Your Easy Guide to All on 4 Dental Implants

Dental implants are, by far, one of the most reliable long-term solutions for missing teeth. If you find removable prostheses such as dentures uncomfortable, you might want to consider All-on-4 implants! Developed over the course of the years, All-on-4 implants are a comparatively comfortable restoration, fixed in place and designed to give you the full confidence of a functional smile. Is this dental treatment right for you? Here’s what you need to know about it!

What is All-on-4 treatment?

A dental implant is used to imitate and replace the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth (crown) is then placed on top to mimic your natural tooth. A single implant usually supports a single tooth, but All on 4 implants involve the strategic placement of 4 dental implants to support a prosthetic set of teeth for your upper and lower jaws. Made out of titanium in a state-of-the-art laboratory, this restoration is highly durable and created to mimic your natural smile, in terms of both look and feel.

Who is eligible for All on 4?

All-on-4 implants are recommended for individuals who lack a full set of functioning teeth and for those looking for an alternative to dentures. A bone graft is usually required before getting conventional dental implants if patients have low bone density but, in most cases, this can be skipped with All on 4 Implants as they can be specifically inserted on areas with sufficient bone volume.

How does it work?

This is a relatively straightforward procedure! During your initial consultation, 3D imaging and X-rays will be taken in order to thoroughly examine your gums, teeth and bone density. On the day of your procedure, the implants will be placed with a temporary coping on top to aid the healing process while your sets of prosthetic teeth are prepared in our laboratory.  

What is the recovery period for All on 4 Implants?

This usually varies from patient to patient. The average recovery period for All-on-4 Implants is between 3 to 4 days. Sticking to liquid foods in the first few days is usually recommended as you adjust to your new set of teeth. You can gradually shift to softer foods.
