All-on-4® Dental Implant Treatment

Dental technologies have greatly advanced in the last decade, and All-on-4® dental implants are the result of such studies and development. Tooth decay and damaged teeth are very common conditions among elderly, but even younger adults are suffering with tooth loss and cavities today. Missing teeth not only cause discomfort but also lower morale and confidence. Dentures and bridges cause several hassles and, for many, it can also lead to embarrassment.

All-on-4® dental implants are an instant technique to help people with missing teeth get instant smile restoration. The existing teeth are replaced with a new set of prosthetic teeth that stands firmly on four implants that are fixed in the jawbone.

It replaces all the old teeth that are mostly damaged and decayed with a new set of teeth. It requires extensive experience to perform All-on-4® dental implants because it’s quite complicated and performed within a one day visit.

What Is All-on-4® Treatment?

All-on-4® treatment uses four titanium dental implants that are screwed and fixed into the jawbone. These titanium implants lay the foundation for replacement teeth and anchor the set of prosthetic teeth on the upper and lower jaw. The implants are fitted inside the jawbone through a minor surgery. A few short follow up visits are scheduled for adjustments, examination and assessment of progress.

This is a great alternative to dentures, which have their own limitations. Dentures have maintenance hassles, and can even fall out at any time, especially during meal hours. For many, dentures are even quite painful.

Technology Used in All-on-4® Dental Implants

  • Titanium Implants: Four titanium implants are used to create support for the complete set of permanent teeth. These implants are fitted with screws to get them firmly attached to the jaw, and all the teeth are then locked on these 4 implants. This is why the technique is known as all-on-four dental implants.
  • Support Abutments: The abutments are used to connect the prosthetic teeth to the implants and it also strengthens the support. It even allows the removal of the teeth when necessary. 
  • A set of Prosthetic Teeth: In All-on-four® dental implants, all the teeth are replaced with the bridge of new permanent teeth that is attached to the implant. The prosthetics are made up of either porcelain or zirconium. Both the materials are durable and strong. It shines bright and functions exactly like natural teeth.This latest technology is quick, effective and relatively the best teeth replacement solution. Unlike dentures, bridges and other such solutions, it results in a beautiful smile, requires hassle-free maintenance and functions like natural teeth. 

Advantages of All-on-4® Treatment

All-on-4® has numerous advantages to offer, especially when compared to traditional dental techniques.

  • Saves Loss of Bone: Traditional dentures lead to bone loss over time and cause wrinkles. Whereas, an All-on-4® system keeps stimulating the jaw bone which prevents the loss of bone in the roots.
  • Security: By using dental implants, the denture is fixed securely with no movement when eating and talking. You also can enjoy a night's sleep without worrying your denture will fall out.
  • It’s Permanent. It’s Forever: With proper dental hygiene maintenance and regular dental check-ups, All-on-4® can last a lifetime and you can have your beautiful smile forever. Very rarely does an All-on-Four prosthesis need to be replaced. 

The Cost of All-on-4® 

This is one of the most common questions related to all-on-4® dental implants. The cost of All-on-4® depends upon the oral health of the patient, sensitiveness of their gums, and jawbone structure.

These additional costs will also rise with the time, besides the discomfort and time consumed.
