When you’re suffering from tooth loss, you now have a lot of options available to restore your missing teeth. Now, many people choose to turn to dental implants because they are a permanent solution to fill the gaps. Not to mention, they look and function just as your own natural teeth. However, there are various types of implants available. So, how do you know which is best? An All on Four dental implant is among the most preferred option for those who have lost all of their missing teeth with the full-arch restoration.

What are All on Four Implants?

All on Four implants use the same basic method as other forms of implants. Titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jaw bone to act as the foundation for the teeth. Then, once the jaw bone has healed around the implants, the prosthetic teeth are inserted. The key difference with All on Four implants and other forms of implants is the fact less posts are used to secure the implants in place. Instead of each missing tooth needing a post in order to be replaced, only four posts are used to hold a full-arch prosthesis in place. With less posts required, there is less recovery time and improved patient satisfaction. In fact, with an All on Four implant, patients report to have an increased speech and ability to eat, while gaining a smile that looks natural for improved self-confidence.

What are the Benefits of All on Four Implants?

In addition to a shorter recovery time and a realistic smile, All on Four implants offer many additional benefits. In addition to no slipping or discomfort like that of dentures, the implants are more cost effective than other forms of implants. Plus, they require less time-consuming treatment plans for a faster treatment process.

All of Four implants are often the ideal choice for those who aren’t candidates for other implants. Unlike standard implants, the All on Four implants use two tilted posterior implants, allowing longer implants to be used. This allows them to be used when there is minimal bone volume without compromising the stability. This adds to decreasing the treatment time because there’s less need for bone grafting procedures.

In some cases, depending on the restorative dentist you choose, you can gain the amazing benefits of All on Four implants in one visit. Since the procedure is less invasive than other forms of implants, you can walk out of the dental office with a completely new smile.
