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