All You Need to Know about All-on-4 Implants
If you’re living with missing teeth and are looking for ways to replace them, All-on-4® implants may be the answer for you. Find out all you need to know from the following four questions and answers.
- Are All-on-4 implants much different from old-fashioned dentures?
Yes! Even though All-on-4 implants are frequently referred to as All-on-4 dentures because they are a replacement for missing teeth, that’s where the similarities end. See, All-on-4 implants only require four dental implants, which is much fewer than conventional dentures. Yet All-on-4 dentures offer so many more advantages, such as:
- Permanent placement for maximum stability and security
- No chance of sliding or falling out with wear
- No need to be removed
- The look, feel, and function of natural teeth
- Support for your facial features
- Outstanding comfort because no pressure is placed on your gums
- The same simple care as natural teeth
- Much easier to eat, bite forcefully, and taste so you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods
- How do All-on-4 implants compare to traditional implants?
All-on-4 implants can replace your entire set of teeth with only four implants per arch, while traditional implants can require up to eight implants per arch. And since All-on-4 implants are embedded at an angle, they are more stable and secure in the jaw. Plus, All-on-4 implants do not demand the bone grafting typically needed with conventional implants. All of the advantages will save you time, pain, and money, so it’s easy to see how much more affordable All-on-4 dental implants can be.
- Is any special cleaning or care required?
Dental implants simply need the same care and cleaning as your natural teeth. This includes daily brushing and floss, along with regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
- Are there any additional costs with getting All-on-4 implants?
Similarly to all dental procedures, the final cost of treatment varies by individual case and location of the dentist. But because the treatment only requires one surgery and fewer implants, the treatment ultimately costs less than other replacement options. As a result, you will be pleasantly surprised by how affordable All-on-4 dental implants are overall.
