What Are All-on-Four Dental Implants?

Are you struggling with missing teeth or painful dentures? Could you imagine a world where you go into the dentist's office one day and leave hours later with a pain-free, confidence-boosting smile?


While that may sound like a distant dream, it's very much a reality, thanks to all-on-four dental implants. This dental innovation is changing lives by offering a swift and reliable solution to missing and painful teeth.


So, let's look at how these implants work, answer some of the most common questions, and explain what makes them such a popular choice for those wanting to get their smile back.

What Exactly Are All-on-Four Dental Implants?

All-on-four dental impacts are a revolutionary treatment for missing or damaged teeth. As the name suggests, they only require four implants to replace a whole teeth arch, rather than one implant for each missing tooth.


A revolutionary solution by NEODENT, the all-on-four treatment concept involves angling the rear implants to increase strength and eliminate unnecessarily invasive and time-consuming bone grafts and other similar oral treatments.


Consequently, these new teeth can be fitted in a day, earning them the nicknames "teeth in a day" or "same-day teeth." Compared to traditional implants, which can take months and several procedures, you can walk out of your dental surgery with a freshly minted smile full of perfect teeth.

How Does the All-on-Four Dental Implants Process Work?

The process's first stage involves a consultation with a dental specialist.

Top providers, including ourselves here at EPIC, will take a 3D CT scan to evaluate your oral health and suitability for the treatment. Once approved, we will discuss your best treatment plan, including your desired aesthetics. Every patient's experience may differ a little bit.Here, we'll cover the general process.


With your tailored plan, you will return to undergo surgery - if necessary. Any problematic teeth are removed at this point, and four titanium implants are inserted into your jawbone to support and anchor your new prosthetic teeth. Abutments are then fitted to each implant (these are what secure the teeth).


Then, as soon as your new teeth are ready, they can be screwed into place at the abutment sites – giving you a new set of fully-functional and natural-looking teeth in a day.

What Are the Advantages of Choosing All-on-Four Dental Implants?

Pursuing all-on-four dental implants to solve your dental issues comes with several advantages. They include but are not limited to:


·  Short treatment and recovery time: The procedure and healing time are significantly faster than many other options, including traditional dental implants.


·  Long-term durability: All-on-four dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution lasting decades, leveraging incredibly durable materials such as titanium and zirconia.


·  Pain and hassle-free teeth: Unlike removable dentures that soon become uncomfortable and inconvenient, all-on-four dental implants are a fixed solution for missing teeth.


·  Aesthetically pleasing: All-on-four implants deliver a stunning, natural-looking smile – boosting your confidence and self-esteem.


·  More cost-effective treatment: If you have several missing teeth, all-on-four implants are often more cost-effective, giving you up to 14 new permanent teeth at once.


·  Eat what you want: Unlike dentures, which can move when you chew, all-on-four implants act like natural teeth with few eating restrictions once healed.


·  No need for bone grafts: The all-on-four dental implant procedure doesn't require bone grafting, making it a less invasive option and providing enhanced eligibility to those with bone loss.

All-on-Four Dental Implants FAQs

How are all-on-four dental implants different from traditional implants?

As the name suggests, all-on-four dental implants only require four implants per jaw to support an entire arch of teeth. Conversely, traditional dental implants work on a one implant to one tooth ratio.

How long does the all-on-four dental implant procedure take?

Removing teeth and installing the four implants and abutments typically takes a few hours. If your teeth are fitted immediately, our specialists can complete the procedure in less than a day.

Are all-on-four dental implants painful?

While there may be mild discomfort post-surgery during the healing process, the procedure is pain-free. Most patients manage any lingering soreness with standard pain relief options such as Tylenol or Advil.

How do I maintain my all-on-four dental implants?

The great thing about this solution is that you care for them in the same way you would natural teeth. In other words, maintenance involves practicing good oral hygiene, brushing and flossing, and visiting the dentist for checkups.

How much do all-on-four dental implants cost?

The cost of all-on-four dental implants depends on various factors, including the number of implants required, the extent of work needed, and the specific materials used for the teeth. Once you've consulted with a dental professional, you will know precisely how much the treatment will cost.

Can anyone get all-on-four dental implants?
