What are All-On-4 Implants?

All-on-4 dental implants, also known as a full arch restoration, are a popular technique for replacing a full row of missing teeth (upper or lower jaw) with a fixed, permanent denture supported by just four implants.

Unlike traditional methods requiring 6-8 implants, All-on-4 uses strategically placed implants (2 angled at the back and 2 straight at the front) to anchor the denture.

No need for messy adhesives or the slipping issues associated with traditional dentures. These implants create a stable foundation for the denture, mimicking natural teeth.

In some cases, the temporary denture can be attached on the same day as implant placement, offering immediate aesthetic and functional improvement.

What are the Benefits of All-On-4 Implants?

All-On-4 implants are a permeant and stable solution for missing teeth. Dentures, for example, must be removed for cleaning, making the fit loose over time. Loose dentures can cause rubbing and irritation, risking a chance of an infection.

Since these implants are anchored to the jawbone, caring for All-on-4 implants is like caring for natural teeth. Brushing and flossing regularly maintains good oral hygiene, unlike traditional dentures that require special cleaning solutions and soaking.

All-on-4 implants are permanently anchored to the jawbone, providing a stable and fixed solution. This eliminates the discomfort and inconvenience associated with dentures.

Are All-On-4 Implant Expensive?

Generally, All-On-4 implants are more expensive than traditional dentures due to the surgical procedure and implant materials.

While the initial cost might be higher than traditional dentures, All-on-4 implants can be a cost-effective solution in the long run. They eliminate the need for replacements and repairs often associated with dentures, leading to potentially less overall cost over time.

There are several factors that influence how much your procedure will be. For example, if you’ve suffered major bone loss in the jaw, we’ll need to complete a bone graft before implanting the All-On-4 replacements.

Each situation is unique to the individual. If you would like to know how much All-On-4 implants would cost for you, schedule a consultation at our Glendale oral surgery office.
