What is All-in-4 Dental Implants?

The All-on-4 dental implant protocol is the most complex and technically demanding process in all of the implant dentistry. This isn’t a process you want to trust to someone who just “dabbles” in dental implants. In case you are contemplating this process, carefully assess the certification of your dentist. Are they an overall dentist or specialist?

Dental specialists like oral surgeons and Periodontists have taken up beyond the normal four years of dental school which all dentists choose to 4 years of additional full-time training. During this added training, Dr. Joseph Yang & Dr. Susan Nguyen not only got extensive expertise in dental implant surgery, but he also finished an anesthesia mini-residency, treated multiple medical emergencies, and mastered various facets of routine dentistry.

Are you aware that many general dentists who put dental implants received their dental implant “training” at weekend continuing education classes? The truth is, some dental implant continuing education plans “certify” a dentist to place dental implants after merely 16 hours of real training! Can you believe that?
