Included in this big range are all-on-4 and single dental implants, but how do you know which option is best for your smile and dental needs? Continue reading on to learn about the differences between these two options.

What is the all-on-4 concept and how does it work?

All-on-4 places four dental implants in your mouth to support the arch. It allows patients a full new set of teeth in just one appointment with their dentist.

Who is the ideal candidate for all-on-4 treatments?

If you have lost all or most of your teeth, have poor teeth from periodontal disease, or suffer from a failing bridge, then our dentists may recommend All-on-4 treatment for you. In addition to all-on-4, there are also all-on-6 and all-on-8 treatments.

How do they work?

These techniques are used when six or eight dental implants are used to support the arch.

What should patients think of when considering this treatment?

Each patients’ dental needs and circumstances are different. Our Brechon dentists are eager to work with you and find the perfect restoration for you.

What is the difference between All-on-4 and All-on-6/8?

Each has a different number of implants used as a foundation for support.

What is a dental implant and who is eligible for this procedure?

Dental implants are artificial teeth that are permanently placed in your mouth. Proper bone mass and oral health are typically needed for this procedure.

What should patients expect right after surgery?

The healing period may last several months.

Can this be considered a permanent solution?

Our dentists offer dental implants as a permanent solution to help restore your smile.
