All-on-4 Dental Implants Benefits

All-on-4 Dental Implants Benefits

Introduction: All-on-4 dental implants have revolutionised the field of restorative dentistry, offering a transformative solution for those facing significant tooth loss or dental challenges. Let’s delve into the remarkable benefits that make All-on-4 implants a popular choice for patients seeking a permanent and effective dental restoration.

  1. Comprehensive Tooth Replacement: All-on-4 provides a full set of functional teeth on just four strategically placed implants per arch. This comprehensive tooth replacement ensures improved aesthetics, function, and confidence.

  2. Stability and Strength: The implant placement technique maximizes the use of available bone, enhancing stability. With the implants securely anchored, patients experience improved biting force, allowing them to enjoy a varied and nutritious diet.

  3. Quick and Efficient Procedure: All-on-4 offers a streamlined treatment process. In many cases, the implants can be placed and a temporary restoration attached in a single appointment, minimising downtime for patients.

  4. Minimally Invasive: The minimally invasive nature of All-on-4 reduces the need for extensive surgeries and bone grafts. This makes the procedure more accessible to a broader range of patients and shortens the recovery period.

  5. Natural Look and Feel: All-on-4 implants are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. The customised restorations are carefully crafted to match the shape and color of existing teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance.

  6. Preservation of Facial Structure: Tooth loss can lead to changes in facial structure. All-on-4 helps preserve bone and facial aesthetics by preventing the deterioration of the jawbone, maintaining a youthful and natural appearance.

  7. Enhanced Confidence and Quality of Life: Restoring a full set of teeth with All-on-4 has a profound impact on self-esteem and confidence. Patients can speak, eat, and smile with confidence, significantly improving their overall quality of life.

What Are the Benefits and Drawbacks of All-on-4 Implants?

With All-on-4 implant surgery, our patients regain confidence in their appearance, participate in social gatherings and smile in family photos.

All on 4 dental implants have many advantages, including:

  • With just one surgery, you can repair your whole set of missing teeth in just one day.
  • The implants are permanently fixed to your mouth and will not loosen or move.
  • Just four implants are used to replace the entire set of teeth.
  • All-on-4 implants are less costly than removing each tooth separately.
  • Bone grafting isn’t usually needed.

All-on-4 implants are an excellent choice for people of all ages who have lost their entire upper or lower jaw of teeth, and our patients are delighted with their performance. However, you and your dentist should discuss each step of the all on 4 implants procedure to ensure that these implants are the best choice for you.

The following are some potential cons of All-on-4 implants:

  • Some patients don’t have enough jaw bone mass to support implants (bone grafting is required to increase jaw bone mass in about 10% of patients)
  • All on 4 dental implants are the most expensive teeth replacement option (in particular Zirconia prosthesis, which lasts the longest and are highly recommended for that reason)
  • With any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. It is important to seek a second opinion from qualified healthcare professionals before proceeding with any surgical treatment.

How long does All-on-4 Dental Implant Therapy take to recover from?

The all-on-4 dental implant treatment has a very short recovery period. To reduce swelling, we usually suggest taking a few days off.

You can eat solid foods immediately, but soft foods are recommended first to enable the implants to integrate properly. The team will check in with you one week and two weeks after surgery to ensure your recovery. A final set of prosthetic teeth will be fabricated six months after the initial surgery. This final collection of teeth is even more durable than same-day teeth and allows for even more aesthetic sophistication.

Who is a successful candidate for All-on-4 dental implant treatment?

For patients with missing or unusable teeth in the upper or lower jaw, the All-on-4 dental implant technique is an excellent choice. The treatment is appropriate for patients who are either wearing dentures or who are about to lose their teeth. If you are in good health, there is no upper age limit for the All-on-4 operation. The treatment is suitable for those who want to maintain an active lifestyle without the constraints of dentures. read more on our blog How are All-on-4 Dental Implants different from dentures?

What are some of the advantages of All-on-4 dental implants?

dvantages of All-on-4 implants

Compared to conventional dentures, all-on-4 dental implants have several advantages.

So, if you’re tired of losing your dentures, avoiding certain foods, or coping with the humiliation of making your dentures fall out, All-on-4 dental implants are the long-term solution you’ve been waiting for!

Here are some of the advantages of the All-on-4 procedure:

Unlike dentures, which appear to move around, fall loose, and obstruct speech, the all-on-4 dental implant technique results in a stable, non-moving bite surface.

Little downtime – Compared to conventional dental implant care procedures, the All-on-4 dental implant procedure with teeth attached in one day allows for a quicker return to an active lifestyle.

Aesthetically, terminal teeth are not always as appealing as you would like. You have the choice of fully redesigning your smile with new teeth on dental implants. The size, shape, colour, and location of your teeth can all be changed to give you a smile you’ve never had before!

The All-on-4 dental implant treatment helps to protect residual jaw bone from further damage by relieving pressure from a removable denture and filling the jaw bone with a stronger bite. The jaw bone can actually increase in density by removing the pressure from a removable denture and loading it with a stronger bite.

The treatment choices can be overwhelming if you’ve been told you’ll lose your teeth. You may be hesitant to wear removable dentures. If you still wear dentures, you might be experiencing problems as a result of the drawbacks of traditional dentures. Denture wearers and those on the brink of losing their teeth now have hope, thanks to advancements in dental implant technology.

Your dental implants can be mounted and corrected teeth attached in just one day. These set teeth are non-removable and ready to use right away. This technique, also known as All-on-4, can be performed if you have no teeth or a few remaining teeth.

All-on-4 dental implants could be the answer for you if you want fixed esthetic teeth and a new smile in just one day. My Implant Dentist has been offering All-on-4 dental implants in Brisbane & Perth for more than a decade, and we have a long list of happy clients.

I was at a really low point in my life, had an accident 2 years ago which broke 3 of my teeth and a bridge in between my 2 front top teeth. From that moment I became extremely conscious of going out,socialising and found my self withdrawn and depressed as I didn't know what to do.Then a friend told me about My Implant Dentist. I plucked up the courage and went for my first consultation at Mindarie Quinns dental practice with Dr Zaheer who explained all my options and advised all on 4 top and bottom.Not only Dr Zaheer but all the staff and doctors at both Mindarie and South Perth were amazing and extremely professional and made the whole process seemless.Having the treatment has given me back confidence and enabled me to socalise and do things with my family and friends that I couldn't do before.I would like to thank Dr Zaheer and all the team at My Implant Dentist for everything they have done for me and recommended them to everyone I speak to.I just can't stop smiling!!!

From the moment I walked in the door My Implant dentist were very caring and professional. As a dental nurse myself I knew I would be a very hard case as other specialists said they could not help me. After my first consultation with Dr Kent he was confident that he could help me and I was provided with a clear plan for my top and bottom all on four procedure. My new teeth are perfect and so natural looking. He has made the impossible possible for me. I can smile and eat the foods I love again and this has changed my life. Thank you so much to all staff and especially Dr Kent Tan who I can say is the best implant dentist in Perth.

I picked up”Moorooka Dental Care” contact details from the web. I rang for a few questions and the happy voice of Frances had calmed my anxiety down quickly!Dr Kadwa greeted me from the front bench, took me in for the X-ray, dental assessment, carefully explaining the procedure, answered my questions and quoted for the works. He offered to breakdown work items to suit with my needs. The quote was surprisingly very compatible with my previous quote from overseas. (I know I am going to have my dental treatment in the safe zone, most medical advances in Australia).The implant work went smoothly, so smooth that the team had to remind me “Done!”, well beyond my imagination.When he saw me off with the aftercare instructions, I could feel his professional manners with caring characters. I know he has done a few thousand implants but I still received the care of his first. Thanks Zaheer!I requested X-ray images, Fatimatu responded promptly with friendly chatting.I also would like to thank Dr Linh Trần who was in the operation team at the treatment and follow up cares.

Moorooka dental have been a pleasure to deal with. I did a bit of research into dental implants and most companies had hidden fees. I booked a consult and was contacted within a few hrs to get me in and get the ball rolling. I choose to go with he implants using my super. They helped me to do all the paperwork to release the money. Definitely a good dental clinic.
