All on 4 Dental Implants
What are All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-on-4 dental implants are a dental solution available to people who are missing all of their teeth, often referred to as ‘edentulous.’ In particular, these implants can offer a better fitting and more functional solution than traditional dentures that simply fit over top of the gums. All-on-4 dental implants are often recommended for people with poor bone volume, because they can be inserted in a way that reduces or eliminates the need for bone grafting.
How do these Implants Differ from Regular Implants?
The All-on-4 implant technique is unique because only 4 - 5 implants are used for every arch, whereas most use 6 or more implants per arch. With this dental technique, the implants are placed in the bone on an angle, allowing dentures to fit as securely as they do with other implants, but without the need for bone grafting, in most cases.
By reducing or eliminating the need for grafting, this dental technique can make the implant process more efficient and affordable than other types of implants. Of course, whether or not this is a viable dental solution for you is something you will need to determine with the help of your denturist.
