Deer Park, Texas: All on 4 Dental Implants:
17. Dr. Nugent, can you explain the difference between the All on Four and traditional dental implant full mouth restorations?
One of the main differences is the number of dental implants needed to complete a full mouth rehabilitation. As the name states, the All on Four dental implant technique utilizes only four dental implants. Four implants on the top and four implants on the bottom for a total of eight implants used. Whereas, traditional dental implant treatment required eight to ten dental implants placed per jaw! This could mean sixteen to twenty dental implants that the patient needed for a full mouth restoration.
Another key point is that the All on Four procedure can be completed in one surgical visit. The patient will walk out with a new set of teeth on surgery day. The patient never goes without teeth! Conversely, traditional dental implant full mouth restorations can take up to two years waiting for bone grafts and dental implants to heal.
18. Can the upper and lower teeth be done in the same day with All-on-4 implants?
Yes, the All-on-4 dental implant technique can be used to replace your upper and lower teeth in one day. However, sometimes it is best to do one set of a teeth at a time. You case will be evaluated by Dr. Nugent. Our goal is to give you the best and longest lasting dental solutions.
