The all on 4 dental implant is a modern technique used to restore a full arch of teeth, using four dental implants. The procedure is increasingly popular, as it is a perfect alternative to dentures most people avoid due to slipping struggles, maintenance requirements and food restrictions.
ADVANTAGES OF THE ALL-ON-FOUR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Due to the all-on-four technique, now dentists can replace all missing teeth with just 4 implants. During the All-on-4 implant process, your dentist will place four implants into the jaw bone immediately after removing your teeth. These implants can be placed in just one day.
Patients should just eat soft food for up to eight weeks after the procedure, to help keep the implants in place. If the implant is strong enough, it is possible to deliver the whole arch of permanently fixed teeth. This eliminates the pain caused by immediate dentures or the embarrassment of wearing no teeth at all for a period of time.
One more advantage of the all-on-four implants is bone restoration and bone loss prevention, leading to a beautiful smile. Unlike dentures, these implants won’t make it hard for patients to chew, bite or speak. The all-on-fours will feel like natural teeth and no adhesive is needed.
ALL ON 4 CLEANING
The all-on-four dental implant must be properly taken care of. The patient must pay regular visits to the dentist for:
– the regular exam
– yearly X-Rays
– tartar removal
If all of natural teeth are missing, then a once a year visit may work fine. However, patients who tend to build up a lot of tartar should come to the clinic more often.
RISKS AND MAINTENANCE
> With proper care, the all on fours can last a lifetime. To protect this costly dental work, patients can wear a night-guard for acrylic or porcelain all on 4 teeth; a night-guard will protect the investment and is well worth the up front cost.
THE COST OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Getting the all-on-four dental implant procedure is an important investment in your appearance and health. The cost for such an elaborate yet effective dental work depends on several factors. In the US for example, the cost of a single dental implant averages between $1-3000 per implant. Therefore, for the complete procedure, a patient can pay up to $12,000 per arch and even more if we add the cost of x-rays or tooth extractions.
