complete. Once finished, a temporary dental bridge is placed so that you never go without a complete smile. The bone and gums are then given time to heal and bond with the implants. During this recovery time, your permanent replacement teeth are custom-made in a state-of-the-art laboratory. Once placed, you will have a full, healthy, and natural-looking smile to last for years.
