No matter what causes it, losing teeth is normal, and so is losing confidence in your smile as a result. For years, the only option was replacing each missing tooth individually. Recently, there’s a new kind of dental implant that makes regaining your smile a lot easier: All-on-4 dental implants.

All-on-4 dental implants are a more permanent and simpler solution to tooth loss. With all-on-4 dental implants, your dentist will place four titanium posts into your jawbone. The anchors are placed at an optimal angle to provide support for your arch and complete stabilisation for your dentures. Your dentist will attach permanent dentures to the four anchors to create a seamless look around your entire mouth.

Benefits of All-on-4 Implants

All-on-4 dental implants are a great choice for most people who have lost an entire set of teeth. Here are some of the benefits that patients enjoy:

  • You can replace an entire set of teeth in one day with one procedure.
  • The implants are permanent.
  • All-on-4 implants cost less than replacing each tooth individually.
  • You only need four implants which requires a lot less of an invasive procedure.

Considerations About All-on-4 Implants

All-on-4 implants are revolutionary, but that doesn’t mean they are the best choice for everybody. Your dentist should walk you through all of your options and the potential drawbacks to All-on-4 implants to help you make an informed decision for your smile and your health!

Some important considerations about All-on-4 implants include:

  • You must have a high amount of bone to place the anchors and hold the implants in place.
  • The dentures are permanent, so you can’t test out the look before you commit.
  • All-on-4 implants cannot be placed in the molar area, which is the area of the mouth with the greatest bite force.

How Long Do All-on-4 Implants Last?

With proper care, All-on-4 can last up to 20 years! You can care for your All-on-4 implants just as you would care for your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily, and make sure you schedule regular dental cleanings. Your dentists will give you specific care instructions after your procedure.

What is the Recovery Time for All-on-4 Implants?

The All-on-4 technology is designed to fuse to your bone much faster than traditional implants. While recovery looks different for everyone, most patients only need about three months until their new teeth are stable.

After your implant surgery, you will rinse your mouth with salt water to keep your gums and new teeth free of bacteria.
