All-on-4 Dental Implants – Lincoln, NE

The Most Efficient Way to Replace Missing Teeth

Above the gums, you need to have dental prosthetics that replace each individual tooth so that you can maintain a natural look. Under the gum surface is a different story. In order to keep your full dentures in place, you don’t need to have an implant for every missing tooth. In fact, a modern technique called All-on-4 entail attaching your dentures to four strategically placed implants in the jaw to provide the stability needed.

How do All-on-4 implants work?

It may seem crazy that just four posts could keep an entire arch of teeth firmly in place, but it’s true! Typically, two posts are positioned near where the outside incisors are located. The other two are closer to the back of the mouth, but instead of being placed vertically, they are placed at a 45-degree angle so that they integrate with the denser bone toward the front of your jaw. As a result, these tilted implants are able to support the implants sufficiently to provide the biting power necessary for dentures in the long term.

Am I a candidate for All-on-4 implants?

In many cases, those who qualify for dental implants in general will likely be eligible for All-on-4 implants, but some cases may require more than just four implants. For example, if you have certain medical conditions, having at least two additional dental implants could provide the extra support your dentures need. To find out if you are a good candidate for All-on-4 treatment, schedule a consultation with one of our skilled dentists. They can perform a thorough exam, answer your questions, and create a personalized treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

What are the benefits of All-on-4 implants?

Choosing All-on-4 dental implants gives you many advantages, including the following:

  • Less oral surgery to undergo. With fewer implants, you can get the job done with minimum amount of time in the dentist’s chair.
  • No need for a bone graft. The jaw bone becomes thinner and less dense toward the back, so angling the posterior posts to anchor to the front part of the jaw often eliminates the need for a bone graft.
  • Less treatment and recovery time. Without additional oral surgery or a bone graft, you can get your smile restored sooner and more efficiently.
  • Lower cost. Fewer implants means less money.

Should I choose All-on-4 or traditional implants?

Although the concept is fundamentally the same between traditional implants and All-on-4 implants, one obvious difference is that All-on-4 includes the minimum number of dental implants to retain your dentures by angling the posterior posts. Although this method seems to provide everything you could ever want in restoring your smile after total tooth loss, it may or may not be the treatment you should choose. Again, our dentists can provide the insights you may need to make a more confident decision.
