All-on-4 Q & A
What is All-on-4?
All-on-4 is a patented dental implant system that replaces an entire span of missing teeth. The restoration portion of the implants are secured by only four implanted posts for each span, either top or bottom. This enables a full-mouth restoration that will last a lifetime, using only eight implants.
The All-on-4 system can even work for those who lack adequate bone tissue for traditional individual implants. Because the system can be tilted, your periodontal specialist can make use of your remaining bone tissue to anchor the implants, instead of performing bone grafting to build up missing bone tissue.
What are the benefits of All-on-4 over traditional dentures?
Not long ago, traditional dentures were the only option to replace more than a few missing teeth. While dentures could restore your smile and address facial sinking brought on by tooth loss, they were an imperfect solution.
Advancements in technology have vastly improved dentures, and modern versions offer a better fit and a more natural appearance. Dentures remain troublesome, however, when it comes to fit and function.
Dentures also do nothing to keep your underlying bone tissue healthy. Because All-on-4 dental implants are secured directly into your bone tissue, they stimulate that bone, keeping it healthy and preventing bone loss.
All-on-4 creates a beautiful restoration that is also easy to care for. You’ll simply brush your teeth and gums normally to remove plaque and bacteria.
Isn’t All-on-4 an expensive treatment?
The initial expense of All-on-4 might seem high at first glance. However, when viewed from a long term perspective, this treatment option makes financial sense.
To begin, All-on-4 is a permanent solution, and once in place will never need to be replaced. Traditional dentures will require repairs and eventual replacement, bringing on new expenses every few years.
All-on-4 is also significantly less expensive than having a full set of individual dental implants. You’ll receive a transformed smile, as well as the ability to eat and speak normally, on the day of your procedure. The process takes just an hour or two.
El Paso Periodontics & Implant Specialists also offers financing options, including payment plans and Care CreditⓇ to help you fit dental care into your budget. Just ask about your options during your visit, which you can book online or by phone in just minutes.
