All-On-4 Same Day Full Jaw dental implants
If you are wanting to replace a full jaw with dental implants then the all-on-4 technique might be suitable for you. This technique is suitable for all patients who have little bone and want to replace an entire jaw with a permanent set of teeth that is fixed onto the dental implants. By using only 4 dental implants, they are positioned in such a way that we avoid any anatomical features, with less bone than normal, meaning we can treat the majority of cases compared to conventional methods.
How does the All-on-4® dental implant technique differ from dentures?
- Are cleaned and maintained similarly to natural teeth and do not need to be removed after meals or at night time.
- Enable you to bite down with close to a natural bite, thus allowing you to enjoy the foods you love, but couldn’t manage with uncomfortable dentures.
- Do not shift around and cannot fall out, saving patients much discomfort and social embarrassment.
- Do not rest solely on the gums, as is the case with dentures, and therefore seldom cause irritation, inflammation and the development of sores in the mouth.
- Dental implants promote better jaw bone health by channeling the functional stimulation associated with eating into the supporting hard tissue.
- Can halt the progression of bone loss in the jaw and so do not require one’s bridgework to be redone every few years or so (as a result of the changing shape of the jaw).
- Do not incur repeated expenses such as messy adhesives, soaking solutions, anesthetic gels and other hygienic and storage products typically needed for dentures.
- The All-on-4® bridge is far slimmer than traditional bulky dentures and doesn’t cover the hard palate. Consequently, it does not tend to trigger the gag reflex or impede your ability to taste and sense the temperature of your food properly.
What is the difference between the All-on-4® and conventional dental implant techniques?
- The All-on-4® only requires four dental implants to provide patients with new teeth. Older techniques could require as many as six, eight or even ten dental implants to be placed per jaw! This means that for full mouth reconstruction, a patient could be looking at having as many as 20 dental implants placed, which frequently worked out to be prohibitively expensive. Additionally, the use of more implants means more surgery, incurring a longer recovery period with greater post-operative pain. If spaced too close together, the risks of complications and implant failure could be greater.
- The All-on-4® typically only requires a single surgery to give patients new teeth. With only four dental implants needed per jaw, full arch replacement can quite easily and safely be completed within the space of a single procedure. Older techniques could see a patient coming in for treatment for up to 18 months, as the greater number of implants and “necessary” bone grafting would have to be performed in sessions. This means lengthier treatment, greater discomfort, multiple recovery periods, more time off from work, inconvenience and, of course, expense!
- The All-on-4® typically avoids the need for bone grafting surgery. The oral diseases that cause tooth loss can also deteriorate jawbone health. This combined with atrophy (caused by the loss of functional stimulation of the jawbone via the tooth roots) used to necessitate the augmentation of the jawbone before the surgeon could even consider treatment using dental implants. However, owing to the strategic arrangement of implants utilizing the All-on-4®technique, we can almost always find enough support from the existing bone volume for a new set of teeth to be placed. This saves patients significant discomfort, money and time AND it almost always enables patients to receive new and immediately functional teeth in as little as a single day.
