What Is All-On-4?
All-On-4 is an implant denture system that uses just four dental implants to replace an entire arch of teeth. An implant denture is like a traditional denture, but instead of just resting on your gums, the denture is secured with dental implants. This helps it stay in place, keeps pressure off your gums, and lets you bite and chew normally.
The secret to the All-On-4 system is that it is thoroughly engineered to balance bite forces on the implant denture. This lets you get maximum function with a minimum of dental implants.
Benefits of All-On-4 Implant Dentures
In the last decade, All-On-4 implant dentures have grown dramatically in popularity. That is in large part because of the numerous benefits that this system offers.
- Replaces all your teeth in one procedure
- Doesn’t require a bone graft
- Looks attractive
- Looks natural
- Functions like natural teeth
- Has a high success rate
- Is durable
With All-On-4, it usually takes just one procedure to replace all your teeth. This can include extracting the last of your natural teeth if necessary. Partly this is because the All-On-4 system is designed to maximize your natural bone and rarely requires a bone graft. In some cases, however, we might recommend dividing the upper and lower denture procedures over two visits.
All-On-4 implant dentures look attractive and natural. For many people, this is the best smile of their lives, and they’re happy to show off their smile for the first time.
With the implants securing the dentures, they function just like natural teeth. Bite and chew normally, and never give up your favorite foods.
All-On-4 implant dentures have a very high success rate. In a recent study looking at implant dentures after 10-18 years, the long-term success rate was 99%.
But despite all these benefits, All-On-4 is a relatively affordable approach to tooth replacement. It’s much less expensive to replace your teeth than to use one implant per tooth or even utilize a different implant system.
