How Much Does an All-on-4 Dental Implant Cost?
Being upfront, All-on-4 or Permanent New Teeth in a Day® as they are called, are more expensive than the modern dentures. But they nearly eliminate all the oral and health problems associated with dentures.
The All-on-4 concept is simple. Instead of replacing each tooth with its own dental implant, the dentist inserts 4-screws into your top jaw and 4-screws into your lower jaw and attaches a hybrid denture to each.
The price of dental implants are very cost-efficient. If properly cared for, your dental implant can last for many years.
The titanium post helps to retain bone density in the jaw by providing the necessary stimulation to the bone, making it one of the healthiest ways of replacing a missing tooth. All other remaining teeth are kept whole and intact, as there is no need to grind down any healthy teeth for a bridge.
What is an All-on-4 Implant Bridge?
The all-on-4 implant bridge combines dental implant technology with a dental bridge concept. The number “4” in the All-on-4 implant comes for the four implants used in the bridge. Rather than placing each implant individually, the four anchors in the bridge of teeth.
The first step is placing the four implants into the jaw, and then the replacement teeth are attached on the same day. Called hybrid denture, the replacement teeth look like a bolted-down bridge instead of individual teeth.
The design and placement of the implants allow the teeth to support natural chewing forces just like real teeth immediately.
With traditional implants, a waiting period exists between surgically placing the posts and attaching replacement teeth.
The All-on-4 dental implants procedure eliminates this waiting period to let you experience a functional, new smile right away. You’ll often hear this implant dentistry method called teeth in a day or teeth in an hour.
All on 4 dental implants is a simple concept, and the dentist uses 4 implants to attach a bridge or hybrid denture to either you upper or lower arch. The cost for All on 4 dental implants in Houston varies significantly by the type of bridge you choose, your insurance, and the other procedures that are required.
