Replacing teeth with all-on-4 dental implants is a breakthrough technique. Rather than 6-8 implants, it only uses 4 implants for a full arch replacement.
Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/24/2018 -- Bucktown Dental Associates now offers all-on-4 dental implants. The all-on-4 implants allow a full arch of teeth to be anchored to only four dental implants. Traditional treatment requires at least 6-8 implants to carry a full arch of teeth. The all on 4 dental implants offers a permanently anchored teeth replacement for patients without teeth or those with failing dentition.
Replacing teeth with the all-on-4 dental implants was invented by Dr. Paulo Malo, a Portuguese dentist, and Nobel Biocare implant company. The all-on-4 name is a trade mark for Nobel Biocare. Additionally, Nobel Biocare implants offer the best outcome when performing this kind of treatment.
With only four implants, "the all-on-4 dental implants allow a patient with severe bone resorption to have a full arch of teeth without bone grafts", says Dr. Yasser Elseweifi. The idea is to use a special dental implant placed at an angle to avoid anatomical challenges. Thereby, bone grafts for the sinus or lower jaw are not needed. Two of the implants are angled and two are kept straight. The four implants are then connected with a titanium frame. The final implant denture is built around the titanium frame.
Treatment with all on 4 implants takes several steps. After extracting the teeth, four dental implants are placed in pre-planned locations. A temporary denture is then anchored to the implants. After 4-6 months of healing, final impressions are taken. A final denture is made in the lab and tried in. The final denture is most often made of a plastic base and plastic teeth. The denture can also be made of zirconia. The zirconia denture is more durable and more esthetic. The last treatment step is to anchor the final denture to the implants.
Replacing teeth with the all-on-4 dental implants is not cheap. The average cost is $20,000. However, the benefits far exceed the treatment cost. The patient gets a full arch of teeth that is securely anchored to the jaw bone. This means more self-confidence and better enjoyment of life. Some offices offer cheaper versions of the all-on-4 dental implants. These cheaper versions often use cheap generic implants and components that do not last long and can cause bone loss and further complications.
