All-on-Four: Are You Making the Right Choice for Dental Implants in Hamilton?

Posted on: September 1, 2016

All-on-FourIf you are in need of dental implants in Hamilton, you may be wondering if All-on-Four implants are the right type for you. While All-on-Four implants are easier, more convenient, and arguably stronger than traditional single dental implants, there are a few assessments that will need to be taken before determining whether or not your dental structure can benefit from this unique and desirable procedure. Traditionally, patients who were missing multiple teeth would have to receive dental implants one at a time. The dental implant process ended up taking longer and being more drawn-out, requiring several visits to the dentist’s office. Today, All-on-Four implants are available for the unique patient who has a healthy mouth and is in need of several teeth to have an attractive and functioning mouth once again.

Who All-on-Four is For

Some people who wear removable complete dentures are completely happy with their dentures, while others constantly struggle with finding the right look and fit. Some people just find the upkeep of dentures frustrating. If you are one of these individuals, All-on-Four is an excellent alternative for you. While receiving enough single dental implants to have a functioning mouth (6-8 implants) is always a possibility, it can quickly become a burden on your finances and time. With All-on-Four, strategically placed implants can support an entire arch (upper or lower) of prosthetic teeth so you can have a full mouth of teeth with fewer visits and at a more reasonable price.

All-on-Four is right for you, if you are in need of:

  • A more comfortable set of teeth
  • A better function from your mouth
  • A more attractive and realistic-looking set of teeth
  • Jaw bone and facial shape preservation
  • A permanent replacement for multiple missing teeth
  • More variety in your diet
  • A completely dependable set of teeth

How All-on-Four Works

During an All-on-Four procedure, two implants will be placed where your front incisors once were and the second set of two implants will be placed on either side of the first two. The second set of implants is inserted at a 45-degree angle so that they offer more stability for a multitude of prosthetic teeth. With this procedure, only four implants are required to support a whole arch of teeth— which equals about 12 to 14 teeth. With All-on-Four, you can receive a whole arch of teeth at a lower cost than what you would spend getting six to eight traditional dental implants.

For a tooth replacement option with a 95 percent success rate, consider receiving dental implants through an All-on-Four procedure. We want to help you get the most out of life, and a full set of teeth can be an incredible benefit. To learn more about this procedure and if you qualify to receive it, call or visit our Hamilton office.
