All-on-4 Dental Implants
FINALLY WONDERFUL ALTERNATIVE TO DENTURES!
What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Dental implants are just like natural teeth in that they have two essential parts: a root and a crown. The implant fuses to the jawbone to act as an artificial root, while the artificial crown anchors to the implant. Traditional implants replace one tooth at a time, whereas All-on-4 replaces all the top or bottom teeth at once.
The permanent denture connects to the jawbone through 4 implants. A patient’s bone must have sufficient mass to support an implant, which becomes more difficult the more teeth that need replacing. All-on-4 enables your surgeon to put the four implants precisely where the jaw has enough mass to handle the anchor.
The result is a new set of prosthetic teeth that look, feel, and function naturally.
Am I a good candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Are you missing all or most of the teeth on either or both of your upper or lower arches? Have you considered dental implant or dentures? Don’t know which one to choose? You might even want to upgrade your denture, but are reticent about getting so many implants.
Why not go with a hybrid that combines the best aspects of each? The All-on-4® implant treatment concept is an innovative solution for individuals with significant tooth loss that might be right for you.
– Restore Natural Speech and Function
For patients with removable dentures or a dental bridge, there are significant benefits to replacing your current device with All-on-4. The biggest advantage is that All-on-4 implant-supported dentures permanently anchor to the jawbone, enabling natural speech and function. You can also return to a restriction-free diet and never again deal with embarrassing slippage.
– Stimulate Healthy Jawbone Growth
The most significant disadvantage to removable dentures and bridges is that they do not stimulate growth in your jawbone. Removable dentures place bite pressure directly onto the gums. Without stimulation, the jaw slowly loses bone mass. Implants act just like your natural teeth by transferring bite pressure on the jawbone and stimulating healthy growth.
– Replace All Your Teeth in One Day
The All-on-4 procedure takes place in a single surgical appointment, which usually lasts only a few hours. You can use your new teeth like usual on the very same day, and full recovery often only takes a week or two. So, in a single day, experience the complete transformation of your smile and oral function.
– Provide a Reliable and Lasting Prosthetic
All-on-4 is very reliable, showing a 94% success rate after 10-years. An all-on-4 prosthetic is designed to last for decades, and with proper care, can last a lifetime.
What’s the Cost of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Several factors contribute to the total cost of All-on-4 permanent dentures, such as your choice of material and the number of teeth you are replacing. Acrylic is more affordable than porcelain, but porcelain looks more natural and lasts longer.
All-on-4 is much more cost-effective than replacing every tooth with a single dental implant if you are missing all or most of your teeth.
It has a higher upfront cost than removable dentures, but neglecting the health of your jawbone comes with long-term healthcare costs down the road. All-on-4 dental implants help ensure the stability and health of your mouth, jaw, and facial structure.
Permanent dentures stimulate healthy jawbone growth and enable you to eat a restriction-free, nutritious diet. And you can’t put a price on the feeling of self-worth that results when you’re free to smile confidently.
The All-on-4® Process
If you were to invest in regular dental implants, the treatment process would take several appointments, several procedures, and a lengthy recovery period. It would also be extremely expensive if you were to replace all of your teeth with dental implants.
So How Does the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Work?
First, you would come in for an appointment and consultation with a specialist at Cameo, who would answer any questions you might have, determine your eligibility, and take impressions and x-rays.
One of the challenges of traditional implants is bone loss and finding a suitable spot on the jaw to anchor the titanium rod of the implant.
Bone loss will occur at a more rapid pace when you lose a tooth because there is not enough weight on the bone to keep it strong, so the bone recedes. If there is not enough bone mass in the desired area, you would have to undergo a bone grafting procedure. After a period of recovery, you would come in again and have a second surgery to install the dental implants.
With the All-on-4® Treatment Concept we would only install four implants, and bone grafting is often not necessary. Once the implants have been placed, we will affix a temporary prosthetic onto the implants.
You will be sent home to heal. After you have finished healing, you will come back in, and we will replace the temporary prosthetic with a permanent one.
How to Care for All-on-4 Permanent Dentures?
Your surgeon will provide specific oral hygiene information for your post-surgical recovery. Immediately following your procedure, you can clean the surgical area by rinsing with saltwater. Within hours, you can treat your All-on-4 permanent denture just like your natural teeth.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to the longevity of your implant-supported denture. The best practice is to brush your teeth at least twice and floss at least once a day. To kill bacteria and prevent cavities, use antiseptic mouthwash in the morning and anti-cavity mouthwash before bed.
