All on 4 Implants: a Comprehensive Look at a Breakthrough Surgical Protocol, Part 4

By Jack De Richards Subscribe to RSS | March 26th 2012 | Views:

It has been the aim of this four-part article series to present you with a comprehensive understanding of All on 4 implants; what they are, how they work and how they compare with that archaic tooth replacement technology, removable dentures. In this article, the final of the series, we shall take a look at the difference between the All on 4 implant protocol and traditional dental implant techniques and how this can save patients tens of thousands of dollars on oral rehabilitation.

All on 4 Implants and Traditional Implant Techniques

•All on 4 Implants: Complete Oral Rehabilitation in a Single Day

Prior to the innovation of All on 4 implants, edentulous patients (those without a single original adult tooth left) and near-edentulous patients were looking at needing as many as six, eight or ten implants per jaw in order to have their smiles restored. Should these patients require rehabilitation of the upper and lower dental arch, this could equate to as many as 20 dental implants! This kind of surgery is not only very traumatic for the patient in terms of recovery, but it also proven to be unnecessary to successfully replace a full set of teeth. Additionally, traditional implant techniques and procedures (like bone grafting) were generally drawn out over the course of a year to a year-and-a-half.

All on 4 implants, as the name suggests, are capable of giving patients a brand new set of immediately functional, non-removable teeth in a single surgery, which can be completed in a single day! This is made possible by the careful placement and precise angulation of four dental implants per jaw, which in turn are used to permanently support a prosthetic dental bridge in the mouth. With only one surgery and four dental implants, as opposed to multiple operations and as many as 20 implants, patients are looking at saving, on average, a staggering $25,000 on oral rehabilitation!

•All on 4 Implants: Complete Oral Rehabilitation without Bone Grafting Surgery

Another way All on 4 implants surpass traditional surgical protocol is in their ability to bypass the need for bone grafting surgery. Tooth loss and denture-wearing results in the loss of bone volume in the bone. Without the tooth roots to keep the jaw bone stimulated and alive and healthy, this tissue atrophies, just like a muscle in the body does when it goes without exercise. All on 4 implants replace this fundamental source of stimulation, which in turn prevents atrophy and bone loss. Traditional tooth replacement technologies, such as removable dentures and dental bridges, do nothing to promote the health of the underlying jaw bone. As a result, patients were previously looking at the need for bone grafting surgery before they could have dental implants placed.

Bone grafting augments and encourages the growth of healthy bone tissue in the jaw so that it can support implants. However, it’s not only expensive for the patient; it’s also invasive, painful and requires a month of healing before the jaw is ready to support dental implants. All on 4 implants are carefully positioned and angulated in the jaw so as to reap maximum support from the existing tissue, in most cases, regardless of the advanced degree of bone loss. Consequently, All on 4 implants are almost always able to give patients a brand new set of non-removable teeth without the need for bone grafting surgery beforehand. This means that oral rehabilitation is possible in a single surgery, in a single day and this saves patients time, inconvenience, discomfort and money.

A Final Note on All on 4 Implants

If you are edentulous, or are facing an immediate future of edentulism, then perhaps it’s time you considered a more sophisticated and long term tooth replacement solution to your oral problems. All on 4 implants will not only see you eating, speaking and smiling with confidence, but also enjoying a much higher quality of life!
