What Are All On 4 Dental Implants?

The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is a surgical procedure that is a three-stage process. During the first stage, planning and consultation is crucial in determining your suitability for this treatment.

Appropriate tests and scans to assess your general health, and examine your jawbone for bone loss will be conducted. The surgery is fairly simple, and it usually takes only a few hours.

A 3D/CT Scan is taken and used as a template for your oral surgery, pinpointing the exact position of where the dental implants should be placed.

Impressions of your mouth are taken and sent to a laboratory where your new teeth are made and available for fitting on the day of your treatment.

Who Is A Good Candidate For All On 4 Implants?

The use of dental implants to replace just a single tooth has moved on considerably in recent years. The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is one of the newest innovations which replaces all of the teeth in a single arch on just four dental implants.
•  If you are a wearer of full dentures you may want to consider implants, particularly if they are uncomfortable or prone to moving
•  If you wear partial dentures but only have a few teeth left, the All-on-4 procedure is still an option, but you will need to have your existing teeth extracted.

This can often be carried out at the same time as you have dental implants inserted.

Once all of the planning is complete, a date will be scheduled for the procedure. It takes approximately two hours per jaw to insert the four implants and attach your new teeth. However, it could possibly take longer if you are having your teeth extracted as well.

The All On 4 Implant Procedure

We will then remove the teeth that could interfere with the restoration, then address any infected or diseased gum tissue.

After cleaning the area, we will then expose a tiny part of your jawbone and prepare the site for the implant. This will allow the implants to be precisely placed at an angle where they will not touch your sinus membrane (in the upper jaw) nor the inferior alveolar nerve (in the lower jaw).

We will suture the incisions, then place your temporary teeth.
This will leave you with a nice-looking smile the same day you enter our office.

All On 4 Recovery

As the technique is done in just one visit, you should be fully recovered within one to two weeks. You may experience minimal discomfort, swelling, or bleeding during the first day post-op, but they will gradually subside.

You may be prescribed antibiotics to protect the surgical site from infection and give you instructions on how to keep the area clean.

Patients Feel Secure With A New Smile

Your jawbone will naturally osseointegrate with the titanium roots in three to six months. When that happens, the temporary will be replaced with dental implants; a final restoration, permanent one; made just for you.

How Long Does All On 4 Last?

You may rely on the data that demonstrate an average lifespan of 20–25 years, even though the duration of the more recent All-on-4 implant procedure varies by patient and treatment. Ninety-five percent of patients reported implant success even after five years, and 94 percent reported success over 10 years, according to research published in the Journal of the American Dental Association. Implants have the ability to last a lifetime with proper maintenance.

If you are still undecided whether you should get All-on-4 dental implants to get back your smile, it is time you visited your dentist to find out if you are a good candidate. The All-on-4 dental procedure uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure that you can get the best results with your procedure and gain back your lost smile and confidence.
