Many dentists push for full-arch dental implants which can be costly. That is why we here in Ocala, Florida offer All-on-4®, a much more cost-effective full-arch replacement for those who cannot afford the typical full-arch implants. What makes you a potential candidate for All-on-4®? What are the benefits? Here is some starting information on what All-on-4® can do for you!
A Hybrid Model To Full-Arch Replacement
All-on-4® is a fantastic, non-grafting method for replacing lost, damaged, or decaying teeth. This is a solution for a total set of teeth replacement, the full-arch of either your bottom or upper set of teeth.
How All-on-4® works is by mounting a hybrid denture on 4 posts. This requires a minor amount of surgery as these posts are set directly into the bone in order to ensure stability. This procedure only takes one day to do which makes it a simple and easy choice for many looking to have a full-arch replacement.
This form of implant is also cheaper than the single-tooth full-arch replacement method as mentioned prior. With each single-tooth replacement costing a minimum of $600, usually much higher than this though, replacing a full mouth of teeth could easily cost over $40,000 dollars. All-on-4® halves this price making it far more cost-saving.
According to current data, around ninety-five percent of all people who have had All-on-4® implants are satisfied with their decision, with data suggesting these are people who have been asked up to three years after their procedure. Current data also suggests that these implants the average follow-up on these implants is around seven and a half years for those who maintain regular and good oral hygiene habits.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for All-on-4®?
Generally speaking, anyone in need of a full-arch replacement makes a good candidate for the All-on-4® solution. Those who have lost teeth, damaged teeth, decaying teeth, and jaw bone loss are still eligible for this treatment.
Although, there are some structural requirements for All-On-4®. If your jawbone has decayed too much over the years, you may require additional treatments such as bone grafting to make your jaw ready for an All-On-4® solution. Smoking can also impact your candidacy. This is because smokers have a higher risk of implant failure due to smoking’s impact on the gums over time.
Overall, All-on-4® is a fantastic solution for those looking to improve their overall oral health with a long-lasting solution. Especially for those who have been using dentures and are not satisfied with the results, All-on-4® makes a great next step as it provides the familiarity of dentures without the fear of them falling out or shifting.
