All-on-4 New York CityNew York City residents who are missing all or most of their teeth have a new solution available to them to help restore their bite. All on 4 dental implants – in which only 4 dental implants are placed per jaw to support a full arch of teeth – provide all the oral function and aesthetic benefits of dental implants, while significantly reducing your amount of surgery time. Read on as New York City periodontist Dr. Kissel explains what All-on-4 dental implants are, and how they can help you chew better than other teeth replacement options.

What Are All on 4 Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that inserts a titanium rod into your mouth to secure natural looking, tooth crowns. Typically, 1 titanium implant is used per tooth crown, unless there are a few adjacent missing teeth, in which case 1 implant can support multiple tooth crowns.

All-on-4 dental implants are a new treatment option that makes it easier for you to get a full mouth restoration. When New York City residents get All on 4 dental implants, only 4 titanium implants are placed per jaw, with each implant helping to support a full arch of teeth. All on 4 dental implants are possible because the outer implants are longer and tilted. For the upper jaw, this allows the implant to bypass the sinuses. For the lower jaw, the tilted outer implants help avoid the nerve that runs through the back of the lower mouth.

How Do All-on-4 Implants Compare to Dentures?

When they are considering their options, many New York City residents want to know the difference between All-on-4 dental implants and dentures. There are several differences between these two options, including:

  • All-on-4 dental implants require oral surgery;
  • All-on-4 dental implants insert a titanium rod into your jawbone. This stimulates bone growth and helps prevent bone resorption, the loss of jawbone that can occur when you’re missing teeth. Bone resorption also causes gum recession and sunken cheeks, which make you look older than you actually are;
  • All-on-4 dental implants are a permanent solution that, unlike dentures, do not come out; and
  • All-on-4 dental implants will not move or shift when you speak or chew food.

How Do I Know if I Am a Candidate for All-on-4?

Because of the many differences between All-on-4 dental implants and dentures, many New York City residents choose All-on-4 treatment, especially due to their ability to make it easier to bite and chew. But, before you can undergo All-on-4 treatment, Dr. Kissel first needs to confirm that you are a good candidate for this specialized treatment option. This includes having a dental CT scan and complete oral examination to confirm that your jawbone structure is sufficient to hold the All-on-4 titanium rods.
