All-On-4 Reduces Bone-Grafting Procedures
Because the posterior implants are tilted inward, existing bone can be better utilized for placement of the posts. This allows the four-post method to require less or no bone grafting before the treatment. This results in shorter recovery times, less pain and less overall procedures.
Why Chose an All-On-4 Procedure?
- Quality of Life Improvements
Most of our patients report high levels of satisfaction after the procedure and every one of them has told us it was worth it. The quality of life improvements associated with new teeth in one day cannot be understated for those who have lived with missing, decaying or damaged teeth. Laugh, smile and eat your favorite foods again, without having to worry about dentures, bridges or crowns breaking. Dental implants are your permanent replacement to missing teeth.
Shorter Treatment Times & Less Procedures
Because the system only uses 4 posts, there is less surgical work to be done when placing the posts. The technique also utilizes the existing bone better than traditional dental implants, so if the whole jawline is decayed or diseased, there is less of a need for invasive bone grafting procedures.
A few weeks after your posts are set, you’ll receive your custom fitted ‘caps’ that look and act just like your natural teeth. This part of the procedure is the most exciting for patients as they get to see their new smile for the first time.
The costs of dental implants is important when considering options for tooth replacement. Individual dental implants can range into the thousands of dollars and there is typically no qualifying medical or dental coverage that covers this process. When we utilize the teeth-in-a-day system, we are reducing the amount of procedures and recovery time dramatically, which reduces overall costs.
