All on 4 dental implants herald a technological step forward in the process of oral rehabilitation. It offers a significant number of advantages over traditional dental implants, which also represent a surgical milestone in the treatment of missing teeth.
At Perth Dental Rooms, edentulous (tooth loss) patients can take advantage of this modern dental implant procedure, widely regarded as a more affordable and less invasive surgical option.
Compared to traditional implant methods, the All on Four is a comprehensive solution that caters to a broader range of tooth loss candidates. If you are suffering from severe bone loss or tooth loss as a result of chronic periodontal disease, All-on-Four may be the life-changing, tooth replacement therapy that you’ve been searching for.
What is All-on-4 dental implants?
The All On Four is a dental implant technique developed by Dr Paulo Malo.
As the name suggests, the technique requires the use of only four implants to support a fully customised dental prosthesis (full set of artificial teeth).
This is made possible through the ingenious positioning and angulated insertion of the four dental implants.
Why choose All-on-4?
Dental implants are generally recommended for patients who have lost most, if not all of their teeth to gum disease and require replacing a full arch of teeth.
Prior to the implementation of All on Four, as many as 10 dental implants have to be inserted per jaw to hold in place a new set of replacement teeth. That means the oral rehabilitation of both the upper and lower jaw would require 20 implants.
By comparison, the All on Four method requires only 4 implants and, in most cases the procedure can be completed in one day – hence the moniker Same Day Implants.
Considering that each dental implant costs a few thousand dollars, All on Four already represents massive savings. Instead of multiple implant placement surgeries, the single-day All on Four approach reduces up to 18 months in surgical and healing times. Add to that all of the associated costs including consultations, attending surgeries and taking time off work, it is not difficult to appreciate the benefits of choosing the All-on-4 option.
With All on Four, the implants are strategically placed in regions of the jaw that contain a greater volume of atrophy-resistant bone tissue. As such, it dispenses with the need for the painful, costly and time-consuming bone grafting surgery. A bone grafting procedure alone takes 9-12 months to heal.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of the All-on-4 technique is that it retains all the benefits of conventional implants. Patients receive a full set of artificial teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. They provide the same solid and stable structure for your artificial teeth. Unlike removable dentures, implant-supported teeth do not accidentally shift or move in your mouth.
This unprecedented dental implant technique has helped numerous patients receive complete oral rehabilitation in as little as a single day. All on Four implants are known to last a lifetime.
