If the timeline of a one-day procedure seemed too good to be true, that is because there is a small catch. The actual procedure does happen in its entirety in a single day. However, there is some preparation work that needs to be done.
The beauty of the all on 4 procedure is that no matter what, you will only need 4 implants or whatever the dentist would determine and discuss (sometimes you might need 5 or 6). This is how it works. During the operation, a set of teeth will be created to fit and match the dimensions of your mouth. Meanwhile, your dentist will drill 4 holes (or more) into the bone surface that used to hold your teeth. Part of the preparation work includes making sure that you have enough bone surface to drill without having to (Graft) attach fake bones to extend the surface. Once the holes are created, metal threaded inserts are pushed inside. The set of teeth is placed on top and screwed securely into place with screws and your procedure is complete.
Why should you do the All on 4?
The main obvious benefit of the All on 4 procedure is how quickly and efficiently it could be done. Having all teeth in a row on 4 (or more) implants greatly reduces the time required to complete the treatment. In addition to efficiency, the All on 4 procedure is a very comfortable solution for many people. The implants are fitted perfectly to ensure that no movement occurs. This is very good news for patients who use dentures and hate how uncomfortable they could be.
