4M Dental Implants

What are 4M Dental Implants?

Your smile is your calling card, your first impression, a feature that sets you apart. People you meet remember your smile—good or bad.

If your smile isn’t what you want it to be, through an accident, or genes, or poor dental care, and if you’ve done a little research, you’ve probably discovered most people—dentists and patients alike—think no other option looks, feels, and functions more like real teeth than 4M Dental Implants.

The 4M Dental Implant procedure is the gold standard of dental implants. It’s a highly specialized, high-end dental implant solution for missing or diseased teeth. 4M solves the expensive and time consuming problem of replacing each missing tooth with a single implant. Using four strategically placed implants, Dr. Sean Mohtashami will replace an entire arch of teeth with the 4M Dental Implant procedure.

You will eat without pain. You’ll be able to taste all your favorite foods. You will laugh unembarrassed, speak confidently, and finally stop thinking about your teeth all the time.

Gone are the days of cavities. Simply maintain your normal oral hygiene routine and dentist visits and your implants can last a lifetime.

By taking into account your lifestyle, your personality, the shape of your face, your bite, and the way you smile, Dr. Sean plans your 4M Implants with your quality of life in mind.

The necessity of an experienced 4M Dental Implant specialist is paramount, and Dr. Sean has successfully placed 4M Dental Implants for over 20 years, taking on the most complex of cases. He has the skill to not only design a beautiful, personalized smile for you, but the experience to know when someone isn’t a good candidate and suggest an alternative treatment. Dr. Sean has your best interest at heart.

4M Dental Implant treatment can replace an entire row (arch) of top teeth or bottom teeth with as few a four implants, giving same day results.

4M is the replacement of teeth for severely compromised teeth. The teeth you receive with a 4M treatment are called a prosthesis and sometimes denture. A traditional denture is held in place by natural suction, supported by soft tissue, covers much of your palette, and are removable, whereas a 4M prosthesis is secured to your jawbone with fixed implants, doesn’t cover any of your palette, and are permanent, only removable by your dentist.

Dentures vs Dental Implants

About Dentures

You used to have a great smile and you want it back. Dentures are the obvious choice, they’re familiar, they’ve been around for centuries, and you’ve known family members who’ve had them, but you’ve been hearing a lot about dental implants lately and are curious what the differences are between dentures and dental implants.

If you’re embarrassed about your lack of teeth, dentures will restore your smile. Dentures are dental prosthetics that sit on top of your gums to mimic natural teeth and no surgery is required.

The up front costs for dentures are less than those of implants, but implants can last a lifetime, whereas dentures will need replacing, relining, maintenance, and adhesives. Over time, these costs add up.

Dentures aren’t anchored to your jaw bone the way implants are. Without a tooth root (natural or an implant) in your jaw, you’ll lose bone density and with that your facial structure, which leaves you with an older appearance.

Maintenance for dentures is more involved. Everyday they need to be removed, scrubbed, and soaked overnight. They have a tendency to slip out of place, especially the lower denture, so adhesives need to be used and reapplied throughout the day.

An unfortunate consequence of repeated removal is that they are sometimes misplaced, or dropped and broken. Replacing dentures may happen more often than you expect.


  • Dentures are familiar, they’ve been used for centuries.

  • Restore your smile.

  • Less expensive up front.

  • No surgery needed.

  • The process for receiving dentures is usually quicker than that of implants.

  • Some patients prefer being able to take them out to clean.

  • Dentures are bulky.

  • Tend to slide in your mouth.

  • They tend to rub on gums, which can be uncomfortable.

  • Often adhesives are needed to keep denture in place.

  • It must be removed every night and cleaned.

  • Must avoid certain foods.

  • They affect your ability to taste foods.

  • They will need replacing or relining over the course of their lifetime – this is where the costs start to add up!

Dentures vs Dental Implants

About Dental Implants

Like dentures, implants will restore your smile, however, the benefits don’t just stop there.

4M’s are the most natural looking replacement for teeth. Not only do they look real, but they feel and function like real teeth too.

Implants are screwed into your jaw so they’re permanent. You don’t need to concern yourself with adhesives because they won’t slip when you’re eating and they won’t slide out of place when you’re talking.

Enjoy eating again now that you have implants and taste the many delicious flavors food has to offer. 4M’s are durable without the extra bulk that covers up many tastebuds.

Living with decaying, painful teeth would certainly make chewing painful if not impossible.

Tooth decay has complications that go further than just your teeth, it has been linked to heart disease, respiratory infections, and diabetic complications to name a few.

Dental implants return your ability to chew without pain and help to improve your overall health.

Our jawbones stay healthy as long as there is a healthy root within them. When a tooth is lost, so is the root, and shortly thereafter bone will begin to wear away, and as bone is lost, so is your facial structure.

A weakened jaw line leaves one with an older, sunken look, but once it’s screwed into your jaw, the implant becomes a tooth root preserving the integrity of your bone and structure of your face.

Maintenance for 4M’s is minimal. Brush like you normally would, use your HydroFloss after you eat, and come in for all your scheduled cleanings.

With a full arch 4M procedure, we’ll include a HydroFloss for free.


  • Implants are the most natural looking option for replacing teeth.

  • Implants are permanent, comfortable, and provide a peace of mind.

  • They won’t slip or slide. No adhesives needed.

  • Eating all your favorite foods is possible and painless.

  • Implants are not bulky and don’t interfere with your ability to taste food.

  • Improve your overall health.

  • Implants replace your tooth roots preserving your jaw bone.

  • Minimal maintenance.


  • Require surgery and some time to heal.

  • Initial costs are more expensive.

  • Jawbone must be of a certain health and density for implants to anchor to.

  • Patients with a history of smoking or untreated diabetes have higher instances of implant failure.

Case Study:

What you’re looking at here is the lower jaw of a 4M Dental Implant patient at the one month post op.

  • Remaining teeth have been extracted.
  • Four titanium implants have been placed and screwed into the jaw bone.
  • Gums have been sewed up.
  • The silver you see outside the gums are the abutments. Abutments attach to the implants in the bone and then the prosthetic (the row of teeth) is attached to the abutments.
  • The patient is given  temporaries (temporary or healing teeth) to wear while gums and bone heal and the implant fuses with jaw.

After patient has healed and the implants are securely in the bone (about 4 to 6 months), the patient will return to receive finals. The finals are the permanent teeth which are attached to to the abutments.

4M makes it possible to secure an entire arch of teeth, sturdy and permanent, with only four implants.

Teeth in a Day with 4M

Walk in with your old teeth and walk out the same day with a brand new smile. With a 4M Dental Implant procedure you leave the same day with new teeth.

4M patients who are having at least one arch replaced will be fitted with ‘temporaries‘, high quality interim teeth that look much like how your final teeth, ‘f’inals’, will look. After you heal and the implant has stabilized in the bone, will you then receive your final teeth.

After any surgery some swelling is to be expected, were we to send you off with your finals, as swelling subsided they’d no longer fit snug, they’d be loose.

Most importantly, this step is to allow the implant time to integrate with the bone, in a process called osseointegration. The key to any successful dental implant procedure is a strong and sturdy anchoring of bone and implant.

A benefit to this step is that by living with your temporaries you’ll notice what you like or don’t like about your teeth – maybe it’s the color of the teeth, the shape of the teeth, or the bite. Whatever the case, you have ample time to made adjustments to them so that your finals are absolutely perfect.
