All-On-4 Dental Implants

All on 4 Dental Implants:  What to expect, Cost, Pros & Cons.


Why do I need All on 4 Dental Implants?

How many people lose all of their teeth?

The rate of tooth loss is decreasing as more people become aware of dental hygiene and have easier access to dental care. However, 1 in 10 Americans between the ages of 50 and 64 has lost every tooth.

It can be frightful to consider total tooth loss and how it would influence your ability to eat and communicate in the future. Additionally, many patients do not find dentures to be a suitable alternative to replacement teeth.

The good news is that All-on-4's are a fantastic alternative for restoring lost teeth for edentulous patients (those without teeth).

Unsure of their nature? Let's learn everything there is to know about all-on-4 dental implants together.

What are all-on-four's?

Do you know what a typical dental implant is? To implant a titanium post during this surgery, a tiny hole is bored into the jawbone. Your native tooth root is substituted by this post.

You will be returned home to recover for a few months after the post has been placed. The dentist attaches an abutment to the post so that a custom-made crown can be connected once the tissue is ready.

It is the closest thing you can get to a natural replacement tooth. You only need to wash and floss your teeth as usual to take care of an implant because it is bonded to your jawbone and is therefore just as durable as a natural tooth.

When you lack several or all of your upper or lower teeth, all-on-4 implants are used. To replace the missing teeth, a whole bridge is built, although it is supported by just four implants. Comparatively speaking, this is much more affordable, gentler, and less painful than replacing each tooth separately.

Additionally, all-on-4 implants' four implant points are put at a 45-degree angle, as opposed to individual implants, which are inserted straight down into your jawbone. This is significant because shallower implants are made possible.

This indicates that less healthy jaw bone will be needed during the procedure to install the All on 4. To support the all-on-4 implant, the majority of people won't need a bone graft. Additionally, some people can have their new prosthetic teeth fitted during the same visit as the operation, saving them from having to wait months for the posts to heal and fuse with the jawbone. Depending on the condition of their mouth, some people may have to wait a few months for their wound to heal.

For whom are all-on-4's appropriate?

Most people who have lost teeth or whose teeth cannot be repaired are candidates for the treatment. Even individuals who have already lost bone density may be qualified. When there are no teeth to support the
jawbone, bone loss occurs spontaneously. Additionally, using the All on 4 will aid in halting further bone loss. This is excellent for your general oral health and will keep you looking younger.

That's reason to smile right there!

All-on-4's: Can they be taken out?

All-on-4's are not detachable, in contrast to partial or full dentures.

The implants fuse to your jawbone while you recover from the treatment, resulting in a permanent prosthesis that functions very identically to having real teeth in your mouth.

What advantages do all-on-4 dental implants offer?

The advantages of all-on-4 dental implants are clear from what we've already covered. But let's examine each one in more detail now.

Feel similar to real teeth

Dentures as a restorative solution for significant tooth loss have a major drawback in that they don't feel natural. Speech problems and discomfort when wearing this can result. Having an object in their mouth might even cause psychological distress in certain people.

While all-on-4 dental implants do add a small amount of mass that can first feel strange, most people quickly get used to it. Most people stop noticing the implant once the bone has healed and the first adjustment phase has ended.

It is without a doubt the dental prosthetic that feels closest to real teeth.

Appear to be genuine teeth

All-on-4 implants not only feel natural, but they also look natural. Dentures' fake teeth can be seen if you look at them closely enough. Additionally, it is quite easy to see that your teeth are false if your dentures move around or fall out when you are speaking or eating.

Dental implants will never come loose or slip. The same as your natural teeth, they are permanently cemented in place. They are expertly constructed to precisely mimic the missing teeth.

Single implants typically have the same shade as the rest of your teeth. However, you can have them made a few colors whiter if you're replacing all of them.

Finally, you may achieve the brilliant white smile of your dreams!

Aids in preventing bone loss

Have you ever observed how a person without teeth appears to be losing jawbone? Their entire face appears to be drooping, and the skin begins to sag, all of which might give them an aged appearance.

What causes this to occur?

To maintain its strength and health, the jawbone needs assistance. Without teeth to support it, the bone starts to dissolve, giving the appearance of a sunken face.

It's not always a smart idea to use dentures. While they occasionally help, poorly fitting dentures can actually hasten bone loss.

All-on-4's permanently solve this issue. You can maintain your face structure and appear more youthful if your mouth has a complete arch supporting your bone.

Simple to maintain

You should already be accustomed to cleaning and flossing your teeth twice a day. With an all-on-4 dental implant, all you have to do is that.

You shouldn't play around by taking out your dentures and soaking them overnight or by attempting to glue them in with adhesives. You're done after the implant procedure is finished and the bridge is mounted!

You might need to improve your oral hygiene routines or come see us more frequently, depending on what led to your edentulous condition in the first place.

The rest of the time, you can carry on with your life without thinking about your teeth.

Improved dental health

Some people might be reluctant to remove troublesome teeth in an effort to avoid getting dentures. Unfortunately, sometimes teeth cannot be saved. Usually, keeping damaged teeth in your mouth simply causes further issues.

All-on-4 dental implants, on the other hand, provide people the choice to remove their teeth and replace them with a more practical substitute. For the sake of overall dental health, it is far preferable to remove any teeth that are decaying, infected, or otherwise unhealthy.

Enjoy your favorite cuisine.

You can continue to eat the things you love with all-on-4 implants. Naturally, you'll want to proceed with caution. We don't advise eating a lot of popcorn, peanut brittle, or chomping ice cubes. But for a better life, you can eat things like apples, carrots, and other wholesome foods that will support your mouth and general health.

Quicker implant process

It's possible that you're accustomed to the assumption that dental implants take months to complete. You need to wait a few months for the posts to heal and fuse with the jawbone after the initial procedure to implant them. Although a temporary prosthetic may be used to cover the gap, you won't receive your permanent crown for several months.

Dealing with a temporary replacement can be bothersome, but the alternative is missing a few months' worth of teeth.

Both are not ideal.

Instead of needing to wait for the implants to heal, the all-on-4 implants are implanted at a 45-degree angle, providing appropriate support and structure. Some folks can receive their new teeth within a few days or during the same appointment visit.

What potential issues could arise with all-on-4 dental implants?

Of course, there are dangers associated with all surgical procedures. The potential issues with all-on-4 dental implants are listed below.

Infection danger

Infection risk is quite low. After the procedure, we will give you an antibiotic to help prevent infection, but it is not usually necessary.

The most important thing is to maintain good oral hygiene. Reduce the likelihood of infection by keeping your mouth clean by cleaning your teeth and using mouthwash to get rid of microorganisms.

Implant Failure

In about 5% of patients, the implants fail to merge with the bone. Anyone can experience implant failure, which is a common occurrence. It is frequently difficult to determine why the implant initially failed.

The good news is that the majority of patients can give it another shot and have a successful fusion the second time around.

By carefully adhering to your dentist's post-surgery care instructions, you can reduce the likelihood of failure. This entails eating soft foods, quitting smoking, which is bad for your teeth by nature, and taking good care of your
dental hygiene.

What are the prices of all-on-4 dental implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are less expensive than several individual implants when replacing all of your teeth. Less time is spent on downtime, less time is spent going to dentist appointments, and the work is less demanding. All
of these elements help to make the treatment less expensive overall.

But that doesn't imply that the procedure is inexpensive. Costs for all-on-4 dental implants range from $15,000 to $28,000, or an average of roughly $21,000 per tooth. Keep in mind that this amount does not account for additional expenses like extractions or the initial consultation.

What is the lifespan of all-on-4 dental implants?

Dental implants placed all-on-four are not detachable, but how long do they last? Are your implants going to eventually need to be removed and replaced while you're back in the dentist's chair?

The likelihood is that no.

Since all-on-4 dental implants are a recent treatment, their potential lifespan isn't fully understood. However, the majority of dental experts concur that a reasonable expectation is for them to endure 20 to 25 years. Depending on the patient's age, several claim they might possibly last for the rest of their lives.

It is not anticipated that the prosthesis that is mounted on the implants would last as long. Your prosthesis should last between 10 and 15 years if you take good care of it. The good news is that you won't need to undergo additional surgery in order to create and mount a new prosthesis on your current implants.

Maintaining good oral hygiene will help your implants and prosthetics last as long as feasible. Limit eating hard or sticky candy and food, brush and floss every day, go to the dentist for cleanings twice a year, wear a mouthguard while participating in contact sports, and refrain from using your teeth as a tool.

As always, schedule a dental visit and discuss your options with our dentist.

Your dental health and wellbeing are important to us. Although their level of expertise can differ substantially, the majority of dental facilities offer All On 4 Dentures.
