When our patients contact us asking about All-on-4 dental implants they want to get the best and most accurate information to make a decision about their dental care. This is why we are going to tell you the most common questions made about All-on-4.
How is it possible to get a new smile with only 4 dental implants?
The All-on-4 dental implant protocol is a treatment plan where implants are placed strategically (2 implants are parallel and the other 2 tilted at 45 degrees) so that it has a good mechanical retention to support the titanium bar.
How long do the All-on-4 dentures last?
Dentures have a quality of life of approximately 15 years, this includes periodic reviews with your dentist and maintenance of them. They also require daily care as if they were your natural teeth. We must take care of them and brush them when we wake up and before bed and after every meal.
What are the new teeth made of?
The dentures have an inner titanium structure, and the teeth themselves can be either porcelain or acrylic. Both of these materials provide the resistance necessary to withstand the chewing forces of your bite.
How do I know that I am a candidate for All-on-4?
After an evaluation with the doctor through x-rays, CT scans and a clinical review, and depending on the amount of bone and remnants of teeth they can determine if you are a candidate for either procedure.
Can I use my own dentures and adjust them?
For All on 4 it is not possible to adjust an older denture. Alternatively, that can be done if you decide to go for SNAP IN DENTURES with mini implants, which we also offer at our dental clinic in Cancun.
