Tooth loss is extremely common among adults, especially as we age. If you lost or damaged several teeth this procedure might be the best treatment for you. All on four dental implants are one of the most highly recommended alternatives to dentures because is of the most popular dental reconstructive methods. The All-On-4 procedure replaces all the teeth on the lower or upper arch with only four implants. As the name implies, it utilizes only 4 implants to replace all teeth, whereas traditional implants utilize anywhere from 5 to 8 implants in one arch. The angled placement of the posterior implants of the All-On-4 procedure allow for increased support by using the natural support of your bone. Also, traditional implants often require bone grafting. The All-On-4 Dental protocol requires no bone grafting for most patients, with a success rate that is equal to or better than traditional implants.
As opposed to dentures, All-On-4 Dental Implants are a permanent set of teeth that not only look, but also feel natural.
Other benefits include:
They are stable, allowing to speak clearly and laugh comfortably.
No more discomfort – they don’t press down on your gums like dentures do.
Allow you to taste and experience your food. No need to worry about slipping or falling out.
Implants stimulates the bone, thus preventing further bone deterioration.
No more gagging.
No more nightly removal and cleaning.
No more dealing with messy, sticky adhesives.
After the initial consultations, one or our certified and highly qualified maxillofacial surgeon will recommend the best procedures based on your personal dental diagnosis. In most cases, the All-On-4 are recommended for patients whose jawbone provides enough stability and strength to support a fixed dental bridge for lifetime. The All-on-6 procedure, as in name implies, it uses 6 dental implants and is recommended for patients that present a jawbone that can better support 6 implants but not sufficiently flawless for an All-On-4 solution.
Why All-On-4, 5, 6, or 8 might be right for you:
