What Is an All-on-4® Implant?
All-on-4 dental implants are used to hold permanent dentures in place, allowing them to serve as replacements for your natural teeth. These All-on-4 dentures are designed to look and function like your original teeth, which can allow you to bite, chew and talk with greater confidence during the activities you participate in every day. Our team will discuss the entire procedure with you and will provide you with complete information on which you can base your decision about your treatment regimen.
How Are All-on-4 Implants Placed?
All-on-4 implant procedures typically require a couple appointments with our office to produce the desired results. We use titanium posts for these implants to ensure the greatest longevity and the fastest healing process for you. The posts are placed at a precise 45-degree angle within your jaw to ensure that the implants provide maximum support for your denture once it has been put in place. Two front and two back implants will be placed to provide the support for your All-on-4 dentures when they are applied.
What Happens Before and After the Procedure?
During your initial consultation with an All-on-4 dentist, we will analyze the condition of your jawbone and your gums. This will give us a good idea of the preparations necessary for your All-on-4 treatment. We may also have to schedule extractions for broken or damaged teeth that must be removed before your implants can be placed and your dentures applied.
Another consideration for your All-on-4 before and after treatment plan is the fabrication of your dentures. These dental appliances will be designed to look and feel as close as possible to your own natural teeth.
Once your implants have been positioned in your jaw, you will likely require a period of time before your next appointment to make sure that these implants heal correctly in the jaw. Our dental team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your implants during this healing process.
After the dentures have been attached to your implants, you can usually brush your new artificial teeth and care for them as you would your natural teeth. These dental appliances are designed not to slip or fall out of place, allowing you to feel more confident and to avoid embarrassing accidents that could occur with traditional removable dentures.
How Much Will My All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of All-on-4 implants and dentures can be intimidating. At our dental office, we will work with you to determine the most cost-effective and practical options for your financial situation. We can work with your dental plan to ensure that as much of your cost is covered by these insurance policies as possible. Our dental office also offers payment options that may allow you to deal with the expense of your All-on-4 procedure more easily.
Is There a Big Difference Between All-on-4 Implants and Traditional Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants require only four carefully placed implants rather than the multiple sites required by other types of implant dentures. This can significantly cut down on the expense associated with these procedures. By working with our team of dental professionals, you can determine whether All-on-4 is an appropriate treatment choice for your needs and your budget.
How Are All-on-4 Dentures and Traditional Dentures Different?
Most traditional dentures are designed with a plate and teeth that stick to the gums using a dental adhesive. These dentures can be removed for cleaning or to reseat them for greater comfort. The All-on-4 system is designed to stay attached to your jaw permanently. This can help you to feel more confident and more relaxed when dining out, speaking in public and in many other social situations.
