All-on-4™ is a revolutionary new technique that is used to reduce the amount of invasive surgery required to replace a set of missing teeth. It uses only four dental implants instead of the usual six to ten.
Once you have been determined as a suitable patient, you will have a CT scan of your mouth to test bone quality. If you have any teeth that have a bad level of decay or about to be lost, they will be removed. The implants are then placed. In time, osseointegration will occur, and the implants will fuse with your jaw bone. This provides maximum stability for the implants.
The dental bridge is then attached to the implants. Bridges can be attached on the same day that the implants are inserted, and the patient can leave the practice with a full set of teeth intact and ready to use.
The All-on-4™ technique, including the removal of any teeth necessary, the fitting of implants, and the construction and fitting of the bridge is at a fixed cost of £15,950 for the upper or lower arch. same day smiles™ have finance plans available to assist with this payment, providing criteria is met.Learn more..
Dental implants are made of a titanium that very rarely fails to join with the body, and it has never been found to be harmful to a patient. The rate of success for dental implants is very high at around 98%, and studies have shown that successful implants cared for and maintained appropriately may last a lifetime. The best way to guarantee the success of implants after surgery is to maintain meticulous oral hygiene in both the period after your surgery, and for the rest of your life. The success rate for the All-on-4™ technique is very similar to any other implant procedure.Learn more..
The All-on-4™ procedure uses just four dental implants, which means that it can be carried out more easily than the traditional six to ten dental implants. The way that the implants are positioned with the All-on-4™ treatment means that there is unlikely to be any need for bone grafting, as the procedure takes advantage of the stronger bone in the front of the jaw. All-on-4™ patients can generally walk out of the surgery on the same day as the implant work is carried out with their fixed prototype teeth. This is a huge advantage over the traditional implants, which in the past have required patients to wait several months for the implants to integrate into the jaw bone before they are used.Learn more..
As with any surgery, the All-on-4™ procedure can leave some patients with tenderness. If you experience some pain or swelling, you can take an over-the-counter painkiller such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, but you should not need this for more than two or three days. The benefit is, although your gums may be sensitive after the treatment, your set of replacement teeth will allow you to eat and drink with confidence.Learn more..
