Modern dental care is remarkable. Today’s dental patients benefit from advanced technology but, despite advancements in dental care, millions of people still experience tooth loss due to injury, gum disease, or decay.

All-on-4® is an excellent solution for patients who have lost all of their upper or lower teeth and need a full set of fixed dentures.

All-on-4® · Replacing a full set of teeth (full dental arch) with four implants and a dental implant-supported bridge.

An implant is like a titanium tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jawbone replacing the natural root-part of a missing tooth.

All-on-4® is a tested and proven approach that replaces your teeth following tooth loss. The technique involves the placement of four dental implants in precise locations of your jaw to support a set of new, permanent teeth. Your ability to chew and your appearance will be fully restored.

Conventional dentures will inevitably cause bone loss that will damage your appearance.

All-on-4® implants prevent bone loss by integrating into the jaw bone, allowing normal chewing pressure to maintain the health of the gums and jaw bone.

The ultimate fix for loose dentures is the dental implant retained denture.

A denture securely fastened to dental implants will not slip or feel loose. You will no longer need adhesives or have any discomfort caused by denture movement. Your teeth will look natural, and robust stability can improve your ability to chew.

Question

How much does All-on-4® Cost?

Answer

The cost of All-on-4® treatment can range from $18,000 to $38,000 depending on your needs.

Financing is available; you can have a beautiful, confident smile for as low as $400 a month.

Question

Will dental insurance pay for All-on-4® ?

Answer

Let's split the All-on-4® treatment into several stages and address the coverage for each. Insurance generally will not cover the whole procedure but may include a portion of each step.

Dental insurance policies commonly separate treatments into a couple of categories considered Basic or Major.

Many dental insurance policies identify tooth extraction as a Basic procedure so if tooth extractions are needed preceding implant placement 60% to 80% may be covered under the plan.

Implant placement and prosthetic fabrication are deemed to be Major dental procedures. If your insurance covers Major procedures they could pay as much as 50%; however, most insurance won’t cover the cost.

The out of pocket cost of All-on-4® depends on the type of dental insurance coverage you have.

We can work with your insurance company to figure out what portion of the All-on-4® you will have to pay.

Question

Any failing teeth that remain will be extracted and then you will be prepared for implants to be placed. Two straight implants in the front and two implants tilted up to 45º in the back of your jaw.

At the close of the procedure patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of the implants will receive a fixed provisional bridge. In other words, if you meet the requirements, you will leave with teeth.
