All-On-4® Dental Implants are a permanent solution to replacing your missing teeth with only four implants. This is a fast, convenient option to restoring your smile.
What are All-On-4® dental implants?
Dr. John Vitale: All-On-4® dental implants simply means restoring a person, the upper arch or lower arch, with as little as four implants. With a full mouth restoration that’s permanent, being screwed into these implants either on top or bottom.
Who is the ideal candidate for these implants? And under what circumstances would they not be a good solution for someone?
Dr. John Vitale: Any person missing all of his or her teeth or the overwhelming majority of the teeth are candidates for All-On-4®. The people who would not benefit as quickly are those people who do not have enough bone in the areas on top or bottom that we would want to place the implants. But, it still could be done.
What is the recovery time for All-On-4® implants?
Dr. John Vitale: Oddly enough, the recovery time for All-On-4® dental implants is 24 hours.
How long do the All-On-4® implants last?
Dr. John Vitale: Generally, they should last you for a lifetime. Again, if you do not take care of your mouth and don’t do what you’re supposed to do as far as maintenance, obviously the time would be shortened. But if you’re meticulous about what you’re doing and take good care of your implants and your restoration, they’ll last you a very long time.
How much does the All-On-4® dental implant cost?
They range in price from I would say $18,000 to $30,000 per arch. It’s not cheap to do.
