Dental implants are a life-changing event. Not only do they replace your natural teeth, they involve surgery and an investment. Because of this, many people want to (and should) know everything they can about them before they commit to getting them.
The revolutionary All-on-4 dental implant system is no different, as it uses four dental implants to replace your entire set of teeth. If you’ve considered All-on-4, here are some common questions people ask, along with their answers.
Am I a candidate for All-on-4?
The best part about dental implants and All-on-4 is that practically everyone can get them. As long as your mouth is in fairly good health and you have enough bone to support the implant, you’re a candidate. Even age isn’t a factor when it comes to All-on-4.
Does the All-on-4 procedure involve a lot of pain?
With All-on-4, you usually use IV sedation. The IV sedation will leave you in an almost unconscious state, meaning you won’t feel any pain. In fact, many patients don’t even remember the procedure after IV sedation. In the end, the staff will do everything they can to ensure the experience is as comfortable as possible for the patient.
How long is the process?
After your initial consult, Dr. Chris evaluates your bone structure and teeth using 3D imaging and software for planning. The surgery day is complete in one day and you leave with a new set of teeth. A permanent set of teeth is attached after your healing is complete.
How much does All-on-4 cost?
Thanks to advancements in technology, dental implant systems like All-on-4 are more affordable than ever. There are also a wide variety of payment plans and other financing options, making All-on-4 financially feasible for practically everyone.
Do All-on-4 teeth look and feel natural?
Unlike dentures, All-on-4 teeth are just as functional and beautiful as your natural teeth. You can eat whatever you want, smile confidently and look more youthful than ever. Best of all, you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of All-on-4 forever.
