All-on-4 Dental Implants 

All-on-4 dental implants is a cutting-edge technology that replaces an entire jaw of teeth using only four dental implants per jaw. These strategically placed dental implants securely hold a denture of artificial teeth in place.

This procedure is often referred to as the “one-day smile” because you can have your All-on-4 dental implants in just one day.

What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 implants are prosthetic units that combine traditional dentures with the support of four dental implants. It is a restorative treatment designed to enhance the aesthetic appearance of your mouth and restore dental functions.

Benefits Of All-On-4 Dental Implants

All on 4 dental implants cost:

Compared to traditional methods that may require 8 to 10 dental implants for a full jaw restoration, All-on-4 dental implants replace a full jaw of teeth with only four implants. This significantly reduces the overall costs for you.

No Need for Bone Grafting:

Typically, after tooth loss, your jawbone may lose density and weaken. This can make immediate implant placement difficult, often necessitating bone grafting. Bone grafting involves transferring bone tissue from another part of your body to strengthen the jawbone, a process that takes 3 to 4 months to heal. However, All-On-4 dental implants eliminate the need for bone grafting through a unique inclined placement of rear implants. Instead of the last two implants going horizontally, they are installed at a 30° angle, allowing the jawbone to support the implant without requiring a bone graft.

Shorter Treatment Time:

The entire procedure, from implant placement to denture attachment, is typically completed in a single sitting.

Natural-Looking Results:

Unlike traditional dentures, All-on-4 dental implants provide a natural appearance and offer durable stability. They both look and feel natural.

The All-On-4 Dental Implants Procedure

The All-on-4 implants procedure involves a minor surgery in which your dentist carefully drills through your gums to access your jawbone. Next, the four implants are strategically placed: two are positioned at a 30° angle on each side of the jaw, and two are placed vertically near the front.

Following the implant placement, your dentist will immediately secure temporary dentures. Once your implants have fully healed over time, your dentist will then place your permanent dentures.

How Long Do All-On-4 Dental Implants Last?

Unlike traditional dentures, which tend to last only around 5 years, All-on-four dental implants can provide up to 15 years of longevity. This is because they are anchored securely in the jawbone, preventing bone tissue loss and ensuring that your artificial jaw remains stable over time.

Of course, proper care is essential for maximizing the lifespan of your All-on-four dental implants. Regular brushing, flossing, and diligent oral hygiene practices are necessary to maintain your oral health and the viability of your All-on-4 implants.
