The Benefits of All-on-4
If you’ve suffered the loss of many of your teeth, then perhaps you have considered tooth restoration options like All-on-4® dental implants. If you’ve considered dental implants before but aren’t familiar with that implant, then perhaps you may be wondering if this type of implant is the right choice for you. After all, implants might be a great solution to tooth loss, but they require a significant investment in time and money. That’s not to mention the fact that you’ll have to undergo dental surgery to get the process done.
That’s why we’re here. In this post, we’re going to discuss a new type of dental implant, the All-on-4 dental implant, and the benefits of getting this implant over traditional dental implants. We hope this gives you all the information you need to decide to get dental implants for yourself to restore your smile.
The implants are permanent
If you’re worried about follow-up care, damage, or breaking your implants like dentures and some dental applications, you have nothing to worry about with these implants. Once you have them installed, they are permanently grafted to the jawbone and should never have to be replaced.
The implants are made from a titanium post or fixture and a prosthetic crown that is much stronger than a natural tooth. Most people never have to worry about maintenance or damage, and the implants are designed to last decades.
Whole mouth restoration with only four implants
That’s right; you can restore an entire mouth’s worth of teeth with just four implants. Some people are absolutely blown away by this! The way the process works, the four implants act as anchor points for a specially made denture set that is hooked to the implants and grafted into the jawbone. The four implants are placed at specific positions, and the denture fills the gap of the rest of the missing teeth providing a whole mouth tooth restoration solution.
The best part about this method is that only having four implants means that you won’t have to spend several hours at the dentist multiple times to have individual implants installed. For those that have suffered traumatic tooth loss and are missing all or most of their teeth, this represents a much safer and more effective tooth restoration option than choosing traditional implants that have to be installed one at a time for each missing tooth.
Less recovery time needed
When it comes to having dental surgery, most patients become concerned with the time it will take to recover from the procedure. There is a longer recovery time with standard implants as the number of implants increases. This means that restoring an entire mouth of missing teeth would require multiple surgeries and extensive recovery time between surgeries and before the final installation. Depending on the number of teeth you need, it could take over a year with traditional implants.
With the system of 4 implants, you won’t have to have multiple procedures, and the recovery time drops from weeks to just days. You can have the entire process complete from start to finish in as little as three months.
The cost is lower
Our final, and likely for many, most important benefit of the All-on-4 system is that it costs considerably less to restore your entire mouth than the cost of replacing each tooth with traditional implants. Not only does this mean that you can get the permanent tooth restoration you’ve been dreaming of, but you can do it without having to worry about breaking the bank.
This makes it so that more people than ever can have the option to select implants to correct their tooth loss. With an affordable option for permanent tooth loss, this means no more having to deal with dental bridges and dentures that constantly need repairs and adjustments, just one surgery, and you’ll enjoy years of strong, great-looking teeth.
