At Florida Prosthodontics we keep All On 4 Dental Implant an Affordable Implant Solution for Merritt Island Community.
We prefer using the industry-leading All-On-4 Implants Treatment concept which is a registered trademark of Nobel Biocare for patients who have a Complete Denture or are missing most of his/her teeth and can qualify for full mouth implants. This includes the cost of Dental Implants, the surgical placement of 4 on one implants, and same day delivery of an all-acrylic, natural looking permanent set of teeth on single arch (all-acrylic teeth as an implant-supported fixed bridge for teeth replacement)
The is no question that the all on 4 or more procedures are expensive. The first thing most patients need to know it what the all on 4 dental implants cost. They run from about $20,000 up to $50,000 per arch if you get into bone grafting and individual porcelain teeth. This post will talk about both the standard all on 4 dental implants cost and the variances that can increase that cost. We also discuss how much those increases are.
The cost of a single dental implant, in the the U.S., averages between $3000 – $6000 per implant, according to the Dental Implant Cost Guide.
All-on-4 Dental Implants require four implants to secure the bottom arch and four implants for the top arch. The total cost includes the cost of the implants, the dentures, plus any additional procedures that may need to be done, such as x-rays or tooth extraction. Costs also vary according to where the implant is done (they’re usually more expensive in large cities).
Replacing a complete set of teeth with Dental Implants may be an option for some patients, but not for all patients, and are not as cost effective as All-on-4s.
The cost benefits of All on 4 Implant as compared with Traditional Dental Implants treatment will vary greatly based on a number of factors. However, All On 4 emerges as a clear choice winner when compared to dental implants that require multiple visits and bone grafting procedures. When you Schedule in for a Complimentary Implant Evaluation, Dr. Rawal can give you an idea of what you can expect based on your oral state. In general, the amount you can expect to pay will depend upon the following:
- Complexity of the Surgery and if Bone Grafting is needed
- Number of Implants being placed
- Material used to Craft the Crown
- Laboratory Fees
- Expertise of the Surgeon
- Geographical Area

The all on 4 procedure involves placement of up to 6 implants but generally 4, are angled in such a way as to avoid the vital structures such as the maxillary sinus and also lower nerves. By angling the implants in an incline of up to 45 degrees much longer dental implants can be used. These longer and permanent implants give much greater stability that can be utilized to attach a fixed bridgework in the same day. Learn more about the All On 4 Procedure.
The success rate of this type of procedure is much higher than conventional therapy. This is for a number of reasons firstly that by avoiding bone grafting the success goes up as there less to go wrong and secondly by using fixed bridgework instead of removable denture in the healing phase the implants are subjected to undue forces and constant rubbing with the dentures. How long they will last depends on maintenance as with anything. We recommend at least 6 monthly routine examinations after the first year. Our All on 4 Implant solution has a Lifetime Warranty, subject to the patient having attended the regular reviews and maintenance visits.
Conventional therapy usually involves placement of dental implants and if in the back of the upper jaw some bone grafting. The bone grafting usually needs a period of maturation/healing of up to 16 months in the upper back of the jaw. After the graft has matured then implants are placed and which requires a further 3 to 4 months of implants bonding with the bone (osseintegration) and once these implants have healed and set within the bone then the procedure for the final bridgework can start.
With Teeth in One Day, the key is the latest technology and preparation. As one of the few practices in the Metro Orlando, Florida area to have an Onsite Dental Lab with CT scanner, we are able to assess the bone structure to a much greater detail. By using the latest technology in implants, we are able to plan exactly where the best position for the implants is. This also enables to order the exact components for the procedure. The Bridgework is made ready before the surgery by Dr. Rawal who only deals with the crown/bridgework/restoration aspect. This is complimented by the in house lab technician who will adjust the bridgework. Majority of the patients have experienced minimal post surgery pain or swelling due to all the procedures being carried out the same day.
The minimum time frame for this treatment is usually approximately 4-6 months. This includes immediate bridgework fitted at the time of implant placement surgery and also the final definitive bridgework which has a titanium framework for long term strength. The second bridgework is carried out approximately 3-6 months after the first bridge is fitted. The advantage of this that you can get used to wearing the bridge and also if any changes need to be made in terms of size, shape or color match of teeth this can be easily done for the final bridgework. The initial bridgework is only fitted after you have given the approval before the implants are placed.
There are very few contraindications but generally some illnesses where there has been radiotherapy to the jaws and also if you have taken intravenous bhisphonates is the absolute contraindications. In some patients there maybe lack of bone even for this procedure (usually very rare) and usually due to the fact they may have had teeth missing for almost 30 to 40 years. Usually then we may be able to revert back to conventional therapy or use a special type of implant called Zygomatic implant. These are a placed in a different bone (Zygoma instead of maxilla) and are much longer. After these have been placed either a removable implant retained denture or fixed bridgework can be done.
One reason for the variance in All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs is that often the procedure you receive is not actually the All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure at all. Many practices incorrectly proclaim Snap-in Dentures, Implant Supported Dentures, or even Mini-Implants the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure. These procedures are not the All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure.
Many All-on-4 Dental Implant providers may charge a separate fee for different phases of the Procedure. For instance, you may be charged a separate fee for the consultative and diagnostic phase of the Procedure, a separate fee for the surgical phase of the Procedure, and yet another fee for the restorative phase of the Procedure. Many Providers also charge “hidden” incidental fees based on your particular situation. This can make the actual All-on-4 Dental Implant costs stated, different from your actual costs, when the procedure is completed months or years later.
Many Patients consider traveling abroad to countries such as Mexico or Costa Rica, in an effort to save on All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs. Patients need to be aware that they will have no protections or recourse under the laws of the United States. Any complication or malpractice that may occur during or after your procedure is assumed at your own risk.
Many practices make false claims regarding their experience, facilities, procedures, and reviews. There is a reason their costs are lower, yet they are claiming to use the same materials, equipment, and procedures. The costs for these materials are no less in foreign countries, if they are available in these countries at all. It is easy to become a victim of “Bait-and Switch” when you are in a foreign land and vulnerable to their deception.
If you are considering affordable All-on-4 Dental Implant Costs in a foreign country be aware that Dentists, Facilities and Dental Schools in these countries are not subject to, certified, or regulated by any governing board or consumer protection agency of the United States. These agencies DO NOT CERTIFY ANY FOREIGN ENTITIES OR DENTISTS.
The materials used in your All-on-4 Dental Implant procedure also varies. 99.9% of facilities in the world will make an acrylic denture that you will wear for months or even years. The costs to complete your procedure are dependent on outside laboratories to complete your “final” or “permanent” restoration. What makes a restoration “permanent” is that it must contain a metal substructure, usually made of titanium, or be made of a monolithic material such as Zirconia.
Most facilities have an outside lab fabricate a titanium bar, wrap this bar in acrylic with denture teeth attached, or have an outside lab fabricate a Zirconia, or other material such as Crystal Ultra Ceramic Hybrid restoration after several months or years. These restorations are designed and fabricated in specialized 5-axis milling machines by experienced CAD/CAM personnel. If you are in a facility without this milling technology, you will be receiving acrylic/denture teeth restorations and possibly one of the “final” restorations months or years later. This is why All-on-4 Dental Implant costs vary, it has done with the capabilities of the facility, the costs for outside lab work, multiple visits, and experience.
