5 Reasons to Choose the All-On-4 Dental Implant Concept

There are numerous reasons why more and more people are choosing the All-on-4 dental implant concept as opposed to traditional implants and dentures, but Dr. Krakora highlights the top five reasons why All-on-4 may be worth considering

5. All-On-4 Dental Implant Concept Avoids Bone Grafting

The All-on-4 dental implant concept avoids bone grafting. In the past surgeons were removing teeth, bone grafting the sockets, and performing sinus lifts in order to reestablish the bone of the jaw.Once grafting was completed, patients would have to heal 4-6 months before implants could be placed. When implants were placed, patients were then required to heal an additional 4 months before teeth were attached to the implants. Thus being said, some people would have to wait up to two years before receiving their teeth. 

4. Teeth Placed in ONE Day

With the All-on-4 concept, teeth can be placed the same day as surgery. This is called immediate load and is one of the biggest advantages for patients. Surgeons can place teeth the same day by avoiding bone grafting. This is done by placing some implants on an angle and utilizing the remaining dense bone. As a result, implants are strongly anchored and have high initial torque values

3. Only Requires 4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 only requires four implants to be placed. Traditionally, surgeons were placing 8-14 implants in the jaws to support one arch of teeth. Today, research shows that only four implants can be used if the remaining bone is dense enough.

All-on-4 is less expensive since the procedure is completed in one day (immediate load), it avoids bone grafting, and requires fewer implants.
