All-On-4 Frequently Asked Questions
How are All-on-4 Dental Implants different from dentures?
All-on-4 implants are a permanent set of teeth that look and feel like natural teeth. They are permanent teeth that are brushed & cleaned like natural teeth. They don’t have to be taken out and don’t need any adhesives. With All-on-4 implants, you can experience the hot and cold of your food and increase the force of your bit, up to 70%, so you are able to eat all of your favorite foods again!
How do All-on-4 dental implants compare to traditional implants?
The All-on-4 dental implant technique uses just four implants per arch were traditional implants typically use 6 or more in each arch. The All-on-4 procedure also places the implants at an angle, allowing for increased contact by using the natural support of your bone. There is also no bone grafting required for most patients, which is common in more traditional implant procedures.
How long is the All-on-4 dental implant surgery?
Typically about 2.5 hours per arch.
What is the success rate with All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Studies show a 98% success rate using All-on-4 dental implants.
Who is the ideal candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?
Someone who is currently wearing dentures or who will need dentures in the future. Age is not a factor, but candidates should be in good health.
Will my results look natural?
Yes. The All-on-4 technique gives you permanent teeth that will look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
Why don’t I get my permanent set of teeth the day my implants are placed?
Like with any surgery, you will need time to heal, but you will not leave without teeth! A temporary set of teeth will be placed on your implants. Once you have had time to heal, your permanent teeth will be placed during a follow-up visit. (Approx. 6-8 months after surgery)
What if I just need implants on my bottom arch? What if I need All-on-4 dental implants on both arches in the future?
All-on-4 implants can be placed on just the upper or lower arch. If we feel you might need replacement teeth on both the upper and lower in the future, we may suggest doing the procedure on both arches at the same time. This will give you better results and save you both time and money.
What type of cleaning is required after an implant is placed?
Implants should be taken care of just like natural teeth, daily brushing and flossing is recommended. We will go over oral hygiene instructions and recommend the best treatment plan for your needs.
