All-on-4: A Game Changer for Dental Implants (Get a New Smile in ONE DAY)
Losing your teeth can be a horrible thing to go through and can really affect your self-esteem. You’ll worry about how you look, and you could have trouble eating and speaking. All of these things can significantly impact your day to day life.
Anyone who has gone through tooth loss is aware of dentures and implants. Dentures have always seemed to be the cheaper and simpler option, but more patients want something permanent. Implants are the other option, but they entail oral surgery that can be expensive and require recovery time. Most patients need multiple surgeries to complete the implantation process.
But there is good news for edentulous, those with missing teeth, and soon-to-be edentulous, patients. It is called All-on-4. This is the latest breakthrough in oral implant surgery and is sure to become a popular alternative to dentures and regular implants.
What is the All-on-4?
Most implants require multiple oral surgeries before being complete. That means more expense and more recovery time for the patient. During the All-on-4 surgery, fixed implants are placed at one time, requiring only one surgery, allowing for quicker recovery while being much more cost-effective for the patient.
How it Works
The All-on-4 system consists of 4 fixed-arch implants. Most other implants require more. By only needing 4 implants per arch, the surgery is quicker and cheaper than getting regular implants. For this procedure, an oral surgeon inserts the implants at an angle. By doing this, the implant can be supported by the bone. This is in stark contrast to other implants which require drilling into the bone for the implants to be supported. Lastly, the All-on-4 surgery generally takes less time to complete than other implant procedures. This helps cut down on patient discomfort and cost.
Benefits of All-on-4 Implants
The All-on-4 implants have many advantages over dentures and other implants, such as:
· You don’t have to take them out
· They function like natural teeth
· They’re comfortable for patients
· There’s no need for messy adhesives
Patients have expressed how much they love their All-on-4 implants almost immediately, and there are several reasons why. The procedure gives patients their smile back, letting them keep their self-confidence. The implants are immediately functional, so patients can get back to their busy lives sooner. Patients also don’t have to worry about their talking, as the implants are solid and do not interrupt speech.
