All On 4 Dental Implants

All On 4 Dental Implants

Implant dentistry is evolving significantly, and the All on 4 implants are one of its best innovations. The system of implants allows all the teeth to be replaced on just four dental implants. This is an excellent alternative for traditional implants.

The procedure for getting All on 4 dental implants

At Inspire Dental Centre, we have different approaches to treating patients based on their individual needs. For patients that need All on 4 dental implants, we follow this procedure:

  • During your initial visit, we will go through with the consultation. After that, we will take some x-ray images for the impressions. When this is done, you will be given a date for the next appointment.
  • This second appointment will be the day your tooth extraction will be done if there is a need. If there is no need, the dentist will just go on and fix the implants.
  • We will require you to keep up with two follow-up appointments after the surgery.
  • After the fixing of the implants, you will be allowed for about 4 months before another impression will be taken. This next impression will be used to prepare your permanent crowns.
  • Two months after this, you will have to return to the clinic for our expert to place your new set of crowns.

You can visit our clinic to meet with our dentist. We offer orthodontic services other than the All on 4.

Difference between All on 4 and the regular implants

The following features make All on 4 dental implants different from the regular implants:

  • An entire arch can be entirely supported by 4 to 6 implants in some cases.
  • On average, the whole arch of the mouth may need 6 to 10 implants for perfect support.
  • The all in 4 dental implants are easier to accomplish and less invasive compared to the regular implants.

All on 4 dental implants vs dentures

Dentures gain support from the soft tissues of the gum. This will lead to bone loss. Also, dentures are not so stable, and with them, you cannot eat every kind of food; you also have to be cautious while coughing and laughing so that they do not shift or fall off.

Meanwhile, the All on 4 dental implants give you a look and feel of your natural teeth. With them, you can eat whatever you want and brush just like you did with your healthy teeth. Compared to the regular implants, the All on 4 prevents further degradation of your jawbone.
