All-On-4 Dental Implants – Jupiter, FL

A Complete Smile in Just One Day

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, nothing quite compares to dental implants, but did you know that you don’t have to use one implant per lost tooth? Also sometimes called Teeth-in-a-Day, All-On-4 implants take tooth replacement to the next level for those who have suffered total tooth loss. This treatment option compensates for an entire arch of teeth using just four carefully placed implants. Interested in learning more or seeing if you make a good candidate for this procedure? Contact our team today!

How Do All-On-4 Implants Work?

All-On-4 dental implants follow a similar process as traditional implants, but it is more expedited. The placement procedure and the attachment of the restoration occur on the same day instead of months apart. Basically, small holes are put into the jawbone, where the implant posts are inserted. The back two implants in All-On-4 treatment are angled to become embedded in the densest jawbone tissue and provide instant function. The dentures are immediately bonded in place as well, completing your smile right away. Over time, new jawbone growth surrounds the implants, giving them additional stability and strength.

Am I a Candidate For All-On-4 Implants?

In order to qualify for All-On-4 implants, you need to meet certain requirements. You must be in good oral health, meaning you have no infections or decay in your mouth. Although this treatment can be performed with less jawbone tissue than normal implants, you need to still have enough to support these implants and the immediate dentures attached to them. After a thorough inspection of your oral cavity, our implant dentists in Jupiter can recommend the treatment that best suits your smile and your goals, whether it’s All-On-4 or another implant solution.

Benefits of All-On-4 Implants

If you were to replace your teeth individually with dental implants, the entire process would require a long, long time and cost an extreme amount of money. All-On-4 utilizes the minimum number of implants necessary to secure a full arch of teeth. Like traditional versions, All-On-4 implants allow the dentures to last much longer than normal dentures. Your replacement teeth are also much stronger than traditional dentures, which enables you to have a more varied, nutritious diet. On top of all the benefits of implants in general, All-On-4 implants provide a shorter treatment timeline, enabling patients sooner, although the entire healing and adjusting process can take a few months.

All-On-4 VS. Traditional Implants

Depending on your needs and goals, we may determine that traditional implants are more likely to succeed or last longer. In other words, having 6 or more implants is preferable. Then again, All-On-4 is a great option for many patients. Again, during your consultation, we will consider all your available replacement choices and recommend the one that can help you regain your best, strongest smile.

All-on-4 FAQs

Before you get All-on-4 in Jupiter to replace your entire smile from the roots up, you probably have a few questions or concerns. Our team is always happy to help you find the answers you’re looking for so that you can make smart choices about your smile. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve received about the All-on-4 procedure. Is there anything else you want to know? Reach out to our practice today!

Does All-on-4 Hurt?

You should experience little to no discomfort during the All-on-4 procedure; your mouth will be numbed at the beginning of the surgery, and we have various forms of sedation available to keep you comfortable. After your implants have been placed and the numbness has worn off, you’ll probably notice some swelling and soreness. It should only last a few days, and you can keep it under control by taking over-the-counter pain medication and applying a cold pack to the area.

If the pain you experience after All-on-4 surgery never seems to go away or grows severe, that is not normal. Call us immediately to let us know about your symptoms; if necessary, we can schedule an appointment to see if there has been a complication, such as an infection.

What Can I Eat After Surgery?

With the All-on-4 technique, your teeth will be strong and stable enough to handle most foods right away. That said, you will need to stay away from anything hard, brittle, or chewy for at least 6 to 10 weeks. It’s generally recommended that you stick to softer foods that require less chewing until your mouth has completely recovered from implant surgery. If you’re ever uncertain about what you can and can’t eat, feel free to reach out to our practice to ask.

What is the Success Rate for the All-on-4 Procedure?

As with any dental implant treatment, the success rate for All-on-4 is around 98%. In other words, the procedure is extremely reliable, and you can expect the results to last a long time. Of course, implant failure is still possible, and our team will take steps to avoid it. We will carefully evaluate the quality of the bone throughout your jaw so that we can be absolutely sure that the posts are placed in the correct areas.

How Much Does the All-on-4 Procedure Cost?

The cost for All-on-4 can vary depending on several factors. For example, if there are any teeth left in your mouth that need to be extracted before your implants can be placed, then that will add to the final cost. During your initial implant consultation, we will give you an estimate of how much you can expect to pay for All-on-4. We’ll also help you find ways to make the treatment as affordable as possible. For example, if you have dental insurance, your plan might not cover the cost of implant surgery, but it could still help pay for the final restoration.
