What Does All On 4 Dental Implants Mean?
All-on-4 is a dental implant technique whereby full-arch implant bridges are supported by just 4 dental implants. It can be a daunting thought if you require a full-mouth restoration, not to mention the cost or the pain you may have to go through to feel confident enough to smile freely once again. So what are your options?
Dentures are the low-cost option where artificial teeth and gums are moulded to your mouth. They adhere using suction and are not permanently fixed, so require removal and cleaning each night. The problem with “false teeth” is that due to the lack of tooth roots in your jaw, over time, your jaw will shrink, and these dentures must be replaced every few years to avoid slippage.
Full implants differ from all-on-4 implants because they use a lot more implants per jaw – typically 8-10, which can put a strain on your mouth and body and take anywhere from 6 months to a year to complete because your jaw needs to heal in between procedures. This type of dental restoration can also be extremely costly. The all-on-4 dental technique puts a lot less pressure on your jaw thanks to the fact that only 4 dental implants are used, and the entire procedure can be done in a single day. The dental implants are angled and don’t require bone grafting so recovery time is a lot quicker, meaning you will be smiling again in no time! Read More
