If you are considering dental implants to replace missing or failing teeth, you may have heard of All-on-4 dental implants. This popular solution for tooth loss is an excellent option when a patient needs an entirely new set of teeth. All-on-4 effectively replaces a top and/or bottom arch of teeth with as few as four implants to give patients a permanent and stable set of new teeth. While there are many options to choose from when it comes to replacing missing teeth, All-on-4 offers many advantages which you can find more information on below.
Unique Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants
Uses Fewer Dental Implants
One of the biggest advantages to choosing All-on-4 is right in the name. This procedure utilizes as few as four dental implants to support a prosthesis of teeth. The dental implants are strategically placed in areas of the jaw that have the most bone, so often bone grafting is not necessary.
New Teeth in One Day
With this All-on-4 treatment concept, patients can leave surgery with a fully functional and attractive set of new teeth. There is no need to wait until healing is finished as your doctor will be able to attach the new teeth to the newly placed dental implants during that very appointment. This drastically cuts down on visits to the dentist and offers convenience and the ability to enjoy your smile right away.
Permanence Within the Jaw
Choosing dental implants gives you a permanent solution to tooth loss. Unlike traditional dentures, you won’t need adhesives or pastes to keep your teeth in place as the prosthesis is firmly attached to the dental implants. And with your implants placed in strategic areas of the mouth, this solution can give you a strong hold that allows you to eat the foods you love again and not worry about your teeth at all.
A Lifetime of Smiles
With the All-on-4 dental implant treatment concept, you can expect your new smile to last you the rest of your life. By properly taking care of your oral health, dental implants, and new teeth, All-on-4 can last many years and often proves to be a more affordable solution in the long run than other tooth replacement options.
