All-on-4 dental implants are a revolutionary method to help create a perfect smile for people missing a number of teeth. Rather than implanting between 6-8 titanium implants into the jaw, as we would with a conventional full dental implant, we are able to implant only 4 titanium screws into the jaw. This can reduce pain and inconvenience for patients.
With All-on-4 dental implants, the lightweight bridge is permanently fixed into the jaw. This means there are no accidental slips or fall outs, as with conventional dentures. Additionally, the bridge is designed to rest against the ridge of your jaw, just like natural teeth, which means less rubbing or pressure sores as you could possibly get from conventional dentures.
When we perform surgery for All-on-4 implants, we level the jaw bone to insure all diseased and damaged sockets are removed. This means there is less possibility for inflammation or problems down the road, once the implants are in place. Additionally, there is no need for us to perform bone grafts with All-on-4 procedures, which reduces a lot of pain for patients and expedites the time for us to complete the procedure.
All leveling and implantation surgery is performed during one visit. With conventional implant surgeries, you can expect to pay at least 2-3 visits for the initial surgeries. The bridge is also fitted one day after the surgery is complete, which means less down time for you and a shorter amount of time to regain that gorgeous smile.
