All-on-4 is a revolutionary, innovative method in the dental implant industry. It is also known by many other names in the dental world such as Surgery to Smile, Teeth in a Day, and Done in One because you can get the smile you’ve always dreamed of in just ONE day.
To help answer some of the questions you may be thinking about, we summarized the most frequently asked below to help you understand more about All-on-4.
What are All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 implants are a permanent set of fabricated teeth set on dental implants surgically placed into your jaw. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They provide superior benefits such as more comfort and preventing bone deterioration.
How are All-on-4 Dental Implants different from dentures?
All-on-4 dental implants differ from dentures because they are a permanent solution for missing or severely damaged teeth. They are secured directly into your jaw, so they look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
How do All-on-4 dental implants compare to traditional implants?
The All-on-4 dental implant technique uses only four implants per arch, whereas traditional implants utilize anywhere from six to eight implants or more in each arch. The implants of the All-on-4 procedure are also placed at an angle, which allows for increased contact by using the natural support of your bone.
Who is the ideal candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?
The ideal candidate for the All-on-4 dental implant procedure at Advanced Dentistry is someone who is missing most or all of their teeth or is currently wearing dentures. Age is not a limiting factor as long the candidate is in good health.
Will my results look natural?
Absolutely! The All-on-4 dental implant technique gives you permanent teeth that look, feel, and function just like real teeth. No one will know you have implants unless you tell them. (Your secret is safe with us!)
What if I just need implants on my bottom arch? What if I someday need All-on-4 dental implants on both arches?
All-on-4 implants can be placed on just the upper or lower arch. Our implant specialists will evaluate your circumstance and if we feel you might eventually need replacement teeth on both the upper and lower arches, we might suggest performing the procedure on both arches at the same time. This provides better results while also saving time and money. Your doctor will work with you to determine the best approach for you.
What type of cleaning is required after an implant is placed?
Since dental implants should be treated like your natural teeth, daily brushing and flossing are recommended. Our team of specialists and dental hygienists will review oral hygiene instructions with you and recommend the most appropriate daily oral hygiene plan to fit your needs.
