Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you no longer had to live with dentures, missing teeth or no teeth at all? With the revolutionary All-On-4 treatment plan, you can have a smile makeover in one day. New teeth in one day can be yours!
How Much Does All-On-4 Cost?
Typically, All-On-4 costs about $21,500 per arch. This includes the industry-leading All-On-4 treatment procedure, which is exclusive to Nobel Biocare. This treatment is intended for patients that currently have one or two complete dentures, or that are missing most of their teeth.
The cost of $21,500 is very inclusive. It covers the expense of the dental implants and the oral surgery procedure involved with installing the four dental implants. When a patient orders All-On-4, they receive delivery of an acrylic set of teeth on a single arch, supported as an implant on a fixed bridge for teeth placement. This is also included in that $21,500 fee.
If unexpected circumstances arise, the extensive lab work and delivery of acrylic teeth can be expected in 24 hours.
Since treatment is completed in-office, patients can save an average of between $6,000 and $9,000 per arch. That’s a significant saving. When compared to a two location or multiple doctor treatment approaches, in which both doctors charge separate fees, it’s much better to get new teeth in one day through All-On-4.
Note that there may be additional costs, depending on several factors. Full mouth permanent dental implant-supported fixed bridges can be manufactured out of zirconia or a combination of acrylic and zirconia over a titanium framework. These options can alter the final cost. For improved durability and ability to be repaired, a permanent, zirconia fixed bridge that is implant-supported may be recommended. Keep in mind that this can also change the cost.
Also, there may be additional procedures that are necessary to complete treatment and placement of All-on-4 implants to ensure long-term use and success. These added procedures may include removal of any remaining teeth and healing of existing gum infections before the surgery.
Generally speaking, All-on-4 implant treatments are lower in cost than some other restorative dentistry treatments. This makes All-on-4 more affordable since it requires fewer implants in comparison with the traditional implant and oral rehabilitation procedures. With everything considered, All-on-4 treatment is a low-cost alternative for people who suffer from loose fitting dentures, losing teeth, or no teeth at all.
What Is The Recovery Time For Teeth In A Day On 4 To 6 Implants?
The recovery time for patients who undergo the All-on-4 treatment varies according to the condition of the patient, and individual circumstances. However, in general, patients can expect to be able to use their new teeth almost immediately following the treatment.
Having oral work done is always discomforting to some degree. Even a regular tooth cleaning at the dentist can cause some discomfort. Having All-on-4 treatment can also cause some discomfort that can disrupt normal eating activities. During the first six to eight weeks following treatment, patients are advised to take care of the new implants. Chewing certain foods can be damaging. The physician will give patients a list of foods to avoid for awhile. After that period, however, most patients have very little trouble adjusting to the implants. In general, people who have the All-on-4 treatment can enjoy a normal eating, drinking and talking routine, just as they would with their original teeth.
What Are the Different Types Of Fixed Bridges that are Implant-Supported For a Full Mouth?
There are three different types of fixed bridges that are implant-supported for a full mouth treatment. They are:
1) Acrylic teeth that are implant-supported, over a titanium framework on four implants. Upon request in this instance, the frame, made of titanium, may be obscured beneath the acrylic. This is called a permanent, hybrid-fixed bridge.
2) Zirconia teeth that are implant-supported, over a pink, solid base made of zirconia, on four implants. This is called a permanent fixed bridge.
3) Acrylic teeth over an acrylic base on four implants. This is a temporary hybrid bridge that is intended to last for four to ten months.
What Is The Cost Of A Full Set Of Implants For Denture Patients?
You can expect to pay $21,500 for a full set of teeth implants. The exact amount will vary according to your individual circumstances. Qualified patients may get a minimum of four implants, plus one set of new fixed implant-supported replacement teeth per arch. The efficiency of the treatment saves money for the patient.
How Long Do All-On-4 Implants Last – Success Rate Of Lower And Upper Jaw?
This treatment is considered a long-term solution. The All-on-4 Implants concept offers high success rates. In the mandible, up to ten years may pass without a follow-up visit being needed. In the maxilla, up to five years may pass without a follow-up visit needed. With that said, it is important to have regular maintenance visits made with a dentist to ensure that the gums stay healthy. Healthy gums are an important factor in successful All-On-4 Implants.
The cumulative survival rate for both the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw) are:
- Mid-term 3–4 years: 96.3–100%
- Long-term 5–10 years: 94.8–98.0%
