What is the All-On-4 Dental Implant Process?
The All-On-4 dental process is a state-of-the-art technology treatment concept that allows certified dental professionals to quickly extract any teeth remaining in the patient’s mouth and replace them with a complete set of implanted, non-removable bridges that mimic your natural teeth, so they look and feel like real teeth. With the advancements in dental implant technology, these bridges don’t require bone grafting in most cases, unlike older implant techniques, meaning your recovery time is significantly shorter as is the implant procedure itself. The All-On-4 Total Smile treatment can provide patients with a full smile in a single day. It offers a permanent solution to replacing all or some of your teeth in one visit, with natural looking and feeling teeth. The name All-On-4 refers to the technique of implanting four posts per natural-looking arch to the patient’s existing bone in the jaw structure. The placement of these posts is planned by using a full mouth scan to determine the best placement for the implants to provide the stability needed within the existing bone structure of the jaw. Using only four implants means a less expensive treatment plan as well as a quicker recovery after the treatment.
What are the benefits of the All-On-4 Dental Implant Process?
There are many benefits of the All-On-4 Total Smile dental implant process. The procedure is far less invasive than previous dental implant methods as it only requires four dental implants per non-removable bridge arch. Using only four implant posts gives the dentist the flexibility to strategically place the posts in the jawbone where there is an adequate amount of existing bone structure to avoid having to use bone grafts, while maintaining the stability needed for the permanent bridge. This helps reduce the overall cost of the procedure as the surgical work required is significantly smaller, as well as the amount of time required to perform the procedure. It also means less recovery time for the patient as they only have four implants that are rooted into existing bone, so there is no additional recovery time needed from bone grafts. The All-On-4 procedure can also be completed in a single day, meaning patients can go into the office with their old teeth and walk out with a whole new smile. The dental implants will follow your natural bone structure so your new smile will look and feel natural. This also means your new teeth will work as well as natural teeth, so will be very effective at chewing all types of food without having to worry about your teeth falling out.
What is the cost of All-On-4 Dental Implants?
The cost for All-On-4 dental implants will vary based on a number of factors. The most significant determining factor will be the extent of the work being completed, including how many teeth are being replaced and how many, if any, existing teeth need to be removed to complete the treatment. It will also depend on how much of the mouth is being done, if it is the full top and bottom arches being replaced or just one. The cost will also increase if any bone grafts need to be completed as part of the procedure or if the dentist is able to affix the implants to the existing jawbone. Following your consultation with Dr. Cory you will get a full breakdown of the costs for your unique treatment plan that will include any extractions needed, IV sedation and removal for any infected gum or bone. The cost can run anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000 depending on if one or two arches are being replaced and all of the other factors mentioned. Most dental implant procedures are considered cosmetic and therefore are not typically covered by dental insurance. It is best to check with your insurance company to see what your coverage allows. Some companies may cover a portion for cosmetic procedures, but most will not. If dental implants are required as the result of an accident or some other form of trauma that caused you to lose a portion of your teeth, you have a higher chance of a portion of the implant treatment being covered. Again, your individual insurance company can let you know the exact details of your coverage plan based on your plan as well as the reason for the procedure.
