All-on-4® Treatment Concept
Dentist San Antonio
As with any field of medicine, dentistry has become a hotbed for new and wildly successful new treatments and technologies. Dental implant technology is just one such field and the All-on-4 Treatment Concept is just one of those new treatments. Developed through Nobel Biocare, the All-on-4 has revolutionized dental implants and their applications. It has significantly broadened the available patient base who may have at one time been told they were unable to have implants due to bone mass limitations.
It has been around for decades, proving a great artificial tooth solution. They are invaluable to those patients who are unable to have traditional dental implants. Far less expensive than traditional implants, a single appointment is all that is needed for patients to have a new set of artificial teeth. Contact us today to come in for your first visit and talk about this amazing procedure with our dentist, Joshua Austin, DDS.
Benefits of the All-on-4 Treatment Concept
One of the most significant aspects of the treatment concept is the lower cost. Getting traditional dental implants can be quite costly and involve multiple appointments over a significant period of time. Those cost-conscious patients will be surprised by the much lower All-on-4 cost. In addition to being less costly, the Al-on-4 also requires much less bone mass in order to support the implants. Driven into the bone at an angle rather than in a perfectly vertical position, they do not go quite as deep as traditional implants thus less bone mass is needed.
The other benefit is that it can be done in a single appointment. That is right. Gone are the multiple appointments and months of waiting between. Even if additional procedures are necessary such as tooth extraction or root canals, they will be completed in a single office visit.
Truly revolutionary in its approach, the entire process from tooth extraction to implant placement takes less than four hours. This increases the efficiency of the office and also minimizes the disruption to the patient’s schedule. With limiting the number of appointments, it also limits the expense.
Certainly, catastrophic tooth loss can impact the appearance of the patient due to the loss of supportive structure. With the All-on-4 treatment concept, those worries, and concerns are gone. Once finished, the lost supportive structure will be restored by the artificial teeth. Bone mass is considered vital to the implant process but with the All-on-4 Treatment Concept much less bone mass is needed for the procedure to be a success. At a much lower cost and finished in much less time, this treatment option seems more than suitable.
