What is All-On-Four ?
All-on-4 dental implants are a full set of implants designed to replace your entire upper or lower set of teeth. They act as a more permanent and natural-looking alternative to dentures.
Traditionally, each dental implant has one small titanium screw that a surgeon inserts into the gums. Then, the dentist places a single crown to the screw. With an All-on-4 implant, you don’t need to replace each lost tooth individually. Instead, a dental professional will surgically insert four titanium posts into your jawbone as the main anchors.
They can then attach a permanent denture at those four areas for a seamless look across your entire mouth. The prosthesis will stay in your mouth permanently and look just as natural as your surrounding real teeth.
The All-on-4 treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution, where two straight anterior im- plants and two implants tilted up to 45o in the posterior implanted and that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery.
All-on-4 implant surgery offers several benefits that allow patients to enjoy the smile of a lifetime;
You can replace your entire set of missing teeth in just one day with only one surgery.
The implants permanently secure to your mouth, so they won’t loosen or shift like dentures. The proce- dure restores your entire set of teeth with only four implants.
All-on-4 implants cost less than replacing each tooth individually.
You won’t typically need any bone grafting.
After The Treatment
After your implant surgery, you can clean the site by gently rinsing your mouth with salt water. Then, you can treat your dental implants just like you would do to your natural teeth.
Brush and floss every day, and continue to get regular cleanings from your dentist. Before your procedure, your dental team will go over more specific oral hy- giene instructions that best meet your health needs.
Recovery time for traditional implants typically ranges from three to eight months, but with All-on-4 implants, you’ll likely recover much sooner. An All-on-4 system can fuse to your bone more easily than individual implants, which promotes better stability.
