All-On-4 Dental Implants Costs & Differences
- January 28, 2015 4:15 am
Recently, where ever I turn I see dental advertisements for All-On-4 Dental Implants treatment.
So what is it and is there a difference between various methods and the cost?
“All-On-4” is a treatment concept that has evolved over the past 20 years involving the placement of four and in some cases more, Titanium fixtures into either an upper or lower jaw and then placing a whole set of teeth on them. In many cases, the treatment can be completed within a day or so.
At All-On-4-Clinic Malvern, we have taken a great treatment concept and further improved and enhanced it. We use genuine Swedish ‘Nobel Biocare’ Implants and components that makes a big difference to the way the treatment is performed, as it was the Swedish company, Nobel Biocare that introduced the concept back in 2004 to experienced implant-surgeons like Dr Hillel New. The concept was improved and popularised in Australia by Dr Alex Fibishenko, who is founder of the brand and works together with Dr New.
As there is no registrable specialty dedicated to dental implants, patients who are interested in having “All-On-4” treatment should be very mindful of the experience and skills of their surgeon, their training and the type of implants and components they are using, especially since this treatment is not simple to undo if done incorrectly. There are lots of dentists and dental specialist offering discounted All-On-Four type procedures using cheap implants and components enabling them to significantly cut back on costs and compete against those practitioners who are well trained and insist on only using genuine Nobel Biocare Products.
In addition, apart from the actual components, there is also the laboratory procedures that make a big difference to the All-On-4 Dental Implants Cost. Clinics under this brand use specially-trained technicians and produce an individualised lab-fabricated FINAL bridge, rather than just a cheap temporary bridge that will require replacement at a substantial cost in the future. One of the other problems with techniques involving the fitting of a temporary bridge, apart from being unreliable and difficult to clean, is the potential long-term affect on the health of the dental implants and bone loss.
