We Debunk Some Common All-on-4 Dental Implant Myths! 

If you’re one of the many people in the DC Metro area who need to have their teeth replaced, you might be considering All-on-4 dental implants.  

Every year, we see patients who have questions about the dental implant process, and many of their questions come from common myths they have heard throughout the years.  

The oral surgeons at Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts want all of our patients to be well-informed before having their All-on-4 implants placed, so we’re here to debunk some of those common myths today! 

All-on-4 Dental Implant Are The Same As Traditional Single Dental Implants 

Not so! The term “All-on-4” refers to a popular dental implant option in which all of a patient’s new teeth are supported by just four implants. Traditional single dental implants require one implant per tooth.  

All-on-4 dental implants are also less invasive than traditional single implants. They provide men and women in Northern Virginia the option of having natural looking teeth without needing multiple pre-surgeries. 

All-on-4 Dental Implants Are Too Expensive  

Choosing All-on-4 dental implants is an expense most Northern Virginia men and women will only experience once in their lives. This amazingly comfortable tooth-replacement system is an investment – not only in your dental aesthetics but also in your overall health and wellbeing! 

By stimulating your jawbone tissue, All-on-4 dental implants strengthen your jawbone and help maintain its shape over the years. You’ll enjoy a fully functioning set of teeth and be able to show off those pearly whites for years to come! 

The All-on-4 Dental Implants Process Is Painful  

While we all know that dental procedures have a negative association with pain, the All-on-4 dental implant process is not a painful one.  

We offer multiple sedation options tailored to each patient’s comfort level. With dental sedation, patients will have a peaceful and pain-free experience during their procedure. When you visit Virginia Advanced Surgical Arts for your initial consultation, one of our oral surgeons will explain the sedation options available to you and choose the best one for your specific needs and medical history. 

Everyone Will Know That You Have False Teeth 

During consultations with prospective All-on-4 dental implant patients, we often hear concerns about aesthetics. Not to worry! All-on-4 dental implants are the most natural looking tooth replacement system available – they look and feel like natural teeth! What a huge benefit!
