Can you really continue on your current path?
Consider the costs you pay when you DON’T get the dental care you know you need:

– Realized that there’s nothing that can improve their quality of life more than fixing their smiles – not travel, jewelry, or cars.
Speaking of cars… When considering All-On-4 and full mouth dental implants to replace a full set of teeth, you should budget as if you’re buying a car, because that’s about how much you’re going to spend.

2. Factors Impacting the Cost of All-On-4 Treatment
Here are some factors that will impact the cost of your All-On-4 treatment in the Hamilton area:
A. How many implants do you need for All-On-4?
The traditional approach to full mouth implants involved placing 8 to 10 implants per arch, which worked well for those with sufficient bone. The problem is that most people don’t have enough bone for that many implants, so they need to go through costly and time-consuming bone grafting procedures before they’re ready first. However, the All-On-4 revolution is a completely new approach that uses just 4 implants to support an entire set of teeth. While some people have enough space and bone for a 5th or 6th implant, more implants isn’t always better.
An experienced dentist will help you understand and plan for the correct number of implants in order to get you the smile you want.
Of course, at most dentists, the more implants you use, the more your treatment will cost.
In order to keep our pricing simplified, for our patients our pricing is for 4 implants, and if the doctor thinks it will be helpful, we include a 5th or 6th implant at no extra charge.
B. How much bone grafting do you need for All-On-4?
All-On-4 and full mouth dental implants is a life-changing solution. Imagine having a rock solid set of brand new teeth that never needs to be taken out and never moves!
The fine print though is that all this is true… IF you have enough bone. And sometimes that’s a big IF.
If you’ve been missing teeth for many years…
If you suffer from gum disease…
If it’s been a while since you’ve seen the dentist for regular cleanings…
If you’ve worn a denture for many years…
Then you are at higher risk to have shrinkage in your bone. And if your bone shrinks too much, or if it shrinks in the wrong spots, then you may NOT be a good candidate for All-On-4 or full mouth dental implants… at least not yet.
If you don’t have enough bone in certain areas, we can use modern bone grafting techniques to literally grow more bone. Of course, depending on how much bone grafting you need, it usually means several trips to the specialist, which can often double the time and double the cost involved in your care.
All-On-4 is a more modern approach designed to avoid major bone grafting, saving you the time, cost, and annoyance of having to go through all those bone grafting steps.
In fact, at our Dental Implant Centre in Hamilton, ON, over 90% of the people we see can get a full set of teeth supported on dental implants WITHOUT the need for major bone grafting.
C. How experienced is your All-On-4 Implant Dentist?
When it comes to All-On-4 procedures, your dentist’s experience plays a crucial role not just in the outcome, but also the cost.
Surprisingly, experienced dentists often charge LESS than their inexperienced counterparts. By fostering strong relationships with suppliers and labs, maintaining in-house labs, and minimizing complications, experienced dentists can bring their costs down without sacrificing quality, and many times pass those savings on to you.
An inexperienced dentist needs more time, takes more steps, and has more complications to do high-quality All-On-4. So the inexperienced dentist needs to charge more for their All-On-4 up front in order to cover the additional visits and costs they are likely to have later on.
D. What kind of dental implants will be used for your All-On-4?
Experienced All-On-4 dentists only use the highest quality materials. This is not the time to be cutting corners with second-rate, discount brand dental implants and materials.
But aside from the brand, there are also different TYPES of implants. They all serve different purposes, and have their unique pros and cons.
There are implants with different sizes, shapes, and composition. Some work better in certain areas of your mouth. Some work better in certain types of bone. Some work better when there is lots of bone, and others where there is barely enough.
A VERY experienced dentist has many tricks up their sleeve, and many tools in their toolbox, and will be adept at mixing and matching to find the perfect solution for YOUR unique situation.
E. How long will it take to do your All-On-4?
The older way of replacing a full set of teeth with dental implants meant you would be wearing a regular complete denture held in by denture glue while your implants healed. This healing period could be anywhere from 4 to 12 months, depending on how much grafting is required. Obviously this is not ideal, since avoiding annoying loose, poor fitting, rubbing dentures that gag, cover your palate, and move around when you eat and speak, is the whole point of doing dental implants in the first place!
The newer method – All-On-4 – not only avoids the major bone grafting, but it is also a SAME DAY solution. That’s right – with an experienced dentist who knows how to properly plan your case, you can walk into the office in the morning with a broken down smile, and a few hours later walk out with a brand new set of teeth supported on dental implants that looks amazing, feels natural, and never has to be removed.
And since there are fewer visits and surgeries involved with All-On-4, you also save cost.
F. What material is better for your final All-On-4 teeth – zirconia or resin?
In general, there are 2 main materials that are used for your final set of All-On-4 teeth.
Zirconia is a porcelain-like material that is traditionally the strongest material available. It is very difficult to work with and to fabricate, which increases the time and cost of your All-On-4.
Resin is the second type of material. It is not quite as durable or long-lasting, although modern resins are getting better and better all the time, and it will only be a matter of time until they’re even stronger than zirconia! These resin materials are a lot more friendly to work with, sometimes saving you cost in your All-On-4 pricing.
3. Long-term Costs and Considerations
A. How much does it cost to maintain your All-On-4?
All-On-4 dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for patients with missing teeth or poorly fitting dentures. However, as with any dental treatment, nothing lasts forever, and regular maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity of your new smile. Your All-On-4 needs to be professionally cleaned and maintained, just like natural teeth. While you can’t get cavities anymore, since you don’t have any more teeth, you CAN still get gum and bone infections around your implants. The best way to prevent this is to have your dental hygienist clean around your new teeth to get the areas that you just can’t reach at home, no matter how many times you brush, floss, or Waterpik.
The cost for this kind of maintenance can be several hundred dollars for each visit.
For our All-On-4 patients in Hamilton, ON, we include 12 months worth of cleanings and maintenance to get you started on the right foot.
B. How much should you expect to pay to repair or fix your All-On-4?
Nothing lasts forever. All-On-4 is a premium solution, and is the very best that modern dentistry can provide to replace a full set of teeth. But nothing is indestructible or lasts forever. Eventually it is very likely that something needs to be repaired. Sometimes your bone starts to shrink away, or your new teeth chip, stain or break.
If your new teeth are made out of zirconia, this can be a very complicated and costly repair ($5,000 to $10,000). In addition to the cost of the repair, it can take weeks or even months to fabricate a new set of zirconia teeth, leaving you with a broken set of teeth (or even worse no teeth!) while it’s made.
If your new teeth are made out of resin, the repairs are much faster and easier.
At our All-On-4 implant centre in Hamilton, ON, we go an extra step by keeping a digital copy of your final teeth on file. Should anything happen to your teeth in the future, using the magic of 3D design and 3D printers, we can 3D print a brand new set of teeth that’s an exact replica of your old ones and have it ready for you within about an hour!
C. Does dental insurance cover All-On-4?
While it’s impossible for us to know exactly what your policy covers, in general the answer is no. You should not expect your dental insurance to cover All-On-4, or any other dental implant solution.
Remember – your dental insurance company is NOT on YOUR side. They are in the business of collecting as much money in premiums as possible, and paying out as little money in benefits as possible.
D. Do any dentists offer a warranty on their All-On-4?
One thing that helps to offset those long term maintenance and repair costs, and more importantly buys you peace of mind, is a warranty. If you are investing tens of thousands of dollars in a new smile, it’s entirely appropriate for you to ask if your dentist offers any type of warranty on their work.
At our Hamilton area dental implant centre, we offer a written 7-year warranty for ALL of our dental implant patients, including our All-On-4 patients, so you can feel confident that your new smile is built to last, and that we’ve got your back for the long haul.
In conclusion, All-On-4 dental implants provide a premium, life-changing solution for those suffering from severe dental problems. While it’s impossible to give you an exact quote of what All-On-4 costs, a good ballpark is to budget as if you’re going to buy a car.
Remember – there isn’t just one way to do All-On-4. At our All-On-4 Dental Implant Centre in Hamilton, ON, we have a variety of workflows, materials, and methods, all at different price points. The key is to find an experienced dentist you trust who can walk you through the process and help you find the best balance between what you want, what you need, and what you can afford.
The cost of All-On-4 treatment varies depending on a number of factors, such as the number of implants needed, the need for bone grafting, the experience of your dentist, the type and brand of implants used, the timing of the procedure, and the materials used for your new teeth.
And don’t forget to also consider the long-term costs of maintenance and repairs!
