All-on-4 Dental Implants: The Perfect Alternative to Removable Dentures
In today's digital age, you don't have to settle for anything less than perfection. If you're missing several teeth, All-on-4 dental implants will give you natural-looking replacement teeth to restore function and aesthetics. You can replace badly damaged teeth or removable dentures with All-on-4 implants to attain the perfect smile makeover.
What is the All-on-4 Technique?
The all-On-4 implant technique is used in dental practice to replace badly damaged or missing teeth. This procedure uses four dental implants embedded in the upper or lower jaw to support full arches of replacement teeth. Innovative clinics like Toronto Smile Design have refined the traditional all-on-4 procedure with digital dentistry. Your Toronto dentist can implement all-on-4 dental implants using surgical guides and advanced imaging technologies. Fully-guided all-on-4 implantation enhances predictability and guarantees transformational smile makeovers. If you have removable dentures, you can replace them with all-on-4 dental implants to improve aesthetics.
All-On-4 Dental Implants Vs. Removable Dentures
Although both all-on-4 implants and removable dentures can replace missing teeth, these dental treatments are not the same. Removable dentures are teeth replacements connected to an acrylic base that fits over your gums. You can replace an entire row of missing teeth with dentures or all-on-4 implants. But all-on-4 dental implants offer a better alternative for denture wearers.
The innovative Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental combines the all-on-4 technique with digital dentistry and advanced dental solutions, including CBCT and 3D printers. This dental implant procedure is digitally planned and guided to enhance accuracy, eliminate risks, and deliver beautiful smiles.
First, your dentist will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums. Additionally, Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental is one of a few clinics that use CBCT for evaluations to guarantee accuracy in diagnosis and treatment.
Second, your dentist will digitally plan your dental implantation procedure and create a surgical guide. Toronto Smile Design has a 3D printer and produces surgical guides in the house!
Third, your dentist will use local anesthetics before implantation to ensure the procedure is pain-free. They'll remove pieces of broken or damaged teeth to be replaced with implants. Four dental implants are strategically placed – two at the front of the jaw and two on the back of the jaw - to enhance structural strength. Your dentist relies on a surgical guide throughout the procedure, increasing efficiency and accuracy. Toronto Smile Design's guided all-on-4 implantation allows for instant placement of artificial teeth. So, you get brand-new replacement teeth in a single day!
Benefits of Switching from Removable Dentures to All-on-4 Implants
Switching from removable dentures to all-on-4 dental implants offers several advantages. Here are five reasons why you should replace your dentures with all-on-four implants:
Convenience: Denture wearers have to remove their dentures before going to bed each night. To avoid this denture problem, switch to all-on-4 dental implants. The all-on-four technique delivers permanent replacement teeth, so you won't need to worry about the inconvenience of removable dentures.
Perfect-fit: Traditional dentures fit either loosely or tightly around your gums. Loose dentures can damage your gums and healthy teeth. You can switch to all-on-4 dental implants to avoid this risk. Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental uses advanced technologies to implement fully-guided implantation. This procedure delivers custom all-on-4 implants with the perfect fit. You can eat and sleep with all-on-4 dental implants without worrying about damaging your teeth.
Aesthetics: All-on-4 implants can restore your beautiful smile better than dentures. Toronto Smile Design combines digital dentistry and the latest solutions to deliver aesthetic all-on-4 replacement teeth in a day. These custom-made all-on-4 implants mimic your natural teeth better than dentures.
Aftercare: Dentures require specialized cleaning solutions and time-consuming aftercare routines. You must soak your dentures every night in cleaning solutions. Then, use denture adhesives for deep cleaning to enhance oral health. With all-on-4 dental implants, you only need to brush and floss after meals. All-on-4 implants have minimal aftercare requirements like your natural teeth.
Cost-effective: Although dentures may seem cost-effective than all-on-4, they come with hidden costs. You'll need to invest in specialized cleaning solutions and tools. Dentures also increase the risk of tooth damage and other dental issues, which can cost you money. With all-on-4 implants, you won't need costly cleaning solutions and tools. All-on-4 dental implants also last longer than dentures. Overall, all-on-4 is cost-effective in the long run.
How much do all-on-four implants cost?
The cost of all-on-4 implants varies depending on the procedure and the number of teeth being replaced. If you're switching from dentures to all-on-4 implants, you may need a bone graft before implant placement. One denture problem is bone loss. A denture base does not fill the gap due to tooth loss. It increases the risk of bone loss and tooth shifting, complicating the implantation procedure. So, what is the average cost of all on four dental implants? On average, all-on-4 dental implants cost in Canada ranges from $20,000 to $25,000. Fortunately, most dental insurance plans cover a portion of all-on-4 implant costs. You can also search "all-on-4 dental implants cost near me" and pick a high-quality but affordable option.
How many teeth are in All-on-4?
Traditional implants provide support for a single artificial tooth. With the all-on-4 technique, four dental implants are placed strategically as anchors for a fixed prosthesis with 10 to 14 teeth. However, patients without teeth may not be eligible for all-on-4 implants. If you need more than 14 replacement teeth, your dentist can recommend all-on-6 dental implants. All-on-6 implantation embeds six dental implants on the jaw, ideal for full mouth rehabilitation.
Which are better, all-on-4 or all-on-6 dental implants?
Both all-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants are teeth replacement systems. The all-on-6 system uses six dental implants to support full arches of artificial teeth. All-on-6 dental implants are ideal for edentulous patients missing all their natural teeth. The two additional implants increase structural stability and support for extensive reconstruction or full-mouth dental implants. Your dentist can recommend all-on-4 dental implants if your jaw doesn't have the bone mass required for all-on-6. Most people are eligible for all-on-4 implants.
Does All-on-4 feel like real teeth?
All-on-4 implants are comfortable and feel like natural teeth. Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental provides a fully-guided all-on-4 implantation procedure that uses CBCT, CAD/CAM, and 3D printers. These technologies enhance design and manufacturing accuracy and deliver custom-fitted implants. You can bite, chew, and grind food with more force than implant-supported dentures and removable dentures. If you want natural-functioning teeth, replace your ill-fitting dentures with custom all-on-4 implants.
Do All-on-4 implants look natural?
Yes, they do! Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental fabricates natural-looking all-on-4 implants from porcelain. These replacement teeth mimic the colour, shade, and light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. They are indistinguishable from your natural teeth, so no one will know you're wearing a dental prosthetic. Removable dentures are also natural-looking. However, all-on-4 implants guarantee smile authenticity better than dentures.
You can rely on Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental to exploit all benefits of all-on-4 dental implants.
