All-On-4 Dentures: A Permanent Dental Solution
In 1998, Dr. Paulo Malo successfully treated the first patient with the All-On-4 treatment concept. Since then, hundreds of thousands of patients have received this treatment to restore their smiles and improve their lives. All-On-4 implant-supported dentures are a minimally invasive solution for restoring a full arch of teeth. This treatment is graftless, cost-efficient, and can provide you with a fixed full-arched prosthesis on the day of your implant surgery.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are anchored in your mouth with four strategically placed implants, providing a permanent and highly stable solution for your smile. Your restoration will be functional immediately following your treatment, which will improve your quality of life with regards to oral function, aesthetics, speech, and self-esteem.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of several components – an implant post, an abutment, and a restoration. The implant is made out of a biocompatible material (usually titanium) and is surgically placed in the jawbone. The implant post then fuses to the bone to establish a stable foundation for your new teeth. An abutment is placed on the post so that the restoration can be attached to the implant. Dental implants are highly durable, and are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. When properly cared for, they can last a lifetime.
Are All-On-4 Dentures Right for Me?
Dental implants are recommended for anyone who is suffering from tooth loss or serious tooth decay. Implant-supported dentures are recommended when you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, and for individuals who have difficulty wearing dentures due to high levels of tenderness or soreness.
Almost everyone is a candidate for dental implants, and we recommend scheduling a consultation with our dentists to discuss if implants are right for you.
Benefits of All-On-4 Dentures
All-On-4 implant supported dentures are highly durable, and mimic both the appearance and function of your natural teeth. They are more comfortable than traditional dentures, and more cost-effective than replacing every tooth in your smile with single-tooth implants. However, the best benefit of this treatment may be the fact that you can complete your entire treatment in just one appointment.
How Much Do They Cost?
The cost of treatment is understandably a concern for many patients. Implant-supported dentures are more expensive than traditional dentures. However, they are also intended to be a permanent restoration. This makes your treatment a worthwhile investment. Aesthetic Dentistry Associates also works hard to provide our treatments at fair prices, and we offer several financial options to work with your budget.
