The American College of Prosthodontics defines All-on-4® dental implants as a trademarked procedure where all missing teeth in a single jaw can be replaced with the use of just four dental implants.
The All-on-4® dental implants procedure is not a well-known prosthodontics procedure. As a result, many patients end up overpaying for dental implants because they are not told about the option to receive All-on-4® dental implants. Sometimes this is because their chosen treatment provider is not trained to perform the procedure.
Without knowing all of your options for treatment of missing or broken teeth, you won't be able to select the procedure that is the most affordable and the best fit to correct your oral health issues.
This makes your choice of Los Angeles prosthodontics provider a vital part of achieving your health, overall appearance and smile goals.
What Are All-on-4® Dental Implants?
The first thing you need to know about All-on-4® dental implants is that each patient is unique. This can mean there are a number of potential prosthodontics procedures that may remedy your missing or broken teeth. But which procedure is the simplest, safest and most affordable that will fully meet your needs?
Here, you will be relying on your prosthodontist to guide you towards the optimal procedure for you.
This procedure can be especially recommended if you have experienced a great deal of bone loss towards the back of your jaw(s). This is because the four implants required to secure your new dental implants are installed at the front of your jaw(s). It is possible to install a single arch or a dual arch (both upper and lower jaw) implant.
Dr. Tormani's approach to All-on-4® dental implants offers patients with bone loss and multiple tooth loss or breakage issues certain advantages that no other prosthodontics procedure can provide in a single treatment.
These include a permanent and comfortable placement that requires no adhesive, easy discernment of different food and liquid temperatures, improved sense of taste and pleasure in food, strengthened jaw and bite force (by up to 70 percent!), stops further bone deterioration, re-emphasizes your natural facial structure.
Often, patients who have previously received dentures, dental bridges or other treatments that are no longer fully meeting their needs will choose to transition to the All-on-4® dental implants treatment. One major perk of choosing All-on-4® dental implants is that this treatment does not require any bone grafting and the lengthy delays this creates.
In fact, Dr. Tormani can typically install your Los Angeles All-on-4® dental implants in a single day. This can be ideal if you have a busy schedule that doesn't allow for any significant downtime to remedy oral health issues.
How Much Do All-on-4® Dental Implants Cost?
As of the time of publication, the average cost in Los Angeles for an All-on-4® dental implants procedure ranges from $20,000 to $50,000.
The cost range factors in a number of unique needs that are not common to all prosthodontics patients. For example, some patients may first need to have additional tooth or root extractions performed before their mouth is fully prepared to receive their new All-on-4® dental implants.
Other patients may first need to have prior dental or prosthodontics hardware removed or remediated, such as dental bridges, crowns, dentures or fillings, before the All-on-4® dental implants procedure can be installed successfully.
These unique and highly individualized patient factors can affect the total cost of the All-on-4® dental implants procedure on a case-by-case basis.
