All-on-4 is a dental restoration that has revolutionized the way oral surgeons and dentists think of replacing teeth. Dentures are unsecured devices with very limited success. Somertimes, dentures are painful, inconvenient, and unstable. Those dentures can make chewing food uncomfortable, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with All-on-4.
The All-on-4 treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by at least four dental implants. With fewer implants needed, overall treatment time and cost is minimized. The unique All-on-4 solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will placed the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
All-on-4 offers you many advantages:
- A cost-effective solution. Your new replacement teeth require only four implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, typically making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
- Scientifically proven and documented. All-on-4 is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies over a decade with favorable results.
