What Are All-on-4 Implants?
Also called All-on-4 dentures, these implants are permanent dentures that our dentists attach to your jawbone. They look and feel like your natural teeth. Whether you’ve lost teeth from age, gum disease, decay, or trauma, the All-on-4 system can give you a permanent, slip-free smile.
How Much Does the All-on-4 Procedure Cost?
The All-on-4 dental implants cost varies depending on your specific needs. Since it doesn’t require as many implants as traditional implants, the procedure is less invasive and less expensive. Ask our dentists for an All-on-4 price estimate when you come in for your consultation.
How Does the All-on-4 System Work?
For All-on-4 implants, one of our dentists will permanently attach a full denture or bridge with four dental implants to your upper or lower jaw. We lightly sedate you at the beginning of the All-on-4 procedure to insert two posts each into the front and back of your jawbone. Our dentists tilt the rear posts so that they have a deep, secure position, which reduces the need for bone grafting.
The posts that we use for All-on-4 treatment are titanium and compatible with bone to accelerate the healing process. While the post sites heal, we’ll give you a temporary denture to use. Afterward, you’ll visit our dentists again to have your customized All-on-4 implants permanently attached to the posts. Sometimes, though, we can permanently attach the implants in a single day.
What Should You Know About All-on-4 Before and After?
Our dentists want to prepare you for what to do before and after your treatment. Beforehand, we’ll conduct a full assessment of your mouth and address any concerns. After inserting the posts, our dentists will give you instructions to avoid All on 4 dental implants problems. Then, you can follow normal dental hygiene practices after we attach your permanent dentures. Talk to our dentists about improving your oral care at home.
How Do All-on-4 Implants and Traditional Implants Differ?
Traditional implants require up to 10 implants on a single arch. All-on-4 dental implants only use four implants per arch. Another one of the main All-on-4 benefits is that it removes the need for invasive bone grafting surgery and reduces recovery time compared to traditional implants.
All-on-4 Implants vs Dentures: What Is the Difference?
Instability is a problem with traditional dentures because they sit on your gums and are removable. The adhesive that holds them in place can also be messy. Since All-on-4 dentures are attached to posts in your jawbone, they’re stable and can help retain the shape of your jaw.
