What is All-on-4?

All-on-4 dental implants are the perfect hybrid solution for patients that have a substantial number of missing teeth but would like a replacement option that is more comfortable and secure than dentures. With All-on-4 dentures, patients are able to bite, chew, and smile with confidence.

All-on-4 implant placement involves titanium rods being installed into the jawbone of a patient. As the name implies, there are four rods that are placed. From there, abutments are added that hold the dentures in place. The implants are a permanent installation, and they anchor the hybrid dentures in place securely. If the dentures ever need to be adjusted or replaced, removing and replacing the dentures is a simple process.

All All-on-4 dentures are custom-made to match the mouth of the specific patient. They will perfectly compliment your natural bite, and they will allow you to continue to bite, chew, and speak much like you did before.

If you have any questions about All-on-4 dentures, contact Forest Hills Dental in Forest Hills NY. We’d be happy to discuss any questions you have about All-on-4 dentures and/or other replacement options.

Why All-on-4 Dentures?

All-on-4 dentures provide a variety of different benefits. Whether you have dentures currently and are looking to upgrade or you are getting dentures for the first time, you’ll want to consider all of the benefits that come with All-on-4 dentures in Forest Hills. These include:

  •       A natural appearance
  •       No moving parts
  •       A slim shape
  •       Ease of speech
  •       Enhanced taste and flavor of your food
  •       No adhesives or pastes
  •       Greater chew and bite force
  •       Permanent placement

The contour of All-on-4 dental implants follows the natural curve of your mouth. You don’t have to worry about a bulky plate that gets in the way of you biting and chewing your favorite foods. Implants are held in place via metal rods and abutments instead of suction, so you can rest assured that your dentures will stay in place. This means less worry about suction and slipping dentures.

How Does All-on-4 Compare to Other Replacement Options?

When a patient has a missing tooth or teeth, they’ll need to consider what replacement options are available. For some, this includes dentures, dental implants, or bridges. For others, the options are more limited. All-on-4 dental implants are intended for patients that need to replace a full row of teeth (whether they be upper or lower). When this is the case, the options are dentures or dental implants. Bridges are no longer an option.

If a patient has damaged or decayed teeth, a dentist will do everything in their power to resolve the issue before considering extraction. They may be able to save some of the teeth. If this is the case, All-on-4 won’t be the best replacement option. If the teeth are beyond saving or a patient is missing all of their top or bottom teeth, All-on-4 may be the right solution.

Am I a Candidate?

Sadly, not all patients are candidates for All-on-4 implants. There are a few considerations for whether or not you are a good candidate.

One consideration is the health of your teeth and gums. You will need healthy gums and enough bone to support the implants. With that said, All-on-4 dental implants can generally be placed even if a patient has relatively significant bone loss without the need of a grafting procedure.

You are not a candidate if your dentist is able to save a significant portion of your natural teeth. If this is the case, they will install a different type of implant, partial dentures, or a bridge.

To learn more about whether or not you are a candidate for All-on-4 dentures in Forest Hills, contact Forest Hills Dental. We’ll set an appointment to look at your gums and jawbone, then let you know if all-on-4 dentures are the right replacement option for you.

What is the Cost of All-on-4 in Forest Hills?

The cost of All-on-4 dentures in Forest Hills will depend on a variety of different factors. With that said, All-on-4 often ends up saving patients money in the long run, as they are a permanent solution. While damage to the dentures and general wear and tear is a consideration when it comes to cost, the implants themselves can last a lifetime. Because of this, the prosthetic is generally the only thing that needs to be repaired.

Some other factors that will affect the cost of All-on-4 dentures in Forest Hills include sinus issues, bone loss, and the need for specialized care. Due to how individualized dental care is, the cost of All-on-4 dental implant placement will vary from patient to patient. With that said, your dentist will be able to provide you with an estimate during the initial exam and consultation. You will also want to discuss the procedure with your insurance company and see to what extent All-on-4 dentures are covered.

Aftercare

In order to ensure your amazing smile for years to come, you’ll want to take proper care of your all-on-4 dentures as well as your natural teeth and gums.

When you take care of your dentures, make sure you floss to clean around the implants. This will help to get rid of any food debris under the prosthetics. You’ll also want to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste to brush your All-on-4 dentures. Do this twice a day, every day.

If only one row of teeth is replaced by All-on-4 dentures, make sure you take proper care of your natural, remaining teeth. This means brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice a day, every day. Schedule an appointment for every six months for a professional cleaning and a checkup. Your dentist will be able to take a look at your implant dentures, along with your remaining teeth, gums, and jawbone.
