All-on-4 Dental Implants

Beautiful and Strong Full Smile Replacement

Dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement. However, there are patients who are not qualified candidates for traditional dental implant treatment. Some do not have adequate bone volume to support standard size implants; others are looking for a more affordable treatment. Fortunately, there is an alternative. All-on-4 dental implants can support an entire dentition along either your upper or lower arch and only four implants are needed to provide an immediate solution to your problems. Continue reading to find out if All-on-4 is the right tooth replacement choice for you.

Candidates for All-on-4

All-on-4 dental implants can be the ideal choice if you are currently beset with discomfort from dentures that don’t fit or if you know that you need full dentures. After tooth loss, your jawbone begins to degenerate. This cannot only lead to a prematurely aged appearance, but may also necessitate bone grafting or sinus lift surgery to accommodate traditional dental implants. All-on-4, however, are smaller implants that can hold dentures in place without the need for sinus elevations or, in most cases, bone grafting.

The All-on-4 Process

Whether you are missing a full dentition of teeth along your top or bottom arch, All-on-4 dental implants can provide the support you need for a complete reconstruction. Your dentist will strategically position the implants along your jaw and angle each one to take better advantage of available bone quantity. After this minor oral surgery is complete, you’ll be given an immediate non-removable set of teeth to wear during the healing process. In approximately six to eight months, you’ll return to our office to have the permanent prosthetic set in place.

Advantages of All-on-4

The All-on-4 method offers a number of other advantages. These include:

The All-on-4 dentition provides patients with the stability they need and the appearance they want.

All-on-4 FAQ’s

If you’re missing all or most of your teeth, getting a replacement can be intimidating. Like many patients, you may be curious about All-on-4 in Newtown and what the process entails. Dental implants are a newer replacement compared to traditional dentures, so patients often wonder about them as a treatment option. That’s why we have included the answers to some of the most frequently asked All-on-4 questions. Keep reading to satisfy your curiosity and learn just how easy it is to restore your smile with health and beauty.

How is All-on-4 Different than Traditional Dentures?

Traditional dentures are held in place with natural suction or denture adhesive. This smile replacement often slips and slides when talking or chewing, causing discomfort plus embarrassment. However, All-on-4 combines dentures with 4 dental implants for a firm and stable smile. These dental implants are rooted in the jawbone to provide the denture with ultimate support, allowing you to talk, laugh, and chew with confidence. Dental implants themselves can last for an entire lifetime, but the denture will eventually need replacing.

How Does All-on-4 Differ from Implant Dentures?

Implant-retained dentures will typically need 5 to 8 dental implants total, which requires various dental appointments as well as more time and money invested. However, All-on-4 only requires 4 dental implants! We can find the parts of your jaw that are strongest, placing all of your implants during the same appointment. This option is not only more convenient, but it may actually save you money in the long term. Plus, each treatment is personalized, allowing you to achieve your dream smile.

Is All-on-4 Safe?

When patients hear that All-on-4 requires surgery, they automatically think it will be painful or unsafe. However, All-on-4 dental implants have a success rate of about 98%. We also ensure that our patients are numb and comfortable before beginning the procedure. The jawbone is a strong, and it doesn’t contain many pain-sensing nerves, making the process more comfortable than you may expect. The only discomfort you may experience is some slight soreness that occurs after surgery. However, it is important to avoid lifestyle choices like tobacco use and heavy alcohol consumption in the following days after surgery because these factors can lead to failure.

Does All-on-4 Look Natural?

One of the many benefits of All-on-4 dental implants is that they allow your denture to look even more beautiful and natural than a traditional prosthesis. A denture that slips and slides around will often cause an embarrassing facial appearance. However, dental implants keep the denture secure, but they also stimulate the jawbone to prevent it from deteriorating after tooth loss. This important factor allows patients to enjoy fuller and more youthful facial appearances. Our All-on-4 dentures are customized to meet your specific needs, giving you the smile of your dreams.
