All-on-4® is a Full Arch Dental Restoration
All-on-4® is one of the most effective ways to give yourself back the smile you deserve. If you miss multiple teeth, talk to your dentist about having this procedure done. It may be the right solution for you.
Our smile says a lot about us and is usually the first feature people notice when they meet us. All of us want to give a great first impression, and if we are missing teeth, this can sometimes make us less comfortable meeting new people and being ourselves. If this sounds like you, then it's important to know that you can restore your smile and live the life that you deserve.
This full-arch dental restoration is a great option for patients suffering from heavily damaged teeth and requires having the decaying teeth removed and some implants put in to mask the damage. You'll be amazed at the results that this solution offers.
What is an All-on-4 dental implant?
This type of implant is done when four teeth are implanted at once into a patient’s gum line instead of one individual implant at a time. The All-on-4® implants act as a bridge and provide a stronger natural-looking smile than other options for replacing missing teeth.
Each arch can have a long bridge of sometimes 10 to 14 teeth, depending on the available bone in the gums.
This implant is popular today for many reasons.
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Very high success rate, up to 95 %
- No one will see the patient toothless ever again (no lost dentures or removable partials)
- Mimics the feeling of natural chewing better than any other type of tooth replacement
- Bone and tissue is preserved
Patients will no longer fear the embarrassment of possibly having their teeth fall out while eating or any other time throughout the day. This type of implant is very secure and will feel like you still have your natural teeth. Nobody can tell that you recently had dental work.
What will it cost?
You may be curious about the cost of this treatment option. This procedure can be expensive but always talk to your dentist and call your dental insurance company to determine if they cover any part of dental implants. Your dental office will work with you, and most can provide an affordable payment option for your budget. It's important to have a financial discussion prior to the treatment so that you aren't surprised by the cost and have a clear understanding of how it will be paid for in the end.
There is no reason for anyone to walk around feeling unconfident about their smile today. Dental surgery has come a long way, and every dentist wants to help patients be secure with their smiles and help prevent any other types of health issues associated with oral health issues. Learn more about whether or not your insurance covers this procedure and any assistance that your dentist can provide for a payment plan.
Benefits of the full arch procedure
There are many benefits to this treatment option that you may have not realized. The procedure can be done in the same-day surgery. The patient can leave on the day of the procedure with a full set of teeth. This makes it much easier for scheduling around work, school, or family obligations.
There will be a thorough appointment scheduled before the surgery. During this visit, your dentist will take measurements, molds, possibly request blood work and discuss everything that will take place the day of the procedure. This is also a great time to ask any questions that you may have about the procedure and the recovery process. This appointment also sets up the surgery, so everything is already in place on the scheduled day, and the patient never has to worry about walking around with missing teeth while waiting on the surgery. Discuss the details with your dentist to learn more about what you can expect each step of the way.
