Teeth Restoration: How All-On-Four Implants Can Bring Back Your Smile

All-on-Four implants have become popular nowadays because of their clever combination of different dental methods and technologies, resulting in a more solid and secure dental implant procedure. The stability and reliability of this teeth restoration have now made All-in four implants dental treatment patients specifically ask for.

If you’re one of those struggling with teeth loss but are hesitant to take the lengthy conventional dental implants or don’t know where to start, here is how “All-on-Four” implants can help you bring back your smile in no time. 

A precise and quick treatment within a day 

All-on-Four implants don’t require bone grafting, so you don’t have to worry about cuts and pains. All-on-Four implants precisely make use of the available jaw bone, avoiding the need to graft. So if you were told that you can’t have a dental implant because of bone loss, All-on-Four dental implants could be the solution to rebuild your smile. 

A traditional dental implant will require at least 6, 8, or more implants which will typically take at least half a year to complete because of its lengthy process. This completion period can often leave you with no teeth or ill-fitting dentures for a long time. With All-on-Four dental implants, you can be fitted with a temporary denture on the same day of your treatment. So you don’t have to go without teeth for 3 months while you heal like in conventional dental implants. Generally, All-on-Four implants take roughly 4 hours to complete (2 hours per arch). This is extremely quick and time-saving than the 1-2 hours it takes for one implant in a traditional dental implant procedure. 

Provides a more physical connection between the jaw and the implant 

All-on-Four implants don’t simply replace an individual tooth but take a much more detailed process, so you don’t have to worry about the drawbacks of conventional dental implants. While the portion of the implant that is fixed inside the jaw bone is the same as in a conventional dental implant, the top exposed portion of the implant has a specialized cap-shaped tip. This tip makes a much solid tight, secure physical connection between the implants and the gum, providing a much more natural feeling for patients to chew, talk, and smile.

Strategically positioned 

All-on-Four implants don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach but a more personalized treatment to make the most effective placement to achieve the best results. Your surgeon will first carefully examine and analyze your jaw to come up with an arrangement. 

Usually, most implants are arranged as two implants near the front of the mouth inserted in a vertical alignment. Two more implants are inserted into the back of the mouth in the molar area. These implants at the back of the mouth are placed at a steeper angle to provide more stability. This strategic positioning will ensure that the implant is securely and comfortably connected to the jaw, not having you worry about embarrassing situations like smiling with loose dentures. 

Once the implants are strategically positioned, the implant-supported dentures can be easily used, allowing a quick recovery time to return to your usual routines. 

No frequent fitting sessions 

All-on-Four implants are firstly secured in a way you don’t have to make frequent fitting sessions. Secondly, because the implants are securely embedded into your jaw, the connection is not prone to the problems like loose or uncomfortable implants that you may experience from the gum recessions traditional dentures cause. 

Thirdly and most importantly, an All-on-Four dental implant can last for 10 years or even 20 if you give the right dental care. Although it may experience daily wear and tear, you will never have to replace it once every 5 years. So with all-in-four dental implants, you don’t have to worry about smiling or not wanting to attend a party until you get your implants fit or re-inserted.
