The All-on-4 Dental Implant Protocol: Giving Patients New Teeth At Much Lower Costs, Part 4
Total Articles: 37
Welcome to the fourth and final installment of this article series on the cost of new teeth and how the “All-On-4” dental implant protocol can save patients tens of thousands of dollars on fixed oral rehabilitation. In our previous three article posts, we explained how:
The “All-On-4” reduces the number of dental implants needed per jaw from as many as 10 to only four.
The “All-On-4” typically only needs a single surgery as opposed to multiple implant procedures spread out over the course of 12 to 18 months.
The “All-On-4” almost always avoids the need for bone grafting surgery; an additional, painful and expensive procedure designed to augment jawbone volume.
These are the three direct ways the “All-On-4” saves patients on the cost of new teeth, especially when considering conventional dental implant procedures. However, choosing to replace teeth with dental implants instead of older, more traditional technologies such as removable dentures also offers many financial benefits, especially in the long term.
How much do New Teeth Cost? Implants Possibly Cheaper than Dentures!
Many patients initially opt to replace missing teeth with conventional removable partial or full dentures. What they don’t realize is that, in the long run, dentures may possibly end up costing them more, not only in monetary value, but also in assets that are irreplaceable and invaluable. Removable dentures are far from a one-time expense or solution to missing teeth. Patients who wear them need to make frequent investments in…
Adhesive strips to help keep their new teeth stabilized in their mouth so that they can eat and speak without their replacement teeth moving around.
Anesthetic ointments to numb the pain and discomfort caused by dentures rubbing against and pushing down on their gums. This can also lead to the development of angry, inflamed and very painful oral sores.
Soaking solutions to store dentures in overnight so as to allow the gums to breathe and recover from a day’s worth of punishment.
The refitting of loose dentures. As the bone comprising the former tooth sockets becomes re-absorbed by the jaw, one’s dentures will progressively fit less and less well. This will necessitate denture refitting every few years or so and more frequently with time as bone loss accelerates.
The greatest irony of it all is that the patients who opt for removable dentures in the first place are likely to ultimately require bone grafting and dental implants. At some stage, the jawbone will have atrophied to such an extent that not even dentures will be able to provide them with a viable teeth replacement solution. So, instead of saving money on replacement teeth (as is their initial intention when buying dentures), these patients end up spending tens of thousands of dollars more on the cumulative cost of denture products, their associated expenses and then dental implants. That is, if they actually do opt for oral rehabilitation.
A Final Note on the “All-On-4” and the Cost of New Teeth
When asking: “How much do new teeth cost?” it’s important for patients to focus on both the immediate and long-term benefits of a teeth replacement solution. The “All-On-4™” offers patients in need of new teeth a much shorter, and as time goes on, a far less “traumatic” journey to oral rehabilitation, in addition to being a far more sophisticated, comfortable and functional than traditional removable dentures.
