If you are embarrassed to show your smile because you have lost teeth over time, All-on-4 dental implants can make you smile again.
The All-on-4 dental implant system is a revolutionary dental technique that offers a permanent solution to missing teeth. The treatment refers to supporting all teeth on just four implants, making them look, feel and function just like natural teeth. The procedure is particularly suitable for patients who may have missing, decayed or broken/chipped teeth.
What are All-on-4 dental implants?
All-on-4 dental implants can support a whole arch of teeth using only four implants. This can be used on either the upper or lower jaw and immediately replaces missing teeth which not only look and feel similar to your natural teeth, but function normally also.
How does All-on-4 work?
All-on-4 consists of four titanium implants inserted into each jaw. These implants act as a foundation for a bridge. A fixed set of teeth, which will look like your natural teeth, can then be added to the implants replacing your teeth.
The procedure uses an implant supported bridge to completely replace all your missing and damaged teeth, and give you back a perfect looking smile with all the functionality you can expect from a set of normal and healthy teeth. The fixed bridge is a permanent and long-term solution that requires very little maintenance and less care than removable dentures.
All-on-4 has many benefits, including:
Efficient treatment and recovery time
All-on-4 requires less work than other implant supported bridges that require anywhere from six to eight dental implants.
Compared to other types of dental restorations, All-on-4 requires very little maintenance once the procedure has been successfully completed. The permanent implant supported bridge doesn’t require any special care or maintenance other than regular daily cleaning with a toothbrush and floss.
Single visit procedure
Dental implants can be planted on the same day as extraction, which can mean a single visit where appropriate.
Safe, secure and affordable
Secure placement deep in the jawbone, so implants will not shift or loosen. It doesn’t require any bone grafts, which adds to the total cost, to be done prior to the implant surgery for it to be successful.
How can All- on- 4 improve my smile?
All-on-4 is a complete oral rehabilitation that will give you beautiful looking teeth and allow you to speak, smile and laugh with renewed confidence. Your new set of teeth will be perfectly aligned and have just the right shade to match the rest of your remaining natural teeth if you choose to restore only one arch.
Functionally, your new All-on-4 bridge will work just as well as normal and healthy natural teeth. Since it is a fixed replacement, you don’t have to worry about having your teeth fall out like you would with dentures.
Your new All-on-4 bridge will also be modelled and designed using advanced CAD/CAM technology to make sure you get a perfect fit. Before getting the implant surgery our dentists will perform a 3D scan of your jaw, gums and teeth which ensures that extremely accurate measurements are made so that your new set of implants supported bridges will come out perfectly the first time around.
