Benefits of All-on-4
All-on-4 has become a prevalent procedure because it offers many benefits, including:
- Replace an entire arch of teeth in one procedure
- Get replacement teeth on the day of surgery
- No need for a bone graft in most cases
- High success rate
- Fully functional teeth
- Attractive smile
- Numerous options for the final restoration
- Long-lasting restorations
- Cost-effective treatment
With the All-on-4 treatment, you will replace an entire arch of teeth in one simple procedure, allowing you to get teeth on the same day as your surgery. You never need to be without teeth. Most people don’t need a bone graft with All-on-4, so that’s another surgery you don’t need for this procedure.
The results of All-on-4 are good. The dental implant success rate is as good as or better than single implants. About 98% of implants are successful, and almost 100% of dental bridges are initially successful. You’ll get fully functional teeth that look attractive. You can choose whether you want ceramic or acrylic teeth for your final restoration. You can also decide whether you want your final restoration to be removable or fixed.
All dental implants can last a lifetime, but the restoration (crown or bridge) might not. With All-on-4, studies that are nearly 20 years long showed that about 99% of All-on-4 restorations survived.
All-on-4 is also a relatively cost-effective approach to dental implants. You save money because you have few implants, don’t need a bone graft, and can choose cost-saving options for your bridge.
