All-On-4 Q & A
Wear A Smile You Can Be Proud O
What are All-on-4 dental implants?
Individual dental implants directly anchor into your bone tissue, so they’re a strong and permanent replacement for missing teeth. For some men and women, however, individual implants are not the best treatment option. That’s where All-on-4 dental implants, sometimes called full-arch fixed implant bridges, come in.
All-on-4 implants provide a full set of both upper or lower replacement teeth anchored on just four dental implants. The end result is a beautiful smile and a strong, permanent dental restoration.
What are the advantages of All-on-4 dental implants?
One of the most obvious advantages of All-on-4 implants is value. This approach is considerably less expensive than a full set of traditional, individual implants.
All-on-4 implants also offer a permanent solution for missing teeth and are an attractive alternative to a full set of dentures. While All-on-4 dentures are an investment, they’re a great deal when you consider that dentures need to be replaced every five to seven years, whereas dental implants last a lifetime.
All-on-4 dental implants are also an option for men and women with low bone volume, and for whom individual implants might not be possible. Because there are fewer implant sites, All-on-4 implants can eliminate the need for bone grafting.
How do All-on-4 dental implants work?
The process is similar to getting individual dental implants and begins with surgical placement of four implants in your upper bone tissue and four implants in your lower bone tissue. You receive a temporary set of crowns to wear until your bone tissue fuses to the titanium implants, which can take several months.
Once healing is complete, you return to have Dr. Yampolsky permanently attach the crowns to the implants. Dr. Yampolsky works with the dental lab to create a gorgeous and natural-looking set of crowns, which are connected with a special support structure.
Once your permanent crowns are attached your customized smile is complete. Dr. Yampolsky may have you come back in after a few months for a check-up to ensure your gums are adapting to your new All-on-4 implants.
