New technologies used in dentistry are constantly evolving. This is also true for dental implants, which have largely benefited from technological advances in the medical field in recent years.
One of the newest advances in the field is the development of a new dental implant technique: All-on-4 technology, also known as All-on-four or AO4. This method is highly prized for its practicality and effectiveness for both maxillofacial surgeons and patients.
Here is all you need to know about All-on-4 dental implants.
What is the All-on-4 dental implant technique?
All-on-4 is a new dental implant technique.
More specifically, this method consists of placing 4 fixed dental implants in the jawbone. A temporary dental prosthesis is then installed so the implants can be securely fixed in the bone. Once this step is done, the permanent dental prosthesis can be placed.
In addition, most patients do not need a bone graft to benefit from this type of implant. In fact, posterior implants are placed at an angle of 30 to 45 degrees. This is therefore not a problem for patients with little bone mass in the jaw.
Who can benefit from All-on-4 dental implants?
The All-on-4 technique is ideal for people who have already lost all their upper and/or lower teeth. It can also be considered for patients with damaged teeth that need to be replaced. In fact, the teeth can be extracted on the same day as the placement of dental implants.
Advantages of All-on-4 dental implants
It is not for nothing that the All-on-4 technique has taken dental implants by storm. This technique is beneficial for several reasons. Here are a few of them.
- Bone grafting is rarely required for AO4 implants
- Simplified dental implant procedure
- Easy to maintain
- New and durable set of teeth
- Impressive success rate (over 95% success rate)
- More affordable than traditional methods
- The patient comes out of the procedure more confident with a new smile
All-on-4 dental implants cost
Like any dental implant treatment, the placement of All-on-4 implants should be seen as an investment that will have a great positive impact on your life. The cost of these implants may vary based on the patient’s specific situation.
There are different financing options available to help you pay for your implants for a fixed denture. For example, did you know that you can spread the payment for your implants over several months, as if you were buying a car? Clinique Evoro offers DentoPlan as a financial program for dental care.
In addition, Quebec and Canadian tax authorities offer medical expense tax credits that would not have been reimbursed by an insurer. You can therefore take advantage of a reduced cost for your implants.
