Don’t let anyone else remove your teeth!
It is important to have Dr. Brueggen remove you teeth.
Preserving Tissue & Bone
Most dentists, when removing your teeth are not worried about preserving tissue and bone. Dr. Brueggen uses a special technique when removing your teeth to make sure that he preserves the integrity of the gum tissue and bone necessary to place your dental implants.
If another dentist removes your teeth, Dr. Brueggen may have to wait as long as 6 months while your jawbone heals, before he can place your implants.
All-on-4 Dental Implants Costs
Everyone’s treatment is unique, so your cost will depend on what is needed. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect.
Generally, treatment starts at $11,997 per jaw if you are in dentures and don’t need any teeth removed. This price includes the surgery, IV sedation, implants and your new teeth.
If you need light grafting and teeth removed the price will be around $16,000 per jaw.
*in some extreme cases, extra bone grafting or a sinus lift may be needed. Dr. Brueggen would discuss this with you at the consult.
Who should get the All-on-4 Procedure?
There’s no one answer for this, but here are some of the reasons people have come to see Dr. Brueggen for implants over the past 40 years.
Denture Wearers: Many denture wearers suffer with the inability to eat, painful dentures, embarrassing slippage and in the worst cases, so much bone loss that their dentures simply no longer stay in. People with broken teeth, loose teeth, or missing teeth are great candidates for All-on-4®. In one day, Dr. Brueggen can place implants and give you a brand new set of teeth.
I really like the idea of All-on-4®, but it looks painful
Most of the people that come see Dr. Brueggen are afraid of the dentist. He understands that and the bravery it takes to want to get a new smile. Each patient is treated with compassion and care. Dr. Brueggen’s experience is what makes this procedure pain free. He spent years becoming IV certified and uses a combination of different types of medication to keep you relaxed and pain free. IV sedation is much better than practices that give you pills as Dr. Brueggen can control the amount of sedative and pain suppressors you need throughout your surgery. Most patients awaken, not even aware that the surgery is complete.
What about after the surgery?
After the surgery you’ll be a bit numb. You’ll sleep through the night, the next morning you can eat breakfast. You may have some swelling, you’ll feel some soreness, but 95% of Dr. Brueggen’s patients are fine with an ibuprofen or two over the next couple days. Most return to work within 48 hours, some the next day, they are so excited to show off their new smile!

Here’s what to expect during your first visit with us.
When you arrive, a treatment coordinator will take your medical history. It’s important for Dr. Brueggen to know if you have diabetes, heart disease or any other health problems.
- Personalized Treatment Plan
Next, we will take a CT Scan. The CT Scan enables Dr. Brueggen to see the height, width, and density of your jawbone. He uses the CT Scan to determine where he will place the implants. He can also determine if you have any infection in the gum or jawbone.
Dr. Brueggen will examine your teeth, gums and perform an oral cancer examination. He’ll also check for infection.
- Discussion and Action Plan
After the exam, Dr. Brueggen will discuss your CT Scan with you. He’ll answer any questions you may have and help you decide what the best options are for you.

- 3 Weeks – Check-in & CT Scan
Dr. Brueggen will take another CT Scan to make sure the implants are integrating and that everything healed properly.
