All-on-4 vs. Conventional Implants

All-on-4 vs. Conventional Implants

Dental and oral health is undoubtedly an issue that everyone cares about. We all wish to have healthy and aesthetic white and straight teeth. Modern dentistry has developed a lot in order to keep up with technology and offer patients alternative treatments. The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is one of them and it has become quite popular recently as being suitable for even patients with complete tooth loss.

All-on-4 application, which has been developed in the last decade and replaced conventional dental implants in a short time, stands out as a faster treatment option. It is done within a single day, in a single session. For a standard traditional dental implant procedure, 6 or 8 implants are required to support a fixed bridge. On the other hand, only four implants are sufficient for an All-on-4 treatment as the name suggests: two in the anterior part of the upper jaw and two in the posterior part of the lower jaw. Artificial teeth are placed on these screws after they are installed. Thus, you don’t have to wait for months for the screws to fuse the jaw and visit your dentist again and again as in the conventional method. The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is also a less costly option than standard implant procedures. This method will save both time and money.

Aside from providing faster recovery compared to the traditional method, the biggest advantage of the All-on-4 implant is that it can be applied to almost everyone. Patients who were completely edentulous or did not have sufficient bone quality couldn’t consider getting an implant treatment. However, All-on-4 treatment offers a solution for these patients as well. In short, any healthy individual can benefit from this treatment, which also does not have an upper age limit. Just bear in mind that patients who don’t smoke, take care of their oral hygiene with healthy gums and bone structure are more likely to be better candidates.

Don’t forget that tooth the loss problem is not something to ignore. Although you may think that tooth loss is just an aesthetic problem, it is actually more serious than this. Even a single tooth loss may cause advanced teeth loss in the future if it’s not treated in time. It is also possible to have gingivitis, bad breath, and tooth decay problems due to tooth loss.
