All-on-4 – Casper

Replace an Entire Arch of Teeth

If you’ve suffered from extensive tooth loss, it may sound overwhelming to replace all of your teeth. However, with all-on-4 dental implants, you don’t need to replace every tooth individually to get your whole smile back. Instead, a full denture can be supported with four strategically placed dental implants. You can also avoid much of the waiting and healing that’s necessary with an implant denture. Sometimes – you can even replace an entire arch of teeth on the same day! To find out if all-on-4 is right for you, give us a call to schedule your consultation!

How Do All-on-4 Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants come with incredible benefits that you can’t get from dental bridges and traditional dentures. This is because dental implants replace the roots of the missing teeth, allowing for additional stability and the prevention of jawbone deterioration. To be a good candidate for this tooth replacement option, you must have a sufficient jawbone to support the replacement teeth. One of the things that makes all-on-4 dental implants different from an implant denture is that it only requires four strategically placed dental implants to provide maximum support. This is due to the implants being placed at precise angles in the thickest areas of the jawbone to minimize the need for a bone graft. Once the implants are placed in the jaw, abutments are attached and used to secure your denture into place.

Am I a Candidate for All-on-4 Dental Implants?

Most people who have lost all of their teeth on one or both arches are good candidates for all-on-4. If you have extensive bone loss due to your missing teeth, you may still be eligible because of the strategic angle placement used for this procedure. Patients who would normally need bone grafting may not need it for all-on-4. Just keep in mind that with any type of tooth replacement, maintaining excellent oral hygiene is a must! You should also stay away from unhealthy habits, including smoking and using other tobacco products.

Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants

You can experience a variety of exciting benefits with all-on-4 dental implants. Here are some of the most prominent advantages:

  • Fixed: All-on-4 dental implants are fixed in the mouth, so they can be brushed just like natural teeth. You don’t need to take out your denture to clean your smile.
  • Feel Natural: All-on-4 dental implants feel much more natural than traditional dentures. Once you adjust to them, they shouldn’t feel too different from your natural teeth.
  • Bite Force: All-on-4 dental implants restore more chewing power than traditional dentures. This allows patients to enjoy a full, nutritious diet without restrictions.
  • Prevents Bone Loss: Unlike traditional dentures, all-on-4 helps to prevent the jawbone from shrinking. This will help you to maintain a more youthful appearance.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants have many things in common with traditional implant dentures. Here are some of the key differences between them:

  • Number of Implants: Implant dentures require up to 8 dental implants to support them, making them higher in cost.
  • Bone Grafting: All-on-4 dental implants are less likely to require bone grafting.
  • Quicker: It can take many months to get implant dentures. All-on-4 dental implants often allow patients to show off their new smile on the same day!
