Do You Know How All on 4 Implants Work?With the advancements in dental technology, most individuals now consider dental implants over dentures and bridges as a solution for missing teeth. A more recent advancement of dental implants is the All on 4 implants, which restores severely damaged teeth.

How Do All on 4 Implants Work?

The All on 4 implants also offer a permanent solution to missing or damaged teeth and will look and function like your natural teeth. Unlike the traditional implants, which use six or more implants per arch, All on 4 implants use four implants per arch. These implants are angulated in the back, making them suitable for individuals with bone resorption, as they will not need a bone grafting procedure beforehand. Therefore, these implants are both economical and time-saving.

When Do I Need an All on 4 Implant?

We will recommend All on 4 implants if you are a healthy denture wearer. Also, if you have little bone resorption, you are an ideal candidate since the procedure's success is not dependent on your bone mass. For this reason, if you visit us for this implant, we will require a medical clearance from your doctor to prove that you are medically fit before we can proceed with the procedure. Also, age is not a restricting factor as long as you are healthy.

What To Expect During an All on 4 Implant Surgery

To conduct this implant, we will administer anesthesia to ease any discomfort. The procedure will require several appointments to complete. Your first visit will mainly comprise consultation and formulation of a treatment plan. After that, we will take an impression of your mouth to make a model. We will then perform the surgical procedure to install the restorations. After surgery, we will schedule an appointment to remove the sutures and examine the posts, and, with good management, this procedure has up to 98 percent success rate.
