In our previous article posts on All on 4 implants, we provided an overview of the surgical procedure involved in their placement as well as how this revolutionary technique for oral rehabilitation is almost always capable of bypassing the need for lengthy, expensive and painful bone grafting surgery. In this, the third installment of a four part series, we shall be looking at the benefits and advantages of All on 4 implants over traditional dental implant protocol when it comes to the treatment of edentulous (toothless) and near-edentulous patients.
All on 4 Implants and Traditional Surgical Placement Protocol Prior to the conception of All on 4 implants by European implantologist, Dr. Paulo Malo, the road to oral rehabilitation using traditional surgical placement protocol was one that often involved countless consultations with oral surgeons, multiple surgeries, painful bone grafting and as long as 18 months before a patient could eat, smile and speak with confidence. The innovation of All on 4 implants completely revolutionized the fields of fixed oral rehabilitation and dental implantology, first and foremost, by its ability to almost always bypass the need for bone grafting. After placement in specific locations and precise angulations of the four dental implants in regions of the jaw that naturally contain a greater volume of atrophy resistant bone tissue, qualified prosthodontists are able to secure a customized and non-removable prosthetic dental bridge in the mouthâ€Ś all in a single surgery, in a single day and almost never needing bone grafting beforehand. Benefits and Advantages of All on 4 Implants Same Day Solution: By avoiding the need for bone grafting surgery, All on 4 implants enable patients to receive same-day solutions to oral problems that have been plaguing them for years. Fewer Dental Implants: Traditional dental implant techniques frequently require as many as 20 implants for complete oral rehabilitation. All on 4 implants, as the name suggests only need 8 for both the upper and lower jaw. Single Surgery: All on 4 implants typically requires a single surgery for placement. Traditional techniques often call for multiple surgeries owing to the need for bone grafting as well as a much greater number of dental implants. Less Expensive Solution: Owing to the fact that All on 4 implants only require a single surgery and substantially fewer implants, they come in at a much lower price than traditional implant techniques. All on 4 implants can save patients tens of thousands of dollars or even more on complex cases. Immediately Functional and Aesthetic Results: With All on 4 implants, patients are free to return home to a light meal and a good nightâ€™s rest on the day of the procedure. Many patients even return to work the very next day!
The Benefits of All on 4 Implants: In Summary Owing to the ability of All on 4 implants to almost always avoid the need for bone grafting surgery, this surgical placement protocol has come to be regarded as a breakthrough in modern dental science. With a lower price tag, fewer dental implants needed, a single surgery and substantially less pain, discomfort, expenses, inconvenience and hassle, itâ€™s no wonder that All on 4 implants have developed a reputation of this magnitude!
