All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-On-4® dental implants are a solution that makes the benefits of dental implants accessible to a greater number of patients. It uses four dental implants to support a full-arch denture in a way that often allows patients who have suffered some bone atrophy to eliminate the need for a bone graft. These implants can also support a temporary restoration immediately after they have been placed, so patients never need to be without teeth. At the Mississippi Dental Center in Jackson, MS, Dr. Paula Stewart and her team can provide this life-changing treatment to qualifying candidates.
All-on-4 uses just four strategically placed implants to support a full-arch denture.
What are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?
All-On-4 dental implants deliver an array of advantages compared to alternative teeth replacement options. In addition to an appearance and functionality like that of natural teeth, implant-supported restorations are durable, reliable, and long-lasting. Because All-on-4 treatment restores a full arch of missing teeth using just four dental implants, it is a viable treatment option for many patients.
Additional benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants include:
Secure placement deep within the jawbone, ensuring the security and stability of your denture
No bone grafting necessary in many instances
Lower cost than treatment with standard dental implants
Patients can have a full set of new teeth in one day
We can help arrange CareCredit® financing, which makes it possible to pay for your treatment in low-interest and interest-free installments.
Candidacy for All-on-4 Dental Implants
Determining candidacy for All-on-4 dental implants requires a thorough examination. To qualify for treatment, you must:
Have excellent oral health, free of decay or gum disease
Be in good overall health
Additionally, certain types of medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, may disqualify an individual from the All-on-4 dental implant procedure. Patients who are taking medications that could compromise healing may also be excluded. It is important to disclose your full medical history to your dentist, ensuring a sound recommendation is made.
How the All-On-4 Dental Implant Procedure Works
All-on-4 treatment can usually be completed in one or two hours at our office:
Anesthesia is administered for patient comfort. We also offer sedation for those with dental anxiety.
The titanium implants are inserted into the jawbone. Two implants will be placed vertically in the front of the jaw, and two dental implants will be placed at forward-facing angles in the back of your jaw.
A temporary set of dentures is attached to the dental implants. During the next three to six months, the implants will integrate with the bone tissue.
Finally, the temporary dentures are replaced with a permanent denture.
Budgeting for Treatment
Dental implants are considered elective and are not covered by insurance. However, we can help arrange CareCredit® financing, which makes it possible to pay for your treatment in low-interest and interest-free installments.
