What are All on Four dental implants?
All-on-4 is an implant system that treats patients with missing teeth in a lower or upper arch. Treating all the teeth in a single arch saves time, reduces costs, and eliminates the need for multiple surgeries. All-on-4 only uses four dental implants to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, hence the name.
They provide functionality and look like natural teeth. They are placed in the jawbone, where they function like natural teeth by tapping into the bone’s natural biological processes using titanium posts. The posts are strategically placed to avoid areas with bone loss to provide the most support possible.
How much do All-on-4 Implants cost?
All-on-4 is one of the more affordable implants for patients who need a new arch of teeth. Depending on your situation, the price can range from $15,000 to $35,000 per arch.
It is one of the most efficient and affordable dental implant solutions for all patients. These implants can provide a confident smile for a lifetime with proper care, which is priceless.
Traditional Dental Implant Surgery vs. All-on-4
Traditional dental implant surgery requires routine surgery, usually requiring clinical visits over several months, and patients must take time away from work and other activities. In addition, the patient often wears temporary replacement teeth until all implants are placed and ready, taking several months after surgery.
All-on-4 dental implants require all four implants to be placed at once. This type of surgery is performed in only one visit, and patients can leave with all four implants in place. In addition, they can resume all normal activities immediately after the surgery, increasing the benefits to the patient.
With the latest dental technology, All-on-4 dental implants require less time in the dental office, and all four implants can be placed all at once, which reduces overall costs for the patient.
How are All-on-4 Implants placed?
During the consultation appointment, the dentist and oral surgeon will examine the bone density of the jawbone to ensure it is thick enough to support the implants. They will also take images and plan where they will place the implants. The back All-on-4 implants are placed at a 45-degree angle to provide maximum support for patients with low jawbone density.
The patient is given a mild sedative before surgery, and the implants are placed. Patients report little to no pain, and soon they will have a beautiful smile to show off.
Benefits of All-on-4 Implants for Missing Teeth
All-on-4 dental implants are an all-inclusive package—no need for multiple surgeries or extra time off work.
All-on-4 implants provide all the benefits of traditional dental implants, all in one surgery. In addition, they offer a secure fit and feel of natural teeth, all with a single surgery.
Because All-on-4 implants are placed at a 45-degree angle, many patients can avoid bone grafting before implant surgery.
Patients can get all of their missing teeth replaced all at once with All-on-4 implants. It is not necessary for them to wear temporary replacement teeth, either.
They provide patients with immediate function and chewing ability by having a similar look and durability to a natural tooth.
