What Are All-On-4 Dental Implants?
All-On-4 dental implants offer a comprehensive solution for individuals with extensive tooth loss. Whether you’re missing several teeth or require a complete set of new teeth, this procedure provides a natural-looking, functional, and lasting solution that restores your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
Benefits of All-On-4 Dental Implants
Enhanced Appearance and Confidence
Missing teeth can have a significant impact on your self-esteem and facial appearance. All-On-4 dental implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, restoring your smile’s aesthetics and boosting your self-confidence.
Improved Speech and Chewing
Missing teeth can affect your ability to speak clearly and chew comfortably. All-On-4 dental implants provide stable support for your prosthetics, enabling you to speak confidently and enjoy a wide range of foods without limitations.
With proper care, All-On-4 dental implants can last many years, offering a durable and reliable tooth replacement solution. Unlike traditional dentures, these implants are securely anchored in your jawbone, reducing the risk of slipping or shifting.
Minimal Discomfort and Recovery Time
The All-On-4 technique involves fewer implants and is less invasive than traditional implant methods. This translates to minimal discomfort during the procedure and a faster recovery time.
All-on-4 dental implants are a cost-effective alternative to replacing each missing tooth individually. With fewer implants needed, the procedure typically requires less time and expense.
In many cases, you can leave our dental office with a fully restored smile on the same day as the procedure. The temporary restoration attached to the implants allows you to enjoy the benefits of your new smile while your permanent prosthetics are being crafted.
Candidacy for All-On-4 Dental Implants
Many individuals are suitable candidates for All-on-4 dental implants. This innovative solution is particularly beneficial for those who:
- Have multiple missing teeth
- Are you experiencing significant tooth decay or damage
- Desire a stable and long-lasting tooth replacement option
- Want to improve their smile’s aesthetics and functionality
- Are looking to enhance their quality of life and self-confidence
The All-On-4 Dental Implant Process
The journey begins with a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Contos assesses your oral health, discusses your goals, and develops a customized treatment plan.
During the procedure, four strategically positioned implants are placed in your jawbone. These implants serve as sturdy anchors for your new set of teeth.
Healing Phase and Temporary Restoration
A temporary restoration is attached to the implants, allowing you to enjoy a functional smile while your permanent prosthetics are being crafted. Over the next few months, the implants integrate with your bone through osseointegration. This ensures the stability and longevity of your new teeth.
Once the implants are fully integrated, your custom-made permanent prosthetics are affixed. These prosthetics are designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless blend.
Frequently Asked Questions
▼Does insurance cover All-on-4 dental implants?
Insurance coverage for All-on-4 dental implants can vary depending on your insurance plan and provider. Some dental insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost, while others may not cover it at all. It’s best to check with your insurance company to understand what is covered and what isn’t.
▼How many teeth do I need for All-on-4 dental implants?
The “All-on-4” dental implant procedure typically replaces all the teeth in one arch (either upper or lower) with four dental implants to support a fixed prosthesis. This means you don’t necessarily need any natural teeth in that arch for the procedure. The implants are strategically placed to provide stability and support for the prosthetic teeth.
▼Do All-on-4 dental implants hurt?
As for pain and discomfort, the All-on-4 procedure is usually done under anesthesia, which minimizes any pain during the surgery. After, there may be some discomfort and swelling, but this is generally manageable with prescribed pain medications and proper care.
▼Do All-on-4 dental implants look like natural teeth?
All-on-4 dental implants provide a natural-looking appearance. The prosthetic teeth resemble teeth in shape, size, and color. Advanced materials and techniques create a lifelike appearance so they can blend in well with your natural smile.
