What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

An All-on-4 dental implant is a type of dental restoration that utilizes a supporting structure that is fused with four or more implants—hence the name “All-on-4.” All-on-4 dental implants are an ideal restoration solution for those who are missing several consecutive teeth in a row.

All-on-4 implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth because they replace the root and provide the same function as your original teeth. With proper care, All-on-4 dental implants can last a lifetime.

Patients can have All-on-4 dental implants placed if they have sufficient bone density, are healthy enough to undergo surgery, and do not have any medical conditions that would complicate the surgery.

What Are the Advantages of All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 implants are anchored to the jawbone by only four titanium screws. Because of this, they are less invasive than other implant procedures! This can make them a great option for patients who have struggled with dental problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or missing teeth.

If you have lost most or all of your teeth, a full arch replacement is one of the most effective restorations. All-on-4 implants offer exceptional stability and aesthetics. Patients love the All-on-4 procedure because it often eliminates the need for bone grafting. An implant-supported denture fits firmly and securely, reducing your risk of dental complications.

Am I a Candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants are an excellent choice for patients who need to replace an entire arch of teeth. They’re suitable if you have missing or damaged teeth that need to be replaced in the upper and lower jaw. Although dental implants are a more expensive option than traditional dentures, they do offer numerous benefits.

All-on-4 dental implants are not meant to be a permanent solution. While they can last a lifetime, you’ll need to have several replacement procedures over time.

What Aftercare Processes Should I Practice for an All-on-4 Dental Implant?

An All-on-4 dental implant requires very little care after placement. In fact, most patients can resume eating normal foods the same day.

How Long Will My All-on-4 Dental Implant Last?

All-on-4 implant dentures tend to last about 15 years on average with good oral hygiene practices. However, some implant patients have reported their all-on-4 dentures lasting as long as 25 years.
