The recovery time for the all-on-four is about a week compared to the regular implant procedure. If beading persists after one day, rinse the mouth gently with salt water. In the following days, avoid bending over, lifting heavy stuff, or any strenuous activity that may promote bleeding.
Advantages of All-on-Four
All-on-four implants are becoming extremely popular because of their multiple advantages even over the traditional implants. These are:
- Relaxed Bone Requirements– Traditional implants need sufficient bone mass of good quality. The all-on-four do not have as stringent requirements. The implant locations are chosen carefully to utilize existing bone, and the implants are placed at suitable inclining angles to allow for a longer length, giving a better load bearing
- Cost-effectiveness – It may seem that one implant is required for replacement of each missing tooth. In reality, a complete denture can be supported by using only 4, 6 or 8 implants in each jaw. Although the all-on-four dentures are still much expensive than the conventional dentures, yet they are much stronger durable. Therefore, they prove to be a cost-effective option in the longer run, as you require a minimum number of implants for complete tooth rehabilitation.
- Number of Visits– Traditional implant supported dentures involve a number of visits and months of healing time. The all-on-four procedure reduces the number of visits, and normally patients do not have to wait for the months for complete healing to take place.
Cost of All-on-Four
The cost of all-on-four dental implants varies depending on the material used for the artificial teeth. It can also vary from place to place and country to country. Generally, if acrylic teeth are used, the procedure can cost from $30000. If porcelain teeth are involved, the cost may go up by about $5000 to lie from $25000 to$35000.
For the first few days after the surgery, it is best to use liquids and soft diet. In any case, do avoid foods which cause you pain. That means you are overloading the implants. At the same time, make sure that you are getting sufficient nourishment to promote bone formation around the implant. If you notice or feel a persistent unusual condition do report to the dentist.
