How All-On-4 Works
All-On-4 is a full arch restoration option. The restoration are held in place using four dental implants at specific points for support and anchor the dentures. This is a graftless full-arch solution meaning less time is needed to heal the gums and more time for you to live your life!
This is a safe, predictable, and long-term solution for replacing a whole arch of teeth. With a lifetime of 7 and a half years which is met 98% of the time and a 95% satisfaction rate, All-On-4 is a fantastic solution for those looking for an arch replacement. This option can also be performed within the same day of surgery meaning no halfway efforts are needed between procedures.
A Typical All-On-4 Procedure
How All-On-4 procedures go is nothing too strenuous. First, clearing any debris, rotted or decayed teeth, and any other obstructions from the site. Then, placing the dental implants, two directly down and two at a 45-degree angle to mimic the structures and decrease the likelihood of bone decay. Finally, the hybrid denture is placed on top to replace the missing teeth.
Whilst the site will be sensitive for a short while after the procedure, you will have a whole new set of teeth. Of course, this procedure is done whilst you are sedated by a certified anesthesiologist who will monitor your vitals throughout the whole procedure. This is to decrease the amount of pain you could experience through the procedure.
