The cost of all-on-four dental implants depends on the location of your Robina Dental, the materials used for the artificial teeth, and whether your insurance covers them. The procedure itself is relatively inexpensive, and your doctor may recommend financing or low-interest loan options to help you cover the cost of the surgery.
Implants replace missing or damaged teeth and reduce the likelihood of developing oral diseases such as gum disease and tooth decay, which can lead to serious health issues like diabetes and Alzheimer’s. They also help to maintain a natural facial structure and prevent the jawbone from deteriorating over time, ensuring a more youthful appearance.
Compared to traditional dentures, all-on-four implants are much less expensive and are more comfortable for most patients. They require fewer visits to your doctor and are generally less painful than traditional procedures, which can make them more appealing to those who have fears about visiting the dentist or don’t have enough time to spare.
All-on-four dental implants replace height lost in between the upper and lower jaws, restoring facial proportions to make you look younger. They support your cheeks and lips without the need for messy adhesives and are easier to clean than dentures.
They are stronger and more stable than traditional dentures, which are often prone to slippage and shifting. The implants are also more durable, which means they will last longer.
Your doctor can determine if you are a candidate for all-on-four implants by taking an x-ray or cone beam CT scan of your mouth and neck area. This enables your dentist to check for bone density, which is crucial for the placement of dental implants.
If your jawbone isn’t strong enough to hold an implant, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary. However, this isn’t usually required if your implants are placed in an ideal position to maximize the amount of bone available for them to attach to.
The x-ray or CBCT will also show the position of your existing teeth and the surrounding bone, allowing the doctor to place dental implants in the most optimal location to maximize the bone’s strength. Your dentist will use this information to plan the exact position of your new implants, and will work with you to ensure that your new teeth look natural and complement your existing smile.
More affordable than other types of dental implant treatments
All-on-four implants are significantly cheaper than other tooth replacement options because they require fewer surgically placed screws to restore an arch of teeth. This makes them an excellent choice for individuals with poor bone density or those who are considering replacing their full arch of teeth.
Unlike other types of dental implants, all-on-four implants can be used to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaws. They can also be used to anchor removable dentures and bridges.
Your doctor will examine your health and discuss your treatment goals with you before determining if all-on-four is the right option for you. After a consultation, we will perform a Cone Beam CT Scan (CBCT) to confirm the level of bone density in your jaws.
