Start Enjoying Your New Teeth Immediately

Without question, dental implants have been a game-changer in restorative dentistry. Implants replace the roots of lost teeth. They anchor your replacement teeth and create a direct connection to your jawbone. That connection allows you to bite and chew with practically as much force as someone with a full set of natural teeth. This also prevents the bone loss that can occur with traditional dentures, which rest over your gums.

A typical implant placement procedure uses six to eight implants to support a set of full-arch replacement teeth. After placement, you may need months of recovery before your jaw has healed so you can support your new teeth. That means more appointments and more time without teeth.

With All-on-4, you only need four expertly placed implants to secure your replacement teeth. Fewer implants means:

  • Faster recovery
  • Lower cost than other implant options
  • Ability to enjoy your new teeth right away

Many people who can benefit from All-on-4 have already experienced some bone loss in their jaw. Before they can get a standard implant procedure, they may need a bone graft first. By choosing All-on-4, you may be able to skip the bone graft and start enjoying the benefits of your implant-supported teeth right away.

Common Questions About All-on-4

What do All-on-4 dental implants cost?

The specific cost of All-on-4 dental implants will vary depending on the type of replacement teeth you receive, among other factors. However, it is one of the most economical ways to replace most or all of your teeth with implants. That’s because your dentist uses just four implants to support a full arch of teeth. Since fewer implants are used, the cost is lower.

What does All-on-4 dental implants mean?

All-on-4 is a special procedure that uses four dental implants to support a complete arch of teeth. It can be performed in your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or both jaws. The key to an All-on-4 procedure is angling two of the implants to maximize contact with your jawbone and promote stability.

How painful are All-on-4 dental implants?

We will administer local anesthesia to numb your mouth prior to your All-on-4 procedure. This should eliminate any discomfort. However, if you’re worried about pain, you can also receive sedation. Most patients can control the minor pain they feel after the procedure with over-the-counter medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Discomfort typically won’t last more than a day or two.

How long do All-on-4 implants last?

Like other kinds of dental implants, those used in an All-on-4 procedure can last decades, or potentially for your lifetime. The restorations attached to your implants, however, will likely require replacement at some point. With care, your new teeth can last a decade or more. You can extend their life by taking good care of them. That includes following good oral hygiene practices, visiting us at least twice a year for checkups, and making positive lifestyle changes such as stopping smoking.
