What is the All-on-4® treatment concept?

Why Should I Choose All-on-4® Over Dentures?
Dentures offer an immediate replacement option for missing teeth, but they have many downsides. The biggest problem with dentures is that they place bite force onto the gums instead of the jawbone. All-on-4® implant dentures place bite force directly onto implants in the jawbone – just like natural teeth.
The All-on-4® treatment anchors a permanent set of teeth to 4 dental implants in your jawbone. The implants fuse to your jawbone, and the permanent prosthetic teeth function and look just like your natural teeth.
All-on-4® is a permanent fix to the problems and inconveniences of removable dentures. You never have to worry about slippage, speaking problems, or dietary restrictions due to removable dentures.
Who Are the Best Candidates for All-On-4®?
If you have many problematic teeth or have already lost many of your teeth, you are a good candidate for All-On-4®. It is especially life-changing for patients who lack sufficient jawbone mass for traditional dental implants. Even if your jawbone mass is significantly low, the All-On-4® treatment can be successful.
How Long Does the All-On-4® Procedure Take?
The All-On-4® procedure gives you new teeth in a day and produces life-changing results. It is possible to come in with your old smile and leave with the smile you deserve. Sometimes the teeth are delivered the next day. Recovery time ranges from one to two weeks.
Is All-On-4® Comfortable?
All-On-4® features a permanent prosthetic arch of teeth that is custom-fit to each patient’s mouth. As soon as your procedure is finished, you feel the difference. The first set of teeth you get is temporary and while the majority of patients love them, if there are any major changes needed the final set of teeth can be adjusted accordingly.
How Much Does All-On-4® Cost?
All-On-4® implants are the most cost-effective way to replace an entire fixed upper or lower set of teeth—an excellent choice for those on a budget. And when it comes to financing at Plantation Oral Surgery, we treat our patients like VIPs. We do everything within our power to get you the smile you deserve. Our prices are very fair but they range depending on exactly what is needed, so definitely come discuss with us your specific case so we can break down the exact cost at the consultation. We strive to be the best balance of cost and quality. We definitely keep our prices as low as we can because we love doing these and want them to be as accessible as possible.
What Is the Dental Implant Surgery Procedure Like?
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a one-day procedure that requires less surgery than replacing many individual teeth. And you are asleep during the entire surgery, which usually takes 2 to 4 hours per arch. If you’re a patient who is anxious about dental procedures, this is often your best option.
The All-on-4® Procedure – Step-by-Step Guide
We understand that getting implants for the first time may sound like a scary experience. Fear can be due to uncertainty, and a little information can go a long way to quelling anxieties. So, we are happy to provide the following step-by-step outline of the process:
1. Your comfort is our top priority, so this procedure is performed while you are safely asleep with IV Sedation.
2. Once you’re sedated, our surgeons prepare your mouth for the implants by removing any remaining teeth along with any diseased or infected tissue.
3. The process consists of placing titanium posts into your jawbone. Usually, at least two implants go toward the front of your mouth and two toward the back. They are aligned so that each evenly anchors the dental implant-supported denture.
4. After your surgeon places each implant, they thoroughly clean and suture the implant site.
5. A laboratory expert works with the surgeon to get a perfect impression of your implants. This is used to make customized teeth that will be ideal, both, functionally and cosmetically.
6. Finally, you are led to a recovery room to relax as the anesthesia wears off.
We meet with you periodically over the following three months to ensure your temporary All-on-4® prosthetic is perfectly fit and comfortable. And we check to make sure everything is perfectly healed before you proceed to getting the permanent prosthetic.
