The Dental Implant Costs for Complete Oral Rehabilitation: Old Implant Techniques Versus the Breakthrough ‘All-on-4’, PART 2
This article, part 2 of 3, explores the cost differences between traditional dental
implant techniques and the innovative ‘All-on-4’ protocol for complete oral rehabilitation.
In our previous article post on dental implants costs, we began exploring the various ways in which the ‘All-on-4’ surgical protocol affords patients substantial savings over traditional placement techniques. First of all, it was mentioned that the ‘All-on-4’, as the name suggests, only requires four implants per jaw for complete oral rehabilitation, whereas the more traditional approaches can require as many as 20! The second way in which this breakthrough protocol affords patients substantial
savings on dental implants costs is in the number of surgeries required for oral rehabilitation. Dental Implants Costs Savings: Same-Day Results with a Single Surgery With 20 dental implants frequently required for traditional implant techniques, patients are often forced to endure a long journey to a full and confident smile (up to a year and a half, in fact). Such a great number of implants cannot be placed in a single surgery and so the entire process is broken down into a series of surgeries with several months interspersed between for healing. As such, patients are not only covering the dental
implants costs, but the expenses incurred by multiple surgeries as well! Surgery, whether you are having a triple bypass or your tonsils out, is never cheap, so the dental implants costs can work out to be staggeringly high. The ‘All-on-4’ on the other hand only requires four dental implants to be placed per jaw, which in turn provide permanent ‘anchorage’ for a fully customized and non-removable prosthetic dental bridge. All of this can quite readily be completed in a single surgery of only a few hours, affording patient’s considerable savings on their dental implants costs. In other words, an edentulous patient (one who doesn’t have a single original adult tooth left) can walk into the dental implant facility in the morning and leave again in the afternoon with a full set of immediately functional and non-removable teeth that are virtually indistinguishable – in aesthetics and feel – from natural teeth.
Dental Implants Costs Savings With only four implants required per jaw and a single surgery for the entire procedure, think of all the time, money and convenience a patient is saving thanks to the ‘All-on-4’. In fact, through this revolutionary protocol, the dental implants costs are lowered on average by a staggering $25,000 for straight-forward cases and a
shocking $45,000 for patients presenting with more complex oral problems! Instead of wasting time, money and one’s quality of life on removable dentures and other inferior tooth replacement solutions, patients can get a full set of aesthetic, immediately functional and permanent teeth in a single surgery, in a single day and at much reduced dental implants costs. Dental Implants Costs with the ‘All-on-4’: Stay Tuned… In our final installment in this three-part series, we shall explore how the ‘All-on-4’ is capable of bypassing a major obstacle on the road to oral rehabilitation – bone loss in the jaw – almost always without the need for bone grafting surgery beforehand. Stay tuned for the final installment on dental implants costs with the revolutionary ‘All-on-4’ protocol!
