All-On-4 Dental Implants Q & A
How are All-On-4 implants different than regular dental implants?
A regular dental implant is used when you have a missing tooth. It serves as the anchor for an artificial tooth. Traditionally, if you have more than one missing tooth, you need one implant for each missing tooth.
With the All-On-4 system, you only need four implants on the top of your mouth, and four on the bottom, to help you restore a natural looking smile.
How do the All-On-4 implants work?
The All-On-4 implants work just the same as regular dental implants. They fuse to your jaw bone, so your artificial teeth stay permanently in place, functioning just like natural teeth. The All-On-4 implants are made of titanium, which fuses to your jawbone and prevents future bone loss.
Dr. Farzaneh can create the All-On-4 implants in one day and immediately implant them into your jaw. This is vastly different than traditional implants, where you must wait several months for the implant to fuse before you can get your permanent, artificial tooth or teeth.
With the All-On-4 technique, you leave the office with a fully functioning smile in just one appointment. Dr. Farzaneh and his team monitor your progress to make sure the implants are successful.
Am I a candidate for All-On-4 implants?
The best way to know if you’re a good candidate for All-On-4 dental implants is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Farzaneh. He can take 3-D X-rays of your mouth and jaw to determine whether or not you have adequate bone to support dental implants. If not, he may recommend a bone grafting procedure.
To be a candidate for All-On-4 dental implants, you generally must be in good health and be willing to practice good oral hygiene habits to maintain the life of your implants.
What are the benefits of All-On-4 dental implants?
All-On-4 dental implants offer many benefits. Most compelling is the fact that you can get a full-arch prosthesis in one day, without the long wait time associated with traditional implants or multiple appointments.
The All-On-4 treatment plan is also less expensive than conventional implants. In some patients, the procedure even allows them to avoid bone grafting entirely, although this depends on your jaw structure.
