In recent years, great strides have been made in dental implantology. Massive advancements have been seen in dental technology and implant placement techniques.
One of these revolutionary techniques involves All-on-4® implants (a Nobel Biocare Group trademarked product). All-on-4 ® implants provide edentulous (toothless) patients with a new, natural-looking set of teeth with the placement of just four dental implants.
Ok, I know what you’re thinking…
How does the All-on-4® technique differ from traditional implants? What are the advantages of All-on-4® dental implants? How much do All-on-4® implants cost in Montreal?
In this article, our maxillofacial specialists will explain everything you need to know about All-on-4® dental implants.
What are All-on-4® dental implants?
The All-on-4® treatment concept is a type of dental implant that is being used more and more by oral and maxillofacial surgeons in Quebec. This revolutionary technique requires fewer anchor points in the jaw than most other methods and produces excellent results.
The surgery consists of placing four dental implants in the jaw. Unlike traditional implants, which are placed vertically, the posterior implants are placed at a 30° to 45° angle. This gives the acrylic dentures better stability even though fewer implants are used.
This procedure is ideal for people whose bone mass is too low for traditional implants. With All-on-4® implants, edentulous patients can access a new set of teeth without needing a bone graft.
Who are All-on-4® implants designed for?
All-on-4® dental implants are designed for people with terminal dentition or complete edentulism (toothlessness) in the upper or lower jaw or both. As mentioned above, patients whose low bone mass prevents them from having traditional implants can benefit from this treatment.
The All-in-4® technique is also ideal for people who have significant problems with their teeth and require complex dental extractions. In this case, an advantage often is that the tooth extraction can take place on the same day as the new dental implant placement.
How much do All-on-4® dental implants cost in Montreal?
The cost of All-on-4® implants in Montreal can vary depending on each patient’s individual circumstances. However, generally the average price of these dental implants ranges from $23,000 to $25,000 per dental arch (upper/lower set).
This price usually includes the following treatments:
- A consultation and dental examination to establish the treatment plan
- Pre-operative surgical planning with a 3D dental X-ray
- Implant placement surgery
- Fixed acrylic dentures
- Post-operative follow-up
