You may have heard of All-on-4 dental implants before, but the fact is that it’s still a relatively new procedure that isn’t performed by everyone. Specifically, All-on-4 is a full-mouth restoration option where arches of replacement teeth can be attached to the jaw using as few as four implants. It’s much less invasive than the conventional process and the results are typically very good. It’s also a viable alternative to other full-mouth restoration techniques, like dentures.
Because All-on-4 is still somewhat new, a lot of patients don’t know just what the process involves and what they can expect of it. We’re here to break it all down so you can better determine if All-on-4 is right for you.
Here’s a look at the process involved in All-on-4, from the initial consultation to the end result:
For many people, undergoing the All-on-4 procedure is life changing. Some people experience a significant lift in their self-esteem and are no longer afraid to smile or interact with others. All-on-4 is also able to restore a person’s facial shape that may have been previously affected by tooth loss.
What’s more is that All-on-4 is a long-lasting process. The artificial teeth are crafted from durable titanium. In addition to durability benefits, these artificial teeth also permit patients to eat pretty much anything they want without having to worry about pain or cracking a tooth.
