All on 4 Dental implants – all you need to know

Have you recently suffered from an accident or tooth loss? The all-on-4 dental implant is an excellent solution that can restore your mouth to as close as its original state in a day.

What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All on four or all on 4 dental implants is a restorative procedure that refers to all teeth being supported ‘on four’ dental implants. It is a dental implant technique where the lower or upper set of teeth is replaced with four implants. The implants then act as a support mechanism for a new set of fixed teeth.

The all on 4 dental implants are used for the total rehabilitation of toothless patients and patients with decayed, compromised, and badly broken teeth. Four implants are placed in the anterior maxilla, where the bone density is significantly higher and tilted 45 degrees towards the rear of the mouth. Unlike other techniques, All on four dental implants do not need the same bone density to be effective. Also, it is mostly placed within 24 hours of surgery.

How do All-on-4 Dental Implants work?

The all on 4 dental implants are a permanent prosthesis that feels and looks like natural teeth. The dental implants work by providing an anchor for connecting replacement teeth. Naturally, the bone at the front of the jaw is stronger and denser. Therefore, by placing two implants at 45 degrees, four implants with one bridge can support all replacement teeth. Likewise, the strongest bone supports the entire row of teeth.

The All-on 4 Procedure

As we mentioned above, the All-on-4 Dental Implant is a technique that allows the placement of a complete row of fully functioning replacement teeth on four implants. The implant itself is a small titanium screw positioned into the jawbone. It forms the foundation where the replacement teeth are attached. Since it is less invasive, the healing and rehabilitation time is shorter, as fewer implant fixtures are used. Also, it gives more room for flexible designs.

The procedure at Buchanan Dental Arts usually starts with all on four dental implants consultation.

  • Your dentist will take measurements of your mouth, and you can use the opportunity to express concerns or ask questions about the treatment plans.
  • Next, your dentist will remove the affected teeth, treat the affected area prepare the jawbone, and put in four new implants (Note: The number of implants would be determined at the time of consultation).
  • After putting the implants, we will stitch the wounds and administer anesthetics so you don’t feel any pain. All of these will happen in a day.

Your dentist will test the placement of your teeth in your mouth and screw the bridges in so you can see the appearance of your new teeth. Then, we will conduct bite tests, communication tests, and a few other tests to ensure the implants don’t affect your speech. After this, we can proceed to permanently secure the implants in place. And that’s everything about attaching the implant.

You will need to schedule follow-up appointments for the next six months to ensure the gums are healing, remove stitches, and ensure general teeth wellness.

How many teeth are in all on 4?

As the name suggests, there are usually four implants in an all-in-four dental implant. The 4 implants can support a full arch of 10 to 14 teeth. Therefore, if you need to replace 28 teeth, you only need 2 full arches of all on four dental implants.  However, at the time of your appointment, it will be determined according to the evaluation and diagnosis of your particular case if the best treatment is with 4, 5, or 6 implants to support a full arch fixed prosthesis.

What is better All-on-4, All-on-5, or All-on-6 implants?

The most prominent difference between All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants is in the number of implants used. Most people believe that more implants provide more strength and stability to the jawbone since each implant reinforces the bone its implanted in. With this argument, the all-on-6 dental implant appears better. However, this is not always the case. The reason is that not all patients can withstand the pressure of two extra dental implants. In this case, it is better to choose All-on-4 or All-on-5 dental implants. Your dentists will decide which is better after a consultation.

Who is not a candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?

Individuals with a history of poor oral health don’t make good candidates for All-on-4 dental implants. Not only this, but patients with underlying conditions like uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune disorders, high blood pressure, and other underlying conditions that will make healing implants slow and difficult are not fit for the procedure. Also, you can’t undergo dental implant treatment if you’re missing a significant amount of gum tissue or jaw bone or if you don’t have enough bone density for the implant.

From the very comfortable waiting room, to the extremely pleasant ladies that check you in my first impression of my new dentist was beyond expectations. The hygienist had a very pleasant disposition as did her assistant. Meeting Dr. Carlos, that’s how personal the office is, greeted me as though we’ve known each other for years. The staff creates a casual environment that makes me feel good. I’m sincerely grateful that we chose Buchanan Dental Arts to care for our dental needs.
