What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are a popular treatment option for people who are missing all of their teeth in either the upper or lower jaw or who have teeth that are so badly broken down or decayed that they need to be extracted. It’s a type of implant-supported denture that uses four strategically placed implants to support a full arch of fixed (non-removable) replacement teeth

The All-on-4 implant system takes advantage of the patient’s existing bone structure, with the placement of the implants allowing for optimal support for the prosthetic teeth. Dentists or oral and maxillofacial surgeons often recommend this for patients who have limited jawbone density, as it allows them to receive implant-supported teeth with no additional bone grafting surgical procedures.

Benefits of All-On-4 Implants

Benefits of the All-on-4 implant system include:

  • They can replace an entire arch of teeth in just one day, allowing individuals to leave the dental office with a new smile the same day.
  • They look, feel, and function like natural teeth, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile proudly.
  • They also help preserve the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining a more youthful appearance.
  • Easier eating and increased comfort

Disadvantages of All-On-4

All-on-4 can be an excellent option for tooth replacement. However, there are some disadvantages to keep in mind:

  • All-on-4 dental implants are more expensive than traditional implants, and the cost can vary depending on the individual case.
  • They require a longer healing time compared to traditional dental implants.
  • There’s a higher risk of implant failure, as all four implants are required to support the full arch of replacement teeth.

How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Work?

After you’ve undergone a comprehensive dental exam and our dentist determines that dental implants are the best for you, we’ll start your smile journey! The All-on-4 dental implant surgery uses just four dental implants to support a full arch of teeth. It’s an innovative and effective dental restoration solution for people who have lost most or all of their teeth and want a permanent, long-lasting, and natural-looking solution to replace missing teeth.

The surgical procedure involves the secure placement of four dental implants in strategic locations in the jaw, where the bone density is most substantial. This provides the necessary support for an entire arch of teeth to be attached to the implant posts.

Who Needs All-On-4 Implants?

All-on-4 implants are a great option for a variety of patients with missing teeth, but they aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Good candidates for All-on-4 implants are:

  • Missing Most or All Teeth: This is the primary requirement, as All-on-4 implants are designed to support a full arch of replacement teeth.
  • Unsatisfactory Denture Wearers: If you have traditional dentures that slip, wobble, or cause discomfort, All-on-4 implants offer a stable and secure solution.
  • Adequate Jawbone Density (Usually): All-on-4 implants can sometimes be placed with minimal bone loss, unlike traditional implants that might require bone grafting first. A dentist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon will assess your jawbone’s suitability.
  • Good Overall Health: As with any surgery, being in good general health is important for optimal healing after dental implant placement.

All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs

On average, the cost of an All-on-4 dental implant procedure can range from $20,000 to $50,000 per arch. However, this cost can be lower than traditional implant placement, as fewer implants are required.

The cost of the All-on-4 dental implant treatment can vary depending on several factors, including the location of the dental practice, the experience of the dentist, the number of implants required, the treatment time, and the materials used.

Frequently Asked Questions

All-on-4 dental implants can last a lifetime when cared for properly. Patients should maintain a good oral hygiene routine, attend regular dental checkups and cleanings, and avoid habits that can damage the implants, such as smoking or biting hard objects.

The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is a surgery typically performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation, so patients shouldn’t feel any pain. Some may experience mild discomfort and swelling for a few days after implant surgery, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and cold compresses.

Yes. Since All-on-4 implants are designed to look and function like natural teeth, patients can eat and speak normally. However, it may take some time for patients to adjust to life with their new teeth, and speech therapy may be recommended in certain cases.

The All-on-4 procedure is often considered worth it for those who want a permanent solution to replace their missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which can slip and cause discomfort, All-on-4 implants are securely anchored in the bone and don’t require adhesives. They also offer greater stability and can improve your ability to speak and eat.
