What are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
If you are beginning to lose teeth, the daunting question of getting dentures or dental implants may be looming over you! However, the decision between the two can be quite tricky. On the one hand, dentures are less invasive than dental implants, but they also require more upkeep and care on the daily. On the other hand, dental implants are a more permanent solution, but they involve a lengthy recovery period and invasive procedures. Luckily, there is now a solution that meets those two problems midway, namely, All-on-4 dental implants! We are pleased to offer this innovative and effective procedure to any of our patients at Beyond Smiles Dental & Implant Center seeking dentures or dental implants. Call us or schedule an appointment online!
What are All-on-4 dental implants, and how do they work?
All-on-4 dental implants refer to an implant procedure in which four dental implant screws support all the teeth on the bottom or top ridge. As such, All-on-4 dental implants differ from traditional dental implants in that the latter are typically designed to support only one tooth per implant. These dental implant screws are fixed and embedded into the patient’s jaw, which provides a firm support and platform for a set of replacement teeth. In general, two implants are placed vertically at the front of the jaw, while the other two implants are placed at an angle for more support in the molar region near the back of the jaw. That said, the exact placing of the implants will be decided upon by the oral surgeon after an in-depth examination and analysis of your jaw structure using digital imaging for a precise three-dimensional picture of your mouth.
What are the benefits of All-on-4 dental implants?
There are many benefits and advantages to opting for All-on-4 dental implants! Whereas traditional dental implant procedures require that the patient’s jawbone and gums completely heal from the surgery before placing the abutment and artificial tooth, All-on-4 dental implants use implant-supported dentures that can be used immediately after the procedure! Moreover, the posterior implants’ strategic placing and angle render it unnecessary to perform bone augmentation or sinus grafting, which expedites recovery time and lets you return to your daily routines in short order. The angular posterior implants utilize the maximum amount of available jawbone for the most natural look and feel, as your implants create a virtually seamless connection between the artificial tooth and jawbone, and to prevent bone loss and degradation. Other benefits of All-on-4 dental implants include the following:
- Easier care and hygiene: care for All-on-4 teeth is virtually the same as regular oral care habits, while also doing away with the need for adhesives.
- Permanent results
- Natural look and feel for greater self-confidence
- Shorter treatment and recovery time
- Lower costs than traditional implant options
How much do All-on-4 dental implants cost?
Compared with both up-front and long-term costs of traditional dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants are a much more affordable solution! Not only do they cost less initially, but they also require less maintenance and have fewer risk factors involved.
