Are you missing teeth and tired of dentures that slip and leave a mess but have been told you're not a good candidate for traditional dental implants? The All-on-4 dental implant technique may be the solution for you.
What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a type of full-mouth restoration procedure that involves the placement of four dental implants in each arch (upper and lower) of the mouth. These implants serve as anchors for a full set of replacement teeth, also known as a bridge or denture. The name "All-on-4" comes from the fact that only four implants are needed to support an entire arch of teeth, making it a more cost-effective and efficient solution compared to traditional dental implants.
Why All-on-4 Implants?
For those who have been told they don't qualify for dental implants for whatever reason, whether it be poor health or insufficient jawbone tissue, All-on-4 implants offer an alternative solution. Unlike traditional implants, which require a certain amount of jawbone density for successful placement and integration, All-on-4 implants use specialized angles to maximize the use of existing bone and minimize the need for bone grafting procedures.
Not only that, but the cost associated with All-on-4 implants is often much less than that of traditional implants since fewer implants are needed and there is less time spent in the dental chair. Additionally, All-on-4 implants can be placed and fully restored in just one day, allowing for a quicker recovery time and minimal disruption to daily life.
The All-on-4 implant procedure typically begins with a thorough examination and consultation with your dentist to ensure you're a suitable candidate. On the day of the surgery, the dentist administers local anesthesia for your comfort. Then, they strategically place the four implants in areas where your bone is densest. After the implants are in place, a temporary, fully functioning set of teeth is attached to the implants, providing immediate aesthetics and function. Over the next few months, your bone will naturally integrate with the implants, and once that process is complete, your dentist will replace the temporary set with your final, custom-made denture or bridge.
