This is a four-part series examining the All-on-4 dental implant technique. We will cover what is entailed in the procedure and how it all comes together for incredible, life-changing results.
It seems unusual or even impossible that using modern technique like this will save you money.
Traditionally 6-8 or even 10 implants per arch (meaning upper or lower jaw) have been considered protocol. Can you imagine paying for 10 implants per arch for a restoration? Just the implants and crowns alone without the other surgical procedures could cost from $3,500 to $4,000 apiece.
But with the latest technology, 4 implants (2 placed vertically and 2 placed on an angle) per arch is the surgical protocol. This improves the costs significantly!
Since there was no way that 20 implants could be placed in a single sitting, several surgical sessions were required. Each of these sessions would require extra anesthesia, time off work, and time for extra post op appointments. Everything adding up to extra costs and inconvenience.
The result is ONE surgery and $avings!
When older methods were used, often multiple bone grafting sites were necessary. This might have required a full ridge augmentation or even a more aggressive treatment. Often multiple sinus lift treatments would be necessary, increasing the time and costs even further. Months of healing time for these procedures is required. Multiple bone grafting and sinus lift procedures cost thousands of dollars.
With the All on 4 method, the need for these procedures is almost always eliminated! Angled implant placement can relieve you of extra surgeries, months of extra healing time, time off work, recovery periods and extra doctor visits.

Because a patient will not need so many implants, multiple surgeries, bone grafting, sinus lifts, consultations and recovery periods, the All on 4 choice works out to be extremely and economically favorable.
In fact, a patient can save $30,000 to $40,000 per arch when compared to older techniques.
