What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants and When Are They the Right Choice?

Jan 20, 2021 | Advanced Dental Treatments

You’ve been having a hard time chewing, but you’re not crazy about spending the rest of your life wearing dentures. What options do you have?

The good news is that you may be a candidate for all-on-4 implants.

Getting all-on-4 dental implants is an easy and effective way to promote your dental health. Here’s a rundown on what these implants are and their benefits.

Let’s get started!

What Exactly Is a Dental Implant?

A single implant is an artificial tooth used to replace a missing tooth.

The bottom portion of an implant is essentially a titanium screw, which serves as the root of your artificial tooth. This screw goes inside your jawbone where your tooth is missing.

Then, after a dentist places the screw in your jawbone, they’ll attach a tooth-shaped cap, called a crown, to it.

In the end, you’ll have what looks and feels like a real tooth. And your dental implant will function as an actual tooth.

What Are All-on-4 Implants?

Multiply a single dental implant by four and you’ll have all-on-4 implants — or four implants that all go on a single arch of your mouth.

Now let’s say that you’re missing all of your teeth. In this situation, you would get a total of eight implants in your mouth — four on the top and four on the bottom.

What’s great about all-on-4 implants is that with them, you don’t need a single implant for every missing tooth in your mouth. Instead, just four implants along each arch will get you a completely restored smile.

Are You Eligible for All-on-4 Implants?

All-on-4 implants are designed for people who are struggling with dentures. However, the implants are also indicated for people who are missing all or the majority of their teeth.

With these implants, you can avoid the hassle and discomfort associated with wearing dentures. In addition, these implants will allow you to easily eat the foods you’ve always loved. For instance, you can bite into raw vegetables, meat, or apples without worry.

All in all, patients enjoy these implants because they are natural-looking and beautiful. In addition, they are made to last a lifetime, so you can rest assured that your implants will stand the test of time.
