In our previous article posts on the breakthrough All-on-4 in Houston, courtesy of experienced implant dentist, Dr. Wayne Brueggen, we discussed how this innovative dental implant protocol offers superior aesthetic and functional solutions to edentulism (not having a single original adult tooth left) and near-edentulism. Furthermore, instead of waiting up to a year or more for a complete set of teeth, patients are able to undergo oral rehabilitation in a single day with a single surgery! And this brings us to one of the greatest benefits of the All-on-4 protocol… Cost.
All-on-4 Dental Implants and Cost Concerns
Money, money, money; it makes the world go around and plays a fundamental role in most, if not all of the decisions we make. When it comes to your health, in an ideal world, cost should not be a core concern. But it is the harsh reality. People opt for inferior teeth replacement technology because they cannot afford the better, more advantageous alternative. Thankfully, while the All-on-4 protocol is the newer and more sophisticated method for the treatment of rampant tooth loss and edentulism, it actually works out to be far cheaper than traditional dental implant methods! In fact, with the All-on-4 in Houston, patients presenting with straight-forward cases are able to save as much as $25,000 on oral rehabilitation, while more complex cases can save a staggering $45,000! And this is not even to mention how much time, pain and discomfort this innovative procedure saves patients.
It’s at this juncture that most people ask: “Ok, so where’s the catch? A better and more sophisticated tooth replacement protocol and it’s cheaper? That just doesn’t make sense.” Well, when you consider a few important things, you will come to understand how the All on 4 in Houston saves patients tens of thousands of dollars…
How the All-on-4 in Houston Saves You Money
- The Number of Implants: If you have lost all of your original adult teeth to decay and gum disease and want to have a new set of teeth placed using dental implants, you would be looking at requiring up to 20 implants for both the upper and lower jaws. Now consider that each implant costs in the region of $3,500 to $4,500 and you can appreciate why oral rehabilitation using traditional implant techniques is so incredibly expensive! The All-on-4 on the other hand – as the name suggests – only requires four dental implants to be placed per jaw.
- The Number of Surgeries: In addition to the cost of requiring up to 20 implants comes the cost of multiple surgeries, consultation with specialists and time off from work. 12 to 18 months spent in and out of surgery can rack up a monstrous bill for patients. The All-on-4 in Houston almost never requires more than a single surgery for patients to go from being edentulous to having a full, beautiful and healthy-looking smile!
- Bone Grafting Surgery: The All-on-4 in Houston is capable of giving patients a brand new set of teeth almost always without the need for lengthy, painful and expensive bone grafting surgery beforehand. This not only saves patients months of recovery, it also saves them a lot of money!
The All-on-4 in Houston is the most sophisticated solution modern dental science has to offer people suffering from rampant tooth loss and edentulism as a result of decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Allowing your oral problems to go undiagnosed and untreated is a core part of the problem, so never allow a concern for cost to come between you and a much improved quality of life, thanks to the unrivalled solutions afforded by All-on-4 dental implants and Dr. Wayne Brueggen.
