What is the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure?

For patients who do not want to deal with the pain of dentures, All-on-4 Dental Implant Treatment is a comprehensive teeth replacement option. The All-on-4 dental implant procedure involves placing dental anchors in the mouth, which are then attached to custom-made prosthetic teeth. This enables a permanent, customized smile to be achieved in just one day, boosting morale and freedom. At My Implant Dentist, the all-on-4 dental implant procedure is completed on-site.

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

With All-on-4 implant surgery, several people regain confidence in their appearance. The implants have many advantages that enable patients to enjoy a lifetime smile, including:

  • With just one surgery, you can repair your whole collection of missing teeth in just one day.
  • Like dentures, the implants are permanently fixed to your mouth and will not loosen or move.
  • Just four implants are used to replace the entire collection 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 collection of teeth, and the majority of patients are delighted with their performance. However, you and your dentist should discuss each step of the procedure to ensure that these implants are the best choice for you.

The following are some potential drawbacks you should consider before choosing All-on-4 implants:

  • You’ll need to have a high level of bone available to hold the implants in place.
  • You won’t be able to test how the teeth feel or look before your procedure.
  • The implants cannot be placed in the mouth’s molar area, where you have the greatest bite force.

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

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

For patients who have many or all of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw missing or unusable, 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.

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

Compared to conventional dentures, all-on-4 dental implants have a number of 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, color, 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.

If you’ve been told you’re going to lose your teeth, the treatment choices can be overwhelming. You may be hesitant to wear dentures that are removable. 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 implant solutions for more than a decade, and we have a long list of happy clients.
