At Southland Dental Care, we are committed to making sure that you get the best solution for you, so we put together this pro and con list to help you decide if All-in-4 dental implants are the right fit.
Why Choose All-on-4?
One of the main reasons to choose All-on-4 is that it is a quick procedure. The surgery itself typically takes about two hours per arch, and the immediate loading of your new teeth means that you have a fully functioning set of teeth within 24 hours. The healing time is also very low, and the process requires just one surgery and very few visits.
All-on-4 is a very simple procedure involving the placement of 4 dental implants into the jawbone to support an entire bridge of teeth. Because of this simplicity, the process has a high success rate and is minimally invasive. Additionally, the small number of implants allows for flexible placement, which means that they can be placed wherever your bone mass is the greatest, avoiding anatomical limitations. This greatly reduces, and in most cases eliminates, the need for harmful and invasive bone graft and sinus augmentation surgeries. Since the implants are eventually integrated into the bone, they even help reduce or eliminate bone resorption or atrophy.
The All-on-4 procedure minimizes disruptions to your lifestyle, even eliminating some of the inconveniences caused by dentures. Since you can care for your new teeth as you would natural teeth, the need to remove and clean your dentures nightly is a thing of the past. The high bite power of All-on-4 dental implants also eliminates the restrictions on what you eat that dentures require. Additionally, these implants are cost effective, permanent, and placed firmly in your jawbone to eliminate shifting or loosening. They eliminate the need for adhesives, and they leave your smile and speech completel
