We work with you at every step of the process to make sure that you understand the procedures we will perform and to provide you with the best dental solutions for your needs.
What Is an All-on-4 Implant?
All-on-4 dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into your jaw using an advanced process that ensures that the back posts offer maximum support for biting, chewing and other activities. This allows you to treat your All-on-4 dentures in the same way you would treat your natural teeth, including brushing, chewing and speaking with confidence.
How Do All-on-4 Implants Work?
Unlike other types of dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants use an innovative process that places the rear titanium posts more deeply into the bone of the jaw at an angle. This can make implants a viable solution even for patients with some bone loss in the jaw. By creating a deeper connection with bone tissue and allowing these titanium posts to heal into the bone over a period of weeks or months, you’ll spend less time healing and more time enjoying your permanent denture. Your All-on-4 dentist will be able to provide you with expert solutions for replacing your teeth with the most natural-looking options in the dental field.
All-on-4 Before and After Treatment Steps
The process of applying All-on-4 dentures typically requires extensive preparation before your treatment plan can begin. At Gentle Dental of Warren, we perform comprehensive examinations that include X-rays and careful checks of the condition of your teeth and gums as well as the degree of bone loss in your jaw. This will provide us with the most accurate information about your dental health so we can offer you the most viable solution. Our dental team will let you know if you are a good candidate for All-on-4 treatment.
After your implants have been placed, our dentists will apply a temporary denture to provide you with greater comfort and increased confidence while your implants heal into the bone of your jaw. When the healing process is complete, we will apply your permanent dentures to complete your All-on-4 procedure. This will allow you to chew, speak and bite with the same confidence that you had with your healthy natural teeth.
How Much Will my All-on-4 Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of your dental implants and dentures will vary depending on a few important factors:
- The number of teeth that must be extracted and the complexity of these procedures
- The condition of your gums and of the bone in your jaw
- The materials used to construct your dentures
Our team will work with you to keep your costs as low as possible. We bill to most major dental plans and will strive to have as much of your treatment plan covered as possible. Our administrative professionals understand the intricacies of dental plans and will work with your insurer to help make your All-on-4 experience as cost effective as possible.
How Are Traditional Implants and All-on-4 Implants Different?
Traditional implants are placed in an up-and-down or vertical position to allow the placement of an artificial tooth or bridge in a specific area. The approach taken during All-on-4 implant placements is different. While the front implants are inserted in the usual way, the back implants are angled at 45 degrees to allow the deepest possible placement of the titanium posts. This ensures the most stable denture after the fitting and application processes are complete. This placement approach also makes it possible for those with some bone loss to undergo All-on-4 procedures successfully.
How Are All-on-4 Dentures and Traditional Dentures Different?
One of the most important differences between All-on-4 dentures and traditional dentures is the permanent attachment of All-on-4 devices. Traditional dentures can be removed and are attached to gums with adhesive compounds. All-on-4 implants allow the permanent attachment of dentures, making it easier for patients to clean the dentures. These advanced solutions also leave the roof of the mouth free to improve the entire experience for our patients.
