All on Four Implants Q & A
What is the All-on-4 implant procedure?
The All-on-4 procedure involves placing a full mouth of dental implants using only 4-6 implants. The implants support a full arch of fixed artificial teeth.
The procedure can be performed on the upper or lower arches or both arches simultaneously.
How does the All-on-4 implant procedure work?
The All-on-4 procedure is usually performed in four steps.
First, your dentist conducts a detailed examination of your current oral health and dental records. Secondly, you undergo CT scans to create 3-D images of your jaws and teeth.
Thirdly, your dentist creates a computer simulation of the implants to plan your surgery. The special software helps your dentist digitally position the implants into your jawbone at the precise location needed.
Finally, your oral surgeon performs the surgery. During surgery, you will be given anesthesia, and the implants will be placed directly into your jawbone.
What are the benefits of the All-on-4 dental implant procedure?
If you’re missing teeth, you’re tired of your dentures not fitting right, or you're tired of your dentures causing sores, the All-on-4 treatment might be right for you. Even if you have reduced bone volume in your jaw, your dentist can still perform the All-on-4 dental implant procedure. Other benefits include:
- A permanent set of teeth that function and look just like natural teeth
- Reduction in the pressure on your gums associated with removable dentures
- Prevents your jawbone from deteriorating due to a lack of natural stimulation
- A permanent, full set of teeth without multiple surgeries
- Can make your facial features appear more full and less sunken
- Impressive results and shorter treatment times
- Usually a less invasive procedure than traditional dental implant procedures
If you’re unable to wear dentures, dental implants are an excellent solution. Dental implants can’t decay and deteriorate like your normal teeth. And since they’re permanent, you can eat all the foods you love.
