Are You a Candidate for All-On-4® Treatment Concept?
What is All-On-4® Treatment Concept?
All-on-4 is a type of dental implant which supports an entire bridge of prosthetic teeth on four implant posts. If you are looking to replace multiple teeth, you should consider All-on-4 implant dentures. You will most likely qualify as a candidate for All-on-4 if you qualify for dental implants in general.
Is All-On-4 the Best Choice for Me?
All-on-4 is a good option if you:
All-On-4 is a Great Option for Those Wearing Dentures Already
Those who are used to dentures are great candidates for All-on-4. All-on-4 works better than dentures and looks more natural as well. If you’re already wearing dentures, we won’t need to extract any of your teeth. There’s also no need for bone grafts if you choose All-on-4, allowing you to save both time and money.
Time and Cost for All-On-4 Treatment
All-on-4 is a great option for you if you want to get your replacement teeth put in right away. We’ve designed our All-on-4 procedure so most of our patients can have their implants placed (and teeth extracted, if necessary) and get their dentures attached to the implants on the same day.
All-on-4 is a very cost effective option in comparison to other tooth replacement procedures. We don’t advise making your choice solely on cost, even though it is an important factor if there’s a chance you’ll lose all your teeth at once. Getting multiple replacements is expensive in that situation, often due to oral disease, jaw trauma, or a misaligned bite. All-on-4 will give you a better price and quality results.
Am I a Candidate for All-On-4?
Since All-on-4 requires dental implants, a good candidate is someone who:
If you have ever had gum disease, it can threaten your implants along with your natural teeth. Health conditions such as diabetes can affect oral health as well. You also cannot receive dental implants if you’ve had (or will soon undergo) radiation therapy for your jaw. Shaun B. Rai DMD will talk with you about your overall health during your consultation. You can receive dental implants if you are healthy, regardless of your age.
Medications that Interfere with Healing
Certain medications can impede the healing period:
If you smoke, the risk of your dental implants failing rises is up to three times higher. We strongly recommend quitting completely, but it may work if you can abstain for the duration of the surgical procedure and healing period.
